Poppy's Friday Quote for Today, PQT

If wrinkles must be written upon our brows, let them not be written upon the heart.
The spirit should not grow old.
(James A.Garfield)
Playing with a ball is as much fun now, as when I was a Pup,
It just seems to move faster.

Vets & Cats from Cairo

Last night I had to take another little drive to see my vet, My temperature was running high, so I'm back on the meds ( something to look forward to, Yes, really do like them).
However, when the vet told Mum my stiffness in my back hips was a sudden onset of old age, Mum seem to be wearing, her sceptical face,(hard to stare at for too long I assure you) .
So this morning, we drove out to see the Cairo cat practiser, Mums been talking about. (See Previous Posts)
When I got there though there wasn't a cat anywhere, not one to be seen. Must have been his day off, late night out on the Tiles sort of thing. So instead I saw that nice lady Vav Simon, who treated my horsey friend Woozle. Vav let me wander around while she asked Mum and Dad some questions, I soon found the treats, experienced nose. Then a spot of fuss and some gentle movements and hey presto I could waggle my bottom again and wag my tail, and better still More Treats....

Poppy's Quote for Wednesday. PQT

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
(Martin Luther King)
I agree, thats why I still bark at the postman, because I know who he is.

Ouch! I've tweeked Something Mum!

I'm afraid, I'm in the Wars lately. While trying to execute a high speed dash across the kitchen in pursuit of a fallen morsel, I slipped on the flooring, and seemed to have hurt my back or hips.
I heard Dad leaving a message on an answer phone, ( I knew it was about me, because he was looking at me, and smoothing my ears, while he was talking). He was talking to a catopractor, or someone from Cairo, either way, I'm not sure I like the sound of it. Its bad enough waiting for that visit of Marmaduke Ginger Bits, without having a Cat from Cairo practise on me, still if it fixes my back, and theres bound to be treats.....

PQT Poppys Quote for Today

"All of us need to grow continuously in our lives."
(Les Brown)
I do try and keep my weight up Les.

Feeling Better, Highs and Lows.

Well I've just finished all my antibiotics, and although I must admit to feeling a tad better, I do feel rather depressed about the whole thing. Twice a day Mum would go to extreme lengths to hide my broken up tablets in all sorts of exotic gormet dog delights, which was pretty interesting and enjoyable in every way. I really miss those tablets!

Freedom is actually a bigger game than power. Power is about what you can control. Freedom is about what you can unleash.

Poppy's Quote for Today PQT

May the wind always be at your back, and the sun upon your face, and the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.
(The movie "Blow")
I dont understand all that , but its sounds Like I might enjoy it.

Vets Inspection.

Wednesday evening we all took a trip out in the car, I was a little surprised to find myself at the Vets clinic, for the results of my blood tests. I did get a lot of attention though, and wagged tails with a rather handsome retreiver, which might have accounted for my temperature being a little high , but much better than the previous weeks readings.
My blood works were good, apart from my white cell count being slightly raised, so I was given more antibiotics to make sure the infection I picked up passes away for good.
I don't think Mum will ever let me out again, she is quite convinced its my alfresco tastes that have got me into trouble! (I think it was that Furball)
The interesting thing for me at the Vets surgury was the two containers of 'Healthy' dog treats on the counter, where Dad paid the bill, they were delicious!!
Marmaduke Ginger Bits, sent another Flying Furball to say hes been snowed in, so his trip will be delayed, and he will inform me in due course of his new arrival ETA .
