I’ve had a bit of a rough go of it lately. The rescue sent me to a new doctor for my eyes and she wants to try a new medicine before we decide what to do about the surgery. Everyone is really hoping that I’ll be able to keep my sight (me especially). The new doc was nice and all, so that wasn’t so bad, but what was NO fun was I had a hernia surgery done about a week ago, so I’ve been feeling yucky lately. The doctor said that my hernia was a really big one and very old so it was a toughie, but I’m a trooper, and I made it through just fine. I’m feeling better every day, too, but we have to be really careful of my stiches since it took so many to put me back together. My mom checks me all the time and she says I look a lot better. She says that I am in really good spirits, too, and now that she’s with me all day, all I want to do is lay on her lap. I’m most happy when we sit in the rocking chair and rock and rock (hey, maybe that’s how I got my name?). I just drape myself in her arms and drift off. It’s the best! I’d stay there all day and night. I also love my sister now. When Mom’s out, we curl up together in the bed. Just so you know I am house trained and just about the greatest dog ever. Almost ever, because then there are these things called CATS!
My mom found out something else about me just the other day. I am not a fan of CATS! We were outside last week and this CAT! came up to me. I didn’t know what it was at first, I don’t see very well if you remember, but after I few seconds, I smelled that it was a CAT! and I nearly jumped out of my skin. Dogs are fine, I’ve met plenty of those, no problem, but, whew! CATS! are a totally different story.
Anyway, I’m feeling a little bit tired, especially after thinking about that CAT! so I gotta go for now. I’ll let you know how I am doing soon! And oh yeah, just a reminder I am still costing a lot of money because before I became a United Yorkie Rescue super star I wasn’t taken care of very well and now I need all this medicine and surgeries. I am getting better and better, but if you could maybe help United Yorkie Rescue a little and give them some money for me, hey that would be about fantastic, because I am really worth it. Like I said I am a Super Star.
Love you all, Rocky
