|Looking for ducks|
Everyday Mommy and Papa take me on long walks through the fields and around the lake across from the road from us. I love looking for birds and squirrels and being able to run around off leash. I'm very careful to stay away from the road and listen when Mommy or Papa calls me.

Last week, Mommy took my to my new Vet. She said it was something called a "Meet and Greet." I really like him and I tried very hard to behave. The stories of my past behaviors at the vet followed me, so I was afraid that if I did something wrong, my new family might send me back. Not to fear, Dr. Peter helped me feel at ease and even gave me some yummy treats each time I did what he asked me to. Oh Boy, oh boy oh boy! Were those treats good!
Dr. Peter told me that I have lost 4.5 lbs and that I am more than halfway to my ideal weight. Looks like my diet is working and all the exercise is doing some good. I hope I lose the rest of my weight soon though, if given a choice, I'd much rather spend my days sleeping on my bed next to Mommy and her computer. She needs me to help keep her on task.
I have more good news. I don't have to have the benign melanoma on my eyelid removed right away. Dr. Peter said that it wasn't causing my runny eyes. It is instead my lower eyelids slightly rolling in toward my peepers. The bad news is that he also said that I need to get my teeth cleaned really bad. I might even lose a couple teeth. Ugh! Does it hurt when they pull your teeth?
I'm starting to feel really at home here now. I still have times when I feel really sad and don't want to anything at all, but they are getting fewer and fewer. I no longer carry my old collar around everywhere I go. I now carry my leash. It is a lot more fun to drag it around and tell everyone that I want to go for a walk than carrying an old boring collar around.

This is the best home evar!
