New Start 4 - Shelagh update
So here is poor old Shelagh with her paw having been sliced open to take out the grass seed (thank God they got it out!) and feeling very sorry for herself. She's a bit of an old ham limping around when I'm watching but she wasn't in much pain when she heard me rustling my LL toffee bar judging by the speed of her descent down the stairs!!
As an aside, she absolutely LOVES the bars. I must have saved loads of calories over the months as I give her tiny morsels of each one every time I have a bite - it's our ritual to share a bar each evening! She's like a junkie when one is within reach!
She has to take a load of tablets for the next few days and I can't let her out without the bag on to keep the open wound clean and I'm meant to stop her licking it or jumping hard on that paw (yeah right - that's going to be easy - you can't exactly explain these things to a dog..!?). Apart from that she seems ok in herself if a bit grumpy, so not too bad. Now I just have to hope that the insurance will cover it as otherwise I'm out £208!
Anyway, I'll post again properly later but thought you'd want to know how the patient is getting on. She thanks you for all your good wishes!!
