... if I missed your Barkday, or your Gotcha day, or a Dogster honor in the past few days. Condogulations, and I hope you had a pawsome day, and got lots of treats and attention and pressies!!
I try to keep on top of things, but mommy's confuser has been out of commission. Daddy took it to the office on Monday, and mommy didn't get it back until last night, and then it was all different and she didn't even know how to use it! A man from the office had to come today to show her what to do. I liked him, and he liked me, too! I soopervised while he poked at mommy's confuser, and he scritched my ears.
Mommy's still trying to figure it all out, but I did get to visit a few groups tonight. And I saw my pal Rascal was Dog of the Day! And Jelly, DFB and Whisper were all Daily Diary Picks!!! I already knew Beanie was Dog of the Week! I love having famous pals!!!
Mommy is still wrapping pressies and trying to turn our house into a cross between Bethlehem and the North Pole. She hasn't even started addressing my Christmas cards! And now she has to start working again, if she can figure out how, BOL!! But she promised to let me come play on Dogster just as much as she can!

OMD, I'm a Daily Diary Pick! I'd better write a new entry, BOL!!
I'll write about yesfurday, which was Thanksgiving. I heard an awful lot about food in the past week, especially turkey. Well, I didn't get any special food. In fact, I spent the whole day at thew Wag Hotel, and I got kibble for din-din, like always. That's okay, I love my foodz!!
It was furry crowded at the Wag. I guess a lot of pawrents were doing whatevfur my pawrents were doing. I had a lot of fun! Here's my report card:
"Hershey spent Thanksgiving in Tiny Town, a playgroup for the cuddly cute littlest All Day Play pups. There, he got to cuddle up with staff and play with his friends while they discussed whether or not they should go to Pawtrero or Pet Food Express to score some Black Friday savings! Today he is thankful for tennis balls, soft beds and his family." My playmates were Sophie the spaniel mix, Brownie the mini dachshund, and Cupcake the terrier mix. I was bigger than all of them, but they didn't mind.
I'm going back again today! I wonder who will be there?!!

I got a package in the mail!!! And it isn't my barkday or Christmas or anything!!!
Mommy had just lifted me up onto the grooming table fur my brushing, and we heard *knock! knock! knock!* on the door. I couldn't jump down (it's too far!), so I BARKBARKBARKED while mommy went to see. And there was the postman with a box! Mommy put it down until after my brush-and-walk. She didn't even tell me it was MINE!!!
When we got home she opened it so I could see inside. There was a note from my pals Abby and Lucian!! I could smell them!
Inside the box I found a Hershey bar!
and a giant kiss!
OMD, I LOVE them!! They even squeak!! I might not even de-stuff them. I'm still deciding. Thanks, Abby and Lucian!!!!

This morning mommy and daddy took me to the vet so he could see how much better my ears are after his ear-scrunching bandage came off. He says I'm just fine now!
From there they took me to the Wag Hotel. Again! I spent the last two evenings there, and today I got to spend the whole day! They put me in All Day Play so I could have fun and meet the other doggies. I sniffed Hello to everyfur, then I found a comfy bed and curled up and went to sleep! BOL!!
At the end of the day mommy and daddy came back fur me. When we went out to the car, it had been peeing! Daddy drove it fur a few blocks, and then it started beeping at him and a light came on. He had to stop, and there was steam coming out of the front of the car! Mommy took me to find some water to drink. When we got back we saw a big truck with flashing lights. There was also a big man, and he was chaining our car to his truck! The next thing I knew, mommy was strapping me into my car harness. I figured we were on our way home, but mommy and daddy didn't get into the car. They disappeared! I couldn't see them at all, and then the car started to raise its nose in the air!! I was in the back seat all by mywoof! And then the car started moving! I couldn't see where I was going, but I decided it was kind fun, driving the car all alone, with its nose in the air like that! I was the king of the road!!
Finally the car stopped, and all of a sudden mommy and daddy were there! They let me out of the car and I looked around--and we were home! I think I did a pretty good job!

I'm back from the vet, and my ears have been LIBERATED!! He took that awful bandage off my head fur good, and he took the stitchies and staples out of my neck and I feel like a dog again and not some kind of mummy! My ears are kinda sore and itchy, though. Mommy keeps wanting to squirt junk in them and wipe around in there and squirt more junk. But at least when it's ovfur I can jump down and shake and scratch and rub them on the carpet! I'm free!!!

This is just a quick update, becuz I promised! Mommy took me back to the vet this morning to get my bandage changed. Just when I had almost gotten it off!! He took off the old, dirty, ratty one I'd been working on, and put on a new one just like it! All clean, the way mommy likes it. Now I have to start all ovfur!! That's the bad news.
The good news is that my lumpy was a benign sebaceous tumor, and it's all gone! :0) So now I only have to get the bandage changed one more time, and after that I'll get the stitchies and staples out, and then I'll be as good as new!
All of you pals have been so kind and generous with your pawrayers and rosies and encouragement, I can't thank you enuf! I just want to say to Coco, there is a light at the end of the tunnel!!

