I just wanted to post a short greeting to wish all my furry friends, and their moms and dads a Happy National Dog day! I hope all my friends get some extra recognition today. Like chicken nuggets. Or like I did, some healthy exotic fruits. Mom knows I love mango and papaya, and that’s what I got for my midday snack.
Life’s been treating me okay lately. Not great. Just okay. And I tell you why. You know, I have this Addison’s disease. And it requires a medicine that – while keeping me up and running for over three years now – gives me these small skin masses. They are not sticking out of my curly coat or anything like that, but they need to be removed every year when I go under to get my teeth cleaned. I had fifteen of them of them this year. Fifteen! Not too much fun.
And you should’ve seen how I looked. Fifteen shaved patches of skin with black stitches. Luckily I only met my guy friends in the first weeks after the surgery at the end of June. They thought I looked cool. I was the tough guy. Then my groomer cut my hair so short I was almost freezing in the Florida summer. And I looked more pinkish than brownish. He said it’d grow back evenly. And I’m happy to say he was right. I’m almost there now. Starting to feel myself again 🙂
I have to run soon. It’s dinner time. I smell chicken! But I want to remind everyone that my book “Confessions of a Rescue Dog” makes a great gift and is available on Amazon everywhere. I’m happy to say it’s found its way to some school libraries this fall. And even happier to tell you that Mom has given every cent Amazon sends her to my homeless friends at the Humane Society shelter. And she will continue to do so every six months. I trust her.
I hope life’s treating you well. I wish you a great fall season without stitches. Remember to celebrate today! Love ❤ Bumble
