General nattering
Same thing as the boxer chatter idea, except this one is just general banter?

The idea is that you can say something random, rather than just starting a new thread and it ends up being like a conversation? See what you think, if you don't like it, we'll just leave it xx

........................................

We have had freezing fog here the past two days, so nothing is melting and the trees are just getting thicker with the frost. I love watching the snow and this kind of weather, as long as I don't have to go out in it!

Re: General nattering
Oh enjoy the trip to Germany!!

We have had no snow and not sorry either, dont want it:ohwell:

Very bitterly cold and we have had gales so that the windows and cars are permantly covered in seasalt.

Katie is back onto antibitotics again for cystitis - blood in her urine. When we moved I contemplated keeping her with the original vets but in reality it is too far - nhearly 70 miles. Ihave registered them with a large practise about 25 miles away. They specialise in pets/exotics and farm animals and are modern and up to date.

The vet we are seeing now is requesting all Katie's records from the original vets.

I dont know if its connected or not but Katie has been very sick today, I no sooner mopped up than she was sick again - shes been swallowing continuously wanting out to eat grass or if indoors she has been licking the floor. I finally got her settled around 11pm but have withheld food She has been a very miserable little girl
:sick:

I made a huge big pot of Irish stew this morning as tomorrow [weather permitting] I have to take mum to the dentist in town so by the time we get back all I will have to do is heat the stew up for our tea.

Karen - I sent a email via your website regarding the knitted jumpers. No one has got back to me as yet? Katie [23 kilos] - not sure of size to order?, she gets terribly cold during the night and I was wanting to buy one to see if that helped her - sort of doggy pyjamas if you like:veryexcited:

love the snow!!!!! almost looks like the way the houses were when we lived in idaho....miss it!!! i didnt like driving in it tho. it doesnt snow at all in sunny southern cali, where we are anyway, one good thing is we are about 45 mins from the beach and 45 mins the other day to the mountains/snow!!!! its been cold tho!!!! they actually sell doggie snugglies!!! haha. lilly would sure hate that. i think at nite shes getting cold as shes been snuggling up to me, practically pushing me off the bed! its a queen as if there isnt any room for her!!! but she refuses to lay under the covers! she is definately enjoying being out of hte crate n sleeping with liberty and i.....i did get in trouble this am when she got out of bed early instead of waiting for the "bitch" >my sister that doesnt like dogs, esp mine< cuz she hadnt made her lunch...um she was sitting in my lap nowhere near her or her precious black clothes!!!!!

Yes, you get them from the chiller cabinet - they do sweet or plain and you just pop one on a plate for 30 seconds and its done - they are really nice too. Not sure how much they are normally, but Sainsbury's have them on special offer for 1 a pack (6 in a pack) - saves on so much mess and they are delicious!!

In the end bought pancakes [scotch ones] and they were delicious, its an excellent bakery.

One week and two days in.
He is a 'Jack Staff' in two main ways. One, turns out he is a JRT/SBT cross. And two, his tail is now permanently pointing straight up like a jack staff. Archie has settled in real well, jelled with the cat and the hoards of dogs in our local park. He is here to stay now.
Many thanks to OH who has walked the claws down(much needed) on Archie, getting him into a new routine, home, area, friends.
