Ta Muchly

Well I've bloody well missed the vet again tonight.
Played badminton with the Prof at teatime for the first time in a decade (and thought I would drop dead there and then on the court) and missed the soddin call! By the time I had rung her back, she'd left the surgery .....tomorrow I shall pin her down for sure!
Having said this, the patient in the kitchen,apart from looking mighty bored with her life, looks more or less like her normal self.
I've cooked her chicken for tea and have told her just how well loved she is! (Not many welsh bulldogs have such a fan club as she I whispered. ) she listened to what I had to say but continued to scoff down her fillets with one eye on the cat flap in case Albert should appear.

I do love the old girl so very much.

In the great scheme of things the fate of a geriatric sex obsessed bulldog shouldn't be high up on the agenda.....but I am touched just how many people have checked up on the old slag!
Thank you.

  13. Call me whatever you like. The main reason I worry about Winnie is you.

    It's odd when you think about it. I don't know what your and the Prof's plans are for the future you have hinted at. When my luck changed both our cats made it so much "easier" for us by one letting herself hit by a car, the other, nine months later, having to be put down due to inoperable skin cancer. Talk about timing.

  14. PS Wish I hadn't allowed myself to be reminded. Am tearful. It's ok. No matter. Miss them dreadfully, both in their own ways. They'll never know, up there in mousers' heaven.

  15. Winnie's health is directly related to your mental health. So, I am concerned.

  23. It's no surprise that you became exhausted after repeatedly whacking your shuttlecock.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Of course we love her. And wish her well.

  25. Arrange for a man in a uniform with a tool belt to come by and if she doesn't respond, rush her to the vet! xo Suz

  26. Oh I hope Winnie is soon well. Probably with your love and adoration, she's halfway there already. I'm surprised that while he and Albert are BFF's, she doesn't trust him not to steal her yummy tea. Give her a soft fondle for me. xx

  31. Now, isn't that just Sod's Law again! The only time you con't take a call is when they ring! I loved Suz's suggestion - she's really very ill if she doesn't respond to that! Hope you make contact with the ellusive vet soon.

  37. Sorry, I wondered why Camille was talking about Winnie on Mitchell's blog. But I was the idiot who was lost.
    I'll try again, but not before blowing more kisses Winnie's way. While dressed up as a tradie.

  38. We are very interested in one old Welsh Bulldog. You have let us check in on the goings on in your village and I think we've all bonded to your story. We are pulling for Winnie!

  39. Good news that Winnie is eating well.

    Badminton?

  42. Sending good thoughts your way. Hoping Winnie feels better (the lovely chicken dinner will surely help!).

    ReplyDelete
  43. She's currently just about the biggest concern in my life - no kidding! Do tell her I'm carrying her around in my heart wrapped up in the hope that she'll soon be as right as rain again, if that's not too much to want.

  44. You just know we all care heaps. Good to hear you & the Prof getting some down time..things seem to keep piling on so a bit of letting off steam is good for mind & body 😊

  45. Old slag? Oh no she's not ! She's the gorgeous Winnie to all her adoring fans. Big hugs for her.

  46. Another fan here. Just got home from work and had to check in straight away. So pleased to hear that Winnie seems to be rallying.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow! On the mend. Nature's often a great healer. Maybe missing the vet was blessing in disguise.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love for Winnie puts things in perspective. I wish it would make her well ... and do the same for the world.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I hope when you finally get to speak to the vet the news is good for Winnie x

    ReplyDelete
  50. All the best to her and hope you hear from vet. We have elderly Tom cat with kidney failure. Stepped in a pool of cat sick with bare foot this morning. Now having to give saline injections to old boy. What joy.

  51. Badminton? well done....just thinking about exercise makes me resolve to do it and then..... nothing...so your get up and go is admirable. Winnie scoffing her food with one eye on the catflap is a sweet picture......

    ReplyDelete
  52. We do adore Winnie. Give her kisses from GG. When my older kids were younger, we kept the Badminton 🏸 net up throughout the summer months. I throughly enjoy croquet too. Aww lovely memories of summers past.
