It has been a very busy few days, well, today hasnt been busy, I am just lazy today :)
At the beginning of the summer Emma and I made a deal that if she went all summer without eating sweets that she and I would have a mother/daughter weekend. She did an amazing job and so I made us reservations at a resort in Scottsdale and we planned to leave when surgeries were done on friday. As luck would have it it was crazy busy friday with not only a full surgery schedule but a bazillion walk ins!
One client from phoenix brought in three cane corso pups to have their tails and dewclaws removed and his male to have pennHip x rays done. All three pups had dewclaws on all four feet that were very extensive and one of them also needed to have a hernia repaired. Then a german shepherd came in for vomiting and lethargy and he had a foreign body that I ended up having to cut out of his intestines.
It was after 2 before we got away from the clinic. I was not really paying attention and in a hurry because I knew that Emma was very excited about going and therefore was speeding down by the college and got pulled over! Thank the Lord that this is smallville and the officer knew who I was and he told me to go on.
We made it to the resort by 5:30 and got checked into our room and headed out to dinner at Fogo De Chao! The service was horrible but the food was great. After that we went back to the room and Emma went swimming while I watched. In the morning we had breakfast and then headed off to the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. First stop was a hair salon where I got my hair highlighted and Emma had hers cut off. She looks absolutely amazing! I even managed to get her talked into getting her ears pierced. There was a lot of drama and tears but she got it done and has been so happy about it since!
She is so beautiful!
We left the mall and headed east and stopped and did a bit more shopping and then off to home! Three hours later we were home safe and ready for bed! Got up sunday and went to church and came home and got ready to go to the gym for explosive bench workout.

We were open today at the office but it has been pretty slow given that it is Labor Day. I am ready for it to be over and to go home and fix dinner and get to bed early since I slept horrible last night.
We have a client that frequently cant pay his bill and when he starts getting scared of Tammy he will trade a french bulldog puppy for part of his bill. I dont need any more dogs so I decided to raffle her off to raise money for Relentless. We raised $3000 in two weeks. It was awesome! If you havent done so please consider donating to Relentless. All the money goes to support families that have children with cancer or other life threatening illness.
