Monday May 4, 2009 Mom had to go out for a few hours. She left all of us at home, not uncommon. Well I decided that I would eat a leash coupler. For those that don't know, a coupler attaches two dogs to one leash. This is something similar to what I have done before, so it was no surprise to mom. She just hoped it would pass.

Tuesday the 5th I had an appointment to go to the Vet. Just for my routine vaccines. Well the dogter had bad news to tell mom. I tested positive for heartworms. Mom was very upset. She was sad, scared, and mad all at the same time. Not mad at me but herself. I had already been on heartworm prevention, so she didn't understand how this was possible, unless it was when she was a week late giving me my pill. She blames herself. The dogter told her that she should continue giving me my Heartguard Plus, unless she noticed me acting different, for the next six months. I only had very few baby worms in my blood, so the vet feels that this way will kill them and get me back healthy. If in six months their gone that's gonna be great. We can continue this way. If not then I will have to get injections in my back close to my hip bones to kill them. Mom has a positive attitude, so I think I'm gonna be just fine.

I started a Basic Good Manners class with mom on Tuesday also. I am already a good girl so I don't need the class, I'm just there to help mom teach the other puppers how to behave. Mom says it a small class but that's good cause she can do more one on one with them, and cause I can be a little unfriendly with others(mostly females) at times. I'll show her that I can do it.

On Thursday May 7, 2009 I finally got rid of the coupler I ate. It came out the top half of me and not the bottom. I had chewed it into 5 pieces. Mom's just glad it's out. Hopefully I won't have the opportunity to eat anything else. I think she has learned her lesson.

I will keep everypup up to date on how things go with the heartworms and classes. See ya later :)
