However, given that she might have been feeling cranky from sleep deprivation and it's her birthday week, I will forgive her and move on to more important things like an update on my health and happiness.
*Thank *you *EVeryone
for your advice and for asking after me!
I think my humans were quite worried because I've been quiet and mostly sleeping for 2 weeks. I stopped harassing The Typist for food. I didn't even want to cuddle with My Cushion or go for walks! To be honest, I don't know what came over me [and neither does Dr Dog].
But I'm back now and ready to push my humans' buttons again! [Strangely enough, they seem quite pleased with that but I'm sure the feeling will soon pass.]
Here's an update on what's been happening this week.
My Cushion took me shopping over the weekend. Since I now have to be on leashed walks, he bought me a new harness. It has a nice padded front and is very comfy. Considering I've had to make do with my old half-chewed one with a broken buckle for more than a year, I'm a little suspicious of this largesse.
"Why are you suddenly being so nice to me, Cushion? Are you feeling guilty because you let me jump the wall and hurt myself and gave me the lamb ear that [allegedly] made me fart?"
He also bought me this pillow. It's supposed to stop me chewing my toes. Just between you and me, it doesn't work too well [maybe because I'm a flexible dog] but I like it heaps better than The Horrible Thing so please don't tell my humans I told you so.
My pillow's name is DoughNut.
Thanks Ms Jean for telling my humans about DoughNut. I'm so grateful you suggested it! Thanks Flo's Mama for telling my humans where to get it here in Stryliah, and for offering to send me one!
I haven't had to wear DoughNut the last few days though because I've stopped trying to eat my paws. But I now have raw skin and scabs from trying to eat them last week so The Typist has to give my paws a medicated wash every! other! day! for 2 weeks.
The Typist asked Dr Dog if it was a good idea to wash my paws in salt water as well and he said "Yes! That's a good idea!"
Thanks Ms Rose for giving My Typist this good idea.
Here I am enjoying my soothing oatmeal and salt foot bath.
You can see how
disgusted thrilled I am that I now have salt foot soaks to endure look forward to as well as my medicated baths.
In other news, my neck is much better and I can now turn it around and look up.
Here's a picture of me on my 3rd visit to Dr Dog. Don't worry. It's G-rated even though Dr Dog is feeling me up.
Unfortunately, my back left leg is now ouchy. Dr Dog had a look at it and thinks it could be a c.r.u.c.i.a.t.e l.i.g.a.m.e.n.t problem and we'll have to keep an eye on it. [I think this means I'm stuffed and won't be playing with my friends or jumping down walls
for a long time forever.]
"Please don't tell me I'm not as young and nimble as I used to be. A Lady does not need to hear rubbish like that."
And finally, the most important update of all, and the one you've all been holding your breath for.
Yes. I have stopped farting.
Thank you Person In Charge.
