Pepi& Mum On Sunday 13th September 2009
When Pepi went to his "Special Function" on Sunday, as The Guest of Honor, he rose to the occasion and was in his element !
The Nurses had given him a "secret" bath, so he was all clean and fluffy and smelling fresh.
He rode around in his Pram, dressed in his Board-Shorts, T-shirt and cap, with his dog-cell-phone (amazing everyone cause it actually rings !)
Then he did a costume change and re-appeared in his Dinner Suit.
Well, people couldn't believe it !
He was lifted up onto the stage, still in his Pram, and gave his "Speech".
We spoke of the joy of Adopting a Senior Pet, cat or dog, along with all the things they have to offer.
We also talked about many of Pepi's achievements, his Media career, his Twitter life, his Professional Photographic Shoots and his Newspaper Journalistic Interviews.
The crowds cheered each time more information was revealed about him.
He soaked it all up and loved every minute of it. He was handed a gift bag with a blue Leather Lead and Pet Spa gift Voucher.
He then happily posed for photos for the Official Photographer. He was in his element.
He then did another costume change back to his Board-Shorts and T-shirt and Cap, posed for the Official Photographer several more times and had a couple of hundred pats from well wishers.
With all his "jobs" done, I wheeled him over to a clump of shady trees and took everything off him, put him on the grass and let him be: a DOG.
He sniffed around and enjoyed himself: as a DOG.
We went back to the car, he rode on my knee & we both shared cake together. We both had a great day !!
He did all this with the Catheter in his still in his leg.
I did not want this time to end. This is when I wanted to stop the clock.
When Pepi went back into ICU, he barked all afternoon. Vets said "happy barks, he keeps telling us what a good time he had."
When Pepi was Hospitalized, I had no intention of attending this Function; however, the Vet's got together and insisted I go !!
I was so pleased they "bullied" me into still attending Pepi's Big Day. He and I together, both had a great time. Treasured memories !
