Our teefies are all clean!
Hi,everybuddy! It's me, Patches! Penny and I both have really clean teefies now. See my pearly whites? On Tuesday, Penny got all her staples out and it's a good thing she had a v-e-t appointment because she was having a problem with one of her feetses. When she was only about a year old, our pawrents were putting the wood floor in our kitchen. The old floor had been removed exposing only the wood sub-floor. Well, there were some gaps in it and Penny got a toenail stuck. She pulled so hard, to get free, that the whole toenail came off. Because of that unfortunate incident, that toenail has never grown back correctly. It either turns to the side, or it disappears completely.
On Monday night, Mom noticed that Penny was limping so she set out to find out why. Well, her toe was all red and hairless! The vet shaved off the rest of her furs on that toe and cut the toenail back to nothing. She's on ant-eye-bioticks and she has to have some spray put on her foot three times a day. It's already looking much better and she isn't even going to have to wear the cone of shame because she's leaving it alone. Yay for Penny!
This is a picture that Aunt Wendy took of one of our mom's Peonies. Isn't it pretty? It's called Parfait "something or other". Aunt Wendy was here for our dad's memorial.
Not a lot of people came, on Saturday, but that's okay. It was very nice anyway and some very impawtant peeps in our lives did come. We saw Aunt Wendy and Unkle Bill, Mack and Sally Ann's mommy and our dad's best friend and his wife. It meant a whole lot to our mom to have these peeps come and see us. We also got some beautiful flowers from Scruffy, Lacie, Stanley and Mumsie. Sorry we don't have a picture...our mom just plain forgot to take one. We also got some pretty flowers from the Airedale Rescue Group. Again, sorry there's no picture. We really need to get our mom back with the program!
Well, everybuddy, I guess that's about it for today. Penny and I will be home alone for a while 'cause our mom is running away with Aunt Wendy again. She says they won't be gone a really long time. We'll SEE about that! I guess it's okay as long as she comes home before it's time for us to EAT!
