Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

And the winner is…


Katie here! Mama says lots of you are anxiously awaiting my test results so I figure I should let you all know that the Vet called today. She was very very happy.

What did the vet lady say, mama?

She said while my numbers aren’t perfect, they hadn’t gotten any worse than when the blood tests were done in late February. She said I was stable and doing really well.

Well, I could have told you that!

Time to go celebrate mama! I have parks that need inspections!

I’ve been feeling my oats lately, and telling mama and daddy off if they are the least bit late for any of my six meals a day. And don’t let them even think about forgetting my bacon at 8 p.m!!*

So anyway, the vet lady said I didn’t have to go back for 3 whole months! Wow! No scary car rides, no needle sticks, no smelly offices for, well, like almost two years if we’re counting in dog math.

But on the other hand they give me treats at the vet’s office and mama doesn’t do that anymore.

Don’t call me late for dinner!

So maybe I should fake an illness….

Talk later, my dinner #2 is due in approximately 11 minutes and I need to keep a close eye on my serfs.

Chop, chop! Let’s get moving people!!

*Mama note: She gets a liquid med at 8 p.m. that tastes like bacon so we just told her it was a treat. So far she’s buying that.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  2. Wonderful, wonderful news, Katie! Enjoy that bacon. 😉


    • She loves that med. We were worried that the vet might take her off of it and then what would we do at 8 p.m.? But the vet says stay the course, so Katie gets to have her 8 p.m. “treat.”


  3. Katie–you are so funny! Chop, chop, indeed! Getting close to bacon time! Great news, little Princess.


  4. Sweet Katie, that is wonderful news! Yes, keep after your servants…I mean mama and daddy to make sure that your meals are on time! Such good news warrants extra visits to oversee your kingdom of parks. Not having to go back to the vet for 3 months means that you and mama will have extra time for fun! Sending you a big hug, sweet Princess!! 💕


    • We hope to get out to see more of them as soon as it gets less snowy and rainy and damp and cold. Well….she LIKES cold…so maybe we won’t wait for it to warm up too much.

  13. Love this post! So happy to hear good news about the Princess! 🙂


    • We are very happy too. Yesterday she and I took a long walk at one of her parks, up and down hills and she was prancing much of the way. Of course it was 38, cold for me, perfect for her.
