All of the illness, and all of the activities too

Hello everyone!

The year of poorly canines has been continuing…Freya’s toe seems better and she’s back to running again while Laird is fully recovered and back to being a teenager *sigh*, but Bronte has been showing a whole range of unusual symptoms – our very own medical mystery.

After lots of tests we have the beginnings of some answers, but still a few more to do. The good news is so far nothing’s untreatable. I’m waiting to find out if there is any bad news!

In between living at the vets, and the usual WCC stuff, I’ve also started teaching my yearly Research Skills & Statistics students (online MSc course).

So for anyone who hasn’t heard back from me recently, that’s why, and I do appreciate your patience.

But as always, life does indeed go on, and we have plenty of things you can do with your dog right now.

I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!
