The English (Springer Spaniel) Patient

Poor old Harry.

He had his fatty lump removed this afternoon - no not his head, but the one on his chest, and now he is just standing and whining with a pitiful expression on his face.

I rang the vet on call and he advised a crushed paracetamol, but as yet he's not ready to lie down and rest.

I can't see myself having a great deal of sleep tonight, Florence Nightingale remarked-

I shall keep you all posted - hopefully another 24 hours he will be take to his bouncy self!

Look away now if you are at all squeamish.

Saturday update: Patient is much improved, has even looked for cats out of the window. Managed to force down a Cadbury's chocolate finger.

    even his tail looks droopy :(

    Get well soon Harry, with love from the cat lady - and her cats

  2. Harry thanks you kindly for your best wishes.
    Didn't want to mention the c-a-t word as we have to keep him quiet......

  3. poor little glad to hear that H is on the mend...i'm sure he's getting tlc in gigantic doses! x

  4. He's not quite firing on all cylinders but it won't be long - however he's now on antibiotics as he has a bit of inflammation, but as he loves tablets he doesn't see this as a problem.
