Time Out


My heart isn't here.
It isn't on the Flower Show either or anything else for that matter.

Tomorrow, I think we may go and watch a dinosaur movie as a distraction
And I think I won't blog anything for a day or so.
Meg is deteriorating, I know that- but I will continue trying with food and antibiotics and with cleaning up shit.
Chris has worked so hard 6 days out of 7 this week and bless him he is away all of next week.....so it's up to me to review things after the course of antibiotics finish.

I know in the great scheme of things it's only a story about an old Welsh Terrier.
But she's my old Welsh Terrier........and it hurts....

Back in a while ......ok?

  4. My thoughts are with you John. Spend all the time you can with Meg, she's not just an old Welsh Terrier, she's one of your babies, and it hurts like Hell. Give her lots of cuddles and neck nuzzles from me.
    With love. X

  7. I'm so sorry. I had to put my beloved almost 17 year old cat down three weeks ago and I'm still bereft. Still and still maybe forever. So very sorry.

  34. I don't think there is anyone who stops by your blog who thinks that your beautiful and precious Meg is "just an old Welsh Terrier." If they do, then it's really quite sad that they just don't understand... Take care, okay?

  43. Somehow they let us know when it is time, and we intuitively know in our hearts when it is. My heart is breaking for you, but hopefully she will give it another spark. Sometimes they do. Tell Ms. Meg that she has a cheering squad around the world sending her lots of love! Sending prayers to all.
