I wake from slumber
Lie there wide awake
for a little while
Should I get up now?
Eventually nitro makes the decision for me
Coming in and licking me
Come on mommy, its time to move!
Quietly I get up
Go to the kitchen
Make a coffee
And sipping on it
I open my laptop
Let today begin!
Nitro comes for a cuddle
Then I decide
To let him out
Walk to the back door
Breathe in the fresh air
Not a sound
Not even a bird
Good morning world!
Happy and content
Laying at my feet
Sleeping so peacefully
Dreaming of chasing cats
Or maybe dreaming
Of eating bones
As your paws twitch
And the sound of your sweet whimpers
Always makes me smile
Oh how I love
My sweet boy
My plan for the day today is to stay home and take it easy, relax, I dont have to go anywhere, be anywhere, do anything, I can just have time to myself, mom is going to come over for a while, she will spend a few hours here.
I am wide awake, there’s no sign of sleep coming tonight, I did get about 2 hours in the afternoon today. I have the radio on, I am listening to a talk show. It feels very peaceful in my house tonight, nitro is going between my bedroom and his bed in the living room, he’s sleeping and then getting up and coming in to check on me, its so cute!
Overall I’d say my tuesdays been great! I am feeling good and my mood is good too. So happy about that!
We’re just home from the vets appointment, nitro was a really good boy. He hated it there though and couldnt wait to get out the door! As I brought him in when the vet called us he ran towards the front entrance, it was very funny, also, before we went in when we were sitting in the waiting area he got all panicky and started pawing at me and then trying to jump up on my PA’s shoulders, well he was trying to put his two paws up on her shoulders.
The vet did give me a lecture about his weight. She said he needs to lose some. He hadnt lost anything since he’s been there 3 weeks ago. He’s still 40 KG which is about 84 pounds, which is waaaay too much as he should be only weighing about 72 pounds.
She gave me more eardrops for him, she said his ears do look cleaner but they are still a little mucky especially the left ear, so she told me to use them for another two weeks, and she also told me to also clean his ears twice a week. She also gave me flea and worming treatment for him.
Overall it was a good visit, minus that lecture I got. I had to come home and phone my dad, and explain to him that he needs to just cut out giving Nitro treats completely, as the vet said if Nitro doesnt lose some weight he’ll get slower faster, and his legs will stiffen up and he’ll go lame, and be unable to move around. I dont want that for him so I need to get the weight under control.
We have to go back in a month to check his ears again and also to check to see if he’s losing any weight. I hope by then he will have lost something.
Hiya guys! Woof, woof!
Its me Nitro, how are you all doing!
You will never believe this, my mommys ignoring me!
I’ve been sitting here trying to get her attention for the last 10 minutes. She’s busy watching tv and ignoring me and I am not impressed! She’s watching the rose of tralee, which is a kinda beauty contest. I dont know what to do! I’ve started panting in hopes she’ll finally hear me. I also started nudging her!
She patted me and said hey buddy, but then went right back to her coffee and the tv!
This is no good! I want to go out!
I need to pee! If she doesnt let me outside soon I might have an accident on her rug and then I’d be in sooo much trouble! But how can I be in trouble? It wouldnt be my fault if I had an accident! I did try to get her to let me out!
Guess what else? I have to go to that nasty vets tomorrow. I dont want to go! I should stomp my paws and say nooo! Not going!
See how mom likes that!
I will protest! No treats, no vets!
Oh yaaaaay! She’s finally getting up. I am hoping she’s going to take me out now! So I’d better sign off. Good night, woofs and tail waggles!
