Hello and good morning.
I’ve been up since 4.30 but surprisingly do not feel tired………….. yet.
The revenge of the bone became apparent at 5am, though the previous motion half an hour before as pre-warned by Maya’s breeder was white. There was a repeat performance at 9.15 so hopefully that will all be out of her system by the time we get to the vet this morning for 11.30.
We’re seeing the new one today and will ask for Maya to be given a thorough check up as she will be 6 months old tomorrow. Worming and flea treatments should also be administered and we shall ask for her nails to be clipped as we are convinced the nurse at the other practice didn’t do them.
The two greyhounds came calling this morning and apparently make a beeline for our drive every time they pass. I am wondering maybe if Maya is coming into season and that is what’s piqued their acute interest. They’re not a nuisance or aggressive but something I can ask the vet today. I can’t see any evidence, but a couple of weeks ago she was a bit pongy and I rang her to breeder to ask if it was possible at such a young age.
I noticed a neighbour wheeling our direct neighbour’s green waste bin away at 5am and when he saw me, he said she’d told him it was OK for him to put some stuff in it. I didn’t think so, but couldn’t challenge him and later (at a sensible hour) text her to let her know. As I thought, she hadn’t said anything of the sort and will now put her bin out later on in the morning on collection days. We don’t particularly like him, especially as he dragged his previous dog along despite its back legs collapsing under it. He had also approached us to look after it so that he could go away (emphatic NO) and then when we lost Maggie, he asked if we’d look after the new one. We declined. He’s the sort who takes advantage, without permission, and wants something for nothing. To be honest, he gives me the creeps and I don’t trust his new dog as far as I could throw it.
