Favorite Walk: When Grandpa takes him for long walks 2.
Best Tricks: Sit, Down, stealing dad's socks & passing silent gas.
Arrival Story: Found through Champion Breeder: MtnHighMinis.com Frankie was a gift to my wife for our second wedding anniversary, but soon became daddy's little boy and best friend. Has helped dad out immensly with life in general.
Today I got a special bath. I love my new mobile groomer Steve. He always plays with me, gives me treats, and because I don't like the hair dryer, he actually towel dries me.
Tomorrow is a little scary, maybe more so for dad than me. I have to have a minor procedure done. My last visit to the vet found two tiny cysts on my eyelids that the Dr. would like to get rid of now before they have a chance to get bigger. They don't bother me yet, but Dr. assured me and daddy that this is common in my breed and may grow. At this stage is just a cosmetic surgery.
While I'm under they are gonna also pluck my ears, brush my teeth, express my glands, and check for the possibility of a 'infection' in my no-no area. See, I've been kinda licking a lot more than normal down there, and Dr. wants to make sure I don't have a fungal or yeast infection.
It's all pretty much routine, but daddy gets nervous anytime they put me under, and especially since they need to cut something by my eye. I will be in recovery all day, but I do get to go home and wear that silly collar for 24 hours. I guess the only upside to that is daddy will be home with me all night to take care of me. I like that.
Even for Southern California, it jumped up into the low 90's in our neck of the woods the last few days, and will continue to do so for the the two before we get a small reprieve.
When daddy came home from work last night, we wited until after 7pm before we went for a walk, and even then I was panting hard when I got home, so plenty of water for me.
Daddy opted to sleep downstairs last night night on the couch, and of course, I kept him company. Our upstairs thermostat read 87 degrees at 9pm, and that with the ceiling fan on and windows open, so we cracked the windows downstairs, grabbed a few pillows and camped out. It was fun, but I'm kinda used to it as I sleep there during the day anyway.
