Happy Birthday Baileys!

This is a belated post. We went to Bailey's 2nd Birthday Pawty at Pawtebellos on Friday evening. And boy was my M glad that she brought me along (she was hesitating whether to bring me) because I had a wonderful appetite that night. Unfortunately, my appetite only came back for that night, and it was lost again over the weekend.

Everyone could see that I have lost weight. See my skinny head now? It looks almost pointed now.

And this is me during my bath. See my waist?

Anyway, back to the pawty.

The food there was quite yummy, that all the dogs were begging! Even me, I managed to beg a little that night.

Begging Scuba

Begging Jack & Joey

Begging Helios

My M forgot to take a picture of me begging because she was so happy that I was finally begging that she just sat there and admired the scene. But she did take pictures of us eating. We had a muttloaf and a fish with cheese.

After all the excitement (food) was over, I found a spot to rest. And I chose to lie down right in the middle of the pawty. You can see all the legs and paws around me.

And my evil M, still had to do a funny things on head series even when I'm such a sick boy. Talk about pouring salt into my wound!

Anyway, an update about my condition. The vet called to say that they weren't able to cultivate any bacteria from my lung sample, so this could mean that the previous week of antibiotic injections have killed most of the bacteria. But recovery may take some time. My M heard from another vet that a dog he treated the last time for pneumonia took 2 months to recover!

I'll be back for my review tomorrow, so we'll see if I have made any improvement.

Oh Herbie, you are getting thiner. You need to eat more! If it's the delicious hooman food that makes you wanna eat, then why not ask your your M to cook you delicious hooman food everyday? I mean like stewed pork, scramble eggs, etc. Yum! I bet the pawty was great fun. If I was there, I'll help make your appetite come back.

Love licks,

Hi Herbie,
Oh noooo.. you really have lost a lot of weight since we last met!! Don't worry, I am sure you build up your appetite once you get better.. Do try to eat more ok?
