Alfie loved the Paleo completes (of course!) so we've been using them for a few months now - just find it so much easier than having to prep all his food which always took me ages and was a bit awkward with such a small amount of freezer space, one of their taster boxes is just the right amount for the space I have. I just add my own eggs & other extras
alfiemummy where are youuuu hope alls ok and your all settled in yr new home now, hows Alfie miss seeing your photos of your walks hope the new transport is wirking well too ! X
Don't panic, I'm still here! I am a master lurker
All good here, settled well but the place is still a tip - we're having the entire heating system replaced end of next week & over the weekend so it's going to be like a bomb site. I'm going to get out of the way on Friday and am having a night down in Great Yarmouth with barley and her new puppy to show him the seaside for the first time I keep nagging her to get on here and post about him but she's so busy! I'll have to tell her the cat's out the bag now and to get on here sharpish
Alfie is all good, he recovered well from his dental op and is back to normal eating anything and everything! He's starting to go grey now (more grey than he already was ) so it's become apparent he's becoming an old man
I post photos regularly on my Facebook page, I'm not sure if you can view it without having an account? I can post a few pics on here if not Alfie features on there a bit, he doesn't get many walks with just me anymore as he gets plenty at work!
The van is a bit iffy at the moment It's had the engine light coming on every now and then, seems to only be when the fuel tank is low as it's perfectly fine otherwise. It's been to the garage twice now and they can't find anything wrong with it so they told me to go direct to a Peugeot garage and see if they can find the issue. I'm still able to use it so it's not too bad, just annoying they can't find the problem!

If I was in your position and really loved my current job but just wasn't getting enough hours, and they were able to increase my hours- I'd likely stay in the current job. But that's just me! If you're worried about letting down the new people, I wouldn't worry about it too much. It's your life and you don't owe them anything, do what's best for you.
He went back for his checkup today and the vet was very happy with how he's healing up No more checkups now, I can start brushing his teeth again and gradually reintroduce harder foods after another 5 days.
Yes he seems back to normal now, he doesn't seem to have noticed that he's now got 6 teeth missing - he keeps wanting to play tug and was scoffing discarded chips on his walk earlier. Wait until you're healed up a bit more please Alf!
Five ? Wow poor boy , how is he now , why 5 in the end ?
I'm not certain why, I only spoke to the nurse and didn't really get a definitive answer. She just said that they would have been removed if loose or had any decay, holes or other damage etc, probably just due to his age. I had no clue there were so many bothering him No wonder he didn't fancy his treats! All of the others were in very good shape I was told.
He's ok now, just been sleeping all evening and very disoriented and wobbly.
So as mentioned in the chit chat thread, Alfie went off most of his treats recently and upon inspection I found a loose tooth at the very back of his mouth. There was no way he was going to let the vet have a good look so I took a video with me to show her:
So he was booked in for today to have that tooth removed and the others all checked and cleaned. He was in all day today, I picked him up around 6pm - he's had SIX removed! Poor boy is feeling a bit worse for wear now. He's very disoriented and almost fell asleep in his water bowl earlier He can't be feeling too bad though as he was happy enough to eat dinner as soon as he got in! He's got to go back in 5 days for a checkup.
That was handy lotsofcats! The vet couldn't even see Alfie's bad tooth, I had to get a video for her! It's in such an awkward position right at the back on his bottom jaw.. you can only see it if you pry his jaw open and pull his lip right back - there was no way he was going to let the vet do that on the exam table, so it's a good job he trusts me to look properly at home!
Alfie is going in for a dental op tomorrow he's having at least one tooth extracted. He went off most treats recently (anything too hard) and when I checked his mouth he has a loose tooth right at the back, poor boy
I'm a pro at parallel parking thanks to my old house being on a busy street where there was no other option for parking you do it often enough you soon pick it up!
Chat in real time!
lotsofcats: We have missed you! I hope you are back to stay.

caz2golden: If only you could see the view from my place of work, no one would swap it Storm Bronagh has stopped work today! Could I cope being back in an office now !! I think I could get cabin fever! Then again to be dry, not too cold or hot is appealing!
