MOMMY gave me the ONLY Airedale in the Village title. She didn't think it up -- of course, she got it from a BBC series "Little Britain." The original saying was... "I'm the ONLY Gay in the Village!" You have to watch the show to see the humor :)
Yes, this disease sucks !!! There is NO dignity... and I am one dignified kind of guy :) Yes, I lick myself, but... with the utmost dignity :) And...because I can :) Tonight, Joey (grrrr, my nemesis) had to carry me in the house. He is skinny, and probably doesn't weigh as much as me... but... HE carried me in... ugh --- THEN...as I was laying on a soft blanket, the torturer, decided to drag me to the back door -- on the blanket. Well, I showed him ... I didn't go out :) I will go out later with my MOMMY -- I hope. I am pretty tired today. My front legs are acting up!! UGH!! MOMMY read where it affects the tails on some dogs... well, I still wag my thumb-sized tail :) It is an awesome tail.
I agree with my MOMMY about not getting a wheelchair, and all of that other stuff. First, we live in a condo, and to get to the street there are steps, and... quite an incline. Welll, I can imagine being all hooked up to the chair... and Star (the interloper), giving it a little nudge -- and there I would gooooooo zooooooming down the hill without the benefit of a good butt-tuck-run. Diapers....no. I couldn't. I have always been potty trained. It would mortify me to go in the house -- even if I would be going in diapers. I can think of nothing that would even make the idea moderately attractive. Star -- well, sometimes she leaves a little stinky present for MOMMY. Star acts like it's the crown jewels or something. Sometimes she gets a guilty look on her face (Star, not MOMMY). Not often though... sometimes I think I can hear her giggling (Star, not MOMMY).
Of course I do not want to leave my MOMMY. I haven't fully trained her yet. Who will be there to wipe their soaking wet beard in her gentlemen (HA, very funny) caller's crotches?? Not Star, she is TOO polite!! I really wanted to get MOMMY married off -- before I go. Not sure if she wants that -- but, she could use a companion almost as smart, funny, handsome, wonderful ...( OK... you get my drift :) ) as me :) There are many dating sites out there -- Christian Mingles... "Let God find your match." Does God have to be associated with a dating site to find one's love match ?? Old people matches, Horse Lovers matches, J-Date, for the Jewish persuasion...and many others. Funny thing though.... people are totally intermingled on these sites!!! And... most have been on these sites for yeaaaars!! I propose someone invent an Airedale Terrier Lovers Dating site!!! Then I know MOMMY would find the right match for her !!! If I may add --- The Airedale Terrier Lover should also be very good looking, intelligent, funny....and RICH (hehehehe). In return, you will be getting an Airedale Terrier Lover, who is intelligent, funny, extremely beautiful (heheheh)...and not so wealthy... but hey, if you have the money...it's all good!! No humine man could ever replace me.... but, it's worth a try :)
Whatever MOMMY decides is OK with me. This disease is harder on her than it is on me. MOMMY would never admit it though. MOMMY has devoted the last month to me. Her disease ... Hashimoto's ... hehehe stupid name for a disease,,,has been forgotten for now. I hear her sniffling all of the time. When she lays down with me... my ear ends up soaked, and salty. I don't mind :) I know Star sneaks up to bed with MOMMY. I don't mind that either. MOMMY needs Star right now. I wish it could be me, but...it can't :( I am happy for every moment I have with MOMMY, as she is with me. For now, we are going to enjoy each other's company, and be as happy as we can :)
MOMMY loves and appreciates all of the comments and E-mails. She learned a new word today -- twice ... "Heart-Dog" .. yes, I am her heart-dog, and she is my heart-MOMMY :)
Thank you everybody :)
