Oshawa: Where Only Creepy Old Men Shop
Since Fielder looked like this today: He unfortunately could not partake in our mini puppy outing...fortunately for me, Missy had an extra puppy that I could borrow...my first time with my very own lab! We went to the Oshawa Centre and nearly got molested while waiting for four hours for the Amy's to show up....only creepy old men shop at the OC!!!
Missy had to stop by another store first though, and left me in the car with the two dogs (which would explain the weird looks people parked next to us gave me), so of course I took about a billion pics.
When the Amys finally showed up, we walked around the mall, ate lunch, and ran away from scary old men.

No Dog? What?
It is so peaceful and quiet around here!!!!! It DEFINITELY sucks not having a puppy....I can't even remember the last time I was at home without a puppy. Weird.

It's His One-Month-Before-His-Half-Year-Birthday BIRTHDAY!!
aka he's five months old today! Happy five months Fieldy!
Today is also one year to the day I brought the little Petesters home! I miss him lots ='( But I'm glad to know that he is doing well in the kennels so far! That's my boy :)
So today we embarked on quite the adventure. Someone had the bright idea to make Fielder's vet appointment at 9:40...which meant I had to wake up at eight. EIGHT!!!! On a Saturday!!!!! Which sucked. But we did get there half an hour early, and luckily, there was nobody waiting, so we were seen right away :)
But anyways, the reason we were going was because Fielder had broken his upper right canine and we were going to go get it looked at. As it turns out, it is fine, as it is loose enough that the adult tooth will probably be able to push it out. But if it doesn't, the vet will take it out on Thursday (when Fielder is getting the snipsnip ;) ) along with....his manly bits.
And there was this really weird thing that Fielder did in the examining room...he made a few rounds, then sat in a corner and stared at me....is that normal? Like, does everybody's dog do that? Or is Fielder just a freak?

Tip of the Day
Even if you wake up groggy, disoriented, and depressed on the first day of school after Christmas break cause your puppy is gone and you haven't seen this side of noon since two weeks ago, you should probably try to concentrate on putting your clothes on right.
Because if you don't you might just find out during FOURTH period, that that tank top you put on under your uniform? Might be on backwards AND inside out. And then the whole class might laugh at you. And then half the class might ask if that was the top that they too had gotten from Bluenotes for ten bucks. And then you might be a little embarassed.

This morning we dropped Petey off at Breslau. It wasn't as bad as I thought, I guess... I only cried before we left and on the ride home, and at home :P ....I nearly cried when it was time to leave, when it really hit me that I was probably only ever going to see Petey once again, at the most, maybe.

This is NUTS- we're all psychotic, we really are. Why do we even do this....we get puppies for a year, make them the most important things in our lives, housebreak them, socialize them, fall in love with them....and then give them back.
Ever since Petey was a teeny little puppy, people have been asking me: "Aren't you going to miss him? How are you going to give him back?" And I reply with the standard "Well it's for a good cause, and you know what you're getting into....besides, you just get a new puppy after!" You promise yourself you're not going to love the puppy with your whole heart- you know he's not "yours". But logic never does control the heart or the emotions, really. Petey is my first dog, and everyone says the first is the hardest to let go of. Though it's not as bad as I thought it would be, it's still the saddest I've been in a VERY long time.

Sleepover in HIcksville
On Thursday we GO trained it out to Oshawa- as far into the hicks as the transit system will go, and AmyG and Zoom and Amy's mom was there to greet us. (p.s. Aims I love you for asking the GO train man if you had missed our train before it was even the scheduled time for us to arrive)

the hardest part...
is knowing that they'll be gone in a certain number of days...its like some sick sort of countdown, except usually you look forward to the day you're counting down to....ya, not so much this one.
The past few days has been a time of very conflicted emotions....sad that he's leaving, but excited to see where he goes...worried about what's going to happen after he leaves but knowing its the right time for him to go.
The worst part is that in knowing that you have a limited time left, you want to remember every moment, memorize their scent, the pattern their fur swirls around in, but knowing that in time the memories will fade and the stupid camera won't even capture what you want it to.
But the very best part is knowing that soon you will (hopefully) be attending a grad to see your little baby all grown up and doing the job he was born to do..
