It has been a busy three months. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being busy most of the time. But it is important that my five daily naps are completed in a timely manner. We have been visiting our friends in the two nursing homes that we visit every Tuesday. Sometimes I wish Tuesday came more often than once every seven days.
We also visit Beech Grove Schools, where some really cool students read me some good stories. My canine friend Allen is also a therapy dog, and he worked at Central Elementary. Allen and his human partner are working at a different school this year. I enjoy visiting Central Elementary.
About a month ago I hurt my foot and was limping and licking the sore area. My human dad and mom asked me how I hurt my thumb. After a couple of days I knew what was going to happen. Dad and I went to the doctor’s office.
I had a feeling that the visit wasn’t for my annual physical. Soon we were shown into one of those little rooms. Dr. Darcie Evans came in to look at my sore foot. She was messing with my thumb, which she called a dewclaw. She asked me why I wasn’t looking at her. I didn’t have time to look at her because I was staring at the door and wanted to leave.
They put something around my neck. It looked to me like I was in a large bowl. I had to mess with that for a while and take some medications for a couple of weeks. I’m doing much better now.
On Saturday Dad and I are going to ring the bell for the The Salvation Army at the Kroger at Madison and Edgewood avenues, and Charlie the Donkey, who’s one of my friends, is going to help. Charlie has done this before and raised a lot of money. He is my neighbor and one cool donkey. He lives at the Southport Equestrian Center.
I will be at Kroger from 10-11 a.m. and from 1-3 p.m. Charlie will be there from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. We are looking forward to seeing lots of our friends while meeting many new ones.
You can stop by twice ... once to see me and once to see Charlie.
