So the house is pretty busy this week. Mom and the boys have been doing a lot of reorganizing and cleaning. They keep telling me it's for me... but...I really don't need all this stuff. Things are pretty kosher with me, all things considered. I get to sleep all day, nobody bugs me. Though if … Continue reading One Day Left!
Warning... this is ugly. So for anybody who wanted a closer look, this is what I'm dealing with. And this picture doesn't show the worst of it. Mom tries to keep it covered, and a diaper used to work quite well. But I now have some swelling (from the drainage) above my "elbow", which makes … Continue reading Just Gross

I'm still wearing the cone... my Mom won. Or maybe my belly did. Dinner convinced me off the couch today, and I ran into every piece of furniture with this stupid thing to get to it. I went outside, and my brothers and sisters all smelled the thing on my head. We all came back … Continue reading Ouch!
I stayed on my diet and Mom did all she could to keep my stress levels down. We were in the hot part of summer now, and I didn't get to go in the truck as often because the air-conditioning went out. So I stayed in the house a lot and slept on my couch, … Continue reading Worries
We'll start here, because it's really where everything I want to share with you begins.
