Tuesday 22nd March 2016 – The Indignity

Oh the indignity of being asked to pee into a small pot first thing in a morning. Can’t a boy even pee in peace? I know we need to get to the bottom of what’s wrong with me, but there has to be an easier way to do it. Anyway, the deed is done and our Mistress has kindly said she will drop it into the vet’s on her way past this morning.

I’m still not feeling great, so I hope there is some improvement.

working washing machine at the moment. For a multitude of reasons the working one that was spare is waiting to be plumbed in in replacement of the one that broke down a week ago. It has now got as far as the house from the garage, but our Mistress needs to install it later. I shall be on paw with a camera at the ready in case things don’t go to plan!
