We went to the bark park today. It was pretty cold this morning so mom put a wool blankie that her grammie made her around me cause I was shivering in the car even tho I was sitting on a new wool back-seat blankie just for me. After dad scraped the windows so we could see out, we left for the bark park. I was beginning to think I had done something really bad and was being punished by not going to the bark park but mom explained to me that first there was too much snow to even get in the park and then she was sick and then dad was sick. Even tho we hadn't been since Christmas Eve day, mom managed to walk 4 round trips of the park. I was so happy to be there I kept making whiney noises. I almost ran out of pee to leave pee-mail.
Now the bad news. Mikey died. Sassy and her parents hadn't been to the bark park either cause they were so sad about Mikey. He had cancer and had been fighting it for a long time. His mom and dad said they were glad to get the pictures of Sassy and Mikey we gave them just before Christmas. Sassy has two kitty sibs that help keep her company. She and I ran around and barked and played. It was good for both of us. I told her to be extra nice to her folks and give them lots of licks and hugs so they could get over their sadness. I miss Mikey too. He was such a sweet and gentle soul but I know he is waiting at the bridge and playing and not having cancer.
I also saw Cookie (looks like Tin Tin but fatter), a boxer named Vito, a border collie, the huskies and their Esky friend. A chow mix came up to me and tried to get in my face but I was having none of it. Also the bearded chocolate lab-like dog. He is great fun. I will have mom get his name from his dad.
Now the best news! Everyone was saying on the comments that mom should have given me some liver. She hadn't actually gotten any liver at that point cause she refuses to eat liver. This weekend when she went to the butchers, she got a half pound of beef liver just for me. She cooked it up with garlic. It's been cut in small pieces and she gives me some every little while. This is what it looks like after cooking. I just love it. It is soooo yummy.
She's going to make me some more turkey biscotti too. She hasn't gotten up the nerve to get me a turkey neck like Sunshade gets or try pumpkin. She wanted to know what pumpkin does for a dog. Maybe you guys can tell me.
C-K-C (doing happy dances cause she went to the bark park)
