On Thursday I was off to the office of mobile vet with Charlie, Sunny and Chip. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I made the appointment for the 3 of them together. It took me nearly 10 minutes just to get Chip into my van. He was nervous, but he relaxed once we got there. By the time we left, Chip was feeling confident enough to take treats from Mobile Vet, and he just hopped up into my van when we were leaving.

Then of course, there's Charlie, who is good no matter where you take him. Back at home he enjoyed another bowl of ice. Judging by how he acted, I'd say it felt good on his face.
One thing that I did at the end of the week was to go through some old pictures of Charlie. I remembered that I got him from the shelter in late July. But I had a question in my mind about the year. Was it 2005 or was it 2006? Not that it really matters.
I found the pictures I was looking for, which are the first ones I took of him. They confirmed what I thought. Charlie came to us in 2006. Thirteen years ago. Wasn't he a cutie?
I loved seeing the other pictures of those familiar faces that were on the disc too. They all made me smile and made me feel a sense of nostalgia.
