And something big is happening soon that I've been busy getting ready for. I'll fill you in later!!
I'm now swimming for 45 minutes with my people every other week. I had been swimming with them for 30 minutes but, a few swims ago, I got back into the pool after I got toweled off. My woman was able to get me into the "new" pool, same people but different location, for 45 minutes for the next swim. It's a smaller pool but the water is a little cooler which I like. I swam almost the entire 45 minutes with few breaks.
We liked it so much, we are going to be going there instead from now on. It's on our side of the river so we don't have to worry about trying to make it across and we don't have to drive through Portland. It's also only 30 minutes away instead of 45-55 minutes.
My people even cleaned up my man's old diving gear bag and that has our towels, my dummy, and my life jacket in it. I haven't worn it at all the last few swims but we bring it because the pool's life jackets choke me due to my mega-esophagus.
I had my annual check-up last week. The vet comes to my house so I don't get stressed by the waiting. She told my people not to let me lose too much more weight and said she wouldn't have guessed I have Discoid Lupus by looking at my nose! Everything was great but my people still have to try to get a pee sample (weirdos). The vet said good luck. As soon as I hear a change in the sound for getting a sample, I stop peeing and will hold it for hours. If they don't get a pee sample (not as weird as when they put my poop in a bag and drive it places), the vet will stab me in the belly with a needle!!!!!
I've also have been visiting friends and getting to know Freddy, the puppy that lives across the street. I'm teaching him good doggy manners.
