The Journey Home

We leave Broadstairs very soon. There is a " fast train" from the coast to London then a short walk from the gothic splendour of St Pancras to the dumpy boredom of Euston.
We shall be home by early afternoon.
Yesterday I received a message from the kennels telling me that William was " non too happy" His skin itch seems worse and apparently he looks listless and tired. The kennel owner is more than trust worthy and will discuss him with the her vet ( which incidentally is our vet) and then act accordingly.
Old dogs,! They break your heart. .

  1. Have a safe journey back.
    Knowing you have a completely trustworthy kennels makes all the difference to a trip away doesn't it? I hope William will be OK. X

  3. They break your heart long after they're gone but having great memories helps. We had our Harry for 16+ years!

  4. Have you tried a " grain free" diet for the little fella? It might be worth a try if you haven't. My Yorkie is also on fish and veg kibble ( Fishmongers Finest.....they do a " senior" version) and doesn't seem to be getting the skin problems that she used to. Hope he will be OK. x

    1. We switched to grain and rice free diet for our dog too and her skin is much improved. The ezcema and dandruff have cleared completely.

    2. We buy Purizon and Taste of the Wild online but I will look at Fishmongers too. Thank you.

  5. Good luck.
    My heart has been shattered by rather a lot of animals. And the shards often cut me again years later.

  12. He will soon be wagging his tail when he sees you. Maybe the warm weather is upsetting his itchy skin.

  15. Safe travels . . .
    Our little one "reacts" when she "anticipates our going" . . .
    Hopefully your "coming home" will settle William a bit . . .
    Cooked carrots saved the day when ours developed skin allergies/sensitivities . . . The vet suggested the carrot thingy, plus an allergy sensitive food . . . but cooked carrots did the
    "save the day trick!"

  21. Terriers seem particularly prone to skin problems. Hope he is okay, he will be pleased to see you.

  22. Maybe you will perk him up - interesting what Sue says about skin problems because Tess suffers too (Border terrier). Yes - they break your heart but they give such love it is something we have to endure. Hope your holiday did you both good.

  23. Poor William. Be safe getting home and take care of that boy.

  24. Poor William - some extra TLC on your return will work wonders.

  25. That is what I think/hope it is ... he wants his daddies and his home and his own bed.
    He will be his old self when you bring him back home.
