Tired But Happy.

Ben Haverman.

I am feeling very tired today and so is Richie after the week we have had, yesterday was very stressful.

For both Richie and for Spike undergoing hours of examination and for myself waiting patiently at home for them to come home.

What a relief to get Richie’s call that they were on the way home and he had good news about Spike for me.

It has been very worrying watching Spike walking getting worse and then stopping practically altogether on Thursday.

Thinking it might be a neurological problem only increased our anxiety considerably; Spike seemed to having spasms, almost thought it could be MS or Parkinson’s.

Hearing it was a hernia seemed wonderful news compared to the other things had worried it could be.

When Richie got home and told me the diagnosis it felt like the best news ever, funny that as a hernia means an operation.

Better that then the news that there was nothing they could do for our lovely Spike and the vet would have had to put him to sleep yesterday.

We are both happy that something can be done and Spike’s problem will be dealt with very soon.

So happy to hear that Spike will soon be on the mend. Amazing isn't it how much our fur-babies mean to us?!

Hi Herrad,
Sorry I haven't been around much again, there has been lots going on. We have had a wet room done and we have been away on the canals again. But I always think of you and Richie, I hope he is well too.
That is such great news to hear that Spike is OK. Well a hernia is still not fun, but not as serious as you were thinking.
Please give him lots of cuddles from all my lot!!
Love & hugs to you all

Hi Muff,
You are right they mean alot to us.
We are very happy about Spike not having anything that is not treatable.

Hi Mary,
It is excellent news isn't it, we are very happy.

Hi Amelia,
Good to see your comment, brilliant to hear you have your wet room now.
Bet your canal holiday was very enjoyable for you both.
The news that Spike could be treated was an incredible relief we really thought we were losing him.
Horrible thought quite unbearable, poor little dog has been in such pain and we never realised, he is a very brave fellow.
Richie is always tired but otherwise good.

Thanks to you three lovely friends for coming by, appreciate your comments.
Have a good weekend.
