Today is Wednesday 25th May

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.

Looks like it’s going to be a warm and muggy day.
Take care and keep safe everyone.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    I know cats and dogs are completely different, but our first cat first came into season at just 5 months. An amazing display! Straight to the vet after that.

    I do hope the vet visit goes well, Ruby has one tomorrow. There is always one low life neighbour isn’t there on the cadge and being sneaky?!
    Let’s hope Maya has got rid of the bone residue… 💜💜💜💞

    I’d be worried about the new dog. One of our neighbours beat his German shepherd on a walk one day, he was most surprised when one of our group grabbed the dog, and another punched him in the nose. He treats the dog a lot better now, he knows we’re all keeping an eye on him

  4. I clearly have some back posts to read! I hope Maya is well. I presume she found a bone somewhere and had a good gnaw on it before you could stop her? I feel for any animal that is homed with such an ‘owner’, may he get the same treatment done to him in another life. Take care Di!

    • Maya is OK, and we gave her the smaller bone, which she ate in its entirety! I rang the breeder to ask if it was OK and she said not to worry, and that the poo would be white. Well, the solid stuff was, but the rest is yellow liquid and has to be rinsed away. Too rich I guess.
      As for the guy down the road, we avoid him and his dog.

    Yes it is possible for larger breed dogs to go into heat as early as 6 months but it isn’t the norm… I’d be very watchful! As for the sneaky neighbor, I’d say something to him. That should put an end to it since those types only do it until they’re caught!

    • I’ve told our neighbour whose bin her used and she says she hadn’t spoken to him for months. Anyway, she will put her green bin out later in the morning rather than the night before, so that should scupper his plans.
