Arrival Story: A nurse at work had to find a home for Katie and I was trying to help her. Another nurse at work took Katie home on Friday, but I got a call from that same nurse Sunday night asking if I would take her because she said her husband didn't want to get attached to her because she was so old. She has been with me ever since.
Bio: Katie has seperation anxiety and takes medication for it. She does tend to worry and is reserved when she first meets someone. She fit in right away when I got her. She likes to be the boss of the house and Clyde knows this so he always lets her go in the house first or get in the van first.
It seems like forever since I found out that you passed over the Rainbow Bridge, but really it hasn't even been 24 hours ye. You were full of life and laughter and were always able to come up with some new scheme or contraption to pull one over on us girls. But at the same time you quite the gentlemen and a great friend. You'll always be in my heart Wilson and I'll see you again in the future when it's my time to pass over the Rainbow Bridge.
I almost had a birthday present for Clyde!!!!! I was in the backyard while mom was pulling weeds and I sniffed out this big mouse that was hiding in a flower pot!!!!! You should have seen the size of it!!! Boy, was it fat and I know it would have made for some good eating!!!! But, no, mom has to hear and started yelling at me, No Katie, No Katie!!! Sometimes I think that's mine name too!!!!! So, the mouse got away. Tallulah even tried to help me catch it, but she couldn't either. Clyde understood though, and like always he was oblivious to what was going on and was only interested in trying to get our mom to play fetch with him!!!!!
I had to go see my vet today!!!!! Clyde just loves her to death and Tallulah kinda likes her too, but I get really, really nervous when I have to go see her. My mom's been kinda worried about me this week because I have COPD and I've been coughing alot after drinking my water. I had to have that awful thermometer stuck up you know where. But, the good news is that my lungs sounded good. I had to get a shot and have to take an antibiotic. The vet says that alot of dogs have been coming in with allergies, so hopefully that's all it is. But, the best part of it all is on the way home I got to see a duck and a squirrel. How cool is that????? And then I got to eat supper!!!!!!!
