My Dog

Me and Blue boy, our Weimarana

Bizarre topic to be speaking about, I know. But seriously my dog is great. I have decided to dedicate this post to him as I have spent the majority of the morning calming him down at the vets. As he appears to have a bit of a tendancy for eating things, you could imagine our worry when he fell ill last week. Our first thought "Oh my word he has eaten a corn on the cob again!" You see, to help you understand that last sentance. 6 months ago he had to have an operation to remove a corn on the cob from his bowell.It's true I'm not lying. It would appear that behind our back our dog tucked in to a KFC variety box and failed to digest or even chew the corn side order. It was a real worry as goodness knows how long it had been jammed in there and what it was doing to him. But one day he became so ill that an emergency op had to be performed and to our suprse "SWEET BLOOMIN CORN!" Shock shock. But now he is all better apart from a minor bowell infection. That's the cause of the vet trip this morning. Much to my relief. So swallow something un-swallowable he did not. Joy! Some antibiotics will do the trick.

Isn't it strange how quickly you form a bond with your pet. No matter what animal it is. If it is in your owner ship and your care then you just fall in love with it. I could not imagine my life without Blue now. Home would not be home without him living in it.
- When I go home after work I love to hear him bounding down the strais, skidding on the laminate floor and smashing into the front door. All that just so he can see me.
- I love how during the night he snuggles up in between us and does anything just to be near us. Even knowing that our ankles are by him, makes him happy.
- He sits and he waits for his food like a true gentlman. You can see him dribbling as he sits there and wait for the command. "It's yours" Goodness, the second he heres those words he bounds face first into his food bowl.
He is just a gentle giant is our Blue Boy and whether it sounds funny or not "I love him!"

Oh and yes Blue does wear a hoodie when he is cold. Keeps him warm (And trendy) of course :-)
