We had a light covering this morning too, mainly on the paths/roads rather than the grass. All gone when I came home from work, but we're due more tonight. Heavy snow for a few hours then changing to light till after 7am so tomorrow might be a different story!
I'm wanting to take my mam for mothers day but I'm finding it difficult to get to the NEC. Does anyone know of cheap transport to get us there and back? I live in Sunderland and wanting to travel on the Sunday and come back the same day.
It's hard getting there from the north east on a Sunday. There's no trains early enough. The cheapest I've found is Megabus, but the one going on the Sunday won't get you there till mid afternoon. However, I do know that there are sometimes day trips running from the north east though. I've not seen anything about this year yet, but I'm sure there will be one. Can you only go on the Sunday?
Did anyone watch this on ITV tonight? I found myself getting annoyed by a number of things! Mostly the amount of "designer" dogs that were in the list as it seemed like they were just giving names to things for the fun of it - Shepador anyone??
And then the other thing that annoyed me were the examples of some of the breeds they'd chosen, especially the Shar-Pei. It couldn't open one of it's eyes! Aaargh!
Of course. Having said that, even if I couldn't afford treatment, I'd do whatever I could to be able to afford it. I wouldn't be able to rest if I didn't. That's understandable. We still think about our last dog too, every time we hoover and we bump her memorial dog. She hated the hoover and she would have hated all 3 of the dogs we currently have. We were lucky that she never really needed surgery. She was on a vet diet at the end, which cost a small fortune, but was worth it.
Haha, well I suppose I mean updating their knowledge regarding rehab processes than learning. Jean's vet perhaps hasn't done that, although he's supposed to be very good if it's who I'm thinking of. I'm sure she said that he's the same vet who performed the endoscopy on Pepper a couple of years ago, in which case I'm surprised.
Is this a regime set by the vet scallywag ? Just thinking about when Oscar the JRT did his cruciate ligaments, Jean was only told to give him short, on lead walks at first with no time limits and I don't think she was told anything about stairs either although she does live in a bungalow so that could explain that bit! He doesn't have to deal with them anyway, lol.
Ok ... regime was set by vet, we were given a printed sheet , he was only allowed toilet breaks for 1st 2 weeks, after stitches were taken out he was on a 5 min walk 3 times a day, well.. hellooo those of you who seen my property that ment I could walk him out in IN Drive along the road and back in the Out Drve, well .. the looks he gave me, they were classic ! but it had to be done
Wks 3-4 10 mins 3 x day
Wks 5-6 15mins
Wks 7-9 where we are at 20 - 25 mins and introduce srairs ( shhhh we are doing 30 mins some times on a walk, and maybe 20 on the 2nd walk j but vet said that was ok as long as his total is no more than 1 1/2 hrs so that takes us to 28/1
5/2 - 19/2 30 mins faster walks yeah rght ... with a Springer whose nose is to the ground constantly , its quite slow going
I guess that demonstrates the difference between vets then! I can't remember exactly, but I think Jean was maybe told 10 minute walks, but only for a few weeks I think, then was just told to let him do what he wants to do again. She's still a little wary of him running too much in case anything happens, but she's been told it can't happen again once it's been repaired. He has slowed down a bit since having both of his done, but can still tear off after a motorbike or another dog if he wants to! I guess I'm just surprised that not all vets give a set rehab regime after a dog has been through that kind of operation. You'd think it would be a universal thing wouldn't you?
