A big THANK YOU to everypup who put in a good word with the Big Dog for Sassie's Gma. We didn't go to the bark park last week due to mom's accident but went today and mom asked Sassie's dad how Gma was doing. Sassie's dad said she came thru the surgery fine and is walking around with the help of a walker. You guys are just awesome.
I was taken to the vet by dad this past week along with my 3 kitty sibs. We got shots, licenses and micro-chipped. I got my nails done also. It's the law in Albuquerque that you have to have your pet spayed or neutered or pay a breeder's license fee of $150.00 per animal and $150.00 per litter. Everyone must have a rabies shot and everyone must be microchipped. I don't particularly like going to the vet but it was OK this time. Actually the fun was before the trip. Mom has told dad I don't know how many times the order in which to get us all together. It goes like this:
1. Put Charlie out in the yard temporarily.
2. Get Nerise first by going by her on the bed and suddenly grabbing her and stuffing her in her cage.
3. Get Simon and put him in his cage.
4. Get Worf and put him in his cage.
5. Take kitty cages to truck and put in back.
6. Return to house, get Charlie, lock up house and put Charlie in front of truck.
At Vets, take kitty cages in first and then go back for Charlie. When retrieving from Vet, put Charlie in truck first and then kitty cages.
Well- what really happened! Worf and Simon got caged. By this time Nerise was doing zoomies all around the house, totally freaking out. I was trying to help dad get Nerise. Dad finally had all doors closed to other rooms and Nerise was in the living room. Dad couldn't find Nerise but I knew where she was. I poked my head under the TV table to let dad know where she was (hiding behind the video tower). Dad couldn't see her (grey kitty in black hole) until she lifted her head and he saw her eyes. He grabbed her and stuffed her in her cage. He took all of the kitty cages to the truck and then came back for me. When we came home that night it was snowing. Mom had just gotten home from work so she helped bring all of us in. I was so glad to be home. I was very thirsty. I don't like the vet water so chugged down a lot of my home water. Mom gave me a cookie. I ate most of the cookie and then horked it up because I drank too much water too fast.
Valentine's day - there was 2 inches of snow when my mom woke up to get ready to go to work. She had brought worky work home the previous night (she had heard the weather report and was prepared) so worked from home all day. Dad called in sick as his leg was bothering him and he didn't want to slip and slide everywhere. We got a total of 4 inches of snow on Valentine's day. Later in the day the snow had melted off the roads and mom and dad went out to their favorite Italian restaurant for an early dinner. They were back home by 6pm and fed us then.
I have to say I like my new diet. I get oxtail or beef rib or turkey neck every morning. I get the EVO canned and kibble in the evening sometimes supplemented with beef liver or turkey biscotti or what I can beg from my parent's meal. This morning (before my meaty bone and after the bark park) I got pumpkin mixed with yogurt. I also got some scrambled egg florentine (eggs, cheese, spinach, rosemary).
In addition to the regular dogs (Cookie, Sassie, Baily) there were a bunch of other dogs at the park so I ran and played hard. We got there early this morning so there was about a half hour that dad threw Mr. Ring for me and I chased it. I am one tired dog. I am down for a nap before dinner.