Well, Mommy took me to the vet this morning after daddy furgot to give me my brekkie!
This isn't my usual vet, but he was furry nice. I don't remember much, I took a nap almost as soon as I got there. When I woke up I felt kinda loopy and my neck hurt. I had to stay in a cage fur a little while, but it was okay, I napped a little more.
Befure I knew it, mommy and daddy were there to take me home. But furst mommy and the nurse put a sweatshirt on me, with a hood that was supposed to go ovfur my head. That was the vet's idea. Only the hood was too small and kept popping off, BOL!!! That was okay, because my neck was really itchy and I wanted to scritch it. But evfurry time I did, mommy and daddy would yell "NO!!" and try to grab me. Then mommy would pull the silly hood up again and we'd start all ovfur.
That was fun until I got a really GOOD scritch, and then I sprung a leak and started bleeding all ovfur! Mommy had to get a dishtowel to hold against my neck, and back to the vet we went!
This time he put staples in my neck, and then he wrapped bandages all around my head so I can't get to the itchy place. It kind of hurts, too, but mommy gave me a pill after din-din, and now I'm napping again. There's a piccie on my page of me in my bandage, crashed out in daddy's lap!

It's a momentous occasion. Truly monumental. Today, I turned six years old! You might bark, "What's so special about that? I know furs who are more than twice that old!" Well, of course evfurry barkday is special, and the more we have, the happier our pawrents are! But at my house, six is a milestone.
You see, both mommy and daddy have had other doggies in their lives. But neither of them has evfur had a doggie fur more than five years. Daddy had three little doxies growing up, and one after the other they each went to the Bridge befure turning six. :( And mommy's doggies all had to leave her fur new homes, or she had to leave them, sometimes after only a year or so.
I'm the furst doggie they've had togefur, and they wondered when they got me if I would break their streaks. They always knew we'd celebrate my sixth barkday in a big way! Oh yeah!! I'm six today!! And I'm happy as can be! No one knows the future, but my plan is to stay right here for at LEAST another six years! Happy Barkday to ME!!!
But, we're not having the kind of celebration we expected. I have to spend the day at home, with a donut on my neck. This week mommy found a boo-boo on my neck. It got worse and worse until we had to go to the vet last night. And the vet says I need to have an operation to fix it. He wanted to do it today! But mommy and daddy said it was my Barkday and he said it could wait until tomorrow. Meanwhile, I can't go to Fort Fun in case I got some dirt in my boo-boo, and I have to wear the donut because I keep scritching at it.
On the plus side, after the vet we went shopping fur a barkday toy and I got a new loofa guy! And I have some furry special treats my pawrents got while they were visiting daddy's mommy. And really, there isn't much I'd rather do than spend a day on the couch with daddy anyway! Happy Barkday to ME!!!
I also want to thank all my pals who have sent me rosies and photos and cards and other wonderfur barkday gifts! I love you all SO MUCH!!! I always say, I have the best pals on Dogster!!!

It was an unusual day from the furry beginning. We all got up early, and mommy gave me my brushing while daddy was still in the shower. I know what that means: an adventure! Soon we were in the car, and the next thing you know, we were at the Wag Hotel. I go there a lot. Sometimes I'm in an all-day play group, and then mommy and daddy come and we all go home. Or sometimes I go in the evening when there is no play group, but I get my own place to hang out in and nap, and then mommy and daddy come and we all go home. This day it was All-Day Play! I wagged my tail bye-bye and trotted off with the Wag lady, and had a furry nice day with lots of other doggies.
But at the end of the day mommy and daddy did NOT come fur me. Instead, I got a room and my din-din and a new stuffie that smelled like them, and I spent the night. Well, maybe they just furgot.
The next morning I got my brekkie in my room, and then I went into All-Day Play again. I made some new furiends and sniffed around and took up my post to nap...er, supervise, and had another furry nice day. But mommy and daddy still didn't come, and it was was back to my room fur the night again.
The next day, it was the same story. I was beginning to get the picfur.
I had a new life and a new routine. Not a bad life, spending my days with some furry nice doggies, and lots of different people who gave me lots of attention and snuggles. A guy could get used to this! But, where was my daddy?
It went on like that fur seven days or years or something, until TODAY!!! I got up and had my brekkie and went into All-Day Play as usual, but just as I was settling in, the get-out gate opened and someone said MY NAME! And the next thing I knew, I was on my furry own leash and on my way out to the front desk, and mommy and DADDY were there and OMD OMD OMD!!!! They took me outside and I jumped in my car and they brought me home again!!! And my supper dish is still here, and my water bottle and my crate and all my toys and my couch and EVFURRYTHING!! Daddy took me around the neighborhood so I could catch up on my pee-mail, and now we're both snoozing on the couch! The Wag is furrific, and All-Day Play is a lot of fun, but there's NO PLACE LIKE HOME!
