The lovely Jet has been limping a lot lately and the vet feels he probably has an issue with the bones in his elbow being malaligned, rubbing together and causing inflammation. I've got to take him to the local vets shortly and he will then be driven to their HQ in North London, put under a general and then have a series of X-Ray and scan images taken so they can better determine what's going on. He'll probably need an operation poor love. Fortunately the insurance covers up to £3000 and as the scans alone cost £1300, that will help enormously.
He's such a little trooper, never once complaining and is ALWAYS excited about walks even though recently, they've had to be sedate and short. He keeps looking dolefully at me this morning because I can't feed him.... I'm trying not to make eye contact!
And here he is looking 'street' in my youngest daughter's beanie.
In the photo you can see the huge box that has appeared in my lounge. Just as I get the house all clutter free and looking just as I like it, I bring back a whole load of stuff from Mum's to sort through. Mr D and I will need to do a big session, photographing and putting various pieces on eBay as it certainly can't all stay. I have managed to give away lamps, a dehumidifier, various tools, books, wooden spoons (for batik making) and various other bits and bobs. Another big box went to the charity shop. This gives me great satisfaction that most of her things are going to a good home where they can continue to be useful.
I'll let you know how Jet gets on :)
