Last week Tim came home to a very happy family of 2 legs and 4 legs. Morse was initially terrified for some reason, he smelled Tim then ran off. A couple of hours later he sat next to Tim on the sofa and has not left his side since. Tim’s had 2 teeth out which caused him a lot of grief and pain and wouldn’t stop bleeding but 4 days later its settling down and he is up and about. this afternoon we will return to the hospital and find out about his next chemotherapy regime.
Last Friday I escaped to Three Counties Champ Show with Curtis and Eddie. I had a lovely day out and the bonus was a 3rd with Eddie and Curtis won his class under breed specialist Moray Armstrong.
It’s nearly 5 weeks since Tim’s diagnosis and admission and he has completed his 1st of 4 treatments of chemotherapy. The side effects have subsided now and he is waiting for his blood counts to come back up to a healthy range. Once his neutrophil count hits 1 he might be allowed home for a few days before they start round 2 of chemo and knock them all down again. Today his neutrophils were 0.81 so nearly there. We are all missing him so much and will be pleased to hear him chuntering around the house.
Courtesy of my good friends some dogs have attended dog shows being professionally handled by various folk. Scottish Kennel Club champ show, judged by Gary Nicholas-Steele saw the arrival of Beryl and Eddie. Beryl was shown by Ann Nugent of Nulea cockers and got a very good 2nd in her class. Eddie was tackled by Kate and won his class. The next outing was Southern Counties where Mark Boswell of Marquell kennels took and handled Eddie. Eddie was much steadier than normal, obviously dare not play Mark up and won his class. I am thrilled and owe alot to the above guys for stepping into my shoes. Thank you.
