Psst – it’s me – it’s Lexi!
My mom calls me a M O N E Y P I T. I don’t know what that means, but if it means she is talking about me – then it’s a good thing!
Mom says I don’t need to tell you all about my poop, but poop is a F A S C I N A T I N G thing, especially if you are a dog! Mom says I have weird poop habits.
When I came to live here, my tummy was pretty upset and I had not so nice poops. That’s what my Mom says. She keeps wanting to pick it up and put it in a little bag. But she doesn’t keep that bag so I don’t know why she wants to pick it up! Anyway, when I first came, it wasn’t pretty so Mom took me to the vet.
The vet gave me probiotics and a new yummy dog food that was supposed to help my small intestine. It helped a bit but it didn’t really solve my problem. And when I went to the dog park, I would do three or four little poops. Mom says it was disgusting!
Once that little bag of dog food was almost done, Mom took me back to the vet – I love the vet and they know me all there! This time, the vet gave Mom a different kind of dog food – one with fiber that is supposed to help the large intestine. The vet laughed when he gave it to my Mom because he said you wouldn’t think that what I needed was fiber.
Mom says if I’m going to talk about the bag of dog food, I should mention how much it costs. It cost $80. Yep – EIGHTY DOLLARS for a bag of dog food.
But the vet was right. My poops are now nice! My Mom jumps up and down now whenever I have a poop because she says it is easy peasy to pick up!
Besides, all I have to do is flash my baby blues at my Mom and she whips her credit card out for anything I want! I LOVE my Mom – she’s the best.
I think people are all weird – a poop is a poop is a poop! At least to me. But I do like the fact that I can go to the dog park and my tummy isn’t upset so I’m not pooping everywhere. I don’t have time – I need to play!
I still have trouble pooping when I’m on my leash. I found a nice quiet spot in the backyard and I like to have my poop there. But there are times when I’m out with Mom and I can’t help it – I just have to poop. Well if you thought my Mom jumped up and down because I’m now having normal poops – she goes crazy when I poop when we are on a walk. She pets me, she calls my name – “Lexi – you are a good dog – oh Lexi – you are a good dog”. Sorry – it’s not enough to make me want to poop on the leash all the time.
Heck – we went for a long walk this morning and the first thing I did when we got back home, I went for a poop in my favourite corner!
Speaking of my backyard – I’m very good at guarding in (when I choose to stay in it!). Look at this picture of me as I stand on guard! There are bad things out there – squirrels and raccoons and they want to come in our yard and I won’t let them!
I’m exhausted and need a nap!
