She’s home!

Dizzy’s home – hooray! The operation went well and after a short walk she has slept all day on the sofa. After wolfing down a fine dinner of cooked liver and biscuits, she retired to the sofa to sleep off all that excitement. Many thanks to Zeno and others for the best wishes.

While I’m left wondering why a trip to the vets has me uttering silly, soppy baby talk to the dogs. Much as I love them both, they are dogs. I never refer to them as “the kids” or “my babies” {shudder} and although I do use pet names such as honey, babes, cariad and chickpea, I do the same with the humans in my life. So why oh why do I enter the consulting room and leave my brain at the door? I smile as the nurse tells Dizzy to say hello to “your mummy”, I sit on the floor and cuddle her, cooing sweet nothings in her ear… One of life’s little mysteries, eh?

Meanwhile the dreaded lurgy has returned, along with what seems to be the start of a cold so I’m going to sip some hot tea and think about another warm bath and an early night. A big apology to Graeme, I had planned a marathon linking session today to make up for the fact that he had to work but a quick peek tells me that he’s doing very nicely on that front. So I shall leave you in the capable hands of the blogroll and bid you goodnight.

    Glad to hear Dizzy’s ok. Our Joe made himself very unpopular on Christmas day by peeing on my in-laws carpet – 3 times! He’s never done it before, but I guess he’s a typical 3 year old Battersea boy..

    Happy New Year

    Oh poor Joe. Any pictures for us to admire? Um, of Joe, not the carpet…
