I went back to the vets on Wednesday. She took my bandage off. My foot is feeling much better. I still have to be on antibiotics for a few more days, but the wound is healing fine. I will be seeing the vet one more time this Wednesday just to make sure I am all healed.

Yesterday was Saturday. Mom gave her class on how to pick a puppy. She held the class at the Maynard library. Quite a few people came and mom did a good job. I couldn't go because for some reason, dogs can't go to into the library. Mom did show everyone a picture of me though and there was a picture of me and mom in the newspaper! The paper interviewed mom for the class. When mom and dad came home, they took me to the pet store. We bought food, toy mice for Charlie, a new rawhide bone and a special holiday cookie. When we went out for our evening walk it was snowing!!! It has been a long time since I saw snow. Mom and dad adopted me when there was snow on the ground. I wanted to play in it. I like snow. Mom doesn't.

Today was Sunday. Mom and dad were late taking me for my walk. I was a bit confused. Finally they put me coat on and we left the house. I was expecting to go down Winter Street but mom and dad took me in the opposite direction. Then I thought we were going to the Farmer's Market again because that was the direction we were going . There were a lot of people walking around on the street. Well, we didn't end up at the market. We walked to a large parking lot where there were even more people! Then I saw other dogs! My friend Keira was there and also another greyhound that I had met last summer- at the Farmer's Market. There were about 10 dogs in all and mom's friend, Lisa and her husband, Marc. Lisa gave me a holiday bandanna. Mom put it on me. Things started to get noisy. There was a heliocopter flying around. Santa Claus was in it!! Next thing I knew we were walking! Mom and Lisa were carrying a banner for the MayDog group. We walked downtown and there were people standing on the sidewalks cheering and clapping. Mom and Lisa were waving to everyone. The strange thing was that we were walking right in the middle of the road! Usually I am not allowed to walk there because cars go there. There were no cars today. Some people had dogs standing on the sidewalk watching the parade (That is what mom called it) There were two German Shepherds that I had met before. Keira knew them too and she didn't like them- AT ALL. Next thing I knew, Keira lunged and barked at them and they lunged and barked back! I stayed out of the way. No one got hurt and we continued on. Marc took Keira home. We walked a long way and ended back at the parking lot that we started from. We were on our way back home when we ran into the two German Shepherds. They were very nice to me. I appoligized to them for Kiera's behavior. She gets bossy sometimes. We were almost home when daddy saw the goat was near the fence. We stopped to say "Hi" to the goat. He didn't want to play today and ran away. Daddy says it was because I had "lamb on my breathe". When we got home, mom and dad put up Christmas lights outside on the trees and the front railing. I'm tired! I just want a nap!
