Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

Today I am joining Brian's Thankful Thursday blog hop. He is recruiting blog hoppers fur this, so if you feel thankful, do consider going over there and joining. It's at Brian's Home.

I have a lot to be grrrreatful fur. Fur starters, I have a furever home with peeps who love me. They let me hog the computer and they give me treats. What dog wouldn't be thankful?

Pawever, I want to let you know about something I feel grrreatful fur today. It's my new fur cut and about something my groomer found that makes me feel better.

As some of you might remember, I had an appointment at Spa Dog yesterday. Spa Dog is a grrreat place in Vancouver fur dogs to get their furs cut. My groomer's name was Angela and she is gentle and good with dogs. 

While Angela was working on me, she found a matt behind one of my ears. It was small, but at the same time it was all twisted and pulling at the sensitive skin I have behind my ears.  When she removed it, she noticed that I had a bruise behind my ear and that the area around it was swollen.  They called it a Haematoma. 

Nobuddy realized it, but I had been going around with real pain from this and it would have become worse if Angela hadn't noticed.
It's a relief to have the problem fixed. Now I feel much better!

So today I am thankful that the pain behind my ear has gone away! I think we should break out the treats.

I took some selfies when I was at Spa Dog. They were pretty good "before"and "after" photos with Angela. The problem is thateven though I sent them from Mimi's phone to this computer, they still haven't arrived! I can't wait because I hafta get over to Victoria today. Sooo, BOL!! I am posting this instead:

I will post pics of my new furcut when I can! 

I am also thankful to my good furends, Jonathan, Lucy and their mom fur the Spa Dog gift certificates they gave me last Christmas. Thanks to them, my matts are all gone and I feel like a new dog!

Here is a photo of me, taken last December,  with Jonathan and Lucy:

See how nice they are to me?

Thank you Angela, Jonathan and Lucy (and their mom)!
