Well here I am, just one month shy of my 3rd birthday - I can hardly believe it...I've had so much fun so far - except for these stupid allergies - I wish I could eat everyone elses food without barfing - think I'll keep on trying anyway - no one notices except if they step in it before Drake cleans up after me!
I was born early in the morning on December 22nd, 2002 - I came all alone, I heard them ask where my brothers & sisters were, but it was just me - guess that means I'm special!!
When I was about 2 weeks old, I went for my first car ride to the Vets 'cause Momma Deuce got an infection & the milk tasted gross...The Doctor said I looked great & to keep feeding me the powder they were mixing for me...Then that night I barfed and barfed every time I ate...my human Mommy had to give me needles 'cause I was dehydrated - then I stopped breathing two times - and she was there to save me again... I heard the Doctor say I had pneumonia - we sure are lucky Mom's a nurse!!
Then, just when I grew out of that, I had seizures for 24 hours straight, I didn't count but it was every 1/2 hour or so between that they were giving me honey in case it was my sugar - but nothing helped- It was awful and I remember hearing my Mommy & Daddy crying, saying if I had one more before 10 am, then they were bringing me someplace that made them cry even harder...So I waited till 5 after 10 to have my next seizure - they said it was a sign of some kind -not sure what that means, but they called & ordered some really great stuff called "narcotics" that knocked me out for another 24 hours and I've never had another seizure since!!
After that I grew like a normal puppy - I live with my fur Momma & her boyfriend Drake - he's not my real Dad - they say my Dad lived next door - and Momma liked him 'cause he was one "bad boy" they called a "Pitt Bull"..his name was Rampage & he moved before he even knew I was born... I love Daddy Drake more than anything in the world - and he loves me just like I was his own...I'm sad though, 'cause he's been sick since February - they call it lung cancer - now he takes pills everyday like me - and he seems okay & he's really nice - he's always happy & he kisses me and loves me so much & if he doesn't feel like it, I nibble on his lips and make him!!
Since I was little, I was always throwing up...and really really itchy - and at first the vet thought I had a bacterial infection, but after a month of pills I still scratched, then she said it was mange - IMAGINE?? ME MANGE?? so we all had to have the treatment, but again I scratched...so my human Mommy asked for some allergy testing, my blood went all the way to California & sure enough - I'm allergic to LOTS of things like grass, flies and ants (I eat 'em anyway)...I take allergy pills every day and it helps so much - I know if I could just quit eating stuff i'm not supposed to, I'd be better - but I have too much fun sneaking stuff and it all tastes so good!!
Well that's my life so far - I love EVERYONE, even the Rotweillers that live next door - but I like them best threw the fence - I met a "cat" this summer too - in my own yard - it was the first time i'd ever seed anything like that in my life!! I looked at my Mom to see what I should do and she told me it was a "nice kitty" & I could tell by her voice that I shouldn't be mean to it, so I left her alone - my Mommy thought I was the best boy in the whole world after that, cause Momma Deuce told me I should stomp on kitty's, but she's not the one who buys me my special allergy food & all the treats that i'm allowed to have!
Well that's all for now - i'll write more again when I have time...I'm heading out to eat some of that cold white stuff that fell from the sky today - I hope this doesn't mean that I'll have to wear those stupid things on my feet that make me walk like a guy in flippers - so embarrassing - although I love it outside so much that it keeps me from having to hop around on 3 feet like after the first time I was out in that cold white stuff... see you soon!! Love Puckie
