Confessions of a Barkaholic

Just Call Me Ruffles

So today I went to go see da vet man. I has been getting real stiff lately and limping some. And not really walking da way I used to. I still like going on my walks and all, but I just wanna spend some time sitting in da field too. I don't know why da lazy momma can't fence the field for me and have dat be my backyard - it's about da right size! BOL! But I can still get real energetic and crazy if I's has da proper inspiration - like a squirrel or a bunny or a bird or another dog.

Anyways, I went to da vet man and he says I got someone named Arthur Eyetis living in my hip. Well, I don't know dis Arthur dude and I didn't invite him to take up residence in my hip. Anyways, I got a pill to take and a treat to take too. I'm happy bout da pill, I's been jealous of Finley getting pills for itchies, so it are about time I got one too. Da vet says if dat Arthur dude starts acting worse dat dere are all kindsa other stuffs to try including da acupunctures.

Momma asked da vet about da wrinkles on my back. See, I's gotted all dese back wrinkles all of a sudden. Momma has only had bassets before and dey got wrinklier as dey got older, but dey started out wrinkly to begin with. Da vet said it were not normal but dat he has seen other dogs have dem and dey don't mean something bad. Da vet also stole some of my bloods for tests, so we'll know all about dat soon.

Do any of y'all have wrinkles on your back from being old? Or is I really unique? Momma says my new nickname are gonna be Ruffles, cause Ruffles got ridges. Yeah, my momma are a real comedian, ain't she?

Mom knows all about Arthur as he is living in her hip. Maybe she should go to a vet for some meds!

I can sympathize with you Whitley. I have arthritus issues also and once my hips are x rayed in a week(when I have surgery to remove my small tumor)my vet will decide what to do. I may have to start taking Rimadyl. Is that the pill that you are on? Hope it helps both of us!

I got to say I think wrinkles are an attractive feature...just saying.

Nope Wesley, I's on a glucosamine and chondroitin treat and da other pill are a herbal supplement - he's a holyisitic vet and I don't need da other stuffs yet.

Botox Zoe?? BOL BOL! I don't mind my wrinkles, but I gots my flowing long hair covering dem up pretty good anyways. Maybe more of the humans should try growing dere hair long to cover dere sags and bags, dey'd save money!

Wrinkles and Monty, I think my wrinkles are wonderful too! My momma had basset pups before me and dey was wrinkly. So maybe I is just trying to be a little basset-like for my momma, I know she misses dem. I been working on my howl too, but it are not up to snuff yet. My barking are top-notch though, I practice non-stop.

And Finn, you know I ain't gonna let you hit da ball. BOL!

And Freckles, I'd try biting Arthur, but since he are living in my hip, I might bite myself and I don't wanna do that. Finley might volunteer to bite me, errr, him, but I ain't letting her.
