Baby Homecoming

Saturday was the day I have been waiting for since last Sunday evening. Stu came home! Finally, everything was in place, and we were ready for the babies to come home. We made the trip down, and it was so nice to see both the babies and all the other babies on the farm! Stu […]

The day I went to Germany was Stu’s ball day. He got them taken off, as well as had his hernia fixed. I was provided all the photos by Stu’s breeder, although I will only share the non-gross ones.  The castration went in the normal fashion, but the hernia fix was quite interesting. A hernia […]

More Stubert

His name is now Stubert, as you might have guessed. I mean, it was Stu, but then one day Dave called him Stubert out of nowhere, and I think I laughed for like 10 minutes. So Stubert it is. But only on formal occasions, he will still go by Stu in casual settings. The breeder […]

Baby Steps

I took advantage of the long weekend to make the trip to visit my baby Stu. I can’t believe how much he’s grown since I last saw him! I think that mainly his joints have thickened. They look a big stocky now.  The trainer has worked with him a few times, but nothing extensive. I […]

The Bloodlines of F#

So basically, Sharpie is all I have on my mind these days. Even as I’m scratching Pony, all I can think is, Wow, Pony, you sure are fatter than Sharpie. And he is. And he’s going to be getting the muzzle of shame because he’s gotten so fat. Seriously, that Pony needs to be on […]

Vet Inspection of F#

Yesterday the vet checked out Sharpie, and he officially became mine. I basically already announced him before due to excitement, but now he’s truly and officially mine! Which means I can tell way more about his bloodlines without feeling like a weirdo stalker of breeders. But first, his vet inspection! This is the first time […]

F#

Luckily the disappointment of last weekend has faded away, and I’m feeling much better about this last weekend. I picked out my baby! This is F#, which is pronounced “F Sharp,” not “F Hastag.” Hopefully, I won’t have to repeat this over and over, but I anticipate a lifetime of telling people that. He shall […]
