My friend Reuben...

Meet my friend Reuben. He lives in Delmar, NY with his mom Judy, his brother Archie and the kitties Iris and Leo.

His mom sent us an e-mail in August 2008 telling us that she liked my blog. The next e-mail we got, she told us about Reuben not feeling well. He had a herniated disc and he had his back end paralyzed. He had surgery and we were hoping everything was going to be ok but to this day he still can't walk pretty well. His mom does everything in her hands to help him. And he is a fighter and tries and tries. I wish with all my heart that he improves soon. Would your please cross your paws for him?



Months ago, he and his mom sent me pawesome presents....


A ball where you put treats inside and you have to take them out. It was not easy but I did it!

An this thing with a big treat...


I have been licking it for several days and the treat is still almost intact! But I am going to get it... promise!
Thanks Judy and Reuben!

Have a nice day

Hi Lorenza - poor Rueben. I feel bad for him, but dogs are pretty good at making the best of things.

I was wondering... with the extremely hot weather where you live, do you have air conditioning in your house? I hope so!!!

Hi Lorenza, Reuben is lucky to have a friend like you. I will definitely keep my paws crossed for him and I'm sending him some doxie healing sun rays! I hope the weather is cooling off some and you get a long walk today. ~Twix
PS: sometimes when it is really hot here and I get too tired when walking, I just lay down and refuse to get up....hehehe!
