Small Dog has asked me to thank everyone who's sent her 'Get Well Soon' cards, e-cards and emails.
She is still distinctly under the weather and has barely moved from her basket all day. She can just about stagger for a few steps before her back legs buckle beneath her.
Getting her to take her painkillers and antibiotics has been something of a challenge. We've tried concealing them in pieces of liver sausage, chicken, even ice cream which she would normally devour, but she will hardly eat or drink anything. She did finally succumb to licking a small amount of New York cheesecake which had her antibiotic cunningly secreted inside so we're hoping that will work again when her next dose is due.
If she moves in her sleep she squeals in pain, so she's quickly learnt to keep very still. So still that PP and I have been checking to see she's still breathing! We've been trying to encourage her to walk around from time to time but she just makes a beeline for her basket so she's definitely not feeling great and not her usual bouncy self.
I'm off up to London to go to KDF tomorrow so PP will be on nursing duty over the weekend and has promised me lots of bulletins on Small Dog's continuing convalescence. I really hope she's up and about and more like normal very soon......
