My name is Blackie,and I'm almost 8 years old.
They say I'm a Pomeranian/Pekingese mix,but I look like a Pom.I went
to live with Mom and Dad just before Christmas when I was 7 years old.
Mom says I was the best Christmas present she could have ever gotten!
I love cookies and treats,but the doctor said I have to lose weight.
I'm constantly asking Mom and Dad for treats,but they only
give me diet snacks now that I have diabetes.At night when they go
I go down in the basement and work on a robot I'm inventing that feeds
treats 24 hours a day,pets me whenever I want and even picks up my
I hope to be famous some day.I was really thirsty and going out a lot
and my folks
took me to the doctor.I found out I'm a diabetic doggie.I take
insulin injections twice a day,which isn't so bad because that means
I can eat twice a day,plus cookie treats when my folks allow.I'm a
very happy boy and was so glad they adopted me.
