Well, if you've missed me here the last couple of weeks, it's 'cause I've been super busy taking care of Mom. First she goes and steps in a mole hole and twists her ankle despite the fact she's only got 2 feet to keep track of! Poor clumsy thing.
She got better and I knew right off I had to get her back going for walks again. With the weather nicer, we've been going all kinds of places.
Can't believe she let me sit on this bench!
It's hard to look noble and inspiring when your paws are muddy.
Sometimes when you get real happy...you just have to dance!
Just when things were getting back to normal she gets sick again! This time a sinus infection. I took good care of her though. When she's sick she just lays there so I figure she needs entertainment. I try to provide this by bringing her things...socks, my ball, a pencil, gum out of Grandma's purse, whatever I can find! I've heard that people need lots of mental stimulation to keep healthy so I try to provide that for her.
Whew, Monday she said she was feeling better! Uh-oh...guess what that meant?
Let's put the camera away, shall we?
And the very NEXT day...out came the clippers! I guess she really IS doing better.
Then TODAY...off to my new vet! Unlike some people I know -- according to the vet I'm "the picture of health." Woo hoo! I took full advantage of the chance to make a bunch of new friends -- people, dogs, and cats. Some of the dogs in the waiting room were not quite as happy as I was about being there, I wonder why? When I sat nicely on the scale to be weighed the vet tech just sighed and said, "Wow, I wish ALL my patients were that good." I gave her a big kiss for that! Since I was so nice for my exam and shots, she asked Mom if I could have a treat. Mom said yes, and I tried to help matters along by sitting nicely as soon as I heard the word "treat." That sure made the lady laugh! If there's one thing I can tell all you young pups, it's this: Do what you have to, to impress the people with food!
That's it for now, I've gotta check and see if Mom needs another walk.
Wag. Walk. Repeat!
