SO! What have you missed?
So much fun! Zac got a new hand gun and it freaks me out to shoot. It throws your whole hand back. We went with our friends Kevin and Camille and their dog Titan, Nixon's brother. Turns out, when I actually get up the nerve to shoot the guns, I'm not a bad shot. Woot! Woot!
Lately, Zac and I have been taking little bike rides and giving Nixon's leg an ultra workout by making him run along side us. He's getting bigger and eating TONS more, but he'll never be to big for scooter rides.
We went on a scooter ride up Millville Canyon. Once we got up to the canyon where it was all a dirt trail, we let Nixon off the leash. He was loving running next to us and smelling everything. However, trouble was just around the corner. HAHA! I'm sure the suspense is killing you right? Well, there was another dog, also not on his leash. Nixon was stoked to find a new friend and immediately ran up to the dog. It was when Nixon went to sniff the other dogs 'unmentionables' that all h-e-double hockey sticks broke out. This dog was not having it. There was a lot of growling and yelping and all sorts of noises; next thing I knew, Nixon was pinned under the other dog, and the other dog took the liberty of biting into Nixon's 'good' back leg. So, we went on our way, because, really, who was in the wrong? Both dogs were off their leashes. In the end, Nixon has a big ol' hole in his leg, from the canine tooth of the angry dog.
The vet has charged us for far too many other things, so we just poured hydrogen peroxide on it and glued the hole up with super glue. He's doing just fine, and we probably saved a hundred dollars. Stupid vets. Stupid angry dogs. Then Zac started a fire using gasoline out of the scooter, while Nixon acted like he didn't even have a big hole in his leg. Ha! I love my family.
Of course, fishing. Nixon was being a complete psycho during this trip. I still love him. He swam in the freezing water to fetch some super muddy ball that he had found, and ran clear up a mountain of rocks to look for the ball when Zac chucked it up there. Then, just before we left, he ran through prickly bushes and got huge prickles stuck to him. He loved every minute of it.
Welp, that's the update for now! :)
