Wednesday July 4: Mommy was home today day so we got to go outside quite a bit, that is until she wanted to watch a movie. About halfway through her movie she noticed my paw swelling. I wasn't going to tell her about it because I knew it would mean bad news for me. And it did. It was swelled up like a catcher's mitt and I couldn't walk on it, so it was really hard to hide.
Mommy gave me some Benedryl but then decided it was best to just take me to the vet since the same thing happened to Velvet a few weeks ago (but hers was all four paws). Since it was a holiday, mommy had to take me to the Emergency Clinic. I hate going to the vet but I think I like that place better than my regular vet. The car ride is about half as long and there's almost no animals there. The vet took blood and gave me two shots and some antibiotics to take home. She didn't know what caused my swelling but suspected it was from a spider or other insect. Mommy said ok but what happened to Velvet? We still don't know but at least we know how to treat it.
I was very glad to get back home but then the noises started: eeeeeeeeeee, boom, pop, sizzle, boom, pop, pop, pop. It scared me so I hid under the dresser for about an hour. I thought the noises were never going to stop. Mommy said they lasted for five hours. Once I realized they wouldn't get me, I climbed in bed with mommy, but I was still cautious. Neither one of us slept very well because of the boom, pop and my paw. By morning, my paw was almost normal again and the boom, pop had stopped.
July 6: Today I'm six months old! I'm also six pounds and half an ounce according to the vet two days ago. I'm getting to be a big girl. I bet I catch up to Marina in no time.
Mommy had to pull two of my teeth today. They were loose and bothering me. I didn't want her to touch my mouth but I couldn't get her to stop. I was glad when they were gone. It's tough being a baby.
July 7 (Part 1): What a great surprise to wake up and find I'm a Diary Pick of the Day! How exciting! Mommy said that means someone likes my stories. I will have to keep writing so whoever liked my stories can hear more.
Today I get to be a flower girl in Marina's wedding. I'm excited. I can't wait for everyone to see me walk down the aisle. I hope I do a good job for Marina. She and Truman are so happy.
Time to go prepare for the wedding!!
