I was skimming through sites focused on dogs, writing, and all things happy when I came across the latest from the blog Change is Hard, written by Dawn Kinster with frequent observations and opinions shared by her Sheltie, Katie. If you’ve spent any time at all with a Sheltie, you’ll understand when Dawn says:
“Katie says she has stuff to say. Of course she does. She’s a sheltie.”
And right on cue, Katie has an update for us today on her health, happiness, and continuing zest for life. The ups and downs of life are reflected in today’s post, aptly titled It’s been a tough few weeks. Hop over to Dawn’s blog and read the latest!
If you missed Katie’s story on previous posts here and on Dawn’s blog Change is Hard .. but change is certain, you can catch up on all of Katie’s adventures and enjoy her mama’s fabulous photos taken during her travels.
She hurried up and packed my adventure bag (treats, water, poop bags, you know, the essentials) and the next thing I know she’s putting stuff in the car and I’m not sure if I’m invited, so I follow her right down the steps into the garage.
Mama laughed and put me in my car so I knew I got to go. I was all wiggle butt. And I was even more excited when I got to get out of the car in a few minutes and we were at my park! Last time I got to go somewhere I ended up at the vet. I was not so wiggle butt there, I can tell you that!
My own Sheltie, by the way, shares Katie’s opinion of vet visits. We’re still waiting for Sasha’s coat to grow in after having her flank shaved for surgery in late fall. Until it does, I insist she wear a coat that covers her flanks. Sasha is not impressed. She’s not impressed by snow, either, and would rather stay on the covered patio and watch Buddy The Wonder Cat leap around the backyard whenever it snows, even when it’s just a dusting. Without much exercise, Sasha is likely to gain more than Katie’s “Covid 2 pounds” before we venture out to the park ourselves!
