Take my advice. When Mom tells you to get away from the snake, listen! Because when you don't and they bite you, it is not good.
It has been a long, hard road, but I am finally feeling better. Mom has even said she will let me write again. But unfortunately, I probably won't be doing much traveling anymore. Between the fact that I am getting a bit old now (105 years old Mom says) and the fact that battling the snake bite took a lot out of me, I'm just not up to it anymore. So Mom says it is time for me to retire and let the young pup do the traveling. And so any further travel adventures will be brought to you by Austin. You remember Austin - that pampered, furry rat Mom brought home?
Now that does not mean that I am being put completely out to pasture? (Do dogs get put out to pasture? Okay, maybe we just get put in the dog house.) Whatever - I will still be working. Mom and I are building an entire site just for pets - particulary dogs. And she has said I can use a big part of it to promote adoption and spay/neuter programs. Since I am a former pound puppy, this is a very important issue for me and I can't wait to get started.
All of our family will have a piece. So over the next few days, I will introduce you to the rest of them. You'll meet Ginger and Oscar, Iris, Cobweb, Puck, and Peasebottom, and even Bubba. You might even get to meet the raccoon twins if they decide to put in an appearance. You'll learn a bit about how they came to be part of the family and what each of them will be contributing to our site. That way, when it's ready, you'll already know us - you'll be part of our family too!
I do want to thank everyone who has sent me kind wishes while I have been recovering. And whoever the mystery benefactor is that sent the Beefie Boots - you are my new BFF! You know who you are. Thank you. You made little dog VERY happy!
