A few recent pics

All seems to be going well with Whoopi, she had her scans and this showed that her neck is now stable but she has a large lesion on the right hand side of her brain, this is what is affecting her left hand side coordination. Hopefully with time (and physio) her brain will rewire itself and her condition should continue to improve, but even if there were no further improvement I can happily say that her quality of life is good and she appears to be completely pain free. She is on quiet walks, with just Cash and Tiffany for company, for a couple more weeks, then she should be able to start going out with the pack again. I am going to be superfit by the end of her recuperation as the separate walks meant that last week I covered over 80 miles!!!

The kittens are 9 weeks old today, the go for their first vaccinations tomorrow. These babies are all booked but we hope to have more kittens in about a fortnight.

Pictures :)

We had a beach day, fewer on numbers as Tiffany is in season so she had to stay at home, as did Whoopi for obvious reasons.

 The kittens are delightful, growing up fast. All have homes waiting for them but we hope to have some more in about 5 weeks time.

 Whoopi continues to make really good progress, she's off to see a specialist next week where she will have a CT scan and then she will almost certainly have spinal surgery the following day, so please keep your fingers crossed for us.

A couple of updates

Beetles kittens are well and truly up and running, all 3 are super friendly and very confident. The weather was lovely today so we took them into the garden for a couple of pictures. Fawlty came to check them out, but decided not to hang about, possibly worried about being stung for child maintenance payments!

Whoopi's recovery is proving to be nothing short of miraculous. Her most recent xrays show that she is healing very well. Although she still circles to the right, every day we see a slight improvement.  She will be going to see the specialist in a couple of weeks and we expect that surgery to fully stabilise the neck will be the next step. She is one hell of a puppy. 

Meanwhile the other dogs are still needing time and attention, they are all still getting their usual walks and Florin is continuing her trick training. This week she learnt how to ring a bell, took her less than 2 minutes to work out what she had to do, smart pup :)
