Well it's been a weekend of mixed emotions. Thank you once again to everyone who left comments last week. I have had my first taste of blogging and the fear I initially felt is starting to give way to excitement.
A special thank you to my gorgeous husband whose amazing comments and support have brought tears to my eyes (and I hear I am not alone in this!) I guess I have approached this with my usual caution in not wanting revealing too much about myself, and then I read the beautiful words from one "Raymond J" and was reminded how important it is to just be yourself! (I have so much to learn from him!)
Anyway - back to the weekend. I had grand visions of doing a proper feature on our beautiful dog "Maggie" and to give you a little insight into how amazing she is, but she has been pretty sick recently and the last few days have been pretty bad.
I took her to the vet on Friday and he suspects she is in pain. He gave her an injection that was supposed to help her get through the weekend a little easier, but I think she's worse. Am just waiting for the vet to open up this morning and I will have to take her in for another assessment.
She is a standard poodle (isn't she gorgeous!) and we have had her for exactly two years today. We think she is about 4 or 5 years old and we got her from a family who could not look after her anymore. We believe she was born with a bow in her front leg (which is quite distinct when she has shorter hair) and we were warned that she could develop arthritis early, but I was hoping it would hold off a bit longer. Anyway, I suspect that's what's going on at the moment, but we will have to wait for confirmation I guess.
Despite our concern for Maggie, we did have some exciting developments with another big project we have had on the go for some time (and I have not had the chance to introduce you to yet), but will save that for later in the week. There's only so much you can read in one sitting!!
