Hello everyone. Yes it's me Mishka... can you believe I'm still going strong at my advanced age? It's amazing isn't it? Mum thinks I'm immortal! Despite my very old age and a touch of arthritis, plus the huge benign lump on my ribs that the vet won't remove I am a very happy girl. In fact I'd say I'm feeling happier now than I did up to around six months ago. I think that after I had that Grand Mal fit two years ago it affected me in subtle ways for a very long time afterwards and it all made me feel depressed and grumpy; but these days it seems to have lifted off me and I'm much more like my younger self full of Tigger sparkle - I even try a tiny bounce sometimes! I even try running a short way on our walks, which is hard, but it makes me smile and wag; then mum says, take it easy girl, you don't need to run at your age - but as long as I can do I will do!
Mum has been so caught up in trying to get through 2011 that she hasn't found any free time to visit Dogster with us, but she says that she'll try to keep in touch with you all this year whenever she's able to. I hope everyone is well; especially all you oldies. We hope to be able to visit you all and send/reply to messages soon.
Mum will be taking new pics/vids of me this week to show you how well I am. I will come back and visit as soon as mum has some free time to spare. Lots of wags and licks to you all. xxxx
