Rosy was peering into the Eglu watching one of the Hylines busy laying her egg .....
... this shot shows Rosy watching the hen running off at great speed just 30 seconds later :-)
Yin and Yang, or in this case Ginger and Mavis.
And poor Suky is not well at all :-(
She went to the vets yesterday for her annual booster. She went in a completely healthy dog and after the vet messing about with her knee repeatedly before she gave her the vaccination (she limps slightly after long walks as she has a loose kneecap, which we do know about and hence we don't overwalk her if at all possible), she came out obviously in pain with her leg and for the rest of the evening she was obviously very off colour and had the runs. This morning she has refused all food and is fast asleep in her bed. The vet is talking about an operation on her leg, but I think losing weight will do more to help the situation, and be much less traumatic and invasive for her. I have signed her up to 'Doggy Fat Club' at the vets, which will no doubt mean I get lectured about her food, but I'll trot off to the first one and see what they have to say.,
After reading various articles about vaccinations (see HERE for one) I think I am coming to the conclusion that we will not continue to vaccinate the dogs. They will of course continue with other treatments, flea and worm things, but no more yearly vaccinations for the time being. Seeing Suky so poorly and totally at our doing is not nice.
