Arrival Story: Tinker Bell was given to me as a gift. She has been my best friend ever since!
Bio: Tinker Bell is the princess of the family. Tink is very sweet and has a very nice personality. She does not mind wearing clothes, and I think she knows she looks cute wearing them. Tink loves to be carried around in a bag, often trying to climb into my small handbags! (She weighs 10 lbs.!) She is a joy to live with.
I have a couple of more weeks to go before my ACL surgery is completely healed. I'm not allowed to jump anymore, which is very difficult. My mom never realized how much I used to jump. My mom is so happy that I'm not in pain anymore!!
Now I am seven years old! The years have gone by very quickly! Just the other day I was a little tiny puppy! In my family, I'm the oldest dog! Yikes! Originally, I was the baby of the family! What happened?!
I'm going to be celebrating my birthday this weekend. My mom will be making a cake, but it is going to be a human cake! Hmph! I did get a special variety of Merrick's dog food can today though, and some pieces of chicken! I LOVE food! Next time I go to my Granny's house, we will stop at the dog bakery for my favorite meatball treats!
As for presents, my mom is going to be ordering me a special pendant for my collar! It's a Q-Link! They sell them for humans and pets. My mom wears one. She isn't sure it's as helpful as they claim, but she thinks sleep-wise, that it's helping her. So, for that reason alone, she is buying me a Q-Link for pets. I'll report back in my diary when I receive it, and then again after I wear it for a while to tell you all if it seems helpful.
This weekend, I will also be going for my special birthday ride! Next to eating, I love car rides!
I also want to thank everyone for my birthday presents and birthday wishes! I LOVE birthdays!
Well I pulled a couple of ligaments in my leg! That's why it hurts so much! I'm on painkillers, and the doctor says I have to stay calm and quiet for the next few weeks! Hopefully after that I'll be as good as new.
My X-rays showed I had a bit of arthritis in my hips; that isn't causing my problem though. My spine is in good condition. So are my kneecaps, which often can cause a lot of problems for my breed. Apparently, my leg should show improvement in a week. In the meantime I will be taking short walks, and riding in my camo stroller.
Thank you for all the emails, presents, prayers, and well wishes!
