Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

On the mend.

We made a big decision to neuter Louis this week. He had the procedure on Friday at our wonderful vets. Day one was heart breaking, Louis with a bucket on his head is a pitiful sight. By 11pm that was off so he could sleep, I stayed up and watched him all night to ensure he didn’t lick. Day two is much better, no whimpering and he is having regular little meals and enjoying a drink. He cocked his leg this evening which had us getting quite giddy. Monday we go for his follow up visit and we will resume little walks.
We got a new head bucket for him which looks comfortable; he will wear it tonight so I may sleep wthout worrying, he still gets the big sofa whilst I crunch up on the little one. Andy has been great, my little leveller, it’s such a good job one of us is normal. Andy did the shopping, family visiting and day to day running of the house whilst I looked after Louis. We know he’s getting back to normal, he’s wanting my tea and dropping his toy at my feet. We will keep you informed as to what changes occur over the next few months. Diet, exercise and general attitude are some things we can monitor. I do hope by having this procedure his health will be secure, no cancer or any other related illnesses in the region.
