Today I was excited to have a surprise visitor from Illinois show up during my lunch break. He is quite famous and has had a book written about him, but I haven't read the book yet. I love to have visitors and there is so much in this area to show those who haven't been here before. He spent the afternoon visiting with me at the Veterinary Hospital. We spent time getting to know one another.
His name is Stanley Lambchop and is called Flat Stanley by his friends. He is a friend of my granddaughter Kayleigh. His wonderfully colorful traveling clothes were chosen by Kayleigh, isn't she fancy! He started his travels at her school and will be spending a week here in California as my guest.
I will be sure to share his travels in California with Kayleigh's classmates. Then he will head out to visit someone in a new place. I hope someone fun will host him for the next visit.
Flat Stanley was very interested in looking at RADIOGRAPHS with me. This is a view of a dog pelvis and hips. Those little white spots are pellets, the poor dog got in the way of a pellet gun sometime in the past. The pellets are not causing the dog any pain now.
Flat Stanley was very thin and had spent days and days traveling to California. We took him out to dinner to the 'Back Forty' B-B-Q place. I thought that he would be very hungry, but he really didn't eat very much at all. He is very polite and a lot of fun to have around.
Thank you Kayleigh for allowing me to visit with your friend Flat Stanley. Love you, Nana
