Hi girls, just a quick post to say some thank yous. First of all thanks to everyone who said Happy Birthday and Anniversary for last Thursday. Much appreciated!
I also want to thank everyone who has been kind enough to say sorry to hear about the death of my little dog, Lucy. We'll really miss her, 14 years is a long time to have a dog. In spite of some of the things that have happened to her she always loved going to the vet's. She got a broken leg while playing with my son's friend as a puppy. She had a toe removed once as it had a nasty lump that no-one noticed - Spaniels have very hairy feet and having a toe removed is apparently quite common! 7 years ago she was very ill and nearly died. She ended up on steroid tablets which were gradually cut down until she was off them competely. The vet who put her to sleep said he had never known a dog to have been so ill and yet be able to come off the steroids. Very determined little dog our Lucy. Definitely a people dog, she just loved people. In the vet's surgery at the end she was still the same. One clap and she was anybody's. As we say here in Scotland Maddy is still a bit "hingin luggit". Droopy eared doesn't give the same impression but I expect you know what I mean lol!
So thanks again everyone you've all been so kind. I wish I could thank you all individually but we're still working at Mhairi's flat. Today I've been pasting wallpaper and I'm sure some of you must know how much fun that is!
