We decided to stay home today, in spite of the fact that I'm still on vacation. We did have to run to Ames for a little bit this afternoon so the kids could do some last minute birthday shopping. Then we picked up Daisy after a long stay with the vet. She quickly got all slobbery wet in her bucket of water in the back yard. When Rachael and I picked her up, they said she was a big fan of the little swimming pool they had outside behind the vet. And she apparently got along great with anyone/all the other animals there. That's not a big surprise though, it's the main reason I picked this breed in the first place. And she is a very nice dog.
