I’m mortified. In response to my telling my girlfriend how much I better I felt after two injections at the vet she had the audacity to ask if I was developing a drug problem. She highlighted the number of times I’ve been to the vet over the last year. What kind of dog does she think I am? I was hoping for her sympathy rather than being made to feel like a criminal. Would it be any wonder if I had resorted to extreme measures? She was the one who went off with another dog and had puppies with him. It’s not my fault I couldn’t give her puppies. It’s all rather taken the edge off how much better I’m feeling and the lovely get well wishes the rest of you have sent me. I suppose this is one of the problems of having a younger girlfriend. It will be a while before she starts to suffer some of the indignities of old age. She told me she’s planning to go off with another dog again in a few months too. She really knows how to spoil a boy’s day. It might be time to move on, but she’s the only girl I’ve ever been crazy about.
Maybe I need to think of a plan to show her how much I care about her. I know my Mistress still believes in me, but it was nice to have a girlfriend of my own as well. Maybe my Mistress could help me to find a present for her and wrap it. I just need a good idea now.
Little Heidi is making progress very slowly, but at least it’s in the right direction. It’s going to take her a while to recover but at least she seems to be off the critical list now.
