Merry Christmas Eve

I am trying to help Mommy get into the Christmas spirit. I am feeling a little bit better because I am not in so much pain right now. Although last night was pretty restless.

We went to the vet this morning to have my fentanyl patch removed. It was very sticky and I was too upset to let Mommy and Daddy take it off themselves. You all know how I feel about sticky-ness on my furs. I guess it's good news that I could sort of feel it. I sometimes twitch my legs around a little bit, but I'm not anywhere near standing up yet.

Remember that swollen pad on my foot? Well, it's not any smaller and now it's oozing blood. Great. Mommy put some ointment on it, so I hope it will feel better soon.

Pee Ess: There is a show called "Dog Genius" on the Nat. Geo. channel next Sunday. I'm pretty sure this show is about me, so I told Mommy to Tivo it.

It is so good to hear you aren't crying as much. I am sure it will take some time to feel all better. That is good news that you could feel the sticky patch and that you are twitching your feet. Big Chihuahua kisses and good puppy thoughts to you and your family!

I saw Dog Genius, it was a great show!

Poppy, it sounds like a good sign that your legs are twitching around a little bit. You are so brave! I hope you keep getting better and better.
