Dear Readers of my mommy’s blog,
My mommy said that writing thank you notes is the polite thing to do. And that I’m lucky I’m a dog because I don’t have to sit at a desk in my room for hours until ALL the letters are written. And I’m even more lucky that I live in the age of technology because I can send a blanket thank you to all of you instead of writing individual notes like my Nana made mommy write when she was my age.
Anyway, I am supposed to say thank you to all of you for… MOMMY!!! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO THANK THEM FOR????…Oh yeah, for your notes of concern and well-wishes.
I think I got better faster because I had so many people cheering me on. My mommy and daddy fed me by hand and would hold my water up to my mouth so I wouldn’t have to bend my neck. They stopped doing that now, and that kind of makes me mad. What? Suddenly I’m better, so now I don’t deserve to be pampered as all wieners should???
Anyway… My neck is working much better now. I can bark without pain, and that’s my favorite activity so I was very happy to do that again. And I sniffed my brother and my sister yesterday, they both still stink. They said they loved me and I just told them to stop being weird and get away from before I bite them.
Mommy said I have to stop writing my thank you letter now and get ready for Nana to get here. She is coming to make sure I’m okay. What? Oh, Mommy said she’s coming to see her and my Aunt Mary Margaret… but whatever, Nana always loves me best.
Love – Nigel
A little follow up from Nigel’s mommy: Nigel is still on very many pain medications. We’ll know his true condition in a few more weeks as we slowly decrease his intake of drugs. But so far, very very good!!! Thank you to all of you for caring so much about my weenie of a wiener. You know he’s my baby, so I’ve been THRILLED with his progress.
