Firstly Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope you have all had as stress free a week as is possible over the holidays. I don’t know about any of you but for me the holidays are a week long marathon of family visits and work. I have such a good time though which is the main thing 🙂
It was also my birthday yesterday, long story short it was a bit of a disaster. So I had a snooze with Zephy:
He is such a snuggle bear, I absolutely adore him!
I was working a lot over the holiday period but it was relatively quiet on a few occasions, so I tried to order a wee waterproof jacket for Echo. Despite being a breed of dog designed for working outdoors, he is not waterproof in the slightest! After a walk in the rain he always looks so cold and miserable so I thought a wee jacket might help him out in the worst of the weather. Well, I put faith in Ben to take the measurements for Echo and when he sent them to me I did think “That sounds a bit big”, But due to the coat I had an eye on being in the sale I thought I’d just go with it. Well, The coat is a bit big for Echo…
So I am now in the process of ordering another wee coat so that they match. I’m sure Zephy will appreciated being a bit warmer on those soggy days.
Update on Echo’s health
As I mentioned in a previous post, Echo has had a few lumps that will not go away. In order to avoid stressing Echo out too much the vet didn’t want to go for any invasive techniques too early. He was found to have a wee bit of a temperature so we have tried a coarse of antibiotics (although I personally think it was more likely to be a viral thing if it was an infection; but thought I’d stick it through). We finished the coarse but his glands are all still up. After a further consult with the vet, the only way to know what is happening is to take a biopsy but she doesn’t think it is anything to worry about. So we have decided to go for the wait and see approach. He is still as happy as ever, the only difference being that he loves a wee cuddle:
Zephy is not happy about the kids playing in the street….they are clearly a threat.
