Hi Everyone, Rocky Dodge here. I guess the aches and pains come with being a Rock Star. The doctor visit went ok at the Hope Center in Vienna Virgina. (I thought it was a gooood sign that the name of the place is "Hope" - since Mati's middle name is Hope too)! First a nice person 'Laura' helped check me out. She was nice. Then, the Doctor came in. She was a nice doctor who said she had GSD's at home. And she had a unique accent - that oddly enough made me feel at ease. Hmmm, I wonder what das accent was? Well, anywho, she was a really nice Doctor and Dad liked her too. This Wed night we have a 3rd appointment with yet another specialist. We still have to keep our paws crossed.
Oh, and Thank you to everyone for their kind thoughts and posts from last week.
Dad took this picture of me a few minutes ago. He needed help painting so I was standing by - ready to serve.
Then Dad noticed something interesting. Since my hips hurt, Dad has been feeding me on the floor - I lay down and he puts the bowl between my front paws. And Mati eats right along side. But here are the results:
Here's My Dish:
And here is Mati's Dish:
Dad starting to mix in his food with "our" food. I wonder if he ever tasted "our" food? I don't have to wonder why Mati won't eat "our" food. She takes out most pieces and licks off the good stuff and leaves the rest behind. I only eat it because Dad asks me to finish eating... otherwise, I would leave some behind in the bowl too.
Then Dad went into the room he was getting ready to paint - and asked Mati to go finish eating. This is what she said to him:
She wouldn't budge. Well, except for sticking her tongue out at Dad.
