Monday 18th June 2012 – Almost the perfect day

If only Megan could have come it would have been the perfect day, well that and if Ari’s leg hadn’t hurt. The sun shone some of the time and we had such fun. This is Ari and me sharing an ice cream. As you can see I’m about to take a very large cold bite, while Ari politely licked round the edges. Poor Ari so wanted to take part, but try as my Mistress did, he wouldn’t walk on the grass all the time to make it easier on his legs. By the end of the walk he was limping and is now really suffering for it. He’s being very brave but he’s taking his pain killers and my Mistress has said he can’t ever come on a walk like that again. We can only take him for little walks, where he can’t end up walking on the path. He shed a little tear, but nodded in agreement. I want to get a little cart that we can pull with him in the back, but he loves running around so much that I don’t suppose he’d ever stay in it. It’s made my Mistress very sad to think he’ll never get to see all the exciting places. I’m sure we can find a way to do it. It’s a pity he’s too big for his rucksack that he had when he was a puppy. The one that my Mistress could carry him round in, but at 25kg I don’t suppose she’d manage it.

The good news is that the marmalade is very much ok and we are all enjoying eating it. I told Ari that a spoon of marmalade was the best thing he could have to make his legs better. I’m not sure he believed me at least it made him smile.

  1. Maybe you should check into a dog stroller, we see them a lot and the dogs seem to like them.

      Oh Roxy, what a good idea. I’ve found one but it’s out of stock. Maybe I could save up and buy it for his birthday. Thank you.

  2. Hi Guys,

    I’m with Roxy I think a Dog Stroller would be perfect – I think he’d just prefer if it wasn’t Pink 🙂

    Wags to all and a big hug for Ari,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂
