Good News and Not So Good News.
Marleen is sitting upright by the window scanning the road, looking for signs of the return of Spike and Richie.
Gareth's Photos From Wales.
Richie has taken Spike off to his appointment with the Orthopaedic specialist, hope that the report won't be so bad, and hope that the news will be relatively good.
Want so much for our little doggie to be getting better, that is what we both hope to hear.
Neither of us has liked our little Spike not being able to do everything he used to do, feel strange, not seeing a mad wee face staring up at me from the edge of my bed.
Until the inflammation in the knee really got to him, Spike was 100% no, not true; he was there for 110 %.
It was a month ago; now, that we really noticed something was not alright with our lovely Spike.
Heartbroken seeing him right now and knowing what he has been like right up to the moment we realised that something was not ok with our wee doggie.
Richie noticed Spike was not alright in the park, when he was uncharacteristically pushing to go home and go home very quickly.
Something he would have to be totally cream crackered to give up and push for Richie to put him on his lead and put him in the bike bags and take him home.
Richie has just phoned from outside the specialist’s office to say it is not serious as he had thought, but Spike has to stay in the cage or bench as they call it here, for a month.
Poor wee dog seems his kneecap is loose and the old back injury is playing up again, the specialist thinks that a month’s rest will do him good.
Not nice news that we have to lock our little hero up for a month but if it will help him then I am all for it.
Think Richie needs to get some big bones from the pet shop for Spike to distract him from his incapacity and imprisonment and to keep him from going nuts when Richie takes Marleen for her walks.
They are back; Spike came walking in like the returning hero, not looking forward to Richie getting the metal cage from our shed.
Whatever we will make it as happy a time for the wee dog as possible, it is a grey day brighter since we know Spike can get better.
I intend to relax and enjoy the film reviews shortly on BBC Radio 5 with Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo.
