Monday Morning Blog Club 22/05/17
Goodmorning People And Fellow Bloggers!
How are you on this fine Monday morning? How was your weekend? Has the weather warmed up where you are making you want to get out and about? What did you do? Where did you go?
For me, last week was very up and down. It started on a bit of downer when we discovered that Buddy, the dog I picked up at the side of the road with his sister, has bad hips already. He is only eight months old! It didn’t come as a total surprise, the signs were there, so when I took him to be castrated in the week I mentioned it. A good job too as apparently it’s not good to get young dogs showing signs of bad joints castrated before they have finished growing as it can make things worse.
Anyway, after picking myself up and shaking myself down, I have decided that knowledge is power! I now have him on joint supplements, golden paste (a paste made up from turmeric and olive oil) and half a can of sardines every other day. Gentle exercise is good too, to help strengthen his hind legs, but no running off the lead and if play gets too boisterous with our other dogs I bring him in. On the positive side, he appears not to be in pain, it’s just the audible crunching I sometimes hear that makes me cringe. I must take him for another check in a couple of months and I know that the problem is not going to go away, but hopefully, we can keep damage to a minimum.
Now For The Positive!
On the upside last week, last Friday I learned that my sister won Pride Of Devon in the best parent category! I am so happy for her and she truly deserves it. Many of you won’t know, but last year my sister gave her husband one of her kidneys! We had been aware for quite some time that her husband would one day need a kidney transplant, but what are the odds that your spouse turns out to be the best match?… I still battle with the idea of giving my husband some chocolate when I have some!
Last week also saw me start my new job and I am loving it. There is so much to learn that my head is buzzing! At the moment I am taking baby steps and trying not to look at the bigger picture for fear of being overwhelmed. In time I will be attending weddings and I can see my biggest problem being finding the venues as my sense of direction is terrible!
