One of my bestest friends died last night.
Maury liked to play with me and chase squirrels with me. He liked to go for car rides too. He even got to ride in my car one day with me when I helped my woman move her car.
His people are going to need lots of Chance kisses and love.
My people bought me a new grill! Some people brought it to my house on Saturday. I really like it and so far I've grilled really thick rib steaks, hamburgers and really thick pork loin chops. Tonight I'm doing Guinness boiled sausages from the farmer's market. My woman saved 1 out for me so I can have some to snack on that hasn't boiled in beer. She says I can't have alcohol until I turn 21 so I have a little less than 14 years to wait!
My woman has started using a therapeutic grade essential oil blend with me for my arthritis. It is made by a veterinarian that has used essential oils in her vet practice for years and wrote a book on essential oils and animals.
My people say I don't seem to be as stiff when it gets cold and my woman has been noticing that when I go down the garage steps, I don't always skip my left rear leg over the last step now. Last night I jumped up onto our bed twice instead of waiting to get picked up and put on the bed.
Today I got a massage with a couple of drops of another oil blend for muscles and bones. I have been saying no to the smell but my woman has been putting it on herself and I've decided the smell is pretty nice now. And the smell has pretty much gone away now so I'm happy.
