We Are Family.

This is Deputy Digby Pancake.  I want to say thank you everyone.  Thank you for all of your kind thoughts, your emails, your messages that Girl Person read to me every day.  It’s been a rough week or so for my pancake butt.  But what would I have done without my family?


I know I am loved.  Loved by more than a million family fans on Facebook. Loved by my Girl Person and Boy Person and Sheriff.  And I definitely knew that this week more than ever when my lumps were getting checked out. Let me state for the record, I appreciate it.

We are family
Get up everybody and sing

You know as Deputy that nothing gets me down, not even with all the vet person visits of last week. The persons took me to get something called a chiropractic adjustment to help my achey bones, a massage, and something a little crazy looking that send magnetic waves to my achey parts too called a Magnetosphere to get my immune system jumpstarted. Yes, so I know I am loved. And the persons’ wallet show how much I was loved too…the pancake fund is running low.


Now, as I said, nothing gets me down.  Not even the news that my liver has a few issues from the bloodworm they did.  But I don’t want my family to worry, because we will figure this all out together.  But.  I am not thrilled at the news that I have to lose a few pounds.  Girl Person told me not to panic, that pancakes would not be removed from the menu totally, but that we would be making them a little smaller…for now.  Maybe a little less syrup too.


I guess when furkids get older, we gain a few pounds, get a few more lumps, and have to go to the vet person a little more often.  Girl Person says that they will do whatever it takes to keep our family together forever, even if that means smaller pancakes.  I get her point, and let’s see what we can find out this week to make everything all better.  Sheriff Brickle is even being nice to me and sharing his bed.  The Sheriff being nice?  That is a bit scary to me!



I also want you to know that the persons told us that me and the Sheriff mean more to them than finishing this Adventure Of A Lifetime on May 2nd as planned.  If it is a week or two behind schedule, that is just the way it is going to have to be.  We know our family will understand and we have taken your suggestions to heart.  14 more states to go, but this will be on our healthy schedule, and we are aiming to head out of this Florida place again on January 20th.  Sound good?

Living life is fun and we’ve just begun
To get our share of this world’s delights
High, high hopes we have for the future
And our goal’s in sight
We, no we don’t get depressed
Here’s what we call our golden rule
Have faith in you and the things you do
You won’t go wrong, oh-no

So let’s see what else we find out this week, our plans, and not forget that every day is a day to be appreciated!  Whether it’s a good nap, a good day in the sunshiney, a snow day, seeing your family or just a good pancake, life is good.  The good far outweighs the bad any day when you add it all up.  Just ask my pancake butt.

    One of my Cocker Spaniels had liver problems, and she took twice daily doses of Milk Thistle, along with some veterinary liver medication, plus alternative therapies like chiropractic and accupuncture therapy. She lived 6 more years with all these therapies! 🙂 Accupuncture can do wonders for your aches and pains, too, Deputy Digby. Prayers and love are going out to you, dear boy! 🙂

    Take all the time you need! If you need to stay in Florida longer to make sure Deputy Digby Pancake is road ready you should. After all, it might be difficult for Sheriff Brickle to arrest all of you! The road will be there waiting for you. Take good care of each other.

  4. Glad ur all well and happy. I’m sure none of us care about the delay of your adventure, as long as you’re all ok. And I’m sure everyone would be more than happy to contribute to Digbys vets bills. You give us all so much pleasure. If u wanted to set up a Go Fund Me account.

    Digby, family is everything. That all the time you need to be healthy. Do whatever y’all need to do before you go back on the road, no one will mind if your adventure is delayed. You and family is more important. Glad the pancakes are not totally off the menu too. Love y’all!
