He's a fighter.
Thank you for all your best wishes for Bob. Not only do the members of the local rugby team know him by name but so do all the village pre-schoolers and an eclectic mix of bloggers around the world. Not bad going for a six year old Polish Lowland Sheepdog boy.
Bob passed a quiet night. The youngest of the vets was in early to check up on him. His tail wagged when he saw her. A conference call when all three of them make it into the surgery at eight. They are all absolutely firm in their belief that he should go to the clinic in Toulouse for another two nights. Not a very pleasant thing for the family fellow to go through but it's good news that our local vets aren't willing to give up hope yet. A change from their outlook yesterday.
It's a weekend staff at the clinic. 'The Font' is allowed to give the family fellow a walk round the car park. Bob has a long pee - his first since yesterday afternoon. As long as he wants to fight and isn't in pain we'll be there. The district nurse says Angus can go over to visit Bob tomorrow . " Just don't pick him up '' she says sternly.
