Thought I should let you know about my latest meeting up with vets. On Monday I went to this hospital in Guildford. It's apparently been on television, but I don't watch that programme. I was there all day and I didn't like it. Everyone was very nice and said I was a very sweet little dog and very well behaved, which I am and was. But when Mum and Dad left me I had to put up with a blood test and something stuck in my leg and then I fell asleep. When I woke up I was a bit confused and when Mum and Dad came to take me home I wasn't sure who they were at first. But then I got home and cuddled up with them on the settee and everything was alright again. It seems that when I was asleep I had the CAT scan thing which took lots of pictures of my insides. Yesterday morning I felt a lot like my old self and let Mum hand feed me little bits of corned beef and tongue and cheese. I have managed to persuade Mum and Dad to feed me human food instead of dog food which I have rather gone off.
Anyway, now they've got all the pictures of my insides, I have decided not to go to vet's ever again. I think I'm going to the White Hart at lunchtime today which will be nice.
PS Dad got a couple of emails from the hospital yesterday and he and Mum looked very serious and a bit sad. But I can't read so I don't know what was in them. Mum and Dad have said that I won't have to go back to the hospital or to the vet which makes me very happy.

I'm feeling quite a lot better, now that I have recovered from my visit to the vet hospital. I am still a bit tired at times and don't want to walk as far sometimes, so Dad and I turn around at a house called Tanglewood, which is halfway to the village, and come home, rather than go all the way for the paper in the morning with Mum. I feel that I am doing Dad a favour too, 'cos I used to worry about him having to walk too far as he is really quite old. I am enjoying the nice food that Mum cooks for me in the evening and the tongue and corned beef that I get for breakfast.
I had lunch with my Aunties yesterday at the White Hart and had lots of chips. I'm glad that they've stopped not giving me chips! Mum and Dad had lamb for supper last night and I had the leftovers this morning. I really like lamb. Dad says it's my corgi blood that gives me a taste for sheep. I keep telling him that I am a Jack Russell, not a corgi. But he just says that I am from Wales and just look at my ears. Hugh!
More next week.

So glad you are feeling a bit better Flint. Good to hear you are keeping an eye on your Dad and escorting him safely home! Getting older can be tricky and sometimes we get ailments and we can't do much about that. However, there are always good days to be had and lots of treats. Chips at the pub?! Well done sir, well done, keep it up! bravo1.gif

Remember I told you that I had trained Mum and Dad to give me human food? Well, a few days after I came home from hospital, Mum started to feed me some little bits of sausage at teatime. They are very tasty and I have found that my appetite has returned to how it was before I felt ill. So, now, I really look forward to meal times. There must be something in the sausage!
The other day I had a super wheeze. Because I had been eating up with such enthusiasm, Mum and Dad decided to try me back on dog food. They heated it up and put it down for my tea. I sniffed at it suspiciously and, looking pathetically up at them, declining to eat it. They immediately cooked me up some lamb mince and biscuits, which was much better and I cleared my plate before returning to the sofa. But the best bit was that, later on when they were watching television, I went back to the kitchen and ate up all the dog food. Hee hee. Don't reckon that I'll get away with that too often!

Ooooh its so good to hear that your appetite is getting better again Flint. You certainly have Mum and Dad perfectly trained. Perhaps you could release a video for the other doggies so they know how to train their humans!!! You know we have all been very worried about you don't you? You are a special little lad who always keeps us laughing and happy with most of your blogs. Keep it up fella you deserve it. Much love xxxxxxxxxx Kiss of love.gif
