I am home in my own house now. I went home an hour or so ago. Mom is here with me for a few hours. She’s doing a few things for me around my house.
The taxi driver we got wasnt a bit impressed with Nitro. Well, thats his problem, not mine. By law he has to take a guide dog. Nitro is shedding, and when he got out of the taxi he left tons of hairs on the mat. What can I do? There really is nothing I can do about it.
Now that I am home, mom is putting away my groceries for me, and then she has to take apart my old TV equipment, while she’s doing that I have to arrange for a delivery crowd to pick up the equipment on tuesday.
I put my heat on right away when I got in. The house is freezing, since there was no heat on all weekend.
Feels so good to be home! Me and Nitro are going to just relax this evening. I may face time with my friend Sarah in colorado if she’s up for that.
Well, Nitro is being a bit of a rebel tonight!
He’s refusing to go out to do his business!
I’ve tried coaxing him, but no! He’s not budging!
He is just too comfortable it seems! He’s totally ignoring me!
I opened the back door, called to him, but nope! He’s like, you think I’m going out in the rain? Not a chance!
Ha! Well if he wont go out in an hour or so, I’ll probably end up getting up during the night to let him out!
The things I do because I love that dog!
Lol. He’s just too cute!
Today, my baby turns 9! Nitro is 9 wow!
I cannot believe he’s 9!
I feel so bad because I forgot his treats when I went to the store yesterday!
But I love him, and thats the most important thing!
7 years ago, this bundle of joy bounced into my life, he has made life so so much better for me!
He’s such a joy and a treasure!
I think he still thinks he’s a puppy! He loves to play, run and jump around!
Happy birthday sweet nitro!
You’ve been an incredible friend, guide dog, and emotional support dog even though officially your not that at all!
I hope we have many many more years of fun, laughter and companionship together!
Love you to the moon and back!
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!
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!
dear sweet nitro
stubborn you are
sitting on the rug
refusing to go out for me
what will I do with you
But I do have to say
You are soo cute
The way you refuse to come when I call you
The way you plant your bum on that rug
And sit there steadfast
Looking at me
with those big puppy dog eyes
As if to say
Dont put me out in the rain
I love my nice warm house to much to go out there in that cold!
Please, I just want to go to bed!
In your bed, mommy!
Oh how I love that dog!
