Being Brave

This is Peanut Butter Brickle. My persons tell me all of the time that I do a good job. I climb the stairs to the RV and they say good job. I finish a hike, and they say good job. I jump on the couch, and they say good job.

I suppose that even if I wasn’t successful at all of these things that they would still tell me good job. Because I tried. But being brave, like I have to be today, is hard. I have no choice but to be brave as I go to another vet person to get a second opinion.

I don’t know if you can say good job when you’re brave. But I still want to hear it. Because today is hard before I even get to the vet. The anticipation and the unknown is what bothers me. Whatever I need to do in order to get better, I want to do. I’m the one who has to go thru it. But the persons have to make the decisions. And that’s brave too.

Just a few weeks ago, everything was going as planned to get to that Italy place. We were getting ready to get on the boat. And although Italy and our house will wait for us, it was still disappointing.

But when things get hard, I get brave. When I get brave, I get determined. Today is yet another step. That will eventually lead to everything working out. If we don’t give up.

Yesterday, when we we were feeling very low, there was a knock on Gandma’s door. And what was there? A food delivery for us!

For me and Fruity!

Spaghetti and meatballs! Can you imagine?

Someone cared for us enough to brighten our day. And at that moment, I had all the more reason to be brave.

The strength to make it thru today.

Our appointment is late in the afternoon. But we will tell you news as soon as we know. So. Be brave for me.

    What a lovely Italian dinner you all had! We are all waiting and hoping for the best news for you today Brickle. You are a brave strong boy. You made it last year thru your surgery. I know that no surgery is pleasant. Been thru it many times myself and with my furbabies over the years. It is scary, but you will be ok Brickle! You just have to be ok! You are so loved by so many! Please let us know what the doctor says today as soon as you can. So relieved you are getting a second opinion from the doctor that did your surgery last year!

    Aww Brickle I hope you and Fruitycake enjoyed your delicious dinner. It looked so good. Yes anticipating censure stress you out. Crystal met her new vet yesterday she was alittle stubborn she wouldn’t pee in the tray for them. I went with her as soon as her paws hit the grass she went. Just wanted her momma there. The tech was able to get the tray in and out before Crystal turned around teamwork… they did blood work too so now we wait. Hopefully you all get the answers you all need and a treatment plan…. we ❤️ and 🙏 for you sweet boy. Enjoy your dinner and take a walk with Fruitycake it helps to relax you and GP.❤️
