Mystery Solved – Part II

I can’t look anything like an Anemic. That vet didn’t know what he was talking about. Have you seen pictures of Anemic puppies? Me neither. They must be really ugly if they don’t show the photos. I was a bit suspicious when I couldn’t find Anemics in my Bones N’ Crate book, Cute And Adorable Puppy Breeds, A-M. So, I checked my Bones N’ Crate Dictionary For Doggies. Under Anemic it said it wasn’t a breed, but a condition! I have a condition!? And it further stated it might be caused by an underlying disease! Man, I don’t want any underlying disease, so I immediately stopped lying under my dog house. How was I suppose to know lying under my dog house caused anemia? It said if it is severe I’ll need a blood transfusion. Yikes! Hopefully, this is reversible and not terminal. I just started lying under my dog house last week. I don’t want some other dog’s blood in me. Be my luck I’d come off the table with some weird ugly dog thing going on and an invite to the World’s Ugliest Dog competition. And if they don’t hit me with with the blood, then its packed red blood cells in the veins. Holy cow! This sounds really serious. And they recommend putting me in a cage to protect me from other animals. What other animals? I’m an only dog. I need a second opinion. This is making me nervous. I’m beginning to twitch. I keep telling myself it’s probably all in my mind. Is that my hair on the floor? My black spots are falling off!? It’s worse than I thought. Why are there humans in green scrubs rolling a stainless steel table my way? I’ve got to get out of here, but my legs are moving in sloooooow mooooootion. Woof-woof, woof,woof,woof, woof -woof.



I woke up. Where was I? I looked up. I was lying under the outside dining table.  I got out of there fast to the safety of my condo-crate. I just started dreaming lately, so it’s all sort of new to me. At least I hoped I was dreaming. I snuck a peek in the direction of the table looking  for my black spots. None on the deck. Still on my body. Whew!  I heard Mr. human telling the Mrs. the other day about my puppy dreams, woofing out loud and my legs and feet twitching. I thought he was kidding. He wasn’t kidding. The dream seemed so real too. It’s a bit unnerving this dream stuff. But I suppose I can always look forward to dreaming about being a delivery dog on a treat truck. I need to get  a Do Not Disturb sign for that one. Nevertheless, I was happy to hear I wasn’t an Anemic, but just a bit anemic. Nothing that some doggy-mins and iron pills can’t take care of according to the vet. Need to keep my eyes on that guy. Gives me nightmares.

Well, being a bit wired by the weird dream experience, I thought I would unwind with a bit of Words For Canines on my iPuppyPad. Steve Jobs made it so the pads on my paws can activate the touch screen. He always was a step ahead according to his Bones N’ Crate biography. It’s always nice to get back to something familiar and reassuring. I was playing a game with my human grandpa on Mrs. human’s side. He’s a geezer too. Come to think of it, a lot of my human’s friends are geezers as well. But at my age, just about everyone is a geezer. Anyway, even though he’ll deny it, I was ahead on points with grandpa. We sympathize with each other as he has a collar around his neck too. His is hard plastic and is just plain white. I wonder if grandma human attaches a lead to it to take him for walks? His doesn’t have a fancy name tag like mine. And his doesn’t light up at night either, with flashing options. But he does have a tube sock to make his more comfortable. I prefer something natural and furrier. Maybe I should send him a faux fur collar comforter.

Bones N’ Crate were out of stock in his size, on back order. I’ll have to check later with

Back to the game at hand. It was my turn to play. I looked at my letters and realized I had the perfect letters for my next move. Triple word score! Got 30 points for it too!
