No more Kia

I'm kinda sad about there not being a dog smaller than me anymore in this house, but my momma got bit too many times and said it just wouldn't work out. Kia was VERY happy when her other momma came back to get her, but my humans were sad and felt bad about not being able to keep her. They sent all kinds of blankets and newspapers away with Kia, but she's way too small to need all those. I think maybe they are for the many other dogs being cared for by this nice lady. I'm trying to be extra nice to my humans, but have been a little sick lately. Daddy thinks maybe the cancer is upsetting my tummy and he's giving me extra food to eat with my Tumor Time. The tumor has grown a little and has red spots on it now, but it's not too bad. I'm happy to have a nice warm bed to sleep on, something I do most of the time. Hope everyone else is staying warm and enjoying any snow they have. I get lost in mine, especially when it was taller than me and all white. I couldn't find my way back from doing my daily duty outside and daddy had to come rescue me. Now it's melting enough I can see the ground, but I still bump in to things like the bird bath and the tree. Momma keeps trying to teach Katie how to guide me around, but she just wants to chase squirrels and fetch the tennis ball. Maybe Charlie could be my seeing eye dog? I'll have to work on that one...

Licks and wags...

  2. Tucker,
    Tell your Mommy to look up something called "Essiac." It is a herb of some sort, I've heard it helps. I'm taking it, as I am getting better. I don't know if it is helping, but I feel better;and, I thought you might like to know about it.

  3. Sweet nose dabs to you.

  4. That is too bad about Kia, but sometimes things just don't work out and it is best to make the decision that makes the most sense. At least Kia has a home to go to, she wasn't just abandoned. We hope you are feeling better very soon, Tucker. Be careful out there, Tucker. We are thinking of you.

    We still have tons of snow too. I can't even walk around my land yet, we just walk up & down our long driveway. We're ready for Spring!
