Hey! Bear here!
This morning, while we were on the beach, mom told me some of my fans were getting restless since I hadn’t put paw to keyboard in a while. Now, I just have to tell you that it makes this pooch feel mighty, mighty good to know I’ve been missed. I know mom told you, but right in the middle of all the moving around we Hortons did – I had to have knee surgery. And even though I type with my two FRONT paws, having a bum BACK leg makes it a little uncomfortable to sit in that chair in front of the laptop. But – the leg’s all healed up now, and except for a little touch of arthritis, I’m as good as new.
With mom getting so old and all (dad too, but mom talks about it more), I’ve started thinking about MY age and health. It’s really hard to believe I turned nine last year (right at Christmas time), and my little sister Maddie is 11 1/2 now. I tease her all the time about how cranky she’s gotten in her “later years”, and she gets me back by proving she can still steal all my toys in three seconds flat. When Maddie and I hear mom talking about one of her aches or pains, we just look at each other and roll our eyes. I know Maddie’s thinking the same thing I am – when humans have an ache somewhere, they just get up and take some medicine. But Maddie and I can lie around and feel bad for hours without anyone figuring out we’re sick. Yep, the only way Maddie and I can tell mom and dad we don’t feel good is to go throw up on something valuable. That ALWAYS gets their attention! And off we go to the vet to get OUR medicine! Humans have it so much easier!
Ok – enough about our aches and pains. I’m beginning to sound just like mom!
With such short notice, I don’t really have a story to tell today, but since Mom said you wanted to hear from me, I think I’ll introduce you to all the new friends Maddie and I have made here in Sunset Inlet!
And here they are!
Hope you enjoyed hearing from me and meeting all our friends! I promise I’ll be back soon with doggie updates from Florida. And yes, Maddie and I are already dreaming about Mackinac. In fact, Mom is going to show you some really neat photos from there right now!
Our weekend company sadly had to cancel, but we’ve had a great time here, with perfect weather for the last few days. Biker week ended today, so the streets are once again quiet (thank you, Lord). We took the boat out today and rode down to Hidden Treasure Raw Bar & Grill for lunch with neighbors Brandi and Todd.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend, and I hope your coming week is filled with nothing but good things.
