Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
Today we visited the wonderful folks at Santa Marietta Animal Hospital for one final heartworm test and to have Lacey's stitches removed from being spayed. I am happy to say that Lacey finally has a clean bill of health. Dr. McLean checked Lacey's heart again and no sign of the heart murmur she had we she joined us. So the murmur was indeed the result of the heart worms.
To celebrate Lacey and I took our first out in public walk. It was just "she and me" time. We went to Roswell Area Park where we took a leisurely walk on the "white" trail, a 1 mile path through the woods and past the various ball fields where children were playing baseball, football and soccer. That meant a good bit of crowd noise as well as lots of other walkers and joggers (with and without dogs). At first Lacey was skittish with all the activity but about halfway through our walk she began to settle down and actually seemed to enjoy the crisp weather and all the new sights.
We are back home now and Lacey is happily taking a nap on her pillow. We will continue to walk in the wonderful parks in our city and help Lacey experience what it is like to be a happy, healthy dog.
