Arrival Story:
Mommy was looking for a dog to call her own and wanted a corgi but saw my picture and fell in love with me. She drove to the breeder and picked me up and fell in love. I slept in her arms while she talked to the breeder for a good hour. On the way home she called everyone she knew and bragged about me. To bad she didn't come up with a name for me until three days after she got me. Silly Mommy couldn't make up her mind.

I am super wrinkly and love to lay around with Mommy and Daddy. I am not a huge fan of the rain but I will go out in it. I have anxiety attacks when I have to go out beyond my yard because of some bad experiences but, I am working them and getting better everyday. I love going to see Grandma down south too bad Missy takes up most of the room. I am Daddy's boy all the way and I wouldn't have it any other way. I like to think I am a survivor. I have stage two intermediate cancer which is currently non-aggressive and I do not let that hold me down by any means. I love my "little" sister and when I am feeling well enough to play she is the best playmate ever.

Earned his Wings.

So I know we haven't been on much in awhile but, I decided to come on here and let you guys know that Monty has earned his wings. He had been battling cancer for five years and on February 3rd we had to say goodbye to him because, the cancer had spread to his lungs and was making it hard for him to swallow and breathe. He was surrounded by love, he had myself, his Dad, his Aunt Julie and his Aunt Vickie with him when he left this world. I have been dreading making this entry because, I am still grieving over the loss and there hasn't been a day that has gone by that I haven't cried or thought to myself maybe I could have done more or done something differently and he would still be here. Missy has also been grieving too. She loved him and it took her a week to stop searching the house for him.


Just another update.

First of all I would like to thank everyone for the Birthday wishes and I also hope you all had a Merry Christmas and Santa brought you lots of good things.

Sorry we haven't been on much. Holidays are the busiest time for Mom. Then Mom's Great Aunt died just before Christmas and she couldn't go to the funeral cause of work but, did manage to go to the gathering after. On top of all that someone tried to rob Aunt Chrissy's work and thankfully she wasn't hurt and he got nothing because, she was fast and smart but, she did make Mom and Grandma worry a lot. I mean she made us worry too when we found out he handed her a note saying "I have a gun give me all your money." Normal people would listen to that kind of note Aunt Chrissy not so much. Mom wanted to beat her when she found that out and told her, it isn't worth her life.

Mom wasn't around much for my Birthday/Christmas cause she had to go to other people's houses this year. She made it up to us though by taking the day after off and spending it with us. We got lots of toys...all big and Missy keeps hitting me with them but, it's all good. Mom is hoping things slow down so she can do more with us but, who knows what 2014 has in store.


Take your dog to work day will keep going for us.

So today we spent a long time at the vet's office. He told Mom that Missy's foot sore isn't plant matter or a spider bite it isn't even an abscess. He said he believes it is a benign tumor that should shrink with an ointment and if it doesn't we will have to remove it. Then it was my turn and I am why it took so long. They removed my wrap and gave Mom some big kudos for her work they told her she was good. Then he pulled the skin tag up to look at my sore and said well we can do two things here. We can do surgery and stitch it or we can let you keep wrapping it and cleaning it like you have been and put him on antibiotics. He said either way it will take a long time to heal because, my body rejects stitches which means they have to stay in longer usually about 6 weeks instead of 2 weeks or go without and let it take 3-4 weeks to heal....we went with no stitches. He cleaned and clipped it so I don't have the skin tag which was creeping Mom out and then he wrapped it. So that means we are going to work for that many more weeks. Missy and I love going to work with Mom so it's cool with us and well Mom doesn't mind us hanging around so long as we behave.

Mom did have to go and buy more wrap and stuff for me today. While she was out she thought she would be nice and buy us a burger from Burger King and well she of course got herself dinner too. She came home we ate our burger and then Missy started hitting Mom with her foot and nudging her with her nose and such whenever Mom would go to take a bite of her dinner. Mom yelled at Missy and told her no you got yours already...well Mom should have listened to Missy cause now she is covered in hives and swelling everywhere. Grandma almost rushed her to the hospital over it but, thankfully the Benadryl (she keeps lots of it on hand for me.) kicked in and she can breathe again....she is itchy still but, at least she can breathe. She of course had to apologize to Missy who was just trying to help her out and said there might be a hotdog in our futures tomorrow. We don't mind that either though Missy is still upset with Mom for not picking up on her signals but, not too mad that she won't lay on her feet or follow her from room to room right now. I personally think Mom should go to the vet for humans but, she is stubborn and fighting it.
