It's all about ME! By Princess Patches
Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's me, Patches! Well, I'm no longer a fuzz butt, fuzz face or fuzz anything! Yesterday, I spent the day with Cindy, my groomer and now I'm the best looking and best smelling Aire-kid around.
Yeah, I know...Mom took my cool dude suit (aka bandanananana) off as soon as I got home because it was too loose and Penny kept pulling on it. Mom was afraid I might get choked or something, so she ditched it! She's such a worry-wart!
I was hoping to have news, today, about the UGA open house, but our mom and Aunt Wendy ended up not going. They are both having back problems and didn't feel like driving all the way to Athens. What a couple of wimps! Anyway, they are hoping to go to Grace's Birthday Pawty in the fall. They have it every year, at UGA, as a fundraiser, even though Grace and her dad have both crossed the bridge. They missed it last fall because our dad was just having too many problems for Mom to be able to leave him alone all day.
Our mom has decided that we are going to have a small memorial service for our dad on Saturday, May 1st at 3 p.m. He didn't want a funeral or any announcements in the paper and Mom honored his wishes, but now, she feels like she needs to do this for US...okay, HER! But, we'll be there too! It will be at our house and she has invited family and a friend or two. They will just spend the day remembering Dad and eating some of his favorite foods. We were hoping there would be a standing rib roast, but Mom says, "No way".
On April 20th, Penny is going to have surgery. Remember the ginormous thingy, on her back, that we thought would 'splode? Well it never did and it just keeps getting bigger. She also has a problem with one of her little doggie nipples. It is swollen and has turned a dark color. Our vet is going to take care of both problems AND clean her teefies. Our mom isn't too thrilled about putting an 11 year old dog under general anesthetic, but the vet assures her it is safe. He used it on a 15 year old dog, last week, and everything was fine! In spite of that, I'm pretty sure Mom's blood pressure will be off the charts, on the 20th! Yeah, she's been having problems with that for about a month. She even ended up at an urgent care place, one day, because it went up to 214/103. Her doctor doubled the medicine and it is better now. Not great...but better!
Well, everydoggie, I need to go have another nap. A day at the groomer's just wears me out!
