We were looking for a companion for our senior dog, Toby. We had raised Toby and Tugger together from puppies and Tugger had passed away earlier in the year at age 13. They were from the same litter and inseparable. Since Toby had always been the submissive dog we did not want a puppy that would be dominant and make him unhappy in his senior years. Bailey turned out to be the perfect choice. From the time he came to our house at 8 weeks he always deferred to Toby giving him kisses each morning and following him around during the day. As Toby got older and his sight and hearing lessened Bailey took over for him. He would always run and nudge Toby if Toby was in another room and something was happening. When we went for walks on the beach and Toby lagged behind and then got confused, Bailey would run back and nudge him to get him going in the right direction. I think that Bailey made Toby's last two and a half years much more enjoyable and Bailey learned a lot about being a dog from Toby. I have included a picture of them together.
Where's the ball?? stick ??

Oliver is always telling stories about me so now it's my turn. A week or so ago I had itchy ears so my mom took me to the vet and he gave me ear drops for my infection. I really hate having my ears cleaned so my mom thought the drops would be a problem. She got some ice cream and each night she would tell me I could have ice cream after my drops. That was a good deal so I behaved pretty good, at least for me. Then both Oliver and I got ice cream. But that wan't good enough for Oliver. After a couple of nights he started arrrooooing and barking and talking to my mom as she was doing my ears. My mom thought maybe he wanted his ears done too, so now each night she calls him over and he scrunches down, and she puts bottle cover by his ear and pretends to put in drops. Then he shakes his head and goes over to his mat for his ice cream. Can you believe it? What a little twerp!!!

I had my operation yesterday and everything went fine. The vet is pretty sure it is nothing serious but we'll know for sure when the test results are in. They cleaned my teeth and decided to pull one of my little front teeth. Now I have a gap there so I guess I will have to make sure my tongue hangs out when I smile. Bol. I have to wear that stupid cone again. Rockie sent a comment to my diary that gave an address for a really nice cone. It looks a lot more comfy than mine. My mom took a picture of my butt and put it on my page. How embarrassing is that!!!! The stitches are right at the top of my tail and my mom says I better stop wagging my tail so vigorously or I will pull them out. How can I do that. Wagging my tail is what I do best!!! Woofs to every pup. Thanks for all the POP messages!!!

I am having a lump removed from the top of my tail tomorrow. It has grown a bit in the last month and the vet thinks it should be removed so they can check it. I am going to have my teeth cleaned at the same time. My mom is a bit worried about the lump but hopefully it will be nothing. I will tell all the details when I get home tomorrow night. I suppose I will be back to being a conehead again. It seems like I can't get rid of that stupid thing.
