bright-eyed and waggy-tailed

Current work: medical continuity
Listening to: Bach
Reading: next on TBR

Byron is back to being waggy-tailed and springy today. He was very sorry for himself last night but I think he enjoyed the TLC of being hand-fed small pieces of salmon (well, hey, he needed soft, light food – so of course I was going to spoil him). Getting him to take the antibiotics this morning was surprisingly easy; just wrapped some chicken round it, and it was gone. He needs to go back to the nurse for a check-up on Friday, but he’s definitely feeling better and I’m much happier. I’m surprised at how quickly his teeth went from being OK at the last booster/checkup to needing removal this time round; it’s not as if we sit there feeding him sugary stuff. He does get bits of cold meat, poultry or fish from my plate, I admit, but nothing with salt or what have you. The main thing is that he’s fine. All is definitely better with the world when you have a dog by your side.

I swapped yesterday round as I knew I wouldn’t be able to concentrate on anything, so it’s guitar today plus visiting Dad. Hopefully his confusion won’t be so bad today. And, if he knows who I am today, it’ll be a bonus.

Glad Byron is well again. You feel so responsible, don't you?

Look after yourself.

Glad he's doing well. Roly had ALL of his teeth out, apart from 2 at the very front.

Yay to Byron being back! I bet he's so glad to be home again.
