I have been really sick and I didn't even get to celebrate my real birthday but I have decided to celebrate in October when I first met Mum. She was so worried about me, I could tell. Those little ticks are just horrible. I didn't have to have injections. Our Vet (that is a Doctor for dogs) said Mum had taken really good care of me and I had to just rest. I really found it hard to walk a lot of the time. I'm all better now and Mum checks me all the time - which feels like a great pat anyway, so I love it. Now for some good news, a kookaburra is making a nest in our paddock and baby parrots are sitting in a tree just at the backdoor. They are beautiful but very noisy. They keep yelling at their mothers to feed them. It is Spring time here in Australia and everything looks fresh and new - just like me. Thanks for caring about me.
