When You’re A Dog

Monday is a Bank Holiday which brings another football game, which this time Derby lose. As it’s a Bank Holiday the weather is miserable and almost everyone but us has a few snow showers. We don’t get them until Tuesday when there are on-off flurries throughout the day and the evening park session is in almost blizzard conditions.

This is after the Lad has his booster at the Vets, who are still operating a draconian system where no one is allowed inside the building, which is in complete contrast to my X-Ray at the hospital last week. The Lad has to go in on his own which he has no problem with as he disappears with the young female vet without even a glance behind. When she returns with him she says how friendly he was and that he tried to sit on her knee when she was typing up his notes. You can get away with things like that when you’re a dog.

I did turn down their offer of the up-the-nose kennel cough vaccine but was tempted to say yes just to see how they’d cope particularly if I sent both dogs in for it. It took three of us to hold down MD last time.

Talking of my X-Ray, my doctor calls to say it shows wear and tear on my knee but to see how physio goes. I already know how it will go.

Meanwhile L’s daily parcels continue to arrive. It’s a good job I am still working from home although perhaps not for much longer. Work have announced a new office return date of 19th April which I’m going to try to ignore.

On Friday L drags me out of bed for a 6:30am run\walk e.g. post the Lad’s breakfast but he isn’t invited obviously. We do 5.5km which L is ecstatic about. Unfortunately it doesn’t do my knee any good and I feel faint afterwards. I should probably have warmed up first. My new physio won’t be impressed. However I still manage to walk the boys although this makes me fifteen minutes late for work.

Friday is also when my parents have their second jab and L’s parents have theirs the next day when I cycle to my parents' again to watch Derby lose again.

Having (sort of) recovered from Friday’s run\walk, L and I do it all over again on Sunday.
