A Story from Opal, a Mastiff recently adopted from us!
Hey, Girls, Bubbles here! Just to let you guys know I am doing fabulously. I had my tooth surgery yesterday - it definitely was shattered and had to come out in many pieces, but they packed my gum with stuff and sewed me up so I get soft stuff for a few weeks! It hasn't slowed me down much though and soon I will be feeling 300% better! I have put on 6+ pounds and the vet says I am just perfect now. Mom has me in obedience class - with other doggies and of course, I am the class clown! I can't go by the mirrors without admiring how beautiful I am and when they try to do this 'recall' thing, I put the leash in my mouth and walk myself, eventually, over to Mom! I am learning sit, stay, down, come (when I feel like it) and am walking really well on a leash! Mom has me coming back to her, sometimes, with the squeaky ball but mostly l just love my tummy rubbed and I lay right beside Mom and she rubs it for hours! Dad rubs my head and kisses me lots and I really like that! Oh, and I almost get into the Jeep by myself (ok, I put my front paws up and Mom lifts my bottom in) by I am loving getting out and meeting peoples. The kids in the 'hood line up for the bus in the morning and on our morning walk Mom lets me stop and kiss them all and they all know my name. They all giggle! Kids are sticky and always have tasty stuff on their faces! All in all, life is great and I just love my new home - even if I do have to go into that cagey thing when Mom goes to work. I go in all by myself now but I still give Mom that guilt look though, just for good measure.
Mom and Dad have about 100 pix of me but Dad only sent the three you will see on the next email! Thanks for everything, ladies - you saved me for 2 people who love me more than you know! Have a great Christmas, Mom says I am the best present of all!!
