I don’t normally talk much about Thailing–she has a different relationship with me than I have with Mystic.
Mom says she was like that with Maggie and Toby, my doggy soul mates that came before me, so I’m not to feel too bad. Actually, I don’t. I’d just as soon she’d play with me, but that’s not to be, I guess.
Mom says Thailing has some sickies. Her thyroid doesn’t work right and she gets some medicine stuff stuck inside her ear twice a day. When I see the glove come on, I know it’s going to happen! Thailing doesn’t mind anymore, but when we went to the vet the other day, we found out she has even more sickies. Something called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Maybe that’s why she only weighs 7 pounds. Me? I’m a svelte 41 pounds.
Mom says we have to fatten Thailing up a bit, so we went to the kitty store and got some new kitty food. And they both LOVE it! But that’s not all–she gets some yummy smelling chicken that Mom cooks.
She gobbles it down! Me, being the best dog ever, watch from afar–wishin’ I had some of it.But I get to watch Mom fix it. After poaching a chicken breast, Mom cuts it up in little pieces and freezes it in an ice-cube tray. Then all she has to do is take out one of the sections for a special meal. Um, she did sneak me a little piece. 🙂
On top of all this yummy new food, Thailing gets a little chew pill (prednisone) that she likes (so far) to help with her IBS problems. We hope she gets to feeling better soon, but not before the chicken is all gone!
