Hiya it is I the blogging Border Collie! I went to the Vet and had my yearly checkup! Far Guy was feeling good enough to come along…we think he has turned the corner now thanks to excellent nursing care by you know who and ME!
I am doing just fine, I have a little arthritis in my left front leg…but my other legs are perfect! I still have the Stye in my right eye, as long as it doesn’t bother me all the time they are just going to let it be…if it starts bothering me and doesn’t respond to the eye ointment I will have to have surgery…eww.
Far Side said I needed that expensive 65 smackeroos blood test to make sure I didn’t have Lymes or any of the other tick diseases…or Heartworm. All my tests were negative. It hurt a little when they took the blood out of my leg, and my eyes got big and pleading looking. Far Side wanted to know without a doubt that it really is arthritis in my front leg and not Lymes…so she is happy now. Well not happy that I have arthritis..just happy I don’t have tick diseases.
I am already taking a bone shaped pill once a day called Cosequin to help old joints. Barney in Iowa takes the same pill..he is an older Border Collie too.
My teeth look pretty good for an old guy. They can tell I sometimes play with tennis balls…I have an assortment of soft rubber balls but I do like me a tennis ball!
I am looking good for being almost ten years old. I am nine years and seven months old. That means I have caught up with my owners ages…no wonder we all enjoy a nap in the afternoon.
Far Side brushed me real good. I hope she is happy now. She said “Cross Chance off the list.”
I am doing my part to help out the birds.
