Why hello there, my dear fans! Let me begin by telling you that I am truly sorry for not updating you on my progress! The human that I have writing for me has been busy at work and out of town for a conference... Actually, I had to contact her mid-flight to remind her to give you an update on her layover between flights!
Anyways!! There's not a whole lot to update you on, I guess. I told you about the bath that foster mom made me take... Gosh, those are horrible. But I love getting all the rubs and attention! Here's my post bath picture... It's a little embarrassing. Don't laugh too much! I'm totally not sharing my during bath picture with you... they are blackmail waiting to happen! And after all, I am a lady!
Let's see.... what else? I told you about my foster brothers... well, those are foster mom's resident dogs that live here forever - they've already found their forever homes. I'm still waiting for the perfect one to come along! But let me show you some pictures.... before you judge, just know, they do love me... I promise! I struggle with the concept of personal space so my foster mom has to give them alone time so they can get a break from all my love I want to share! The big Great Dane, that's Blue. He plays tug-o-war with me! I know he could totally win every time, but I think he feels bad sometimes and let's me win. I say whatever... a win is a win no matter how it had to happen! Just look at these pictures!
I like to spend my days sun bathing in what is left of the NC sunshine and heat! I have this super comfy chair in my foster mom's office at home where I can catch all the rays while she is at work. She's lucky to be able to work from home a lot of days because I know I fill her day with joy! Well.... maybe it's me who is lucky! Remember how I said I don't understand personal space.... I really, really, really like being with my foster mom. Like, Blue and I try to see who can be closer to her during the day! I am happy as long as I am close by, have sunshine, and have my favorite toys to chew on. Look at these super awesome pictures!! (My foster mom takes good pictures of me! I'm actually sure her camera roll is full of doggie pictures, and that's okay by me!)
I guess you're wondering how I am doing medically... well, I guess you can say I'm doing better and improving daily. I know I still have a long way to go, but I am receiving medical treatment for the mange, but I am up to 35 pounds now! I have seen my friend the vet several times and she is pleased with how far I've come in just three weeks. It even seems like some of my hair is starting to grow back in! I can't wait to show you all how pretty I'll be once I'm all better!
Remember that dog I told you about, Howie the Hound Pup with the broken leg? He's doing better and receiving medical care now, too. I can't tell you enough how awesome these Maggie Society people are. They really go out of their way to make sure that all us critters are loved and cared for! The thing is, they didn't win that huge lottery that just got won by someone in SC! So they are always in need of donations to help care for me, Howie the Hound Pup, and for every other dog that comes into the program. When you donate to The Maggie Society, please know that these people really are using it all to care for the dogs like me. Without people like you, they couldn't do their work.
I leave you with one last picture of me. Foster mom took a picture while I was talking to her... actually, I was trying to convince her to let me sit in her lap while on an important call. Oops! Enjoy the picture! Until next time, kisses and tail wags! XOXOXO - Anna Christi
