Sure Thing Gordon Setter Puppies - 6 WK Vet Visit

We took the puppies in yesterday for their first set of vaccinations, worming, and exam, at 6 wks and 1 day old. Dr. Moody from Bonner Animal Hospital has been our Vet for over 25 years. He and his staff do a great job with our puppies. It took 6 people to get the job done, including Dan and I. But we did get it done!

 Cute nose Delilah!

 Weights were very good, ranging between 6 lbs. 15 oz. and 7 lbs. 15 oz. Only 1 pound between the smallest and largest puppy. Everybody is getting their fair share of Puppy Chow.
 Ears look good, heart sounds good.

 First, a little "poke" and then a little banana flavored wormer! YUMMY!
 Poncho likes it!

 Leroy and Lefty, waiting patiently for their turn.


Leroy is up.....and he's the last one. Wait....are we sure?
Okay, we're good, that's everyone.

Not a problem in the bunch! All healthy and happy. I am also happy to tell you that not one puppy messed up the crate for their big trip. It takes an hour to get there. About 45 minutes to get through exams for 8 puppies, another hour of chores, then an hour home. That's a BIG trip for the puppies. We take turns with the chores and the other one stays with the puppies. Never leave your dogs in a car during warm or hot weather. 

And FINALLY................

Their McDonalds French Fries Treat!

 And New Toys Too?! Yep-pee!!

Have a great day everyone, and don't forget to hug your dog!!

  2. Aw, Karen, those little ones are just so precious! Glad they all checked out well and are off to a great start! Their pictures are adorable!
