Tom: Sorry we're late posting again. We had an unexpected trip to see Dr. C, our vet, today. #1 noticed last night that I had a bit of a bump under the skin on my chest and wanted to get it checked out. It turns out it is from a black thorn prick, and it should go away all by itself, so nothing to worry about. Phew!
We have some photos to share with you, of course. It is very manly for a dog to go to work with his mistress, and I was very proud to accompany#1 to the Percheron Horse Society one morning last week.
My pal Eve was at the neighbours' until Thursday, se we got in lots of playtime:
But of course, the most fun was having #1 try out her new camera on all of us. Here is a photo she took of me the first day!
BUILT FOR SPEED!
And don't I look debonnair in this one?
Yuu-Chan: Would you believe it, she took me to the vet too! All bcause I had two strange-looking bald patches on my inner left thigh. Needless to say, I sang (actually "screamed at the top of my lungs") all the way there and back. Dr. C said it was nothing bacterial or hormonal or stress-related, but it looked as though I had been rubbing against something, probably in the run. I am in fabulous shape otherwise, so no meds at all. It's shedding time and should grow back with all the new fur.
Here I am, engaging in the very manly activity of watching over my big sister, Tama-Chan, as she naps:
Playing manly games with my (almost invisible) little brother:
and resting after so much hard work...
Bibi-Chan: I went to see Dr. C last week so I didn't need to go again, and it befell to me to protect my two older sisters from any possible intruders whilst #1, Tommy and Yuu-Chan were gone. I am supposed to be only a Mancat-in-Training as I am not yet 4 months old, but I thought I did a grand job!
And on the subject of mancatlines, how many even fully grown mancats do you know who love to play bitey-face with their woofie friends?
I was also fearless in facing the Trial by Fire, or if you prefer, sitting by the fireplace...
And, with a little bit of help from my friends, I can do extraordinary feats!!!
Hoping your week has gotten off to a great start!
