About Me

My photo
I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy. She will keep me for (about) 1 year, then I will head off to harness training! Please feel free to follow my blog and keep up with: Brandon's Life... As a guide dog in training

Vet visit, an award, and Zumba!

You read the title correct - I did go to the VET.
On Sunday I stopped eating my food and started having diarrhea - this went on 'til Monday, when I had skipped 3 feedings, my Raiser called our Area Coordinator and got permission to take me to the... VET.
The vet couldn't find anything wrong with me, but gave me a shot (which is when I fell off the table...) and sent me home with pills to take.
The following day I had my appetite back and my diarrhea gone!
We don't know what was wrong with me, but some say it might have to do with the "pollen" or maybe a stomach bug. I'm just glad I'm feeling better!
On to a happier thought - Mayzie passed along the "Beautiful Blogger Award" to me!
Picture of the award- it says Blogs Awards Winner Beautiful Blogger Award

Thanks Mayzie!
I've seen some different rules with this award and don't know which to follow, so I'm going to just say THANKS!
I'd like to pass this award on to ALL of my followers!

On to Zumba:
Tonight was one of my last times at Zumba (a 1 hour class at the YMCA - they "exercise" to music), after Zumba my Raiser got a picture of her, the teacher, and me together. I'm sure going to miss the Y!

Toby, I'm so glad you're feeling better. Being sick is not nice, except for the fact that it does worry the humans a lot and they make extra fusses over you. Sometimes it's just not worth it, though. Congratulations on the award. You deserve it.

wags, Lola

So glad you're feeling better. Have you ever tried a bit of raw pumpkin? Strangely enough it seems to help both when you go too much, or when you can't go at all!

The loud music doesn't bother you? I might take Bingo to Zumba then. I was afraid it would be too loud for him. 8-)
