Spring is well and truly here. Wild bluebells are shooting up everywhere. The golf course covered in them.
A particularly large gull sitting on the roof of a car gets the full on glare treatment from Sophie. The gull is not concerned. It receives the first 'shriek' of the day.
Down on the beach a friendly hyper active mutt runs rings around the family diva . Sophie tries to give chase but wet sand and two metal knees work against her. The hyper active mutt disappears - at high speed - in pursuit of its master.
The growths ( not one but three - one on the muzzle, one behind an ear and one on her back ) aren't malignant. The vet says that removing them will need a general anesthetic. Sophie doesn't seem bothered by them. We'll keep an eye on things but don't really want her to face surgery unless she has to. She's already had quite enough for one lifetime.
