Going Away Party!

So yesterday Auntie Kathryn and Uncle Ansel hosted a going away party for me. They invited all my parents friends and it was a super awesome time because I'm starting to battle my anxiety. Dr. Seth who is pretty much my favorite Dr. ever was there and last week he prescribed Xanax for me to make me feel better in social situations because I totally like people and totally want to be with them, but then I get really scared and run away. So now, with Xanax, I go up to them and they give me tons of love and I am really happy. It totally doesn't zonk me out or anything. Now I know people don't always agree with medicating, but it's really the best thing for my quality of life because it's no way to live to be scared in social situations when all I really want is to hang out and have to be left at home in a kennel being anxious there.
Anyhowl - I had a super fun time and got to chill with all of my best friends like Anne and Holly and Jimmy and I got to see Jen and Jeff and their kids and hang out with Mike and Michelle and all the other cool people who I'm forgetting.
And I want to tell you about my new best friend - her name is Nuala which is a really pretty name and she is Seth's wife. We pretty much cuddled all night long and she has a Boston terrier named Ruby but I'm not allowed to hang out with her because I do things to her that are inappropriate if you know what I mean - don't tell Martha.
And this is a picture of my vet, Seth and Nuala and me. I'm not trying to get away I'm just irked by all the picture taking.


And this is a pic of me and Bobby and my mom. My eyes are dilated from the meds so it was really hard to fix the red eye without looking weird so my mom left it.

Great party. No worries about your meds. Whatever makes you happy, right? Plus it is always good to share because maybe there is another doggie who would benefit as well.

TaiChi is on tons of meds that work for her, and no one judges her, so I don't see why anyone would judge you if they work for you. We certainly don't!

And I LOVE that last picture!

What a nice party you had. My Mommy gives me something called valium when I have to go for haircuts or go to the vet. I understand and I am glad it works for you.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

It was very nice of them to have a party just for you buddy! I am glad that you had some anxiety relief. My Dad has to take that xanax stuff when he and Mom travel so he doesn't go bananas in the plane. I gotta see if his eyes do that too.

What a great party!! Don't worry about the meds. If that's what works for you, then that's what you do!!! I'm sure they'll help you deal with the move.
