Hey!! I am 13 years old today
I'm pretty blind & mostly deaf... so I always feel like the people are sneaking up on me, but other than that, life is GREAT! Mom finished Nursing School, so now she is home more and only works three 12 hour shifts a week. We love that!

For my birthday, I got to lay in one place almost all day - mom didn't make me move like she usually does. And I get to have a rootbeer float after dinner... and we get to watch The Wizard of Oz on TNT

I am happy to be 13 years old today - everyone is invited to celebrate with us :)


I had some surgery

I'm a pretty lumpy old Golden, and mom says that's to be expected... but I started growing some hard lumps on my forehead. Mom didn't like them, so she took me to the Vet. He decided they were suspicious (with my history of cancer and all) so he took 'em off and sent them away to a lab to see if they were anything to worry about. while I was anaesthetized, he cleaned my teeth - and found a broken one, as well as two other bad ones - so I ended up getting THREE teeth pulled.

It was a pretty rough first few days, but I feel soooooo much better now. And mom feels better too, because the biopsy came back "benign" - the lumps were "sebaceous gland cysts". It's good to get them out, but they weren't dangerous. My mouth feels alot better too. I even chewed a Greenie today. Yummy!!

I had to wear a cone for two weeks, until my stitches came out. The floppy blue cone is a vast improvement over the old hard plastic cones I used to have to wear after other surgeries. I can even go through the dog door wearing the blue one. Nice!

I hope that's all the surgery I ever have to go through. Mom does too.


Happy Birthday to me!!

It's my birthday :) I am 10 people years old today.
Mom let me get up on the bed with her this morning... right up on the pillow :)

Bandit & I get to go swimming in the lake this morning, and then we are having a birthday party (for ME!). Belle and Friday and Bailey and Broadie and Carly are going to come over. That's 7 dogs... I hope mom bought enough root beer float fixin's.

Mom says I look great for my age. I think so too.
Now where are all my presents..............................?
