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!

ImageToday seems a bit brighter, although I have a ways to go to being back to my regular puppy-self.  My tail doesn’t seem to want to stand up–but I am wagging it.  My back legs are a bit wonky and I seem to be struggling with a few neurological issues.  What is it exactly?  We still have zero idea, but we are staying the course and treating the treatable things and I seem to be improving each and every day.  I am spending my days at the clinic and my evenings at Dr. Bogue’s house through the weekend.  I get to hang out with her cool dog, Albert, who tolerates me (although, he hasn’t seen me at full speed yet– woof!).  I am being watched closely and loved much and surrounded by my favorite toys –not much more a pup can ask for.  Practicing patience and eating lots of treats in the meantime.

Me and my toys at Dr. Bogue’s house – I like toys again!

The sign on my kennel at the vet says “This may be the best puppy ever” and although I am modest, I must agree with Dr. Bogue–I am pretty great!   I have been knocked down pretty hard this week, but I have real heart and am fighting back to greatness every single day!

Puppy kisses to all and thanks for all of the notes and love!
