Goodness, Pink Baby just jumped right up and wrapped herself around me! She is such a cuddle pup!
No update on my leg today but we will be patient and wait for Dr. B to call us. Thank you all for your good wishes and prayers.
Good night, Love, Dozer Edwards
Pink Baby went over the rules for having her stay with us. Just one week - how can we show her everything Oregon in just one week? Well, we will do our best and then she will be off on another adventure.
Oh, this is me after I put Pink Baby in my mouth and ran into the living room with her. First, I am not supposed to be running and second, I am not supposed to be trying to de-stuff Pink Baby. Sorry, I got a little carried away. It won't happen again.
Tonight Mum said we will review some Oregon history with Pink Baby and have some play time - quiet play time but play time nonetheless!

I was ushered into one of the private rooms (Mum says all the rooms are private but I think they have a special one for important dogs like me).
"What? What do you mean there is a limit to how much cheese-in-a-can I can have? Who cares if it gives me the farties? That's fine by me, I don't care!"
We hung out with the most able technician who was very free with the “cheese-in-can”. My heart is just fine and my temperature was normal. Then Dr. B finally arrived. I love Dr. B. and she feels the same about moi. She checked out my knees, comparing the two against one another and determined neither of them was in great shape. I put on my most pathetic look for her and I believe she succumbed to my charms once again.
Then I was off to the x-ray department (Mum says it is just a room and not a “department”…. whatever!) and they took magical pictures of my knees and hips. Dr. B and I came back to my private room and looked at the magical pictures with Mum. I take remarkable x-rays and need to talk to Mum about using them for our annual Christmas card.
"Isn't Dr. B just beautiful? See how gentle she is with me? She loves me and I love her. Actually I like her massage technique best and her opposable thumb that let's the cheese-in-a-can out!"
The decision is that Dr. B is going to have an orthopedic surgeon look at the x-rays and then my “films” go to the Oregon State University Veterinary School to see what they suggest. We should know in a couple of days what needs to be done. My left knee that had surgery last year has a giganormous amount of arthritis so Dr. B isn’t sure the same surgery on the right knee is such a hot idea. The right knee is not as “loose” as the left but I am not sure if that is good or bad. Mum says not to worry about it, that is what Dr. B is there for.
"This was a pawtastic couple of hours but now I am ready for my pain meds and a nap. Time to let go of me ladies, I've got more hearts to break and need to keep movin' down the Road of Love."
I am home now and Mum has been to my favorite pet store, Animal Crackers, and gotten us Frosty Paws for dessert tonight. And we get to unwrap Pink baby too!
More news as it breaks (the news, not my knees!)

They are 6-year-old Anacortes, a 47-pound female American Eskimo lab mix; 3-year-old Cedonia, a 34-pound female husky mix; 7-year-old Tacoma, a 92-pound male lab mix; and Everett, a 4-year-old, 47-pound, male Austrian Shepard lab mix.She said the shelter has been boarding the dogs since the accident as a niece of the Kelmses searches for a home. Deets said the dogs have an unusually close bond and tend to hang out together in the shelter.According to a letter posted on the shelter's Web site by Kim Mayer, the Kelms' niece, the dogs were adopted over the past seven years."Their dogs were the only children they ever had,'' Mayer wrote.Deets said she understands it will be difficult finding homes for all four dogs, and said they have had inquires from neighbors and friends of the Kelms."To adopt two dogs together is a huge challenge ... four could be impossible,'' said Deets.But she said the dogs are very well-mannered and show signs that they were well taken care of by the owners. "The dogs are super sweet.'' The dogs, all rescued from area shelters, are spayed and neutered and are up to date on vaccines.-- Carlos Sadovi
Oh look! Another handsome portrait of me. I do look rather nice on the duvet don't I?

Frozen treats from Animal Crackers in Corvallis, Oregon with small biscuit treats artfully arranged into smiley faces were prepared for each attendee. Dottie found her frozen yogurt treat to be quite satisfying although she did get an ice cream headache.
"Is there a second course?" she asked.
