Good news from the vet

It was Josie that had to go, not me. Hoorah!

Mum says surely the good news is that Josie had her check up and she's all healthy. She's a little lighter than she was last time they weighed her which mum thinks is all that running around she's been doing and they are happy with her.

Which is more than Josie was with them!

She did meet a puppy called Teddy who is smaller than her and was even more scared as he reckoned he had just seen the largest dog in the world walk through the waiting room. They got to see that dog leave and Josie reckons he was more horse-sized than dog-sized. No wonder little Teddy was huddled in his mum's arms.

On their way out Josie did have a quick chat with Dracula - he is the rather handsome black cat who lives at our vets. Josie had seen him put an inquisitive and very lively Springer Spaniel in his place and she wanted to know the secret.

"You just have to show them who's boss," explained Dracula, as mum let him through the door. "A bit of whacky paw works wonders." It must be strange having so many other animals in your home but he is used to it.

Anyway Josie was extremely pleased to be away from all those other animals and safely home and the basket is gone away.

There was some sad news on Sunday from our neighbours. Smudge has gone to the Bridge. He became unwell quite suddenly and they did everything they could but he had unexpected heart problems. We don't really know his past - he just arrived in the areas and next door took him on. He and I never got on well enough to chat about the old days - but at least he had a forever home for his last years and he was very much loved.

Mum thought I would be pleased as he did bully me but I know how much he will be missed by Leo and Jasper so I am sorry for their loss.
