Well, the last member of the Chicago Crew, the bulldog WINston, left for the Rainbow Bridge Sept. 19th. All three of my doggy roommates left--Remo in July, Lucy in August and now WINston. I am still here.
After Lucy left, Mum and Dad adopted a Flat-coated Retriever/Border Collie mix that had been in a shelter for six months. She's called Dixie. (personally, I thought one dog was MORE than enough--and now we're back to one dog with WINston leaving...)
Dixie thinks I'm a fun thing to chase. She's almost all black so even though I've got superior eyesight, she can still sneak up on me in the dark. Makes for some interesting times here. But, I have to say, I do miss that Bulldog. He was fun the tease. And to jump over. And to startle. And Remo, well, he was like my pawrent. I miss them both. Lots.
P.S. a medical update: Crystals are gone from the urine now that I'm strictly on Royal Canine Feline Urinary SO. I get the dry kibble in my auto-feeder, and one can of the wet every morning. It's pretty good. Now Mum just has to find a way to stop me from pulling out my back hair. (I started it after Remo left, then let it grow back, and now I'm at it again after WINston left... the vet is talkin' kitty prozac...)
