Amazingly all TEN pups passed the eye CAER exam perfectly! I was so pleased and proud. Typically, there is always a 'ding' or small imperfection that does not impair vision or anything like that but this time, PERFECTION!
They all did great there and the vet techs came in to take them around as they always do. While I waited for the drops in their eyes to adjust the pupils, the techs picked their 'favorites' and go around the facility showing them off. These pups have had so much socialization and they love people. I am very lucky to have such great families that visit and amazing vets.
Once we were back home, I gave them lunch while I set up a very crude bathing station. It was hot and I took advantage of giving baths outdoors. Tomorrow, they go in for their surgeries and I always give baths the day before because they cannot have any baths for ten days after their operations.
I can't say any of them loved it but they were all cooperative enough to get the job done. :+)

|After a quick towel rub, they were put back into the small outdoor pen to dry up a bit.|

This was the first time I did baths outdoors and it worked out very well. I will do this again in the future if Mother Nature complies.
