Yesterday, as a pre-birthday treat, Mama and Papa took me to Ben and Jerry's and I had a quarter bowl of vanilla ice cream!!!
Like everywhere else, it was bazillions of degrees outside, so the three of us sat in the air conditioned truck and slurped our ice cream together rather than sitting at a café table. It was very nice and relaxing ....a happy, cozy moment.
I have five birthday Yays:
Today Mama is going to play ball with me in the backyard just as soon as she's finished cleaning the house ....YAY.
She had some old trees pulled up so I'll have more running room ...YAY.
Now I won't get my tie-out tangled up around my legs ....YAY.
And I won't fall on my face anymore whenever I run for the ball ....YAY.
And tonight I just know I'm going to get the marrow bone that I saw Daniel sneak into the fridge .....YAY !!!

Papa update: Papa is in his third week of Interferon injections and he's feeling really icky. He's a lot better than he was on the infusions but this Interferon stuff is pretty unforgiving, no matter how you take it. Poor Papa. He can't work but he goes into the office now and then to say hi to his staff. And sometimes he walks me and goes out to buy groceries which he loves to do. He's lost a lot of weight because food tastes terrible. Mama is always trying to make him eat fruits and vegetables and grains, but he doesn't enjoy eating at all.
I do my best to make Papa happy because I sense there's something wrong with him. Mama sees it in my face. My life has changed a lot too. I used to go to Papa's office all the time and play with the secretaries and run around the dock chasing brooms and shovels. And we did lots of road trips and shows. Well, I just know that the three of us will be doing all that again one day soon, but until then, I will snuggle close to Papa and give him lots of lovies and healing slobberoos. I know paw-power works and there isn't a minute that I'm not giving him all the power my paws have.
Well, I'm going to wait by the back door until it's time to go outside and play ball.
Bye for now. xo
