"Wow! What an awesome afternoon I had! First I had to go to a vet appointment so that Doc could look at this lump on my back. Mama was real worried about it. When we get out to the car to leave, it started to thunder and lightning and rain. I was nervous the whole trip! And to be honest about it, those windshield wiper thingies kinda' creep me out!"
"Anyway, we got inside without getting too wet. Then I had to get on the scale! But heck, I've lost a couple of pounds. So the new food and less treats must be working after all!!! (Little did I know I was going to get to blow my diet!)
Doc says shes pretty sure the lump is a histiocycoma. Don't ask me to spell that again. We'll give it a few more weeks and see how it progresses.
Then came the BEST PART of my whole day..... heck, my WHOLE WEEK!!! Maybe my whole month!!! And I have Uncle John to thank for telling Mama to do this. That it would help me get over being so nervous about going to see the doctor.....
THANK YOU UNCLE JOHN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You see, on the way home we went through the Wendy's drive thru window, and Mama got me a Junior Bacon Cheeseburger!! Just for me! WHOOOOO HOOOOOO! And then,we sat in the parking lot and ate together. Just the two of us!!! No other dogs... or cats... around. It was AWESOME!
And Mama said she was so proud of me! First, that I traveled so well today, especially considering all the bad weather. I was pretty calm under the circumstances, and quiet. And that I ate my burger like a real lady! She broke off little bites and I took them gently. Never making a fuss or being grabby. None of the other dogs do that! Even Rory gets a little demanding. And Jacob.... well, I won't describe how he acts. Its just plain awful! He was never taught any manners before he came here.
I hope Mama and I get to do this more often. But without the doctor visit!"
