It's a Hard-Knock Life

We had to take Tuck to the vet late the other night because he'd woken up with a gooey, winky eye. It wasn't any better when we got home from work, so after we'd googled and also called the vet, we decided to take him in. 

Comforting our boy after the mean old doctor and nurse took him for examination. We heard him yelp. 

It turns out that he had a tiny ulcer on his cornea, so he was given some gel to put on his eye, and a fun cone to wear 24/7. He was NOT thrilled about the experience and tried to wriggle out of the cone.

Trying to cuddle up in bed with the cone was harder than anticipated.

Made it work.

Still playing even with the cone. He looks like the hissing dragon things from Jurassic Park.

We took him to Petco to cheer his spirits and to finally get him a name tag, and we also got him this bone he liked by the checkout. He decided to sit in the entryway to get a head start on it.

Poor ol' Winky.

Sunday afternoon naps with the invalid.

Carson's Trip to Salzburg (July)

Well, this is a few months old, but Carson went to Salzburg for a week at the beginning of July. He left on a Sunday morning and got back at 4am the following Saturday. While he was gone, I went to Paris with Jaime, and the day after he returned, we went to Scotland. A week after that, we packed up and came back to the States. So it was a busy time, and I never got the chance to get Carson's pictures from him, and then I forgot to do anything with them.

The group was small, and Carson really enjoyed the company of the others who studied with him. They were under the instruction of Kristen de Troyer, and Carson says that it was one of the best decisions he's made, going to do this. We went to Salzburg last August, and really thought the city was so beautiful, so I'm really glad that Carson got the chance to explore it and the surrounding area more closely. I don't necessarily know details of all the places he went, so here are just a bunch of pictures!
