Sleeping in Seattle.

So there was a flower and garden convention in Seattle this weekend and my dad is a landscape designer and stuff, so we drove down there for it and I got to go because I'm awesome and they would miss me soooooo much if they left me at home. We stayed in the same hotel that we stayed in last time because they pretty much love me there, and they don't charge extra for me. So I slept in the hotel yesterday while my mom and and dad and grandma went to the convention which my mom said was totes boring and was just a bunch of people trying to sell overpriced gimmicky garden stuff.. Then we went out for pizza, and I had to stay in the car, but they brought me tons of pizza crust which almost made up for having to stay in the car. And today we went to Gasworks Park and I pooped there and made a little gas of my own. We also went to visit this giant troll who lives under a bridge and crushed a VW Beetle.
This is a picture I stole off the net because my grandma accidentally deleted all the pictures that she took and my mom was too lazy to bring her camera.

And this is a cell phone pic of me with the troll.

In other news, I have a new corneal ulcer that won't heal, but my mom has been doing a ton of research and she's pretty sure she found the problem and the cure. Turns out some dogs make too much of an enzyme in their tears and it inhibits healing. So to counteract that, you can make eye drops out of this injectable drug called Adequan which is used for arthritis. So my mom needs to go into work tomorrow and do some more research on this special vet forum thing so she can make me these eye drops which might make me heal! And if it works, she can make the drops every time I get an ulcer and then I won't have this problem anymore! Woot!

Hi Ike,
It's so cool that you got to go everywhere with your folks!! Sadly the hotels in this part of the world are not that receptive towards having doggie occupants.. it's their loss, I tell you!
Hope your mom finds that cure for your ulcer! That'd be fantastic, wouldn't it?

Mack said...

That is GREAT news about your mom finding a cure for your eyebally problem.

And I just love how you are sticking your tongue out at that mean troll guy!

I'm glad woo got to sleep in Seattle AND enjoy some of the native pizza bones!

Sorry 'bout the khorneal thingie but furry interesting what your mom found about treating/khombatting it!

Dang your Mom is super smart dude, I guess I will refrain from mailing her any poop until she can fix your eyeball.

Plants are pretty boring unless you get to pee on them but the pizza crusts sound good.

I'm sorry about your eye problem. I hope it doesn't hurt at all.
As for the pizza... way to get tons of crust. I love pizza crust. Yum.
Get well and keep us posted so we don't worry

Hi, Ike!
Sure it was great you could go there with your family!
That is huge troll!
I hope your Mom will be able to make those drops for you and you will be cured soon!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Nice job making gas at the gas works. I hope they appreciated it.

Hi Ike,
Thanks for choosing our brother Baily as the third place bad sport. Unfortunately, we have had to liten to him tell us all about what a weiner errr ummm winner he is. We're glad that you were there to judge and make the competition fun! Also, we hope your momma is able to get those drops mixed up for your eyes! That ulcer thing sounds like a big ouchy!
Bark at ya later,

We just saw this post and wanted you to know that our ma ape first used to live a mile from Gasworks Park and she would go running there and then later when she got Wally she lived a few blocks from that troll in Fremont. And also it kind of looks like her.

Your mom is way smarter than ours and is a good problem solver.
