Rob's Doghouse And Puppies

This is a picture of the doghouse Rob built. Its big and cozy. We needed a good doghouse. It is cold here and we knew that our dog would be having puppies. It is insulated and we have a heat lamp for when it is extremely cold. We have a themometer hanging inside so we always know what the temperature is. The roof is slanted so the snow and rain will run off, and it is also has hinges so we can lift the roof up for easy access and to clean it. So far it works great and our dog loves it. It stays about 70 or 80 degress inside. She had her puppies and they are now 10 days old. They are staying nice and warm. They are very cute. They should be opening their eyes anytime now. Puppies are fun and cute. Its just too bad they can't stay puppy cute forever.

Glasses for Robby

Robby now has a new look. We found out last month that he needed glasses. When they were in preschool in Delta they had a vision screening at the school. They actually took pictures of their eyes instead of just covering one side at a time. We got a letter later stating that Ryder and Ranger had passed but that Robby had failed. His eyes have a little different shape than they should. So we took him into the eye doctor and they confirmed that he did need glasses. He has been wearing them for a few weeks now. He does pretty well with them. The adjustment wasn't too bad. I am grateful we found out early before kindergarten. I would hate to see him go to school and struggle because he can't see well enough. And according to him...his glasses are the coolest because they have Spongebob on the inside of the frames and little bubbles.
