Oh Dear, I wasn't feeling too special Yesterday. I was Shivering and Shaking.,so I was Whisked promptly off to see my Vet. I was soon seen, and seemed to cause some amusement when after appearing to be fading fast, I made a miraculous recovery when the Vet started making russeling noises while opening a syringe packet. Its amazing what power the crackle of a presumed treat wrapper can inspire, so when I popped my paws and head up on the counter to check, they knew I was already starting to feel better. I was given an antibiotic injection and a course of tablets to take, as I was running a high temperature. Now I'm thinking, can a Dog catch Cat flu from a Furball? If so Mr.M.GingerBits is in for a piece of my mind when he arrives.
Re previous post; That's a Furball that comes by airmail if you were wondering, It was from The famous Cat, and feared Art Critic ‘Marmaduke Ginger Bits’. He would like an interview with me to discuss my art, for his new urban magazine, Cats in The City.
I was blissfully stretched out asleep, and unfortunately as well as the shock, it landed right in one of my ears and took a lot of shaking to get out. Sadly for me this was witnessed by Mum who promptly went into the ear cleaning routine, which despite my best protestations was duly carried out. Thanks to 'that Cat', I now have the cleanest ears of any Labrador.
When I finally retrieved the furball from under the sofa, and unpicked it;
The message read ; Flying overnight on the Catseye. Two weeks next Thursday. Remember to have a suitable litter tray available, for my forthcoming visit, as I Do Not venture Outdoors in the Country Ever. Expect to see some new works to View. MGB
Well I never!, they are pretty snooty these city cats aren't they! above is a pawtrait, I found of him in a book in the library, 'Famous Cats of Our Era'.
Well, I've been keeping my New Years resolutions... pretty much. I've been taking Mum out for brisk walks at least twice a day, every Day, ( shes not puffing quite so much up the hill climbs), What me, Oh no, I don't Puff, I just hang my tongue out,occassionly. I'm still dribbling, I know!, but I cant seem to help it, all those Gormet food smells.... I still bark at the Postie, But I am refraining from grabbing the letters, I just pick them up from the carpet, and bring them in to Mum. ( I've always done that little Job).
I don't usually make these, but its a good time to paw start a new regime... soo.. I will nag my Mum to take me out for more walks, (I do need the exercise, then I can eat more) I will try not to dribble on humans feet, when they are eating, I will endeavour not to Bark at the Postman, I will not grab the letters through the letterbox, (that will be hard one, as I so enjoy making the Postie Jump!) I will overcome my Skateboard Phobia. There you go, I think thats enough for a Pup to remember. Did you make any?What are yours?
Thank you for dropping by.
I live with Mark and enjoy painting horses, dogs,cats,pets,wildlife and fantasy subjects, quite an eclectic mixture, but lots of fun.
