Did you ever hear of “Take Your Dog to Work Day”? It was announced the other day on the radio, but Mom didn’t hear what day it was? Dad hasn’t been able to take me on regular walks, and “we” have been sleeping a lot! So when Mom said she could take me to work with her, Dad was just about as excited as I was! It gave me a change of scenery for the day and I was sooo good – compared to Rebel (Pastor’s dog). Rebel is a big dog with a lot of energy – and he needs a lot of room to run and play. I was happy staying in Mom’s office tied to a chair!
I went back to see the Vet to have my ear checked. The infection is gone! The Doc said my ears could get infected again – because of the size (?) and the way they flop over. When they flop over, there is still moisture inside that doesn’t dry out and causes bacteria to grow. Doc said to turn back my ears and let them air out – or one of his client’s said they turned back the ears and used a clothespin to hold them! As you can see by the picture – I got the clothespin treatment! I would like to suggest a nice ribbon instead?
Dad was REALLY bored the other day and wanted to go shopping. (For ME, of course!)
Usually I get to go in to the “feed” store, but he just wanted to get a package of buffalo chews for me, so I waited in the car!42212
I should have gone in! DON’T let Mom and Dad pick out toys for you! Most of the time they have good taste in toys – BUT when they got me a “Babble Ball” I knew something was wrong! First of all the tag said “Kitty” – why would they get me a toy that clearly said it was for Annie? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? It looks like a regular pink plastic ball – but it talks, meows and says lots of random phrases and sounds? It doesn’t do anything until I touch it, then it starts talking and meowing! Well, I got sooo mad at it, I chased it into a corner and barked at it! It won’t stop!! I finally ignored it – and it stopped talking? Misty came over to visit today and I let her play with it? She thought it was very confusing also, why would a pink ball talk? Misty likes to play with my toys – but I don’t think she liked a talking ball? Next time Mom and Dad go shopping for me – I will pick out my own toys!
