Why hello there!! I am so glad that you are here to check on how I am doing today! I had my good human friends tell you all about how I was one day one and two, but I'm feeling much better and wanted to give you an update myself! Let's see... where to begin!!
I got to experience an awesome futon couch last night!! I have to wear a stupid cone again since I am so itchy and I'm wanting to bite at my itchies! While I'm not a fan of the cone, I know that it's for the best and it's not permanent. Oh! Back to the couch that I got to enjoy!! I made myself right at home there! I think that I liked it so much so that I could get up and walk around - stretch my legs and cuddle with my foster mom. Speaking of my foster mom - OH MY GOODNESS - she's my favorite! Absolutely amazing person and she even made sure she reassured me when we went outside when it was dark outside. I think she realized that I was a little scared of the dark. She didn't judge me at all and stayed with me the whole time! Man, I love her!
Oh - food - totally something that I LOVE, too! My foster mom says that I eat like a champ! I'm even taking my icky meds too. Foster mom thinks she is being sneaky by using those Pill Pockets... Oh, I know the meds are in there, but those things are so yummy! I think it's a fair trade - I get endless pill pockets and take my meds, and my foster mom feels sneaky and smart! She has no idea just how smart I am! I'm eating and drinking well - and I even seem to have this whole "potty outside" thing down pat! I mean - duh - I'm not a savage - I know potty time means outside time!
Speaking of outside - I LOVE THAT TOO! I haven't found many things I don't like. I enjoy wagging my tail and being in the green grass outside. I am hoping the weather gets cooler and stays pretty so that I can have lots of outside time with my foster mom. Have I told you how much she loves me? She even slept with me last night on the futon. I don't mind sharing the comfy, cushy space with her. She doesn't even mind that I'm a little stinky right now because of my skin condition. She loves me despite my smell and looks. But honestly, I know that I am a beauty!
Guess what! There are so many people that have donated money and have shown that they care about me. I've been told that I might start trending... I don't even know what that means. What I do know is that me and my foster mom have been interviewed twice by two very awesome news people! I guess people saw my rescue story and actually care about animals and how we are all treated. I wouldn't wish this on any pup, but I am glad that there is attention being brought to how us critters are being treated. I'm so glad that a rescue found me. If I could pay everyone back in kisses and tail wags, all my fans would be millionaires.
While I am feeling so much better, I know that I have a long road ahead of me. I am still receiving treatment for my skin issues. I'm not sure how much longer I have to take meds, but as long as there are pill pockets, I'm game for taking meds! I want to say thank you to each and every person that has donated towards my care. I would have never imagined that there would be so many generous people out there. Seriously, all your love, donations, prayers, well wishes, thoughts, shares, and virtual hugs are making me feel better! Continue to share my story and if possible, donate to my vet care. If the money that is donated to my care exceeds the cost of my treatment, the remaining money will go towards the vet care of other dogs that are in the care of my rescue group, The Maggie Society.
Well, that's all for now! Here are a few pictures of me in my foster home! I'll update more tomorrow! I'm not sure what I've got on my social calendar for tomorrow, but I'm sure I'll check in with you soon! Until then, kisses and tail wags! XOXO - Anna Christi
