We thought we would give an update on Franklin. He is doing just fine, the sores have cleared up and the skin is now nice and pink. He had his second bath with the special shampoo last night and he isn't scratching or itchy. Bonnie herself is also feeling much better today. She has good days and bad but today is a good day and mom took Bonnie to the craft store this morning so she could gets some more paints. At 80 Bonnie has just took up water color painting and is loving it and she is very good at it too! As for me, I am feeling a bit left out, I can't go and visit Franklin until the end of next week providing he gets the all clear. I am trying to be patient but it's not easy and I get very upset when mom goes over there without me. Yesterday one of the wooden slats on the blind at the window where I look out got broken. Mom asked me if I had been jumping up at the window while she was at Bonnies, because she said I looked a little "sheepish". I told her I am doggish and not sheepish and that it must of been the sock moster trying to take dad's sock outside again. Mom says she wonders why the 'sock monster didn't just go out the doggie door like 'he' normally does. Somehow I don't think mom believed me and I may have to enlist the services of Martha and Bailey to represent me in this case. The good thing is though, mom took me to the leash free park, so I guess I can't complain too much. Mom was trying to be silly and when I wasn't looking she hid behind some tall grass. I wasn't scared or anything when I couldn't see her but I thought I had better come running back to make sure SHE was okay. These are my "I'm coming to save you Mom photos" I was hoping to see some of my buddies there today but alas we were the only ones there. Can you imagine that, we have this wonderful park and hardly anyone goes there. At least I could leave them LOTS of pee-mail to let them know that I had been there. I also had a great time checking all the pee-mail they had left. This weekend is the Apple Jack Festival at Nebraska City and Mom, Dad and I are going to go to pick some fresh apples get apple cidar and have a picnic. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend too.
