Meeting Dorian!

Ready for a walkie....
Waiting for a walkie....
Meet Dorian!
Hi, Dorian!
Ahem... ahem....

Playing with my mom before going to sleep
Today, for the first time in my "whole life" I saw a doggie walking on the street! Can you believe that?? I was very excited to meet him. His name is Dorian. He is a 2 year old Bassett Hound and is very friendly. His owner told us that he normally doesn't have time to take him out for walkies but he tries to do it at least once a week (?). While we were there sniffing each other all the dogs in our block were barking and barking at us. I think they were jealous because we were out and they were behind their gates!
Dr. Rodriguez called my mom to tell her about my thyroid test results. He was very happy because it seems like my thyroid is working well. He told my mom to give me the med for 2 more weeks, stop it for a month and then he will take another blood sample to check how it goes.
Later, before going to sleep I had a good time playing with my mom and my squeakie steak. The only problem is that she gets tired pretty soon. After an hour she said "enough"! And that was the end of my day!
Have a good night

Randi said...

Hi Lorenza...what a nice pup Dorian is...that's odd that you've never met another pup..your neighbors should all get dogs & then you could have lots of amigos..

I have a squeeky steak just like that..I love watching you run & your ears bounce all around..

You are the cutest Lorenza!

Love & Licks,

Hi Lorenza
You did it to me again .. I was trying to find your squeaky toy in the compooter !!!
Dorian looks a lovely boy. It's a shame his owner only walks him once a week.
We're very pleased your thyroid problem is under control.
Love from Hammer

Lenny said...

An exciting walk for you, Lorenza! That is great news about your thyroid and I'm very happy for you.

Your friend, Lenny

Katie said...

Hopefully, you will get to meet Dorian again sometime. That would be pawsome.

Good news from the Dr. We will keep our paws crossed!

Lady Kaos said...

So since your tests are good, does that mean you gets lots of treats? I remember when my steak used to squeak like that. I got a little overly excited with it a few times and there's a big hole in the end. It still works great for playing fetch though.

Chinook said...

i seldom get to see other dogs on the streets too! it's good to hear that you had 'good results'! you can probably have more treats soon! =)

lotsa licks,

Clover said...

Hi Lorenza! I am so glad you finally got to meet a friend in the street!
Good news about your thyroid!
Love Clover xo

So glad you're tests came back good!
Looks like you made a new friend there. I would never be that fresh when meeting a young lady!
You are so cute in action! Loved the video.
Bye cutie,

Isis said...

oh lorenza, what a nice friend you made! Maybe you guys can go for walkies together!

I'm sure those other doggies were sooo jealous, not just of you being out on the street, but of your nice sweater, and of course, you must be the most beautiful girl in town!

4xBs said...

Reina said...

Dorian is a good looking basset hound and you look really sweet with your red top!



How exciting to meet Dorian. He sure is cute and it looks like you two had a great time playing.

Love your playing with your Mommy video.

Love ya.....Mona

Koobuss said...

She gets tired of playing after only an hour? Wow!!

I'm glad that your thyroid tests came back good. That's wonderful news.

Your new friend is real cute. Poor guy, he only gets one walk a week. That's got to be hard on him.

Some time ago Lorenza I mailed you a Christmas card. We got in back in the mail today marked "Insufficient Postage". I'll take it back to the post office and mail it again. I hope you get your Christmas card before Valentine's Day.

Speaking of Valentine's Day, don't forget our ski party!!

Glad you like the award. You deserve it!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Mango said...

Lorenza Darlin' I've never seen a doggie that looks like you, but I'm open to new adventures!


The Zoo Crew said...

Ohhh, how fun! We love to meet other doggies on our walks. Of course, I act like I'm big and tough :)

Peace + Paws,

We are very happy!! Por los buenos resultados de la prueba del tiroides...
Oh.. el basset es muy bonito también, pero sale muy poco a pasear. Nosotros salimos 4 veces al día y si no nos saca el jefe lo sacamos nosotros a él, jeje. Gracias por el award...

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Lorenza,
Cute video, you sure like your chop don't you?? We're glad you got to meet another doggie. Too bad the other dogs don't get walkies though.
What thyroid med did the doctor put you on? Mama is curious why he is going to stop it after 2 more weeks. We need to take our thyroid med for the rest of our lives. We must have our blood levels checked every 6 months in case the dose would need to be changed as we get older. Hope you have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Charlie said...

Hi Lorenza! My mom gets tired pretty quick too. Sometimes she won't even play Chase Charlie for a whole hour. Playing longer with us would help keep our moms in shape, though, don't you agree?

Very glad to hear about your good thyroid results!

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Hi Lorenza,
Its great meeting doggies on a walk hey. Dorian looks nice- don't know if we could survive with only one walk a week though.
Glad to hear that your thyroid is getting better and we hope it continues this way.

WooHoOoo, Lorenza!!

Very cool you got to meet Mr. Dorian. I can't believe this was the FIRST time you had ever met another dog on the street! Maybe this will start a new & exciting trend.

It's fun to watch you play fetch with your mama. At the end you were getting kind of saucy, weren't you, trying to play keep away from her? I could tell what you were doing.

Goober love & smooches,

Agatha and Archie said...
