Mom told me this morning before she left for work that we're going on a vacation tomorrow. She said that we would be going to spend some time in the Davis Mountains. We're going to go for a drive and do some hiking. I can't wait. This will be my first real vacation with my new family.


More Medicine & an E-Collar!!!!

Well, Dr. K still wasn't back from his vacation so I saw Dr. P today. We can't seem to figure out what is wrong with me. I'm losing hair and getting "pimples" that make me scratch and "gnaw" on parts of my body. When we got to Dr. K's office Ryan (my favorite tech) said he like'd Mom's answering machine message and we all laughed about it. Then it was down to work. Skin scrapings showed that I didn't have mange, the Woods Lamp showed I don't have ringworm. (Mom suspected both of these anyway). Staining some of the goo from a pimple showed that I didn't have an infection in my blood. Needless to say we are stumped!!! The thought is that staph infection on my skin is coming back and that I might be allegic to something. Ryan shaved my sores and cleaned me up and then Mom got my medicine and a funny looking thing that she called an E-collar. I'm going to be on antibiotics, steroids, and antihistamines for a while and I have to wear this E-collar thing when Mom can't watch me. I HATE THE E-COLLAR!!!!!! I'm hoping this is the worst of things, but for some reason I don't think it is. I heard something about a bath twice a week, but I'm hoping that isn't true.


My Hair is Falling Out

My hair keeps falling out in patches and Mom seems to be at the end of her rope. Earlier this year she got me medication for what Dr. K said was a staph infection, but I can't seem to grow may hair back and it is starting to fall out in patches again. Mom told me this morming we're going to see Dr. K later this week and she promises to get things figured out. I hope it doesn't mean that I won't see Mom because I have to stay with Dr. K. He's nice and all but I don't want to be away from Mom and Darius.


Mom Lied to Me!!!!!

Well Mom didn't take us for a walk on Saturday like she promised, but she did take time to play with me, both inside and when we went outside in the yard. I told her just how unhappy I was with my ROO ROOs but that didn't seem to do any good. She did stay home with us yesterday, but I was mad at her so I stayed outside most of the afternoon. That'll teach her to lie to me.


Mom's Working Tooo Much

Boy I hate it when classes start at college. That means that Mom doesn't have as much time for me. This morning it seemed that we woudl be able to have the whole day together, but no, she had to leave to go to school. Something about a meet & greet with prospective students and parents. She did promise to take Darius & me walking when she got home. She also promised to stay home with us all day tomorrow. We'll see about that.


Mom took me for a walk!!!!!

It worked!!! Mom took Darius & I out for a walk a couple of days ago. We were out for over an hour and I got to see some other dogs. They were big and were black and white and brown. They didn't seem very interested in playing with us so we just kept walking. Mom got upset at Darius & I because we kept wanting to run after the deer. Maybe that's why we didn't go for a walk yesterday. Of course it could be because Mom wasn't feeling very good. She said something about a headache. I don't know what that is, but I hope it doesn't happen again tonight because Mom said something about if it didn't rain we could go for a walk tonight.


When Do I Get to Go Walking????

Boy am I mad at Mom. She hasn't been able to take us walking for such a long time. I know that she's busy with that school stuff she's always talking about, but what about me (and Darius)!!!!!! I keep trying to give her hints that I want to go walking but nothing seems to be working. I guess I'll just have to nudge a little harder. I hope it doesn't rain tonight becuase I bet I can get her to take me for a walk if I really try hard.

I still don't like it when Mom goes to work, but I don't have to be in my "house" any more. Mom now trusts me to stay in the master suite with Darius. We have access to our bed (we just let Mom think it belongs to her) and I can run around. I don't know what to make of this thing that Mom puts in the doorway to keep us in, but maybe if I'm a good dog she'll take it down some day. It is so much fun to have room to play and a nice soft bed to lounge on while I wait for Mom to come home.


I've been in my forever home for over a year

I just realized it today after my last post but I've been in my forever home as part of my ohna for over a year now. Things have been exciting and I'm still learning how to be a great girl. While I 0nly knew her for a short time, I loved Yoda and miss her lots & lots (maybe not as much as Darius & Mom). Darius is lots of fun to be around and I can't wait for him to get better so we can go on more rides and hikes. I LOVE MY FAMILY!!!!!!!


Darius is getting better

Boy am I glad Darius is getting better. Ever since we came home from the kennel where we stayed when Mom had to go out of town he's been in a bad mood. He wouldn't play with me at all and I was wondering what I'd done. Yesterday he started to play with me again, but this plastic thing Mom calls an e-collar keeps getting in the way. Maybe we'll be able to play again some time soon. I hope so because he's a lot of fun to play with.
