Good / bad

Today, the vet came to have another look at Bugs.

The good news is that she has pronounced him successfully medicated, so a) it is bone spavins and b) we'll start bringing him back into work tomorrow. This injection will wear off in a few months, after which we'll have the longer-lasting one that should just need repeating once a year until the bones fuse (hopefully not too long!).

The bad news is that part of the way he demonstrated that was by going 'you want me to trot from one one of the school to the other? it'd be much quicker if I just flung all my legs into the air and then ran at full speed!'

Well, *actually* the bad news is the fact that my leg was in the way of one of his feet when he did the first part of that.

Sigh. Just as the bruise on my other leg was fading....

(Mrs Next Door came over to see how the vet visit went whinge about her useless boyfriend. When I hobbled out onto the patio to talk to her, she gave me a look and said "Oh, not again?")
