we had a bit of a skayr a fyoo weeks ago wen my resting breething rayt shot up for sevral days and on akkownt of mama and dada ar obsessd with how fast i breethe wen i am sleeping that reezulted in a buntch of trips to the vetnameez playse to chek my hart and my bluds and stuf but none of that ternd up ennything spesifik so mama and dada deesided it wuz probly doo to a jeneral level of diskomfort frum by eye beady or the owtcheosarkoma or both and so they started me on sumthing kalld sea beady oil wich is suppozed to help with that sort of thing!!! at first i got it in frum an i-dropper wich i think is sum kind of appel produkt but that mayd me kind of nawzeayted so then mama figgerd owt she cud put the oil inside a kapsool and then giv me the kapsool and that has wurkd owt mutch better!!! my breething rayt is bak down to ware it wuz befor so that is gud!!!
mama and dada say that i hav always had a gud appetite eeven dooring my eye beady flair ups but sinse starting it abowt a week ago the sea beady oil has helpd with how i wood git an upset tummy after eeting wich mayks me mor willing to eet wen i am hungry!!! i hav gaynd bak several pownds wot i had lost agin dooring my laytest flair up and also they say i hav seemd perkier!!! i am not shoor eksaktly wot perky meens but i think it has sumthing to do with how mutch i yammer becuz yammering is sumthing i do verry wel wen i am feeling gud!!!
see first i yammer and wag my tail then i go to my mat for a cookie!!! that is how its dun!!! in addishun to yammering i am stil up for a nice long snuffel shuffel arownd the bakyard as wel!!!

ennyway mama and dada say that i am on borrowd time but as long as i am perky and tail waggy and happy things ar all rite in my wurld!!! i do not no hoo they borrowd the time frum or how mutch time they borrowd but i suppoze that meens eventchooally they wil hav to giv the time bak!!! i hav herd them say that wen that happens and the owtcheosarkoma starts to be owtchie agin so that i am not happy and tail waggy then it wil be time for me to cross the bridj to see trixie and tucker agin but it is not that time yet!!! wich is gud becuz i stil hav unfinishd items on my to do list as the king of kalifornya!!! ok bye
