Can anyone explain to me WHY I must be tortured so?
First - Mom takes me to see the nice people at Bideawee (my vet's). They let me run around - I found my first C A T - they all want to pet my soft puppy coat - it's heaven!
Next thing I know - they knock me out - cold. I'm confused as to what really went on after that. All I know is my tummy hurts a little - I have a stitch or two - I'm been implanted with some weird sci-fi chip - and WORSE OF ALL - I have this silly thing ON MY HEAD - which means I can't scratch my itch! Oh the agony!!!!
Mom is trying to make me feel better. She gave me a "happy pill" this morning - IN PEANUT BUTTER - she's hanging out with me all day - AND she tells me that in 10 days....I get to go to a special park that is just for dogs!
So I'm starting the countdown....10 days......
From Ellie's Mom - What a drama queen! She's fine - and is recovering from her spaying procedure. The comfy cone - was Abbey's - she's getting use to it. The weird "sci-fi" chip is a micro chip. Something I always meant to do for Abbey but never got around to. We are BOTH looking forward to longer walks and lots of playtime at our neighborhood dog run - as well as CENTRAL PARK!
I wanted to explain why I have been slacking in my posting duties.
I'M UNDER HOUSE ARREST!
Apparently I need one more booster shot before I can play with other pups. That will happen on Tuesday, Jan. 25. Until then - no adventures. I'm only allowed outside to take care of business.
Thank goodness for the snow. That's right. SNOW. I think as a golden it's genetic.
Mom let me play in it at the end of our street after our morning "business walk".
I LOVE SNOW.
I love to look at it.
I love to stick my face in it.
I love to spin in it!
I LOVE SNOW!
I'm counting the days - until I get to make my neighborhood debut -
I hear there's a DOG PARK right around the corner!!!!
Note from Ellie's Mom: Elle will also have her "procedure" when we return to the vets on Tues. - so after she recovers from that - she will be able to run and play with the other dogs - something we are BOTH looking forward to!
Abbey's Life Lessons will return next Monday - and will continue to be a Monday Feature on our blog. I promised Abbs that I would always find room to love another golden girl - so in honor of her - and everything that she taught me - I'd like to introduce you to......
Eleanor Roosevelt - better known as ELLIE!
In Abbey's honor - I am turning over the reigns of this blog to our newest family member.
It's all yours Elle!
I'm a little overwhelmed here. I'm 14 weeks old - and have spent my young life on a beautiful farm in southeastern PA. My new Mom came to pick me up this morning - and 2-1/2 hrs later - I'M A NEW YORK CITY GIRL!
Mom and her friends Mr. T and Miss Liv met me in Pennsylvania for our journey to NYC.
I found the car ride very relaxing. There's was even a dog bed for me - I thought it might be even more comfortable to sleep UNDER the bed. Very cozy.
Apparently there were snacks in the back seat - but Miss Liv was in charge of keeping me in my luxurious cargo area. (I had toys - a bed - a blanket - but those snacks looked tempting)
When we got home - I discovered just how lucky I am...
There's Mom's chair. OK - so I'm not really suppose to be in it . I'm learning.
My big sis Abbey, left me her dog bed. I promise to take good care of it!
There's my new crate - with it's own custom slipcover.
I even have my own little pop-up "Pup Tent". Mom thought this would be great for weekend trips outside the city. I think it's pretty cozy!
So there you have it. I'm going to do my best to fill some pretty big paws. I look forward to sharing my stories and adventures with you. Right now - I think it's time to nap!
(so far I have been called Ellie, Elle, Eleanor, Mrs. Roosevelt, Elmo, El-ster - apparently I have many personalities!)
