For the first weekend in a very long time we did not have any pet sitting assignments so we enjoyed a stay-cation with our three fur babies. Living near Lake Norman is a blessing…and the weather this weekend was perfect.
On Saturday Luke and I dropped in at the Open House at Main Street Veterinary Hospital in Cornelius. What a nice place that is. We saw lots of evidence of teddy bear surgery and teddy bear dental work. It was my first time in the surgical suite of a veterinary hospital and I was impressed. Luke is an old hand at dental cleanings so he did not flinch at all.
After we left “surgery” we meandered down to Davidson and caught the tail end of Davidson Town Day. Luke took a few snapshots of the giant stacks of books outside the library.
While Luke and I were out and about Trooper and Daisy Mae helped Daddy with yard work.
Sunday was another great day so the humans took Trooper and Daisy Mae to Lake Norman State Park for a hike.
Luke stayed home to guard the homestead. We love the 3 mile trail along the lake shore but we were all worn out by the time we returned home. Hiking with these two is different from our hikes with Luke and our late Beau. Daisy Mae and Trooper were well behaved but clearly need a little more trail certification training!
All in all we enjoyed our stay-cation. Now we are ready to get back to pet sitting and dog walks on a little more even terrain (and shorter routes than 3 miles).
