The Bandage

This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Sometimes you have to tell others something because you care about them. I know you care about me. And you’re going to see me with a bandage on for a little while. So I wanted to be the one to tell you myself.

When you get to be almost 13 years old, and the persons consider you an older gentleman, you get lumps and bumps.

One of my bumps is on my face. My handsome. And it’s getting bigger. Even though the persons have had it tested, it is not going away. And now it is affecting how I move and how I feel.

I like to be outside a lot and doing things. And this bump is making that difficult. Now we are waiting to see who can help me the best. The persons tell me that they will do anything for me. Even if it making the hard decision to have the bump removed. They said it can’t keep growing and hurting me. And it is very uncomfortable. Even though i try to be strong about it.

Decisions are very hard when it comes to making ones for others. If I could talk out loud so that persons could understand, I would tell them that I trust them and I trust their intentions. I would tell them that I want to be here as long as I can. I would tell them to do what we have to do. Because doing nothing is actually doing something. And let’s get this taken care of.

Not all of the right decisions are obvious. Sometimes there are ifs and when’s and what if’s and all that stuff. We can only do our best with the information we have.

If anyone can make a bandage look good, it’s me. I don’t care about the looks or comments that others keep making to me. Like I’m too old to care. Or too old to matter. Old persons have to deal with that too. And it’s not fair.

The will to be better and live better and enjoy our time is important to us. Never underestimate the healing powers of love on wounds on the inside and the outside.

Peanut Butter Brickle

The first dog showcased by the Live Like Digby Adoption Fund is going to steal your heart! Zeus is an 8 year old Terrier Mix. He came to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay as an owner surrender because they were having a baby and didn’t feel like they could continue to give him the attention that he deserved.

He does not really like other animals so we do not recommend a home with other pets. Other than that, he is pretty aloof and stoic…just needs the perfect home.
All of Zeus’ adoption fees are paid by the Live Like Digby Adoption Fund made possible by 4-Legger and your donations. Let’s find Zeus a home in honor of Digby! Interested? Contact The Humane Society Of Tampa Bay in Tampa, Florida.
You can make a donation to this fund where all donations are matched at
