Chloe and Crafted

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! It is a beautiful day here in the Bluegrass. It almost feels like Spring! In fact, Mom took Chloe and me for a long walk this morning. It was fun to sniff the flowers. We even chased a few birds! It has been nice to be home for the past few days. This weekend was busy - even for a busy little hotdog like myself.

This weekend was one of our favorite events of the year. We spent four days in Louisville at Kentucky Crafted: The Market. We love Crafted. We get to see so many of our friends from years past, meet new faces, and hear lots of great stories. There was one minor problem this year. Chloe was sick! Right after we arrived to Crafted on the first day, Chloe started yelping. It was easy to see she didn't feel good. She has been having some pretty rough allergies. The scratching she was doing made her neck a bit sore. Dad rushed Chloe to the vet where the nice doctor gave Chloe some medicine to make her all better. Even though she probably could have made the show, Mom and Dad decided Chloe should stay at home and rest inside her kennel. A day of rest and Chloe was back to her normal self! She was sad about missing Crafted, but Mom reminded Chloe that she had not taken a sick day in years!

Since Mom and Dad worry about us, yesterday they took us both to the vet for a full check-up. Our vet, Dr. Albert, is the best vet in the world! She took our blood and even took pictures of our body (she called it an X-Ray)! She said we were both as "healthy as a horse!" I was not exactly sure what that meant, but Mom said it was a good thing! Dr. Albert gave us both a treat since Chloe and I didn't cry - not even when we were poked with a needle!

I better go! It is almost time for our afternoon walk. I will write again in a day or two! In the meantime, enjoy the weather, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
