Grr, Gruff, Bark!!!

At the park the other day there was this thing--this big WEIRD THING. But I showed it who was boss by barking and barking until I was sure it wasn't dangerous. I helped make sure the world is safe for all dogs.

After my stunning display of braveness, I had my picture taken in front of this nice purple stuff. I am enjoying my trips to the park a lot. I get carried to and from the park, but I get to walk around the whole park on the grass all by myself. I don't even use my sling anymore! But I'm still not allowed to run yet.

When I had my surgery Mommy and Daddy put most of my toys away so that I wouldn't be tempted to play rough with them. They left my favorite ones out, but it's not much of a selection. So the other day I was in the office and guess what I found! All my toys! They were all packed into my old puppy bed. I took the opportunity to pull them all out right away. It was so good to see my old friends: intella-bone, squeaky duck, mousy, hedgehog, and all my various sizes of tennis balls! I played and played--but not too hard.

We are going to Lake Tahoe this weekend and I might get to go snowshoeing. I'll post pictures when we get back. By the way, my new sweater still has not arrived! Something about being backordered. Grruff, I say. I was hoping it would be here in time for my vacation.

Bye for now!

You are so very brave Poppy! I bet you scared that strange thing away!

It is good to see you without your sling. Meowm and I noticed you are a little wobbly still, but we are certain that will pass with a little more time!

No more sling! That is the best part of your post! What was that strange thing??
I don't know if its me but I can't see the pictures!
I hope you will have a great "no new sweater" weekend!
Kisses and hugs

Poppy, you are very brave to protect your family like that. Because that big thing could have been dangerous! It makes me happy to see you walking without any help. I knew you could do it!

No sling? HOORAY! And what a treat for you to get your toys back! Things just keep getting better and better, and that makes me very happy!

Sooo glad you are getting around better. I know what you mean about barking. Thanks for the making the world safer. I'd bark for you for president.
