We are going on holiday! The school summer holidays are flying by at a frightening speed, and last week we had a huge drama when our dog almost died. It was the worst weekend I have had in a very long time. He got admitted to the pet hospital on the Thursday, and by Friday lunchtime the vet advised me to let him go, we had to euthanize him. He is not quite thirteen years old (we think), and he is a crossbreed, a former stray, and a very healthy dog. We weren’t ready to let him go, but he was in a bad way. My husband and I broke the news to our children, returned to the hospital later that day preparing to say goodbye to our boy, only to see him walk into the room wagging his tail, albeit a little shakily. He’s a fighter! Now he is back home, and it will take time to rebuild his strength and clear out his body of the inflammation or infection that caused so much trouble, but he is coming on holiday with us. It’s a miracle! See you later, alligator… we are off to the beach!
