My pals Coco Rose and Puff requested an update on what's been going on here - your bark is my command! Actually, not much, which is why there hasn't been a recent diary entry.
Thanks for asking about Poochini. She's back on all four feet again and feeling fine. She and her mom are back to their usual long, brisk walks. She doesn't seem to have any PTSD which is amazing.

We have snow, ice and northeast wind here and Mom had some virus after Christmas for a couple of weeks, so I haven't been out much. I persuade Mom to play bunny a couple of times a day, but that's the extent of my exercise, ergo, I've packed on a couple of pounds. Now Mom is rationing my food again; hope I don't have to go swimming again.

Mom tells me someone is going to be joining our family next week. She's a retired greyhound named Dinah. She's already buying beds and other things to get ready for her. I've been enjoying the bed in the meantime - it's HUGE! and I really like it. I don't know how I'll feel about giving it up. Maybe she'll share it with me. Mom thinks I'll like her - she remembers how much I loved Tanner and how much I missed him when he went to the Rainbow Bridge. Dinah is the same age that Tanner was when we lost him, so it's like life continues. Mom will post a picture of her when she arrives.

Sorry your momma caught a virus after Christmas but am glad to hear that all is well now. It's wonderful to hear that Poochini has recovered from the dog attack and has no ill effects from it.

Exciting news about getting a new fursister Dinah and we can't wait to see a picture and be pals with her also. I know you're going to be a wonderful big brother. I guess it's safe to guess that your traveling days are over since I can't see a retired Grayhound sholved under the seat on an airplane - BOL, BOL.

Hugs and kisses,

Coco Rose

Hey Patch, What exciting news about getting a sister! I hope she doesn't like bunnies or is at least good at sharing. BOL! We had 3 greyhound cousins and they were real nice and laid back. The only problem with them is when we were next to them we looked very FAT! Try not to stand too close when anyone is looking or you'll be back in exercise class:( I think it will be fun to have a new sister!!! Great news about Poochini!! Teddy and Casey
