Letting us know.
Yesterday, Bob got six walks, two trips in the car and a long Mano a Mano on the garden table. Seems that canine anxiety cannot be dispelled by displacement activity. The bond between brother and sister is clearly very deep. He knows she's in pain so perhaps his symptoms are stress related.
Sophie was wonderfully 'regular' on Wednesday and Thursday. This was not the case on Friday.
She let 27 hours pass before letting anything else pass. Early in the morning Sophie announces that 'this is the time'. She howls. PONs are not big dogs but their lungs must take up 90% of their body. ' Look on the bright side ' says 'The Font ' at 1.40 am. ' At least she let us know '.
Thursday was wet, Friday was cloudy but today is brilliant sunshine. Being able to sit outside will hopefully make the reestablishment of a routine easier for her.
Bob paddles in the waterfall, fishes ineptly for minnows and finds some badger poo. Sophie sleeps. Things are once again on the up.
