Sorry I didn't tell more of my story yesterday. You see I can't type and the lady was busy with other things, including me.
The good thing about not telling my story for a day is that there are more pictures then usual to share. I've calmed down (just a little) and I stand still more so the lady can take pictures of me. Here is one I like. This one was taken when I got to explore more of the yard.
That thing behind me is called a toy. I've never had one before and I'm not sure what to do with it. The lady tries to get me to bite it and she throws it to try to make me chase it but I don't want to bite and I'd rather climb in her lap.
I'm not usually allowed in the yard because the lady says I probably have worms and she doesn't want my other dogs to get infected. Instead I have a smaller, fenced in space of my very own. It makes me feel safe being in that smaller space but there isn't much room to run.
While I explored the yard I found this! What ARE those things in there? They sure move around a lot and are pretty but I couldn't get a very good sniff of them.
Here is a picture of me modelling that pretty new collar the lady got me. Do you like the color? The lady said that the nice man that lives with her picked it out because the color suited me. I think I'm very pretty in it. The man is very nice. I can't believe I was afraid of him at first.
The lady gave me that "wok" thing she told me about. You know what? A "wok" isn't something good to eat, it's when the human puts a rope on you and takes you out to see the rest of the world. You sure do walk a lot on a "wok".
I liked it a lot, maybe more then I like the food. I sniffed and sniffed and sniffed some more. I got all the news in the neighborhood. I found out that there are a lot of happy dogs around here that eat good food like I get now. I hope I get to stay as happy as they smell and I feel right now. I also found out there are a lot of cats around here. They stink up all the soft dirt areas real bad. I'm not sure what to make of the cats. I don't know if I like them or not. It's hard to make up my mind because every time I try to sniff one and introduce myself it hisses and runs away.
The lady took me back to house after the "wok" (I have to admit I was afraid we weren't going back). After I rested and had a little more food the lady took me and put me in a big bowl. She got me all wet (at least the water was warm) and put stuff on me and made me foam up all over like I was the worlds worst rabid dog. I didn't like it one bit and wanted to get away. The lady talked to me in gentle tones again and I tried to trust her. I couldn't help but stay stiff as a board though and try to wait my chance to jump out of the big bowl. The lady didn't give me that chance to do that though.
I have to admit I did enjoy getting scritched all over.
After the lady got me soaking wet again and washed away all of that foam she wrapped me in a big towel and rubbed me all over. I got very wiggly and managed to run away. I ran into the next room and rolled and rolled on the carpet to get myself dry. I could hear the lady running after me and calling "Not on the bed! Please, not on the bed!".
What's a bed?
I did see this big thing in the room I was in that was covered with fluffy blankets and pillows. It looked so fun and comfy that I wanted to jump on it to see what it was and have a good roll there to dry myself off but the lady caught me and took me out of there before I could.
She seemed relieved but I still want to check that big thing out.
Later on the lady took me for another walk. She introduced me to some nice neighbors and told them my story. They all pet me and fussed over me. I feel like a celebrity.
After they finished fussing the lady continued to talk to them while I wandered to the end of my rope to do more sniffing. As I sniffed I felt a great pain inside me. I stiffened up and arched my back and circled a bit to try to make the pain stop. he lady noticed and sat down on the sidewalk with me and comforted me. She said she was sorry I was starting to feel pain but It would all be fixed tomorrow (today actually). After a little while the pain stopped and I was back to feeling normal. We walked back home and I took a nap.
The lady Stayed nearby watching me for a long time and even after she left she checked on me often. She said to me, "good, I don't think you're in labor. I guess a puppy must have moved and caused you pain because they are getting too big".
Later on when the lady was checking on me I felt something move inside me again and it hurt. The lady saw it too and took a picture. You can see I'm in pain in this picture but it was only for a second before it passed.
I didn't have any more pain since then.
I'm a little confused though. The lady took away my food and even my water last night. I know that I don't always get food because the lady says I eat too much and will get sick but she always makes sure I have water.
The lady says I'm having that operation tomorrow (today). What does that have to do with my water bowl?
I woke up this morning and the lady put me out in my little yard. I ran to my food bowl to wait for her to give me food but she didn't. She says that in a few hours we will be going to visit that doctor so I can't eat or drink. I'm in my yard right now scooting my bowl with my nose hoping that someone will notice it's empty and come fill it. The lady comes to check on me so I know she didn't forget I'm here so I just don't understand.
I hope this doctor thing happens soon. Maybe after that I can have more food.
