I George - Alas My Poor Life

I've had a ruff week.
I've had to get a BATH:-(
Seth put me in mom's shower and then hosed me down...If that wasn't bad enough, he poured soap on smelled like coconut (not stinky at all;-(

I don't care for the fluffy look!

But now, at least I'm dry!

Then on Thursday night I started coughing really hard. Mom said that I sounded like I had The Croup. I didn't know what that was, but it sounded like poop - so I thought "that's a good thing". But apparently not...cause I had to go to the vets office on Friday.
Now don't get me wrong - I like going to the vets.
They are always really nice to me, and there is LOTS of good stuff to sniff...
...but mom looked so worried.
I got poked and prodded and ex-rayed.
Dr. Danezac said the good news, was that I didn't have peemonia.
The bad news, is that 1/2 of my trachea has collapsed.
Now, I'm not supposed to get hot or excited...
... and I have to take more pills ...
...and I have to go on another D*I*E*T.
I got a new bag of food and some cans of food too.
Mom started me on it last night, and I must say that the stuff tasted pretty good
I heard her say that she's starting me on green beans tonight.
What the heck did I do to deserve that?

It's soooooooooooooo hot here that the vet said that
I can only go outside to potty really early in the morning...
... like before the sun is up (and darn it - I like to sleep in)...
... and then way after it gets dark in the evening.
And I can't play around and sniff stuff - I just have to go out and get it done real quick.
The rest of the time I have to use my litter box!

Well enough about me...
...get your cameras out!
