Hi everypawdy – I made my mom worry some more. Remember in my last post, when it was my 10 month ampuversary, but I couldn’t go to the beach because I did a wee little face plant? (OK, 2 face plants. And then I acted all tired. And then I had some runny poops.) Well, that turned out to be nothing – just a combo of an upset tummy and too-hot weather and a boo-boo on my toenail. I knew it was not a big deal, but my mom got all worried.
Well, today I managed to make her start worrying all over again. I have been really doing great – until last night. Even just yesterday morning, I went to the beach and ran for an hour and never laid down once! It was pawesome! But then last night I hurt myself running around the house like a maniac. I had an appointment today anyway with my friend, Dr. V., so we went early because mom was all in a panic. (eye rolling from me…) Well, Dr. V. said it is just a little boo-boo on my toe again. I sprained my third toe. I can still walk around, but my mom insists on trying to carry me, which is very embarrassing because I have big long legs and they just hang there and I feel like a floppy old rag-doll.
The bummer is that Dr. V. (who is SUPPOSED to be my friend…) said I can’t go to the beach for a few days. He said only short leash walks in the neighborhood. Poo on that!
Dr. V. listened to my lungs for a long time. He said they sound great. He said if he didn’t know that those 2 lung mints are in there (mom calls them Boris & Natasha) that no one would know I was sick. Duh! I could have told them that! All they’d have to do is take me to the beach and watch me RUN! I feel awesome! Well, except for my toe now… and the pills my mom gave me which are making me sleepy.
What’s that thing called?? Medicinal napping? I think I am going to go try that.
Oh, there was one other fun thing that happened recently. We had a HUGE blackout in San Diego. It was pawesome. And my pawrents missed the whole thing! They left town that afternoon like 10 minutes before all the fun began. I stayed with my aunt and uncle and my cousin, Lou the corgi. (He is old and doesn’t like to play, which sucks.) As soon as the sun went down it got really dark. Everyone was using flashlights – and I am CRAZY about flashlights. It was so fun, barking at everypawdy walking by, and chasing those crazy beams of light! Oh, such good times. Here I am in the dark:
I hope it happens again, because I thought it was the funnest thing ever.
