Margaret,

Now that the cyst has been opened, I believe it will be only a short time before you'll see better things from Lucy's bg's!

Still working on how to clone Henry!

Goodness, I get busy for a few days and look at all you two have been through!!

Congratulations on successfully home testing! I'm one of the ones who took a few weeks to get it sorted out.

How's Lucy doing today?

I will go check her thread and might copy some of these posts to it if the information is not there already.

Hi Margaret,
I hope things are better today, my dogs used to get the cheatgrass between their toes, I was always checking their paws, surprising how sharp things like that are.

Thanks Dolly,
Lucy is a bit better I have to keep the baby sock on as she would just lick it constantly I think the antibiotics are beginning to kick in she had a better night last night. They don't think it was a grass seed as she has had this before quite a time ago though. I have my doubts as you say the grass seed
or something has jabbed it to trigger it off. As long as it heals up I will get her bg back on track again.
Hope Niki is well Dolly.

LOL

Jack was licking a paw the other night and I put a sock on him - that's what I always did with Chris and it was like he forgot he had a foot once I put the sock on it. I didn't really think it would work with young, hyper, mouthy Jack but it did! He slept the night through with his sock on until it fell off on one of his trips on and off the bed. He didn't lay a tooth on it. I was shocked!!

Yes Natalie the baby sock is good but she still has a lick at the sock, no wonder we call her Lucifer when she is naughty
She is a lot better but it is still a bit raw I think by the weekend we will see a big improvement. Then I will get back to my blood testing again (I have sent for the One Touch Ultra soft single blood sampler) which I am hoping will be quieter.
