Sadly Iโ€™m not going to wherever this picture was taken, however, another semester in the books for tech school!!!!! . I canโ€™t even believe myself sometimes, how far Iโ€™ve come in this journey. I restarted my pursuit of my degree and credentials in mid 2016 and Iโ€™m hoping to finish up next year! . Iโ€™ll still have to pass the VTNE and a state board exam, but the fact that Iโ€™m this close makes me so proud and also terrified at the same time! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฌ . If you have a goal and you want to pursue it, donโ€™t hold back! If itโ€™s education, start with 1 class or free courses in the field. If itโ€™s learning a new skill or hobby, try it out today! . Life is short! Donโ€™t hold back! Find the things that fill your life with joy and set your soul on fire! . . . #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #vettechstudent #studentlife #sjc #lvthereicome
New Christmas ornament from @jamminhammerjewelry ! Love it! She does beautiful work. #lifeisbetterwithboxers
Iโ€™m here to confess! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ . Honesty is the best policy right?! . Lately I have been eating like crap ๐Ÿ’ฉ Emotional eating due to stress, convenience, low will power! You name it! . For some reason veterinary clinics are also a magnet for candy and sweet treats, and when youโ€™re super busy itโ€™s way too convenient to walk past that candy bowl and grab another mini bag of sour skittles, or a fun size Twix bar, or have someone run across the street for a $1 taco! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ . What are we doing to ourselves guys?! . I ordered a #3dayrefresh this week and I cannot wait til it gets here! . It is time to reset my body and my mind and care for myself the way I care for my boys and for my patients! . . . . #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #snoutsquad #heydrandy #dogswithdm #wheelingsuperheroes #selfcare #youcantpourfromanemptycup #loveyourself #3dayrefresh #liift4 #beachbody #youarewhatyoueat #nourishyourmindandbody
Sometimes people really wear me out! ๐Ÿ˜ดDonโ€™t get me wrong I love my job in veterinary medicine but... It. Is. Exhausting! . I spend all day talking to people, using my brain - a lot, being physically active lifting up animals, being pulled around and contorting myself into awkward positions, and being mentally and emotionally challenged. At the end of the day I usually donโ€™t even want to talk to myself anymore let alone anyone else! ๐Ÿ˜‚ . Sometimes the best medicine is to snuggle the ones you love! Life is short. Snuggle your dog! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿถ . . #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #snoutsquad #heydrandy #dogsgetheartdiseasetoo #boxerswitharvc #dogswithdm #wheelingsuperheroes #selfcare #youcantpourfromanemptycup #loveyourself #introvertmuch #sotired #mytiredistired
Iโ€™m not a huge bread eater. I love bread but it doesnโ€™t like me. And quite frankly I hate paying almost $6 a tiny loaf of the gluten free stuff from the H-E-B when we canโ€™t make it to the commissary, which btw itโ€™s less than $3 there. . Occasionally Iโ€™ll indulge in comfort food in the form of toast and peanut butter. I used to eat it a lot as a kid, I think thatโ€™s why I enjoy it so much now! I smell peanut butter and my stomach thinks โ€œtoast!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ While in @wholefoods last week I found this new peanut butter! Friends!! #homeplatepeanutbutter is made in the USA with minimal ingredients and it is delicious!! You have to try it! . P.S. they didnโ€™t pay me to say this but if @homeplatepeanutbutter would like to send me some free jars Iโ€™d totally accept ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . . #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #snoutsquad #homplatepeanutbutter #peanutbutterontoast #comfortfood #nostalgia
I recently started to only work a half day on Tuesday and though we realllly need the money due to my husband not working right now, Iโ€™m taking full advantage of the extra time I get to spend with my boys! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿถ . I have homework and papers and social media stuff to do and I should probably do some more CE but instead, after a morning of dental cleanings and appointments, I came home, showered and put on pajamas! All before 2:30pm!! ๐Ÿ˜ . I fed the boys their lunch. I spend a lot of time lying on floors and dog beds lately. Mainly cus Kato doesnโ€™t really like to get on the bed / furniture without help, his mobility issues make him nervous to climb ๐Ÿ™ But he still plays with his toys and we do training on the ground and whenever he wants to be up somewhere, he lets us know and I get a workout for the day! Ha! Mostly multiple times a day - and weโ€™re happy to oblige! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’™ . I love when Loki comes and lays on me like heโ€™s still a tiny puppy! ๐Ÿถ Heโ€™s been doing this since I brought him home at 9 weeks old! ๐Ÿ˜ Now heโ€™s 12 and weighs almost 80lbs! ๐Ÿ’™ . Guess Iโ€™m learning to enjoy the extra time off work and training myself to somewhat wind down and relax - even if it is only for a few hours a week! Ha! . . . #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #snoutsquad #heydrandy #dogsgetheartdiseasetoo #boxerswitharvc #dogswithdm #wheelingsuperheroes #selfcare #youcantpourfromanemptycup #loveyourself

