I have some kind of american cold at the moment. Bought back by Lloyd. Form LA or New York he tells me. As usual its gone straight to my throat. Feels like someones had a quick whip around in there with some sandpaper. Today my eyes are constantly watering.
Anyway – I was taking some photos of Betty the other day and I noticed she's suddenly gone very grey around the muzzle. She'll be nine soon, which isn't ancient but she's starting to get a bit creaky around the back legs. She's already had a full knee reconstruction ( about five years ago). She used to climb up the ladder to get in the cubby house but when she wanted to get down she'd just launch from the top. So that leg gets stiff in winter. And her eyes are getting a bit milky and she has this awful sinus problem. Always snotty and snuffly. She's had tablets and tests and injections, but nothing seems to help.
She used to have a nice little tag but it broke so we put the luggage tag on her until we get a new one made. I ask her most days if she's going on a holiday. Which I'm sure got pretty old for her after about the first ten times.
