I have a present!

I am so excited to finally be able to tell you about the present I got from Princess Coco's Mom. This is supposed to be a Christmas present but my package came all the way from California and traveled via sea for almost two months before it reached my country** I only got to open it in March.

As you can see I am overly excited here. Coco's Mom must have noticed me sleeping on our kitchen floor, so she sent me this nice, comfy bed. Actually, I love how the floor tile cools my belly, but my habit has taken a toll on my elbows which is now thickened with callouses.

Coco's Mom also sent us something that made the Secretary so happy: Washable urine proof pads! As most of you know, my disability requires me to wear diapers for the rest of my life. Once I had to stop wearing them for a while because I developed a nasty wound from my rashes. I was so guilty for giving my nanny so many soiled beddings and towels to wash. The Secretary scoured the department stores for these water proof pads but didnt find any.

I like this bed, is it obvious?

I have something soft to lie on when its time for me to shift positions.

Thank you very much, Coco's Mom!!!

Secretary's Note: Coco's Mom was very kind to deliver Scarlet's present to my best friend in California, who took care of shipping it to the Philippines via a "balikbayan box". This is a cheaper way of sending things to our country plus the recipient will not have to pay customs duties. Scarlet's wheelies were sent via UPS and Customs initially required us to pay Philippine Peso 7,000 ( which is my dog's food allowance for one month!) even though the wheelchair was only donated. It was a good thing that the Customs Collector was a nice guy who listened to my pleas.

  5. Wow Scarlet, that looks like a real comfie bed!! I love the big smile on your face. You're sure a happy pup. I guess you know how lucky you are to be living with the Secretary and Animal Doctor!

    That was so kind of Princess Coco to send the package so it wouldn't require duties. I would never have thought of such a thing


  6. Bless! What a lovely, thoughful gift! That's a very wise and caring friend you have there.

    Beautiful Scarlet - I don't think we've ever seen such a happy little lady who delights in her life so much. I think, you know, she understands how lucky she is to have found a home with people able to care for her.

    If ever Jasper gets a rash (usually a heat rash in the height of summer), I grow an Aloe Vera plant. I snip off part of a leaf, split and open it, and rub the pure Aloe Vera within into Jasper's sore bit. Works a treat!

    Big hugs to you all from England!
