if you have arrived at this blog expecting sunshine and flowers, smiles and laughter, or tales of joy, you are at the wrong blog entirely.......
here at cupcakes we are sadly suffering
poor, poor beanie, injured badly
this picture shows a tiny amount of the damage that has happened to my sweet girl. Just ask Mr Afterburn - he was there.........
the three of us and the four hounds all giddy with excitement at the chance of spending time together
running around the grounds of a beautiful empty house we had found, peeping through windows, discovering its own moat, battlements,gnarled trees, walled garden..........
the dogs frantically following the scent of yummy rabbits, rushing through bushes and trees
suddenly a cry
i turn to the boys and say - eekk - that is talullas cry ..... RABBIT FOUND
we carried on exploring waiting for the team to return with the catch of the day, they returned empty mouthed, which made me very happy.
we returned to the front of the house all rosy cheeked and watched as my girls run full pelt up and down the driveway
happy dogs and happy owners
then i noticed bean licking her front legs
licking and trying to remove the long strand of skin that was hanging down
she had managed to peel the skin from her tummy to all the way round her front leg, ending at her chest
straight in the car to the vet
our sweet girl has been stitched up and has antibiotics and homeopathic remedies coming out of her ears (the only part of her without a cut)
we think she got tangled up in bloody barbed wire inside the bushes, the cry i heard was probably not talulla but in fact beanie :(
i feel awful as i never risk my girls by letting them off to run free on land that i do not know and trust
foolish, foolish me
i must remember to always, always trust my instincts - i said halfway round that i should put bean on her lead as she was going slightly loopy ........
the other sadness is the departure of Mr Afterburn :(
this is all that is left of him.....
he is a very healthy eater, putting us to shame with his diet and exercise!!!
the house today is quiet - no smiley face as i look up from my laptop, nobody to drink the yuckky green lemon tea.....
come back soon Mr A - we miss you loads x
beanie would like Uncle Philip to know that she has managed to lift her bruised and battered head enough to play with her new toy
brought for the wee girl by her favourite Uncle after the scary accident
a girl can never have too many handbags!
this is Bean today
slowly working through the anaesthetic, eating, sleeping, little toilet breaks and nothing else
needless to say we did not visit puppers this weekend
as i type he is undergoing a test at the vets to confirm that he is healthy (liver shunt test - very important in Deerhounds that this test is done before you part with large sums of money)
we hope that we can bring him home at the weekend - but it will all depend on the little bean
heal quickly beanie x
