Anxious Dog

Maybe pumpkins bring calmness?
Ruby is an anxious dog, particularly when the vet is involved.  Her annual check-up is an exercise is demonstrating calmness and meditation.  Granted, this attempt to provide a soothing environment still results in the same panting and lap-circling, but optimism runs eternal to make her feel more secure.

The check-up ultimately went fine, with the exception of a heart murmur that has picked up.  Dogs do become family members, so this caused some concern, but it does provide another chance to test or nerve-calming methods in a return trip to the vet.  Here's to hoping she is more relaxed the second time around and her heart evaluations produce results just as calm!
