An open letter to a vet

Hello, I'm the blonde from last night. The one that went mute and just sobbed uncontrollably.

I thought i should explain, you see we were at the parentals about to have a fabulous supper, The Hound frolicking in the garden, when all of a sudden a blood-curdling scream emanated from outside.

It seems The Boy Wonder had somehow knocked his leg, and was lying there unresponsive and seemingly unable to move at all.

This probably went on for 10 minutes, but in my world it was hours, so you see that's why i was sobbing, and mute, and hyperventilating and stayed up until 2am just to check he was breathing.

Admittedly whilst The Captain was on the phone to you arranging for you to come out, he did just get up and gamble all the way up to the house and by the time he got to your surgery he was more interested in the treats you sell than anything else.

He's fine this morning you can see from the picture, a bit stiff, and slow, and whimpering. The whimpering seemingly sated by pigs in blankets from the butchers.

Yours with gratitude
Miss P.

Also enormous thanks to The Mother Hen and The Captain, without whom I'm sure The Hound would be fine, but i would definitely have had a heart attack.

also The Mother Hen has a new twist on Toad-in-the-Hole, just when you thought it couldn't get any better, it does.

Sounds horribly familiar, you have our sympathies.

really sorry to hear that. but relieved to know he (and therefore you) are alright..x

Stressful times! Glad he's on the mend, and it hasn't blunted his appetite for pig based products too much.

God no sooner is Valentine's day over that the hound is in peril.

When we take the Lab or the krazy kat to the vet I'm not allowed to be in the examining room.

I share your insanity.

Glad you're both feeling better.

Sorry you (and he) had to go through that, but I'm glad he's getting better and I look forward to more about toad in the hole, something we in the States know little about.

Miss Pickering said...

Thank you for your well wishes.

The Boy Wonder is loving all the attention and send his regards to you all.

The words "drama queen" have been banded about a bit.....

Also Jen, i will have The Mother Hen remake the toad, and blog recipe.

Late as usual. Glad to hear he is okay; mine regularly does 'dog at death's door' only to make a liar of me at the vets.

Oh no! So glad to hear the hound is safe and sound and basking in adoration. <3
