A Good Night: Maggie update

I fully expected a bad night with Maggie, but she curled up beside me when I got back from darts and apart from rolling over twice, didn’t move all night.
She is very subdued, but having been through the effects of an anesthetic myself recently, I can understand!
She doesn’t like it if we’re in different places as she doesn’t know who to stay with as if she’s feeling insecure she goes to Hubby, whereas if she’s feeling unwell, she comes to me. Obviously she’s feeling a little of both so we are having a quiet day, and keeping her within our sights to relieve any anxiety.

The wound doesn’t look very nice, but is clean and so far she hasn’t worried it. I gave her some breakfast with her meds in it this morning and a couple of pieces of sausage from the darts supper. The little minx snorkled out the egg and ate the sausage, but I have some corned beef in reserve to tempt her later. She has had some cheese though and some of her normal dinner, so that is a positive sign.

Our walk this morning produced two wees but no poo, but as she ate hardly anything yesterday, we are not surprised. Hopefully later today for that.
For now though, she’s curled up on her fluffy cushion and sleeping.

I’ve made a cake today to make a change from having biscuits, though Hubby is feeling a little under the weather himself. Nothing fancy, just a plain victoria sponge like this:
This picture was taken in February last year, so it’s been that long since I last made one!

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.

    Sorry that hubby is not 100% and that he will soon be much better. I am so glad Maggie is on the up, and I love the look of the “Yearly Cake” 😜🥴

  7. I am sure that Maggie will bounce back quickly and I am sure you are glad it is all over. I hope your hubby recovers quickly.

    Great that Maggieis eating. That is a really good sign. Sorry to hear about hubby’s sore throat though. That sucks! Good wishes to alk of you xxx

  9. That cake looks lovely…does her Nibs get a nibble of it? I’m happy to learn she is feeling better…I think I’ve missed a memo or two and will go back on your timeline and read more. Good days!

    • She did indeed Melanie as it was just a plain mix, so no chocolate or non-doggy stuff. She’s done really well today, drinking well and really tucked into her dinner, She still likes to know where we both are though, so we won’t be doing anything ‘individual’ for a few days.
      Have you had a good day?
