Adventures with dog

One thing about life with Miss P, there is never a dull moment.   Of course there are aggravating moments,  sad moments, goofy moments, expensive moments, embarrassing moments, etc.

She does have that adorable face and curly fur, and she gets frequent compliments from total strangers about these.

She has a lot of appointments to go to; once a week she gets acupuncture and physical therapy for her back legs.   And she goes swimming as well to keep in shape, because a girl has to watch her figure.

Here she is at a political rally, with our congressman growing out of her head.   She gets around!

She’s a “lady who lunches”, out and about town.

In her never-ending quest to break the bank, she is a frequent visitor the the veterinarian’s office.    Her most recent visit came about because of two incidents:   She takes a lot of pills, and a spoonful of liver sausage makes the medicine go down (I think that there is a song about this).   I foolishly threw the outer plastic wrapper in the trash.   This is apparently an open invitation to raid the trash can in dog language, so she did.    And then she was up several times in the night needing urgently to go outside, the brat.   The other incident was not really her fault, she stepped in a gopher hole and fell on a cactus!    Curse you, evil gophers.   So I pulled out the more obvious cactus spines, but I couldn’t really see the tiny spines, so it was off to the vet’s office.    They did try not to laugh, but it was a unique and goofy problem.

I stole this idea for a picture from the internet, but I think it totally fits her personality, half dog and half rampaging monster (not sure if it’s 50/50).   But I love her and she is a special dog, at least to me.
