Long Time No Write

Hello Dogsters! It's been a very long time since I wrote here so there's a lot to catch up on.

First of all, and most important, I'm alive! About a year and a half ago I injured my back very badly and could not walk and could barely stand on my hind legs. Mommy and daddy took me to the doctor and they recommended a very expensive MRI but didn't hold much hope and suggested I be "put to sleep". Well, mom and dad got a second opinion. This vet explained what was going on and told them that if they were willing to continue carrying me everywhere and holding me up to handle my personal business and make me rest then, with the help of some special meds, I might recover. He also told them that even if my legs didn't work I was still healthy so why not get a wheel chair. Mom and dad said ok! Well, to make a long story short, I slowly recovered and don't need a wheel chair or "sleep". I can run and walk but am just a bit wobbly in the back end. Mom and Daddy keep me in most of the time so I don't get hurt by the other dogs and get after me for running to hard and falling down. I love that I have a Mommy and daddy that love me so much and wouldn't give up.

Since all this happened we've also made some changes to our lives. We moved far away from California to a place called Arkansas. It's very pretty here and we like it very much. We drove here with all my brother and sister dogs and cats and our horse. What a trip we had with three cars,a moving van and all 17 of us animas.

Before our big trip we adopted a new sister cat. Her name is Katy. She is mostly blind but she is a real whippersnapper and gets around very well. Since we got here we got another kitty. His name is Louie and he is a crazy one.

Guess I'll go for now. Sorry it's been so long. I'll try to keep things up better.
