Pink eye and other miracles

Mother has accepted the fact that I can and will remove the silly blue fly bonnet at will. We have returned to the system where she places SWAT strategically to deter flies from troubling my face.

It's kind of a linebacker look:
Last year's photo... don't get excited that my mane has grown back. 

And of course, it's important to keep those flies away from my ears:

In a somewhat related vein, Mother has only pulled three or four burrs from me this entire summer. The aunts' burdock eradication plan really helped a lot, and with the rain we've had through the summer, I haven't had to forage in as many rough places to find grass to eat. By this time last year, Mother had been de-burring for weeks on end and finally chopped all my hair off.

Mother has also successfully killed two bomber flies on me this year, and I didn't even flinch! I've finally figured out that she really isn't trying to hurt me, although sometimes her whacking is a little overzealous, if you ask me.

Perhaps Mother will bring my camera up sometime this weekend. She claims she has to find the old one and something about a sanitary card or something? I have no idea what she is talking about.

How could she have lost my old camera so fast?


She thinks the thorough hosing after the "waterless" cleaning qualifies as a miracle, too, but guess what?
I'm still rubbing my tail.
