Howdy everypawdy! It’s Buster again. It’s been a while since I wrote. Momma says the “plague” has been in our house. I don’t know what that means, but I heard the words: “flu”, “cough”, “fever”, “runny nose”, and then later on I heard the words: “stomach flu” and “vomit”. All I know is the 4 human people haven’t been feeling so great for a lot of days.
Did everypawdy have a good Christmas? I did. I got to be indoors for Christmas and I never got that with the people I used to live with. My Mastiff cousin Burley and I learned that you don’t pee on the tree inside, though, or the humans get a little upset. I didn’t know. Why else would you have a tree inside, unless you didn’t want us to pee on it? Momma couldn’t believe I peed on it, because it had been up for 3 weeks before I peed on it, but Burley did it too- he used to be an outside dog too until Grandma and Grandpa rescued him. Next Christmas we won’t pee on it.
Momma and Daddy were worried about Finchy over Christmas break. He was vomiting blood a lot and not eating, but then he stopped and started eating again. We have been wrestling a lot, and before it got really cold this weekend, we were running around the backyard a lot, and Momma was taking us on walks. She said she’s not taking me on a walk today because something about a “-5 wind chill”. I don’t know what that means, but I know she keeps making me come inside today. It snowed last night, and I like rolling in it, but Momma won’t let me be outside for very long today. She keeps telling me it’s too cold. I wish she would just let me finish rolling in the snow. Finchy won’t stay outside with me today. Momma said he’s the smart one today. I say, he has less fur than I do, but I don’t mind coming in, because Momma put our dog beds by the fireplace and that is nice to lay down on. It is so nice to be an inside dog now 🙂
