Hi everyone

I thought it was about time for an update, and I've finally got my paws on the computer, so here we go!

First of all, I need to report that I have struggled through my recent travails, never complaining, and recovered from my bum pimple surgery (I had it done at the same time as I was getting my teeth cleaned).

Oh, the pain, the pain of it all!

I had three bum pimples removed, but fortunately my enormous, red, pulsating face tumour was already shrinking by the time I got to the vet, so we decided to let it finish shrinking itself. The vet found a third bum pimple to make up for it.

Right now it's the Spring Racing Carnival, where all the horsies get dressed up and run round and round a racetrack and all the humans get dressed up and get drunk and fall over. (My human went to the Melbourne Cup when she was living in Sydney and did a road trip with some friends - they ended up partying in the carpark and not actually going into the races - which is actually another race tradition!)

Before we moved to my new house kennel we lived close to the racecourse, and my vet is still right by it, so we had to schedule the stitches-taking-out appointment in between race days, or we wouldn't have been able to get near it for all the traffic.

This year I decided to join in the fashionableness of it all, and designed this highly desirable leg jewellery.

Now, some jealous people, for example my totally untalented human, may try to tell you that I somehow got a toilet roll stuck on my leg, couldn't get it off, and jumped up onto the couch for a nap, resigned to having my leg stuck in a toilet roll for all eternity.

Obviously this is not true, and if my human had the slightest bit of creative talent she would recognise that I am clearly modelling the latest in puppy princess fashions. And that I look fabulous. As always.
