My cousin Arik his mummy Sara and daddy David, have been here all week. and on the very first evening, I managed to rip out my claw. Not a dew claw, one of my proper claws. It bled lots and made Mummy do something funny. She said these words I didn't understand, and was running around everywhere.
Daddy and aunty Sara, bandaged it up, but the next day it was still bleeding, so they took me to the vet. I ended up with two visits, and I felt really strange when I woke up after whatever they'd done to me. The vet said I have a problem with my blood clotting, which is why it wouldn't stop. I wasn't very well for about three days. My foot hurt and I felt poorly too. Mummy said she was worried because I was so quiet, not at all like myself. She says I'm normally a crazy girl.
I've been sad because I couldn't do any of the interesting things they've done. The vet man said I mustn't walk on my foot, so while they've had fun, I've missed out.
I did get to go for a ride in the motorhome yesterday though. We went to a place called Glastonbury, which aunty Sara said is "Witch Central." She and Mummy looked in all the shops and bought some crystal things. It was so nice to have a change of environment. I was able to have a little walk, but not very far.
Daddy took me out this morning for a short walk too, which was nice.
It's been a funny sort of week. We went to the Pets at Home shop one day, but Daddy took me out again because I peed on the floor. I didn't mean to, but there were lots of smells which made me just need to pee on them. Then we went to the garden centre that sells tasty dog treats and Mummy got some pigs' ears.
Then Mummy, Arik and Aunty Sara went for a walk late one night. They were gone for ages, and when they got back, aunty Sara had a bad knee. She said she'd fallen over, but that her and Mummy were sitting in the road laughing lots. I wouldn't laugh lots if I fell over! People are funny sometimes, I don't always understand them
It's their last day today and I'm sad, but I hope they'll come back when I'm better so I can make up for all the things I've missed this week.
When I hurt my foot, the nurse at the vets weighed me and everyone said I need to lose weight. I was 36 kilos, and I should be around 32, so Mummy says when I'm better, I'll have longer walks and less food. WHAT? LESS FOOD? Nooooooo! I love my food. Mummy said she'll still give me treats, but healthy ones instead. That means raw carrot and apple, instead of sausages and cheese, oh no!
I've got to go back to the vets on Monday to have my bandage off. I'll let you know how I get on.
Here's a photo Mummy took just now of me and Arik.
Love and licks, Cherry xx
