I’m pleased to say that Alfie seems to be through the worst. There was a horrible moment when he started dripping blood from his mouth and Mum started to panic and rang the vet. Thankfully our lovely vet explained that it was probably his abscess bursting and was actually a good sign. Sure enough although he was clearly in a lot of pain his eye started to improve a little. He’s off to the vet this morning to be checked over to make sure things are going the right way.
It does all mean I’m not going to the show I was going to be in this weekend. Alfie was supposed to be going to kennels for the weekend and Mum really hasn’t got the heart to make him do that. Ari and I have asked if we can still go to kennels to get chance to play with our friends and for me it will make up for not seeing the friends I would have seen. It also means Mum and Alfie can have a day or two of more time together which they both need.
We’re all a bit envious of Dad too at the moment. He has to go to Switzerland for a couple of days next week. We want to go too, but he’s explained he has to fly and we can’t go on the plane. He has to visit somewhere that is not that far from where my Mum and sister live. I said he should go to see them for me, but he won’t have a car.
We heard some news about Shadow’s family yesterday. Her dad apparently died last year but at the grand age of fourteen. It’s a shame she never got to meet him, but I’m glad he lived to a good old age.
Have a great day
