A day in January

Rain Rain go away! Thats all we have had for days..our garden is like a big mud pie which is lots of fun..funny the hoomans don't seem to share our sense of fun. They are forever washing the kitchen floor. LOL We really want more snow so we can go out and play.

Cora is now back to her normal fun finally we were today allowed to have our juicy marrowbones yum yum. Although we get one each Teddy and Holly decided to play a game of "tugga bone". It was funny watching Holly dragging our Teddy across the floor....neither of them were going to give up that bone! There nearly was a photo but when we got the camera someone who will remain nameless had removed the card from it.

Hopefully the camera will remain out of action... cause the dreaded deed of stripping has begun! Everyday she looks for a volunteer. A volunteer is this woman mad? LOL Somehow one of us ends up on the table...3 of us are half stripped. Poor Webster & Dorcus are fast loosing their very furry coats.

Last night Webster was on the grooming table trying to sleep when on came this racket apparently called music. If it wasn't bad enough it was some blokie named James Blunt thing all hell breaks loose as Teddy has found a big tin lid which he is carrying in his gob going round and round the kitchen banging it on everything to the music....persued by 4 other thuglets howling!

Cora's progress

Our good news is that Cora is doing really well today. She is so much brighter in herself. She has had her meds (putting up a struggle now at medication time) and 6 small chicken meals also she has been drinking water by herself!

Its such a relief to us all to see her getting better. She really did give us a scare. Lets hope she is now well and turely on the road to recovery. Back to the vets for a checkup tomorrow.

A huge thankyou to eveyone for all your lovely wishes and positive thoughts.

We'll keep you posted.

p.s. we are all still being closely monitored and followed everywhere! The hoomans are watching. One is checking our poohs and the other is checking to make sure we drink. Poor daddy he has to check to make sure we drink!

Cora Update

Cora ..... well we had a bit of a setback yesterday she stopped drinking again and was refusing all we monitored her but she started to concern us again. We were giving her water in a syringe.

So New Years Eve back to emergency vets she went...........she wasn't as dehydrated as the other night but they decided to give her more fluids and re-xray her to see if anything had moved and could be seen. The xrays showed absolutely nothing!

The current diagnosis if a viral gastro-enteritis! Cora was given 3 litres of fluid and once she came round from the anesthetic mum and dad were able to bring here home at 10pm last night.

Because she was quite whoosie from the anesthetic she went in the large crate in the kitchen as we all wanted her to rest. She is also best with us thuglets as we are always together. We were very good and we all settled very quickly and we had a peaceful night ..the hoomans didn't sleep much for listening!

Cora's antibiotics have been because they are not working with what ever she has and secondly the vet said what we had also wondered was she having a reaction to them? which may be a possibility!

She now has two liquids which are given to her 3 times a day by syringe to help keep her hydrated and also if she isn't drinking we are giving her a supplement in water by a large syringe every hour.

We now just have to work her through this..the vet said to expect ups and downs and it will be a long slow recovery..but she is a strong dog and he does not consider it life threatening ..the important thing is keeping her hydrated. She is going abck to the vets tomorrow further checkup.

The good news is she is brighter today and has eaten a finely chopped chicken breast as well as having her first 2 syringes of medication. Cora is only allowed out with one of us to toilet so that she can be monitored and save her energy so she can put it all into getting better.

The rest of us remain fighting fit...but we are being closely monitored.

We just want our little Scottish princess well again!

Thank you everyone for your positve thoughts and get well messages to Cora.

Happy New Year from us all.

We will keep you posted.
