Where does the time fly to?

I didn't realise how long it's been since my mum last wrote in's been ages and ages. I've not been too well either this last couple of weeks. I have been proper poorly but I think I'm OK now though!

Mum thought I had a grass seed in my ear. I was shaking my head, scratching and just generally rubbing my ears along anything and in fact I was getting in quite a mess about it all. So off we went to see Julius at the vets.

Julius is always very kind to me and this visit was no exception except that no way was he coming near my ears with that pointy thing! Oh no, no way Jose! So he said that he would have to sedate me to have a good old look around and that I was to go in the next morning. So at 8.30am dad dropped me off there and waited for the call to go collect me.

Mum was really worried and couldn't wait to get me. She was to come after 3pm and she arrived on time. I was fine by time she got there and the lovely nurse was sad to see me go home as she said I was a perfect patient. Pah, I just wanted to get home to my bed, my sofa and my mum and dads bed. Boy did it feel good to get home and have some food. I was starved from midnight the night before and I could have eaten a scabby horse. I was given freshly cooked chicken and some nice fresh water. Cliffys mum had sent some lovely chews home with dad and I was given one ot those too. Thanks Cliffy!

It seems there wasn't anything in my ear other than an infection starting up. With my big floppy ears it keeps the insides of my ears very warm and that's just perfect for brewing up infections. So I am having ear drops twice a day and I hate having them. Dad chases me all over the house as I am getting wise to how they both approach me's nearly always one arm behind their backs holding the drops and one ready to grab me. I ain't silly and run as fast as I can! So I have to go back on Saturday to see Julius and make sure everything is OK.

I hope I will be OK as mum and dad are babysitting Bailey for a few days....I'll have to be better so I can defend my bones!

Hi Loui,
We hear ya about the ear thing. We hate anyone going anywhere near our ears with anything. I had an ear infection when mum and dad first brought me home. On several ocassions Ive had drops but it never really seems to go away. Yes big floppy ears are a problem sometimes.

Hey Loui, My ears aren't as big and floppy as yours, but I get ear infections like that too. I hate them!

Your ear infection sounds terrible. I hate it when my ears itch. Hope you feel better soon.

awwwww! Loui, I feel for you, poor chap. I hope you feeling a bit better now though, I know how you feel about being messed about with when you are poorly. I run away as well.

Jeannie says she can hardly type this as she has bad hay fever today and its all in her eyes, making them itchy! I thought she was crying!

Get well soon jy friend, love and healing licks, Marvin xxxxx

Oh Loui! There is nothing worse than an ear infection. I hope you are not in any pain. Snickers had infected ears when we rescued her. She was a little wobbly on the feet, then. I wonder if she was dizzy?

Hey Loui, sorry to hear about your ear stuff. Hope it's cleared up by now. It's funny how humans think we don't know what they're up to when they try and sneak up on us with drops or medicine. It's the same when they try and disguise nasty pills in something tasty! J x

oohh is your ear better now? I had a horrible big grass seed in my ear and the doggy doctor had to make me sleep for a bit, but I'm all ok now. Mum says I'm such a big baby when the doggy doctor looks in my ears. She should be grateful I'm good at taking the ear drops!
