Looking Up

Things are looking up on a few fronts this week! First of all, my shoulder is feeling better, so I'm not limping as much, so THAT means second of all, that the mommas are letting me and Remy wrassle again! Just a little - not full dog on dog action yet. But YAY! I just love wrasslin! We went to vet last week and they took a bunch of x-rays (but I don't remember that part of the visit - it was weird but I was just soooo sleepy I slept right through the x-ray part of it) and the staff at the vet clinic were all super nice to me and they threatened to keep me just 'cause I am SUCH a sweet girl and ANYWAYS, the x-rays didn't show anything wrong. Which is also good news. It means it's probably a torn muscle, and that it will heal if I just slow down. Which is really hard. I'm not going for walks or really big plays, but I AM allowed to play and mouth fight a little, 'cause if I'm not? I can be really persistant and a pain in the butt! Heh heh heh! Remy and I like to play tug together, and neither one of us likes to give up, so sometimes the games go on for 10 minutes!

Another cool thing about living at the farm? The stars! I had no idea there were so many stars in the sky! In the city you might see a few of the brighter ones, but really, you just don't realize how many many of them there are. On the weekend the mommas found "canis major" - the dog constellation. It doesn't look much like a dog to me. But that doesn't matter. As long as I get to go outside and sniff and pee? They can stand there and stargaze all they want.

Well! We have been super busy around here! For starters, Remy and I, and the mommas and the Leave-its, have moved to the farm! Momma C says we haven't "officially" moved, whatever that means, 'cause for now we're just trying it out to see if we like living out there. And guess what? I LOVE living out there! There are just so many great places to explore, and sniff, and dig, and there are barn Leave-its to chase when nobody's looking (but I don't do that, only Remy does - heh heh heh! That's right - bad Remy! Bad BAD Remy! tee hee hee!) and we get to run around and play almost all we want, and go for swims even though the water's getting cold these days, and roll in the dirt and EVERYTHING! The one bummer part is that I can't really blog from the farm, since the connection out there is kind of lousy.

The other bummer thing is that right now and for three whole weeks I'm not supposed to play or run or do stairs or ANYTHING! I'm not even supposed to go for leash walks. Come on! I mean sure, I've had a limp since summertime, but I've tried to downplay it, you know, 'cause really it doesn't hurt THAT much and I was sure it was nothing serious... just an ol' jollyball injury flaring up, but now the vet says there's something hurt in my shoulder. And to give it a chance to heal, I have to do nothing. NOTHING! NOTHING AT ALL! And the mommas are being pretty devoted to that mission, and so I'm not having much fun.

Although I do get carried around alot, and Remy doesn't, and so that's cool. (Good Kinka! Good GOOD Kinka! "Way up high Kinka.... yup, I like THAT!)

But yeah. The next three weeks are going to be bor-ing. That's all I have to say for now.
