Poor Cole has licked some sores on the back of his legs and has gotten it infected. I think he looks so sad in
his collar.

That is the classic "How could you do this to me?" Boston look.

I get that every morning before heading out to class.

And when I take them to the vet.

And give them a bath.

And take away the magazine they just shredded.

Or scold them for digging a crater in the backyard.

LOL, my list includes those things too.
When I first put it on he froze, wouldnt move an inch. I put him on the couch
with a pillow under his head for support, he went right out. :-)
Your icon is cute. Whats the date?
Alanalook_its_alana on April 24th, 2010 03:10 pm (UTC)
I have never had to cone my dog(s), but I'm sure if I did, it would be HILARIOUS (not to them of course!)

Thank you! That is my wedding date, and the picture is actually mine and my fiancé's hands over the beach (we're in Florida.)

This is the first time he's needed one. I thought to myself before I went to the vet that he's be getting one. It is pretty funny. lol
Thats is a pretty cool pit :-) My date is July 10th.
You getting excited?
Alanalook_its_alana on April 24th, 2010 03:19 pm (UTC)
Awesome! Congrats!

Excited is an understatement lol. We've been engaged since January 2009 and the first year of it took FOREVER for me. We're both in college (he graduates in 2 weeks) and this past semester has FLOWN by with how busy we've been between school, job(s), and the last bits of planning. Whoo hoo! Every now and then I get the butterflies like "Holy crap we're actually going to be married soon!" Once I had my bridal shower and sent out the invitations it really felt real.

How about you :)

I agree it goes slow at some points. I get butterflies too but I try not to tell him , someone needs to be the strong one. lol but overall im excited and nervous, im not one for the spotlight. heh.
Im finally getting my BA too this year after a 7 yr gap. So I know ho it feels to plan and be in school. We've only been engaged since Dec 09 but it feels like forever.
Do u have much planning left to do?

We actually just paid off the various vendors/companies and the honeymoon. Everything is done, it's just a matter of waiting now :) We wanted a longer engagement so we could have time to plan accordingly while in class and not be so stressed. Our parents are helping us with the wedding but we're still paying a good 1/2 of it ourselves. I learned really quick anything with the word 'wedding' in it immediately jacks up a price 100% lol

Where are you honeymooning?? We have 12 days in Hawaii (which we still can't believe!)
just another daynympha on April 24th, 2010 03:59 pm (UTC)
I totally know what you mean, the prices are so jacked up for weddings. I think I can finish everything next month after school is without any probs. I just need some things for the ceremony and the favors. What are your favors? Have you gotten the rings yet? Im having such a problem finding ones I like.
Its def good to have help, we did as well and saved alot too.

Hawaii sounds awsome! Im jealous. lol I think we are waiting a bit to save more $ and he can have more time off from work. We may do Europe. I moved to the UK 3 yrs ago but we are doing the wedding in North Carolina.
Alanalook_its_alana on April 24th, 2010 04:20 pm (UTC)
Ryan and I opted out for favors. We approx have 150 people coming, and to provide favors for that many people will rake up a bit of money. Rather than give people cheap mementos (which they'll probably throw away,) we decided to just have decorative containers of candy, and bubbles for when we leave the reception.

As for rings, Ryan bought my engagement ring from Jared, so we also got our wedding bands there as well. My band is fairly simple. It has 5 small diamonds across it, I didn't want anything super fancy. Our 2nd company for runner up was Shane Co. You can browse online, but it's so much better to go in and try them on :)

The only reason we're going to Hawaii is his parents have a timeshare, so our stay is free. But the flights and rental car are still $3K :S

Europe would be amazing! Definitely worth saving up for! I NC is gorgeous, I bet it'll be beautiful!!

I dont blame you then for not having them. They can be expensive. I think we may get personalized yankee candle votives. We are having like 30 people but the favors arent as cheap as I thought and I dont like many i've seen. I just know I like candles and would use it :-)
Im looking for a simple band too :-) Ill check out those sites, thanks.
I herd that Hawaii was expensive so thats cool you can stay there for free. Sounds like the flight is costing you guys enough.
We found a little beach to do the ceremony on. Since I have some fam there an in NY and we like NC better we choose there.
I would love to bring Cole but he has to stay here.

My dad once asked me if I would have Smudge (my older BT) as the ring bearer. Sorry Dad, I love my dog, but no. lol

Poor baby!

He is stinkin' adorable! I'm starting to get sick of those cones myself and I'm not even the one wearing it. Peedee has a hard time getting to his toys with his cone on, and when he goes to get something off the ground, you just see the whole cone do a face plant, it's pretty funny :)
