Thanks to my Aunt Christie who babysits me so that I can play with my brother, Cooper. She and my mom work together to do great things and I think she is the BOMBDIGGITY! I love and appreciate my furry and human family! Woof!

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. – Charles M. Schulz

Chocolate is my favorite COLOR but humans seem to think it is delicious too! It was such a fun night greeting all of the trick or treaters and getting loved on by tons of kids. I may not have had chocolate, but I had my share of treats and played several tricks on my much smaller shihtzu brothers. Happy HOWLLLLLLLLOWEEN!

I am so happy today. Full of energy and spunk. Feeling much more like my normal puppy self. So I’m NOT perfect right now–who cares? I am smiling, playing, loving on my family and ready for the world! I EVEN jumped into the front seat of mom’s car today without any help. Woof!

Mom and Pop babysat me and Brylee tonight. We both napped. Most of the time, she makes more noise that I do. I go outside to do my business–she goes right in her pants–ewwww! However, I think she is pretty great and look forward to growing up together as pals.

It is SOOOO good to be home.

I have had a long week trying to get better and now my work continues at home. I have been blessed with fabulous care from Dr. Bogue and her staff and have been loved so very much (appreciate the notes and photos from all).

This afternoon, my brothers and I have enjoyed a full-fledged puppy palooza party. I think they actually MISSED me! We even made music with our toys–and discussed starting a four-legged boy band and taking our act on the road.

Where am I today? I am slower and less coordinated than before I got sick. I’m a bit wobbly at times and am not fond of stairs right now. I am on a bunch of drugs for the next five weeks and we still don’t have a definitive answer as to what really happened with me BUT, we are hopeful that I am on the mend. I am up and moving around, eating fine, playing with toys and other pups and when I get tired I just lay on the ground and play more–I feel my inner puppy bubbling through again.

Glass half full? It is ALWAYS good to be home.

Money will buy you a pretty good dog but it won’t buy you the wag of his tail ~Kinky Friedman

Today I am trotting a little better and my tail is wagging a bit higher. I even went up the deck stair’s at Dr. Bogue’s. I like my new buddy, Albert and have a bit more giddy up to play. Everyone’s fingers are crossed that I am on the way to complete recovery. Thanks for the notes and the love makes my tail wag tall! Woof!
