Hello there! Sorry for the absence - sometimes life gets in the way! Like most of the country we have experienced massive snowfall and cold temperatures. The central heating has been cranked up and many cups of tea and coffee have been drunk to keep the circulation going!
The back garden - the table and chairs iced in snow.
Geroge loves the snow. Charlie isn't so sure.
George barks to be let out every half hour so that he can frolick in it! The kitchen floor ends up in a dreadful state but he doesn't care!
As I was looking out of the window - I spotted this novel way of getting your shopping home!
The snow has meant more time spent at home, which has meant that I've been on the computer looking at things and spending too! Do you like this dachshund? I spotted him on Folksy. I had been looking for something as a finishing touch on a chest of drawers in the bedroom.
Not content with one dachshund - I spotted this one on ebay and was as pleased as punch when my bid won! I love his diamante effect collar. He now proudly sits on another chest of drawers.
Who's this? It's Charlie in a Buster Collar or should I say wearing a Collar of Shame / Lampshade. He somehow managed to dislocate one of his claws on his right front paw. We don't quite know how it happened, we just noticed him limping on Friday night after he'd come back from his walk. We initially thought that he might have just bruised his paw but after seeing him unwilling to leave his bed for two days and, when he did just hobbling on three legs we knew it was time to go to the vets.
Whilst there he was given the once over as we had discovered a lump on his neck - luckily the vet came to the conclusion that this was nothing to worry about but a blood sample was sent to the laboratory as the vet thinks he might have an underactive thyroid - all will be revealed tomorrow when the results are due back.
You can see in his eyes in this photo that he's not a happy chappie. He hasn't got the hang of the collar and keeps knocking into things especially my legs!
KP has turned 12. I've had to delay her Birthday party due to the snow! It is scheduled now for early February. Hopefully the white stuff will have cleared by then!
Thanks as always for your kind comments on my last post.
Until next time,