Only 24 hours left to vote for Kato!!
Who says you canโ€™t teach a not so young dog new tricks?! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿถ (I refuse to use the word old for them! ๐Ÿ˜) . Enrichment is important at any stage in your petโ€™s life but especially for those who canโ€™t be as active anymore physically. . Keeping their minds engaged will keep them happier, mentally fit, enriched and engaged. Dogs love training at all ages and learning new things keeps them sharp! . Degenerative Myelopathy is a condition of the body not the brain, and Kato loved our mini training session we had tonight! . I havenโ€™t used a clicker with them in forever but itโ€™s amazing to see how they remembered right away what it meant. When I first got it out I just clicked it in the kitchen and they both came running, well as best Kato can anyway! ๐Ÿ’™ . Next time you have a spare 10 minutes, spend it engaging your pet. Dogs, cats, heck even chickens and fish can be clicker trained! . Life is short, our four legged family members are with us for way less time than we could ever hope for, for me forever wouldnโ€™t even be long enough. Love them, play with them, train them, keep their minds engaged and their lives enriched! . #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechstudent #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #snoutsquad #heydrandy #cvcaaustin #dogsgetheartdiseasetoo #boxerswitharvc #dogswithdm #wheelingsuperheroes #handicapablepets #clickertraining #positivetrainingistheonlytraining #fearfreepets
Dropped off goodies for all my colleagues this am before the sun ๐ŸŒž came up! . It may be #vettechweek but I decided I didnโ€™t want anyone to feel left out so I gifted our rockstar receptionists too! No clinic can run without them, we all have our part to play to keep the engine that is the Hospital running! . Tried to be the slick and have people not know it was me but apparently they all recognize my handwriting...thanks #paperrecords ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ . Thank your veterinary technicians this week - and all veterinary employees! They love their job but often go unrecognized and would love a thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š . #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechstudent #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #snoutsquad #heydrandy #loveyourpetloveyourvet #vettechweek #dogsgetheartdiseasetoo #boxerswitharvc #dogswithdm #wheelingsuperheroes #handicapablepets

If anyone needs a new dog bed these are At Samโ€™s club and theyโ€™re super comfortable and awesome for older, Senior or arthritic pets. Kato weighs about 76 lbs and he doesnโ€™t sink into the foam, it always springs back up and itโ€™s heโ€™ll often sleep here instead of the human bed ha! Definitely worth the price. Weโ€™ve had the others about a year and theyโ€™re still holding up great, the only reason we got extras was to have spares for the car and the living room. #sertafordogs #memoryfoampetbed #madeinusa #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechstudent #vettechlife #dogmom #vetmedlife #heydrandy #loveyourpetloveyourvet #dogsgetheartdiseasetoo #boxerswitharvc #dogswithdm #wheelingsuperheroes #handicapablepets #physicaltherapyfordogs

Today is world mental health day! ๐Ÿง  . Did you know people in the veterinary field have high rates of anxiety, depression, and even suicide?! . Veterinary professionals have a tough job! We treat multiple species, our patients canโ€™t talk to tell us whatโ€™s wrong, we just have to know and figure it out. We work long hours, spending all that time away from our own pets who we miss terribly, so we can ensure your pet is healthy, happy, and vaccinated! We do that because we love our jobs and are called to serve pets and their people! . We advocate for our patients on a daily basis because we want whatโ€™s best for them and their family. We donโ€™t just pull answers out of the clouds or make stuff up on a whim. Weโ€™re educated, compassionate, caring, loving people! Thatโ€™s right, weโ€™re people! We laugh with our patients and their families, we cry with them, we celebrate milestones with them, we mourn with them, we chat with them, and when you say hurtful things, we hurt too! Probably much more than you could ever realize! Be kind to your veterinary team members, they love your pet more than you probably think or know they do. To those patient advocates: donโ€™t give up! Youโ€™re making a difference. Youโ€™re an example to others and an inspiration to many! . And for those who are struggling with mental health issues, stress, thoughts of hurting themselves or anything else, please reach out. You matter! You are loved! And we care! . #worldmentalhealthday #endthestigma #itsokaytonotbeokay #reachout #wecare #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #boxerswithdm #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechstudent #vettechlife #dogmom #youareabadass #surroundyourselfwithpositivity #bekind #vetmedlife #snoutsquad #heydrandy #loveyourpetloveyourvet

You know how you just look at your dogs and they just fill your heart without even trying?! ๐Ÿ˜ My boys are my happiness on the crappiest days! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿถ . I just love these faces! ๐Ÿ’œ Their soulful eyes, the wrinkles on their forehead, Lokiโ€™s big sausage neck, Katoโ€™s bat ear, their gentle kisses, well maybe sloppy in Katoโ€™s case!๐Ÿถ .

Lokiโ€™s incision is finally closed up all the way and heโ€™s already gained back 2 of the 5lbs he lost post op! ๐Ÿ™Œ heโ€™s still anemic but his bloodwork is looking a little better each week (time for me to buy stock in idexx I think the amount of labs I send them on my boys! ๐Ÿ˜‚) hopefully things normalize a little more with each recheck ๐Ÿ™๐ŸคžSo happy to have my boy back to being a naughty nugget and playing like a pup - albeit for short periods of time but if that makes him happy thatโ€™s what we want! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜ #wannabestayathomedogmom #boxermum #motherofboxers #boxersofinstagram #boxersoftexas #boxerobsessed #boxercrazy #boxersbeforepeople #dogswithdm #fuckcaninecancer #dogsgetcancertoo #boxerswithdm #snuggleyourdog #kissyourdog #playwithyourdog #yourdogonlylivesonce #lifeisbetterwithdogs #lifeisbetterwithboxers #vettechstudent #vettechlife

Loki got to meet Dr. Daly today at HOTVSC!

Well itโ€™s back to reality and work for me today! But first, a visit to an oncologist for Loki to get another opinion on his thyroid cancer and hopefully some additional alternative/complementary recommendations. . Itโ€™s been over a week since I worked so letโ€™s see if I remember how to adult and poke needles into animals ๐Ÿ˜ .
