Hi,haven't been on for awhile. Lucy is doing fine. I have heard that it takes us a year to recover from hip replacement. Lucy has done it in two months. She goes back for her last xray in the next couple of weeks to make sure everything is OK. She is running and playing with her brother. Life is Good!
Hi Chantal thankyou for your comment on my blog.Morgan had a tumor on his liver we noticed a lump took him to the vet and had exploratory surgery and the lump was so big it was to cruel to wake him up.He didn't suffer at all but it was a dreadful blow that has taken till now to not weep over losing him, even as I write this the emotion wells up I loved him more than words can say. kind regards Peter
Hi Chantal! The puppy has indeed arrived......and all the chaos that brings with it. We've called her Maisie - and she's a real sweetie, but with some spirit too. I'm sorry I haven't got round to putting up pics yet but I will as soon as possible now. It's been rather a testing few weeks - with various trips to the vets for both of them. Lottie woke us up early one morning to tell us she really wasn't feeling right...and she was right to do so - she had bloat and needed an emergency operation for GDV. The vet was marvellous and you can hardly even see the scar already. Then Maisie got ambushed at Puppy Playgroup and bashed her back leg.....much limping and soreness - so two rounds of xrays and consultations - and it would seem it is just a bad sprain but has been a bit of a worry in one so young.
I am sooo looking forward to a few months time when Maisie will be bigger and we can go for some wonderful long walks all together.
Hi Chantal, hard to know what the secret is with her long life but she is simply a great family pet to us. She is well pampered and has always had the best seat on the couch. She is certainly feeling the cold now and is sporting a checked jacket to keep her warmer as she sits close to the radiator. Love looking at the photos, remind me of when Pene was a hyperactive puppy (which of course lasted until she was 7yrs old!).
She is getting a monthly shot to help with the arthritis so hoping she is comfortable for the next while. Will try to post some photo's soon.
