Rest in Peace dear Tam
I'm sorry i have not written much. The couple of days and weeks had been busy with looking after poorly dogs and non stop visit to the vets. the first dog to be ill was poor Alice she had been sick for a few days and got so dehydrated she had to go to the vets to go on a drip to get her feeling better and eating again. Alice recovered well. The next to fall ill was Tam with the same symptoms of Alice being really sick and dehydrated. So poor Tam had to go to the vets and have the drip.
Tam recovered then her back just got weaker and weaker and she just collapsed not able to walk and go to the toilet. It was really upsetting to see and shocking how fast poor Tam deteriorated. Tam was in so much pain she sadly had to be put to sleep.
The vets said this is a common thing that happens to alot of big dogs where their back legs just collapses and become useless.
All the family and all the rest of the dogs, the pack are in a bit of a daze. Ive only managed to cut some two inch strips ready for some log cabin blocks at a later date. Ive been trying to keep Jim busy doing things including cutting strips for me for something for Jim to do.
There was a trip to the dentist and I have to have a wisdom tooth out next week due to an abscess. I have been given some anti biotics and believe me I'm not looking forward to have a tooth out next week. Infections and abscesses can cause problems with relapses so I have to be careful, any infections to get them sorted. I didn't realise any infections such as bladder infections bad gums, colds and flu's and trigger off relapses too. We have all been trying to keep positive despite these grey days. Hope everyone else is OK and keeping creative.
