This morning just after 6 am saw my husband and me set off to Bristol with Treacle and Toby to have their MRI scans on the BVA/KC scheme (Information about this scheme can be found on yesterdays blog). Millie also came with us, as we planned to go to Blaise Castle Estate (which is in Bristol and is a lovely place to walk dogs) to pass the time whilst waiting to pick Treacle and Toby up.
The weather was a bit dire, but for dogs, wet means more scent, so Millie was not perturbed by the damp and mud. She even got to chase a squirrel up a tree.
In the above slide show you will see Millie back at the car from her walk looking very wet and muddy. Then miraculously a few hours later after a rub off with a towel and a sleep in the back of the car whilst we got a bite to eat, she is clean again.
The video is Millie and me showing David, my husband that we had gone the right way and eventually getting back on the right path. We had decided to walk up over the top of Blaise Castle Estate which found us on the border of a golf course and when my husband took the video he had for the last five minutes been saying, "I'm not sure we are going in the right direction ?"
Hopefully in the video you can see how wet it was. I was wearing a waterproof coat with a quilted jacket underneath it. By the time we got back to the car the arms of the quilted jacket were saturated right through. Luckily we had come prepared for the weather with towels, spare coats and tops loaded in the car before leaving home.
We picked up Toby and Treacle from the vets around midday and got home just before 2 pm. Toby and Treacle after their anesthetic are a little tired. They have had a little supper and now are happy to be sleepy heads together. Now it's just a waiting game for the grading by the BVA of their MRI scan images.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
