Off to the Vet....and Don't these guys look scary?

Today was Lightning's annual vet exam.  He got a clean bill of health, although he has a lipoma or two that we will have to watch.  One is small, and the other one is either a lipoma or just fat.  Going to try to get a little bit of weight off him and see if the questionable one shrinks.

And while I'm posting, I thought I'd add a picture taken of the guys a couple of nights ago.  Thank goodness for Iphones....but my photography is much better when I actually use my real camera.  I think this is a funny picture.  There's no red eye reduction on an iPhone.  :)  One comment about this picture was, "It might be scary if Thumper did't look so happy."  That's our Thumper.  Always smiling.  Lightning was smiling too until he saw his picture was going to be taken.  I think he's figured out a bright flash of light is about to get him.

Introducing Thumper

Wild tail wagger (hence the name!), chowhound, affectionate, enthusiastic overgrown puppy.  Loves chewbones, tugging, and chasing lizards and squirrels.  Thinks he's a lapdog though he weighs 60 pounds...  he's the baby of the family and exploits it as often as possible.  :)

Introducing Lightning

Agility enthusiast, protector of the couch, foot warmer.  Loves walks and lounging in the sun. 

Lightning in profile - not the best picture, but without access to my full photo library, it's the best shot I had on my iPhone.
