Update on himself πŸ–€

β€’52 Replies

The man himself is doing so well that hes now off all the medicine that he was on completely.

I give him turmeric and coconut oil twice a day on his food ...

He now comes on 2 walks a day with us and is very sprightly..

The dirty bugger loves mud dirty water and chasing birds to flush them out he has a manic spaniel scream to alert the other dogs hes on the chase .. the birds are gone before he gets there so kudos to them ..

Hes still very good at everything else climbing on our beds when we are out sneaking out the front garden and barking at the locals everybody knows him now and he's taken his status in the village rather well πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’œ

Aww Stan! We do love you ❀️ and hearing of your stories! He looks very regal there as if he’s looking out over his kingdom!

Blackbird8 in reply to madonbrew

It's his kingdom for sure our favourite place where we can sit and have lunch and a cuppa to enjoy with it πŸ’œ hope your well with everything that's been going on ❀❀

madonbrew in reply to Blackbird8

Bless him!

Thank you 😊 I literally stayed in bed most of the day today resting as I didn’t have any energy to do much else, but had dinner and just watching a place in the sun now!


Blackbird8 in reply to madonbrew

Rest up and take care place in the sun .. I wish πŸ˜‚β€

That’s such a beautiful photo in so many ways. It makes me happy to know Stan the Man is doing so well 🐢

Thankyou ever so much Huff hes doing fantastic and loving the warmer weather I think its helping his old bones β€πŸ’œ hope your well and your sheep are all good ☺️

Ha, ha, ha. What a character. Just loving life.

Blackbird8 in reply to Lemon7

Lol hes a character alright complete nutter some days πŸ’œ

What a great photo BB with the sunlight streaming through. I take turmeric and coconut oil for my rheumatoid arthritis and it does help, so am sure this has given him a new lease of life. It sounds like he is a so much fun to be around and making you both happy x

Blackbird8 in reply to Izb1

Hes a little dream machine ...not to great this morning he had his worming tablets yesterday as the box said..he was sick a lot a few hours after which has made him look very sorry for himself this morning...

Hes bouncy enough just not quite right ...breakfast eaten had a walk and is now on his bed with a hot water bottle to keep him warm as he has been confined to the kitchen just in case...its a tiled floor so I wont have a repeat of yesterday yeuch on the couch πŸ™ˆ

Izb1 in reply to Blackbird8

Awww, is that normal? Poor boy x

Blackbird8 in reply to Izb1

A reaction I guess he was fine with the last lot he had but these were different ones yesterday πŸ™ˆ

Izb1 in reply to Blackbird8

Perhaps they were too strong for him, hope he settles down and gets well soon x

Blackbird8 in reply to Izb1

Hes fine just annoying he was sick and I did feel for him his big soppy eyes πŸ™ˆ

Love that boy ❀

Blackbird8 in reply to Shirleyj

Me too πŸ’œ

Aww bless Stanley. He's doing so well and enjoying life xx

Hes a bit yeuch today worming tablets yesterday didn't quite agree πŸ™ˆ

oh dear - x

I do love your photo . I hope Stan realises how lucky he is to be rescued by you . Maybe he is reflecting on this while looking out over the water-- or more likely just about to plunge in!

Blackbird8 in reply to Jaybird19

I think the plunging thought is more his forte its us that are lucky to have him πŸ’œ

Lovely pic and such good news about Stan. I think you must be a dog whisperer Blackbird.

Blackbird8 in reply to Alberta56

Aww just a dog walker for a living which is the best job ever after 30 years with the NHS as a clinical lead scrub anaesthetic nurse in theatres... πŸ’œ

That's a lovely photo, thank you. What is it about dogs that love mucky water!! Our labrador is the same, she likes nothing better than going into dirty conduit pipes and drips muck all over the kitchen floor!! I think they like the attention it causes. Good to hear that Stan is doing so well from all the TLC. Take care. Carol xxx

Blackbird8 in reply to HollyBoyd

Lol sounds lovley it's in their nature I guess but I walk a few that skirt round a puddle before getting paws wet πŸ™ˆ

It’s so lovely watching their personality grow. I swear I can see my Bertie’s brain ticking sometimes when he decides to have a mad moment. That’s not so often now as he’s coming up for ten. Jax. x🐢

Aww bless love that name Bertie ...


I simply love Stanley and enjoy all the wonderful things you get up to xx

Blackbird8 in reply to tillie

Awww thankyou he appreciates all the love ☺️

Stanley my man what a super dog you are, your β€˜Dad’ takes such good care of you, lucky you. Even those horrible worming tabs that make you feel a bit under the weather are better than getting horrible worms.

Your β€˜Dad’ also takes wonderful photos of your good self, I want to come back β€˜down south’ to give you a good cuddle.

But, do tell your β€˜Dad’ off as he’s not β€˜just’ a dog Walker he’s providing a great service to those who need their hounds walking.

Love and hugs

Jude and the furries


Blackbird8 in reply to judes
