Happy 1st Birthday Boris




I'd forgotten how much work puppies were! Boy did you re educate me quickly, with the digging up of my lovely garden, the almost constant removal of slugs and stones from your mouth, the endless trips outside every hour on the hour day and night to potty, it took you weeks to get the hang of toilet training didn't it, where did all that poop come from in one so small? 
I was exhausted after one week, had I made a mistake, I was starting to think so! 
We've had fun times too didn't we and over time you started to learn. You learnt about the clicker and before long we were on a roll, learning new things everyday, you have such a powerful drive to learn and willingness to please it's amazing and I enjoyed teaching you too. 
We had a few problems along the way with your surgery but thankfully we had a good insurance policy from Pet Plan, so no need to worry about those thousands of pounds it cost to get you pain free. 
I've loved every minute of our first year together, even the naughty ones. To me you're perfect in every way, the love of my life and bring so much joy and happiness too every single day.

Love, love, love swimming in the sea, much more fun than paddling in muddy puddles :)

I'm a Yellow Dog

I'm out and about on very short walks on the lead now, I'm still not allowed to play with other pups, so I wear a yellow ribbon on my harness and lead to inform everypawdy I need some space since my surgery.


There are lots of different reasons why some dogs are Yellow Dogs.

The important thing to remember if you see a Yellow Dog is that the pup needs its space.
Please call your dog away or put him/her on the lead, it would be much appreciated.

Luckily for me it's a short term thing, in 9 weeks time when I'm all healed up, I'll be racing around and meeting up with my buddies again on the common.

A Lot Has Happened

WHOOPS
I missed a couple of weeks.

Not a very successful start to my new job as a Doggy Blogger, but I do have a really good excuse.

A couple of times I've suffered from unexplained lameness in my front leg which as always healed with rest, but mummy decided it needed investigating as there was no reason for me to be going lame.

So off to the vets I went for X-Rays, then a couple of days later mummy gets a phone call that I have to go to Fitzpatrick Referrals for a CT scan as something is wrong.

Off I go to Fitzpatricks and have my scan, it turns out I have fractures in my elbows. Apparently I'm suffering from something called Fragmented Medial Coronoid Process (FCP) which too you and I  means I have Elbow Dysplasia, you can read more about FCP here

Everypawdy is very upset by this news, my mummy especially, she waited a very long time to find me, we had many plans of the things we would do together but at the moment we're not sure what the future holds.

I stayed at Fitpatricks in the hospital for two nights and had an operation on both my elbows to remove all the diseased bone and cartilage, it was called a Subtotal Coronoid Ostectomy (SCO).
As a result of my surgery I can only walk on the lead for the next 12 weeks, no free running and nothing that will cause impact to my elbows. 
I also got given the weirdest hair cut and had to wear **whispers behind paw** The Cone of Shame! 


Luckily mummy had one of them fat collars, so as soon as I got home she put it on me instead, she said I was far too dangerous with that cone on, keep bashing into things.


Here I am waiting to go into the vets to have my stitches removed and to see the Physio, thankfully my fur has started to grow back, but it can still get very chilly, so  sometimes I have to wear a coat now.


The good news is, no more fat collar and I'm just waiting for an appointment to start Hydrotherapy to build up my muscles again.

That's about it from me for now.
 I wonder what my next Daft Adventure will be?
