  • Hey Dee

    sorry to hear about Ben and I'm thinking of you hunny

    Calming lavender fluffies for you :)


  • Oh Dee my fingers are crossed for your lovely dog I hope it all works out ok xxginsx

  • What a terrible unfortunate happening..I hope for you too that

    all is well by morning or soon after. Hang in there.

    I'm coping well but where I live, it's almost 1am and I am

    not sleepy. I am working on some "homework for a class.

    Staying up late is for the birds but in the morning there's a lot to do.

    My body is pretty achy tonight anyway..I hate fibro already. It's mostly

    in my shoulder.

  • I hope your boxer dog is ok. it's so sad to lose beloved pets but although over the years I've lost several darling pets I'm still thankful for the lovely times we've shared and wouldn't have been without them. Thinking of you! x

  • Hi Dee,

    I can't imagine what you must be going through, knowing myself how it feels to have a poorly dog. I shall keep everything crossed that Ben is ok and back with you soon. I know it must come harder having lost another such a short time ago.

    We found out yesterday that my dog has diabetes and will need two insulin injections for the rest of his life. Between us, myself and my OH didn't do a great job of holding it together yesterday. I have to take him to the vets on Monday for blood tests, a full examination and for them to talk me through what I'll have to do.

    On top of that I've been awake the last few hours with such an awful sensation and am pretty sure I have a UTI... yay, just what I needed..! I'm up now. Every time I laid down I needed to go to the bathroom again. Wll be drinking lots today and hoping it will clear itself, but if not drs tomorrow. I need to be OK for my dog.

    I hope all goes well for Ben and that you can get him home soon. I know how I was yesterday, so I really feel for you Dee. My thoughts are with you and Ben and I so hope they find it's something that can be easily treated and sorted quickly.

    All the best. Take care,

    Pip xx
