Even though I haven’t been doing these on a regular basis, I hope I’m entitled to use the above logo.

Our questions this week are

Is there one post on your site that is really special to you?
Yes, well two now.
Daddy’s Little Girl originally posted in November 2013 and reblogged in June 2015 for Father’s Day.

and a counter post written a few days later entitled ‘I am my Mother’s Other Daughter’
https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2013/11/18/i-am-my-mothers-other-daughter/

With Mum gone too now, they are both special posts.

How Do You Deal With Negative People?
If I can’t make them laugh, I avoid them. I don’t need negativity. I have enough to worry about just now.

What Is The First Thing You Think Of When You Wake In The Morning?
Breakfast.

Would You Rather Be Able To Talk With The Animals Or Speak All Foreign Languages?
As I get on better with dogs than people, talk to the animals. They’d probably tell me to leave them alone as I tend to gush over them.

What small thing happened today (or in the past few days) that you were grateful for?
The new vet was able to remove most, if not all, of the lump in Maggie’s mouth last Friday. Her face is no longer lopsided, and she is much better in herself. We thought it had been bothering her, so are glad we’ve got it sorted out now.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Of COURSE you’re welcome to use the logo. When Cee used to do SYW, she made up the banner , and I’m not sure what “member” means. In my version of SYW, everyone is welcome, there are no members. Maybe I’ll have to redesign that a little … hmmm.

    I read about Maggie and was so pleased it came out well. Good vets? Hard to find!

    • W are very pleased and she seem so much more comfortable.

      • That must have made her a bit miserable, especially if it got really large.

      • The problem was first noticed over a year ago and a biopsy done (though we believed they were actually going to remove it and a different vet to the one we saw did the op). It was benign and didn’t seem to be bothering her, but we have been watching her. It had gotten bigger some months ago and when we took her in for something else, they said there wasn’t really anything they could do as it would leave a big hole in her mouth. We continued to watch and it continued to get bigger, so we decided to get a second opinion. However, we had our own health problems and it kept being put back but last week we thought enough was enough as she was favouring one side when she ate. Seeing the new vet, he read the biopsy report, had a look and said he could do something which would reduce it and make her more comfortable. As it turns out, he was able to remove most, if not all, of it and stitched the wound too. We have noticed a distinct improvement in the way she eats and sleeps, and she seems a lot happier now, so we know we were right to get it done. It may come back of course, but at the moment, she is comfortable and more relaxed, so it was probably giving her a lot more trouble than we thought, bless her.

      • Dogs really teach us about patience, endurance and love. I’m so glad it turned out that way. After Taco (my dog guest) goes home (in ten days or so), I’m going to have to address what to do about Huny, as her cough continues to worsen and I’m really afraid of what they’ll find. I don’t particularly trust the vet who diagnosed her either. But time will tell. It sucks when circumstances (like your horrid flu bug) interferes with life, doesn’t it? Maggie is a doll btw…isn’t that her pic you have posted?

      • I have loads of pics of Maggie in my blog and am always reusing them or adding new ones. She was in my last couple of headers, but I fancied a change and used one of my beach shots this time.
        When our previous dog had kennel cough, we gave him a very small amount of benylin cough mixture which seemed to help. He was a border collie, so a lot bigger than Huny. I don’t know what to suggest and appreciate your worry and concerns. Does your surgery have a second vet you could ask for another opinion? We are lucky that we have the tansport to get us to the vet in Louth and although there is another in his surgery, we can ask to see him each time and will be put on his daily appointments giving us the continuity we wanted with one on one. Maggie will see him again for a follow up on the 14th.
