I'm a Chocolate Labrador Retriever.
How often have you read a blog by a dog? A real dog, I mean. Not a person pretending he or she is a dog.
My story is true. I can barely remember it, but when I began writing my story I was 9.78 years old. That's a pretty exact age but I know thiw was accurate. You see, my mom drove me to the emergency room of the animal hospital in Roxbury MA after I had dug my way under our fence one Spring morning and was soon hit by a car. At the animal medical center, they calculated my age - to two decimal places!
Although I was injured and in the critical care unit of a hospital, I really made lots of friends there, and I had a good time, and this is where my story begins!
Do dogs look both ways when the cross the street? Aren't they sad when they're in the animal hospital? Why is his tail wagging? I want to pet Joey; can I pet him? These are some of the questions that children have asked me or my parents since I was hit by the car.
I have heard the expression, "Dog is man's best friend" and from my point of view, man is a dog's best friend. So my website is dedicated to our friendship - and to our owners, our doctors (whom you call veterinarians), to the children who love and care for us, and the mail carriers who leave us treats every day, and the Animal Control policemen who bring us back home after we've escaped.
Since I was hit by the car, I've put together a dog's perspective on how to care for a dog who'se been hit by a car or a dog that's been wounded or injured. I didn't know what "recuperation" or "renewal" were before this all happened. I still don't. I just live my life as my life presents itself to me. I do what I can, and I do what I must.
But I wrote this story of trauma, recuperation and renewal. It's amazing to think how little time it took for the "trauma" part, and how long it took for the "recuperation" and the "renewal" parts.

about MY BLOG!
You can read my blog like a book, beginning with Chapter One, then Chapter Two and on and on. Or you can just wanted around, like I was doing the day I got myself into trouble!
about YOUR COMMENTS!
Your comments are very important to me. You can write about my website, about my blog, about me, about your dog, about your cat, about your neighbor's cat, about your neighbor. You can write about the street or the city or the country where you live because there are probably dogs there too! I doubt it, but it might help expand my vocabulary. Bottom line, just write!
