Today I turned 7, and my day was great. Mom took me to work where I got my Birthday bath with a special Milk bath shampoo, then a little trim. Everyone gave me cookies, when we got home I had hot dogs for dinner , mmmm. After dinner they took me to Dunkin Donutes and I got 2 Dunkin munchkins, all to my self, I was truely in heaven.
my family made a big fuss over me all day, I was queen today, they even let me sit on the table when they ate dinner, I couldnt eat what they had though, I did sneak some mashed potatoes off my skin sis plate. They didn't yell at me , they said oh Chrissy, they really love me, all the other doggies were jelous. hee hee I always manage to sneak up on the table when they eat.I am always treated some what special though.

this was sent to mom, it say's what she has alway's felt, but now she knows she's not crazy.
Just a Dog
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog," or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."
Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog." Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise." "Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a human."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile, because they "just don't understand."

I have been battleing cronic ear infections and inflamation for about 2 years. The vet said I have skin allergies and this is what caused all my problems.My ears swelled so much that I had no opening anymore,I have taken many meds. and even had surgery to lower my canel opening. But it didn't help. I would scratch so much that I would rip my ear up so bad they would get infected. I started to have cronic pain, I would wake my mom up at night screaming from the pain, the vet finally decided to have the surgery to end it all . So on Jan.5,2009 I went to Garden State Hospital and there they told my mom that my ear drums had ruptured and there was no more that could be done to save my ears.I had surgery that afternoon on my left ear. On tuesday I had surgery on the right ear. Couldn't do both at once because they were working to close to the base of my brain and were afraid of swelling. I am fine today, I have never been happier, everyone says so. I play more now. My tail wags alot now. Although I am now deaf it's a small price to pay for the joy I feel now. I really didn't listen much anyway. I am a very happy doggy now. By the way Garden State Hospital is the best place to go for majior stuff. They are very kind and they loved me, even if I wasn't on my best behavior. they said it was ok cuz I wasn't feeling well. My sister Morgan was there for surgery a year or so ago, and she loved it to, everyone took turns holding her all night and that made her very comfy, and mommy not worry so much. They also had paitents with mom cuz she would call every 2 hours , and they didn't mind.
