Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works is running a pets on quilts competition on Facebook and it would be lovely if those of you who have a Facebook account would go and vote for Salley's cat, Polo. Salley told me that she employs Polo to do her basting but I think it's more that Polo deigns to help. After all, we all know you can't make cats do anything they don't want to!
Here's a photo of Polo helping. Or maybe she's supervising...
|Please vote for me!|
The links for the competition are here and here. I'm not sure which link is the best to use (but I think it's the first - please be patient as I imagine the photos may take a while to load) as I don't have a Facebook account...all you have to do is 'like' the photo of Polo, if indeed she's your favourite. (Subtle hint: she'd better be!) Thank you!
Now, so you get over the shock of seeing a cat on a blog belonging to a dog I'll redress the balance...
Archie is feeling much brighter and really appreciates all your kind comments about him.
|Am I getting that biscuit or what?!|
Sorry about the 'boy' bit on show...I tried using Picmonkey to, ahem, find a disguise but everything I did just highlighted matters instead! I don't think there's anything wrong with the photo but perhaps I'm biased!
The vet's best guess was that the cold, damp weather has made his creaky knees painful. She said they're not the worst she's ever felt in a dog his age (he'll be thirteen in February-ish. It's hard to know the month for definite as he's a rescue dog but as he was in the same rescue centre as a puppy it's as accurate an age as you're going to get for a rescue dog!) but just because they don't feel horrific doesn't mean they're not painful. He's on Tramadol (again!) for ten days and she said if that didn't perk him up then he'd need a blood test to check on his liver. Fortunately, he's already feeling much perkier and, although he's on a long lead for the next week or so, he's thoroughly enjoying his walks and he's going up and down stairs as normal, which he wasn't doing on Tuesday/Wednesday.
Just to make sure the canine/feline balance is back to normal here is a collection of photos of Archie
|It's lovely and cosy in here...|
There, balance redressed!
Please don't forget to vote for Polo - thank you!!
P.S. I'm sorry I haven't replied to all your lovely comments from my last post - I will reply, promise!
