Pumpkin Patch/Update on Lucy

Last weekend Justin was home and he promised me weeks in advance a trip to the pumpkin patch. I only require a few things regarding holidays and attending the pumpkin patch, purchasing pumpkins, and taking pictures is a must each year.

Justin was not thrilled about the weekend we picked because it was 91 degrees out. He said it didn't feel like fall. But we didn't have many open weekends a head of us and I couldn't bare the thought of skipping the pumpkin patch this year. So he put a short sleeved shirt on...and took it like man!

Our first trip to the pumpkin patch as Mr. and Mrs.

We got our "perfect" pumpkins.
1 for him. 1 for me. 1 for Lucy.
If you will notice we chose a mixed breed pumpkin for our mixed breed dog.
We put a lot of thought into it. :)

I heart this picture and this little red bench. Last but not least....Lucy with our pumpkins.
She is thrilled. Can't you tell?

Speaking of Lucy. It is time for an update on her.
We went back for her blood test following her heart worm treatment and it came back NEGATIVE! So, the vet cleared her to exercise. Which was awesome because she has been confined to leash walks for 4 months. And for a dog that loves to be outside this was torture for EVERYONE involved. She would just cry and pace the floor. SO SAD!
We will go back in March for a second blood test and hopefully be cleared for good.
WooRay for a healthy pup.
Please make sure and give your dog heart worm preventative. I would be happy to field any questions you may have, it is totally worth it. Heart worm treatment isn't cheap. The preventative is worth the bill and your pups life!

Remember to participate in my giveaway!
It will end on Wednesday! I'll announce a winner on Thursday
