Today, in just a little while, I go with Mom to get my stitches out!
Those things itch! My back paw fits right where they are and it feeeeeeeeeeeeels so good. Then Mom grabs my back leg and tells me to stop, “can’t do it right now, ole boy”, she says. And pets me until I forget I had the itchys.
My tumor was right behind my shoulder blade and had grown into the shoulder blade area which is why I was having so much trouble walking.
But not anymore!
Every day we go for a walk and I made it clear around half the place yesterday. Who says old dogs need to be put out to pasture?!
Mom, Dad, Boomer and I were looking at all the really early spring work (or is it late winter work?) Dad and Mom want to get done before the farming season starts.
Boomer and I were looking for anything of interest!
We saw lots of birds. Some Mom was able to get a photo of but mostly she didn’t.
Boomer had to run off to the upper end and over to the back 40 (I sure would have liked to go) and we all heard him YELP. He hollered at me the rabbits were hopping about, but I just couldn’t do it this time. Next time I told him, not today. You give chase for both of us!
And he did.
We were up there a long, long time. When we started back home the cows were heading up to sleeping draw to spend the night. They were early because a storm was coming in and they wanted to bed down before it hit.
I was glad to get back home too…that bedding down idea sounded really good.
Boomer said he would take a nap with me; that’s what buddies are for.
Well, anyway Mom and I are off to get the stitches out! Everything is looking up.
