Thank you all again for your 'get well' wishes! They have worked enormously and I am on the road to recovery. Mom is delighted with my progress, but more of that later...
It would be remiss of me if I, as your TOUR GUIDE, didn't give you the latest news from JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA..
This was the headline on yesterday's local daily newspaper...
Yesterday morning I woke mom up with a muzzle nudge! She responded with a wide grin - probably because I haven't done this for over a week. There was also a spring in her step when I later gobbled down my food. She says that these are the signs that I am on the mend...
He didn't seem to hear me, so I went to tell mom.
She was playing with my giraffe, so I made sure that I got it back and manoeuvred
her into the house again...towards our leads...
TAMMY was with me when they finally got the message!
We were very excited about our walk...
I'm looking much better, don't you think?
TAMMY doesn't look too bad herself!...
Since we have had so much RAIN, the grass has taken off. Some folk just haven't managed to keep up with the mowing of their lawns.
(Something like me not managing to comment on all your blogs...sob!)
We don't mind the long grass at all!...
This is the part of our walk where we are allowed to go
We finally got home. I was panting a lot, but I think it was from happiness!...
So THANK YOU again to all my buddies for helping me get better. I'm still on my medication and still have a while before it is finished and I have to go back to Dr Ernie for a check, but for the moment, I am well!
Hope you are also frisky!
...and have a happy weekend!
