Dog Lips and Bunny Ears

It is impossible to give a dog a good set of bunny ears

See what I'm saying?
The elusive Elvis lip picture has finally made its debut. I have been trying to snap a picture of his silly face every since we've had him and this was a very happy photobooth accident!
CAN YOU SEE IT????!!!!
Dr. Appointment tomorrow at 4! I hope its nothing.

Charlie and the Cat

Since I've been on summer break for the past couple weeks I haven't been getting up as early as I did when I had to go to class. This morning, instead of my usual 10am wake up (I know...I'm not a morning person) I had to get up at 7:30 to have time to let CB run around before I took him to the groomer. I had an old friend help me with the early for me wake up call.

But as Chuck-a-roo and I were playing in the park I realized how much I missed being up somewhat early. It really is nice to be out in the crisp morning air with a gallon of coffee and a crazy pup. CB likes it too because he gets to play with his cat friend.
If we go to the little park early enough we always see his little (ok its a huge cat) friend. I think Charlie is more excited to see the cat then the cat is ever to see Charlie. But this is pretty much what happens every morning.
-Charlie gets hot on the trail of something
- Charlie sees Cat
- Charlie thinks Cat wants to play and runs toward him
- Charlie "plays" with Cat by running in circles around him until he gets bored (up to 10 minutes...really)
- Charlie gets bored and Cat comes over to get some petting.
(No picture, Cat moves too much) Seriously this is the friendliest (most likely stray) cat.
Not 10 minutes later Charlie then licks and walks on this dude
The End!
Ok the snail part doesn't happen on a daily basis, but it happened when I was taking those pictures.

CB is now back from Pink Pucci and looking as handsome as ever. They were extremely sweet and he was really happy when I went to pick him up. I'd say his first visit to the puppy spa was a success. He was really needing his nails trimmed (among some other things.) Obviously he wanted a post groom photo shoot.
Finding the perfect spot

Wishing he had puppy sun glasses

Look at that shine!!!

Glad to be home

Especially with his duck

Besides the CB adventures I've been trying to make an appointment with a sports medicine doctor and now I'm just waiting for them to call back. The doctor is an iron man and ultra runner, and their website says their solution isn't to tell their patients to stop running/biking/swimming/etc so I'm feeling a lot better about it. It's good to have someone understand and I really just want to be healthy and running around.

Do you take your pet to the groomers?

Have you had any good experiences with doctors? Bad?

How do you feel about google+? (If you need/want an invite just let me know)

Summer Favorites

I've been a little non existent on the internet front the past week or so.
Seriously, I even deactivated my facebook account. Who am I?
But I've been trying to enjoy my summer break as much as I can instead
of melting my brain on the internet all day. Instead I've been melting
my brain watching movies all day :]

I've gotta say that I love summer. Sure, most of that love stems from not
having to be in school (the whole time), but there are lots of other
reasons too.  But these are just 3 of my summer favorites.

1.  Outdoor activities
Swimming, biking, hiking. You name it and I love it. I love not having to
go to the gym to get my sweat on when its not a running day.

2. Shave Ice
 Sure I'm probably a bad blogger for not being obsessed with frozen yogurt,
but I really like not being sick after I eat my frozen treatsShave ice and
snow cones (the soft ones, not the gross crunchy baseball game ones) are
my fro-yo. I kinda like snow cones better because there are a million more
flavors, but I take what I can get and lime is delicious. 
(Side note: a lot of the pictures I found when I looked for shaved ice pictures involved Obama. I thought it was hilarious)

3. Tank tops
I love them all, but these are some of my favorites and wants (apparently
I only like racer backs)


And those are my top three! Don't get me wrong, there are a million things I like about summer, but the list would go on indefinitely if I didnt stop somewhere. Perhaps I'll do a part two?

On a not so lovey-dovey note, my knee is still bothering me. Its not as bad as it was, but I've been getting about .5 miles before it starts to hurt and I stop. It's getting frustrating, but If it doesn't stop in the next week I'm going to go to the doctor. I'm hoping for a miracle cure in the next couple days though so that I can keep on my doctorless streak. 

Happy summer!

What are your favorite things about summer?

When you have a running injury do you wait or go to the doctor imediately?

Have any of you had trouble posting with polyvore or just me? Layout nightmare today :[
