Hiya It is me Chance one of the oldest most handsome Border Collies in Minnesota.
I am getting along okay…I sleep alot and I don’t like to be by myself without my people. I have made a few attempts to play ball…but my heart just isn’t in it anymore.
I am still eating rice with boiled hamburger and a little bit of my normal food. Far Side says I have soft poops…almost formed most days. I cannot eat one of my normal foods yet…salmon and peas…uffda…nearly chased everyone out of the house and in the car they had to roll down the window. No more of that food for me. Who knew salmon and peas made obnoxious gas…Far Guy tried to blame it on Far Side one day…us guys got to stick together.
Far Side took me to the groomer. I got my
butt shaved panty hair trimmed and my nails cut…I was only there for 15 minutes and then I got to come back home again. She was afraid that my nails were getting dangerously long since I don't run around in the gravel anymore and my nails were going click click on the floor and we have a grate right outside the door that a long nail could have gotten ripped out…or so she says… Yada yada…nail ripped out, blood all over, and a hurt dog, accident waiting to happen…blah blah…so my nails were clipped. What ever keeps her happy…just for the record the panty trim was her idea too…
They trap me downstairs when they leave the house…they don’t want me falling up or down the stairs when I am by myself. Part of the Dog Eldercare/ Nursing Home Program. They don’t leave me all alone very often.
