Good morning. Guess what? It's snowing!!! I took Pogo out earlier for his morning sprinkle, and saw these tiny little white spits falling from the sky. Let me update that thought. I have just looked out the window, and there is no more snow. Hmmm, just a little shower. Maybe we'll get more later in the day. I wonder how Pogo will react to snow?
Yesterday, Pogo had his first health checkup at the VCA hospital. Needless to say, everyone there fell in love with him. Good food agrees with him because he weighed in at five pounds fully dressed. Woo Hoo!
He checked out pretty good, but his doctor told me something I did not know. Pogo came to me without any teeth, but I was not aware that he had no lower jaw bone either. He was not born that way, and the more I think of it, I get very angry. I can't imagine what this poor little guy went through for six years and three months before he was rescued. It breaks my heart to think about it.
It's taking a while to type this post because Pogo keeps hopping up on my lap to play. He loves cuddling. So we cuddle. I love it too.
We have gone through a lot of doggie food brands, but I think we have found one that Pogo likes. It's called "Paws". They sell it at the market where his daytime sitter works, so that is very handy. Today she is working so she will pick some more up for us.
Well, I got a few more gifts wrapped, and a few small packages ready to be mailed. I think I'm starting to get into the swing of things. I admit I used a bit of psychology on myself. I spread everything out on my bed so that I could see what there was. Little by little, I take something off the bed and wrap it. Until the bed is clear, I will have to keep sleeping on the sofa. (I'm more than half done.)
Now I just have to pick up more wrapping paper and a bag of bows. Then we wait for the rest of the packages to arrive so that we can get those gifts wrapped too. I've been trying to figure out what to write in my letter to Santa, and it's not easy coming up with things that I want or need.
I'm very blessed and already have all the things that are important to me. Perhaps I will give extra gifts to the MSPCA and the ASPCA. I think Pogo might send a little gift to the agency that rescued him. Yes, that's what I think we will do.
I have something adorable to share with you. This is one of the designs I came up with while I was working on my cards and my calendar. Now tell me, is this not the cutest little dog ever?
Pogo would not sit and pose with the hat so I Photoshopped it onto his head. Gosh, he is just so precious! I had so much fun working on the different designs, and I'm pleased at how my cards and calendars turned out.
Now I need to get dressed and put in a load of laundry. Maybe even push the vacuum around a bit too. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a really nice day.
Hugs, Edna B.
