    A trip to the vet proved interesting this afternoon. Make an appointment, arrive at allotted time and park in the car park....do not go inside...ring to let them know you have arrived, the vet comes out and does a preliminary consult, takes dog inside, you stay there in car park, vet returns with dog, meds and eftpos machine. $162 later we have an infected toe after the nail got ripped off somewhere in the garden and a wobbly kneecap that may need replacing down the track. :mad:

    :( :nailbiting: Big hugs to the pooch. {-(^^)-}

    As we now have 3 dogs in the house (Merlin the Labradog, Shadow (as mentioned earlier) plus my brother and his dog) that is one thing that is always at the back of my mind - needing to see the Vet. However, ours is now doing video consultations where possible. Not sure how that would work, though, and really don't want to have to find out. :eek:

    Thank you. Archie’s Mum is fine. I don’t think the foot bandage will last the night though. He’s already been into it. It’s only there because it was bleeding too much but it should be fine now. He may find himself confined in the man cave for a few days though. There’s a nice bed in there and carpet on the floor. He won’t complain, I’m sure.

    A schoolfriend of my daughter had to have her dog put to sleep yesterday. The schoolfriend had to stay outside.
    A couple of weeks ago we had to phone the main vet surgery for the usual 3 months worth off flea treatment ( our vet is closed) and the stuff was posted to us.Cost to send £5 . Administration fee. Next problem will be her yearly check. Was told that it will be okay for 3 months after last years.

    My dog is the same. I found putting a small childs sock over the bandage than wrapping some sort of tape e.g. electrical tape over it slowed the removal down.

    You can buy vetwrap on eBay or other outlets. Some bandages are better quality (better adhesion) - I use them on my knee when out walking.

    My husband has been in a video conference in the kitchen (with work) for hours. I really want a biscuit, but if I sneek in I'll be seen.

    It’s hilarious watching him walk. One step, lifts the foot and shakes, another step, lifts the foot and shakes...all this whilst limping on the other one. Now he’s rolling around trying to rip it off. If we can get through the night then I can take it off tomorrow. :sceptical:

    I’ve seen that happen, when Dads doing an interview and in waddles the little one. Mum sneaks in grabs the child and slinks back out, quietly closing the door behind her.

    That was in my mind, in fact. :rolleyes:

    Fortunately the conference ended so they didn't see the top of my head as I was forced to walk on my knees around the counter.

    My son is something fairly high up in his company. He has been wfh since mid March. He goes into his office and usually shuts the door but as he has a giant computer and some tomato plants germinating under a hot light thingy it was roasting the other day. So a baby gate was erected to keep grandsons out. He was on a video call the other day with the top brass from Philadelphia and other sundry places when Grandson No. 1 yelled from the downstairs toilet (adjacent to the office) MUM IVE DONE A POO! ITS REALLY BIG. The whole meeting collapsed whilst son was trying to pretend it had never happened.

    That is just hilarious. His work colleagues will never look at him the same way again. :D
    I hope the colleagues understand that they ARE tomato plants growing there in the background :sceptical:

    Well, Nature marches on regardless of our predicament!
    The swallows arrived from Africa this morning. Huddled down
    by last years nest in the stable looking totally knackered! By
    tomorrow they will be busy refurbishing the nest preparing
    for their first brood. Last year they reared three broods! This
    made them very late in flying off on their long journey!
    I love working with them around, and especially the day the
    brood venture out of the nest for the first time. Within an hour
    Mum and Dad are giving them flying lessons!

    I must keep my eyes peeled for the arrival of the swifts - this morning a nest of blue tits fledged from the bird box at the bottom of the garden. We might get 2 lots of babies this year as the first lot are so early.
