OK, you all know I haven't been able to get muzzer to help on the blog. She is a real mess with this move. She promised yesterday that she would help me tonight. So, I had this list of questions my friends have been asking to answer, and I thought that would make an interesting blog.
What does she do this morning? She gets me all excited and we go to the car and I get in the back seat like a good doggie. And I figure, I have a command performance at the store, because it is Tuesday, and I work M-W-F!
Nope. You know where we went, right? We went to see my arch-enemy...THE VET!
Now..I just went to the vet before my adventure at the PetHotel. So I figured I was good for a year, and maybe by the time I was due, she would have forgotten about it. Nope.
FIRST they took my temperature. And after that humiliating experience, they checked my heart and took me off to get weighed.
The good news is that I have lost a whole two pounds since last year! Wowsers. All that deprivation. All that hunger. All those treats I missed. All those green beans I ate. TWO POUNDS! Yippee
The bad news, I am still "substantial" In fact. I am more substantial than Jackson. I weigh a wopping 14.5 kg. (see his note on my last blog for a comparison.) Now, I told muzzer that I am sure I am much taller than Jackson. But the Doc still says I need to lose some more.
I reminded muzzer that Miss Snickers has a Thyroid problem, and we are checking for that, again. Which meant the blood suckers got me at the vet office too. We are also getting me one additional walkie, all by myself, every day. This might not be so bad after all. But I am still angry at her, and I am plotting revenge on several levels
Well on to my list of questions.
The Pet Hotel was OK. The food was good, they make a mighty fine Kong, and I had a great time in the playroom. BUT. They keep the TV tuned to the Animal Planet all the time !!! No Travel Channel, no Discovery, no SciFi, and worst of all, no FOOD Channel! That is my most critical complaint.
For those who asked, the house thing is moving much more rapidly than muzzer expected.
Our house here sold in three days! We have had the inspection, the buyers have their loan approved, the bank said there is no need to appraise our house because we are not in a "declining market" and we have very minor repairs to make. One of those comes out of Teka's allowance. We close here on June 19th and the new folks will move in that day.
The house in Mayemphissss has accepted our bid, we have gotten our loan approval, and we are waiting to hear if the bank will want to appraise that house. We still need to get it inspected and see if there are any repairs. If all goes well we will be closing there on June 26th, and taking possession on the 27th.
So, that means that we will be trekking cross country during the week between the 19th and the 26th. So all of you doggies on our route had better watch out! I am lookin for a place to "lose" teka!
