Minnie has had her nails clipped, tiny lump checked. She lost weight gained, she is 10 years old and she is heartworm FREE! She is graying, has arthritis and I was told to treat her like a Dresden doll. They fussed over her and agreed she is super sweet. They think name change was great and commented she immediately responds to it. YEAH Minnie! On way home from Pet Vet, sitting in her car seat she turned to me with her big, saddest look as if to say “I have been so good and I didn’t like the cream cheese they tried to bribe me with” sooo. Well, Chewy’s complied and she got 1/2 a chewable tablet for the first time delivered just when we returned home. We are not telling her it is for good digestion. After running in circles once in house to make us safe, she collapsed and on her blanket commenced her soft snore. Thank you DREAM Team.

Minnie Mouse has just returned from an over three thousand mile car trip to Los Angeles where she visited her human’s adult daughter. It was an adventure. She visited every rest area on I-10 from Houston to LA leaving her calling card. She was dismayed to read a sign in Arizona warning of snakes and tarantulas, but she is a brave little Texan and gave a hardy growl. She was not thrilled with her back seat booster on the way out, but was delighted with her protected front seat booster riding shotgun on the way home. She was intrigued by city streets noisy as they were. After being praised for her watchdog tendencies, she was downright bewildered by her need to be quiet when smuggled into an apartment for her stay. She visited numerous stores and restaurants residing in a sling she came to love since it was chilly out there. In New Mexico she growled at snowflakes, slid on ice and truly missed Texas sunshine. The highlight of her Christmas Day was discovering a soft chewy bone (she has three teeth and a jawbone to be protected) in her monogrammed stocking. Along with her owner, she came to hate the smell of fast food (although she didn’t get to share) and rejoiced to be given a tablespoon of baked, shredded chicken hiding amongst her healthy food on her return home. The first night home she yipped, ran circles, sniffed and inspected her home. She ran up her steps, plopped in the middle of the bed she shares with her human and let out a huge sigh. It was as if on her entire trip lurking in the back of her mind she was wary of being left again but now she knew she was truly home and truly loved.

Once again, thank you for this simply marvelous little dog.
