Poor Bran. Over the past few days the border collie has been enthusiastic for his milk bone treats but wasn’t actually eating them. I’m almost certain that, if there is such a thing as recreation, Bran was a man in his other life. Bran is a sulker. Leave Bran behind, give him a bath or even just forget that he believes he is number one and that dog will sulk. It isn’t a “ he’s a bit off” type of sulk, it is a full on I’m finding a corner, I’m turning my back and my ears will be flat on my head type of sulk and we are used to it ( that’s my reasoning for him having been male in at least one of his pre lives.) It hasn’t quite been the same over the past few days. The dog hasn’t eaten his treats and he has been strangely clingy and unusually dejected looking. Last night we examined Bran’s mouth and discovered that one of his canine teeth has apparently lost the battle, chewing just one boulder too many. One of today’s projects is going to be to find a vet that is open. Typically for our household, everything happens at the weekend or on a national holiday. What’s today ? ..a National holiday ! It is tough to think that the dog has a toothache, it must be bad if he isn’t taking his goodies !
Well, it is snowing again, the pond is already frozen over, looks really cold out there….think I will go and snuggle up in my “must have”, national craze ( so the advertisement says !) snuggle blanket. Take care, keep safe, M
