Sparky's Treats


College

My human went to college yesterday. I knew something was different when mom came back and Scotty wasn't with her. It's awful quiet, and even though he has the best bed in the house it wasn't quite as comfortable as usual. For the last twelve years he has taken care of me and been my best friend. He's still my best friend and I can't wait for him to come back soon! It's so hard with all of the kids go to college! They should make room for pets!

 

The BIG 11

Well I made it to 11 years old last Monday! My mom and dad chose St. Patrick's Day as my birthday when they found me and took me off the streets in October of 1997. The vet said I was about 6 months old at the time, so they picked a spring holiday and St. Paddy's day it was. And my family is Irish to boot! I wonder if they have any Pit Bulls in Ireland?

I'm really getting old. My hips hurt, I have stomach problems and I'm cold all the time. I can't wait for the summer weather for sure! Basking in the sun is what I do best!

 

A Decade of ME!

I just turned 10 years old! Time sure does fly. For a special dinner I got leftover chicken (no bones please) and some good tasty skin. That is my favorite part. I also got a piece of rawhide, which I am going to save for later. I buried it in a special spot. A couple of months from now it will be all nice and tasty from the fermenting :)
