Why be normal

Because in this case normal is excellent!

As each one of our dogs turns a year old, I make an appointment for them to see our “local” (104 miles one way) veterinary ophthalmologist for an eye exam. The doctor checks for any abnormalities or signs of hereditary eye disease. 


If everything checks out normal and they pass the CERF eye exam then we can get them certified through OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. Don’t let the name confuse you. OFA certifies and keeps track of many health tests besides orthopedic varieties.)

“Mom, when are they going to come pet us?”

Clancy and Oakley are our two youngest adults. (I know, some of you are thinking, “um, that’s not a Cavalier or a Poodle?” And someday I’ll tell you why we have an Australian Shepherd).

So for today, this kind of normal is awesome!
