Here's a magnum quilt that Mom made for her brother David. It was top secret for a while, so we couldn't post this photo.
But now he has received it, so we can also show that it was indeed Frito-approved.
And who wouldn't want that stamp of approval ;-)

Guess what today is? My parents left on vacation, and so did I. They are off to Hawaii (24-hours of travel to an island state is not a good prescription for a doggie). And I'm off to my new dog sitters, the Beuttlers. When my parents dropped me off this morning, I made myself right at home. They are great people. Pretty cool I get my very own vacation, donchathink?
So anyways, about this other splash -- in the water!
Yesterday was a beautiful day, and we took a nice long walk (and I was getting hot). So when I didn't just jump in the pond on my own, I received a little, er, assistance from Alpha.
I don't mind. I really like the water. Cools me right off and gives me more spunk in the trunk!
But you can see in this photo, my hair is getting pretty thin. Hey, who knew dog's had to worry about male pattern baldness.
Hopefully the medicine I get from Dr. Essig will be able to get back some of my hair. Won't be too bad in the summer, but next winter ... brrrrr.

See, it kinda goes like this. I've been losing my hair, so my parents took me to the vet to see what's what.
Dr. Essig had to take some blood for tests, hence the yellow bandage. Pretty cool color match, eh?
So they think I have this condition where I'm getting too much cortisol into my system. It's like being stressed out.
Dr. Essig will do a more in-depth test when my parents return from vacation. And if so, there is a pretty straightforward treatment (just a small pill a day) that should be able to help.
I'm glad Mom worried enough to take me in to see the vet. She's always looking out for me, donchaknow.

Ohmigosh. Where have I been? More importantly, where has Alpha been?
Oh never mind, that's water over the bridge. Or under the dam. Whatever.
Here I am.
I'm back now ;-)
(And you can check out the previously missing posts too -- am I there for you or what!)

Wow -- will you look at that mole hill.
They must grow 'em big here in Böblingen, Germany.
Well, I showed him who's boss. I just pee'd on his hill.
Don't mess with me, Jack. Or whatever your beady-eyed name is ;-)
No, we didn't get a shot of him up close. Those buggers stay underground.
Alpha says this shot is from Wikipedia, whatever that is.
Oh, and he says Wiki notes that moles are a protected species in Germany.
Now that's a bummer for me ;-)
