... but the good news is that it gets taken off when I have my meals and for a while after that. One thing that has not changed is Sen-Chan trying to help me eat my meals:
I had a good time early afternoon today as #1 decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather to wash her car, aided by Ms. L who is staying with us. In order to keep me occupied when we were outside, she gave me one of my birthday presents which turned out to be the biggest bone I had EVER seen:
This is a lot of hard work!
Anyway, I am really hoping that when we go back to the vet's for a check-up on Monday, she will be pleased with my progress. I am really keen to get back to my long runs!
Before closing, I wanted to pay tribute to a lovely lady doggie who went to the Bridge yesterday. Her name was LISA and she was a mixed breed with a lot of shepherd/collie in her. She was 14 years old and was rescued three and a half years ago by Ms. A and Ms. H, friends of #1, after spending 6 years (!) at the shelter. She was much loved and indulged following this but sadly developed one of those nasty "C" illnesses and could not make it. #1 went out and helped her mom take her back home from the vet's and to lay her out so that the two other dogs could pay their last respects before she was cremated. It was very touching to see, according to #1. Last night, all the people shared a bottle of Champagne in memory of Lisa and also of IKKYU. It's good to remember our friends and raise a glass to them!
