Bruno’s Health Scare

aap crook 012

I’m a bit distracted at the moment, partly due to an invasion of grandchildren into Knipetowers( how did they get past the specially recruited manic killer guards?) and substantially by a worry about superdawg.

The other morning, I noticed him give a yelp whilst scrattin an ear and, when I petted him, he yelped again. Orf to the jolly old vet’s we went…The issue is that the vet (nice lass…) discovered that all or most of Bruno’s lymph glands are swollen and so, did a blood test and a biopsy and I’m waiting nervously for the results.

He’s OK, though – he’s alert and playful and occasionally noisy and without any symptoms expect for a slight cough.

I love this dog. But I might have some dangerous and difficult decisions to make quite shortly. I’ve sort of lost concentration on other things just now. There could be a bit of an intermission here….

Now I'm scared after your telling old Bruno is not well. I hope he's all right. Tell him I said so. Love the pic with him & the lamb in Wales.

A very worrying time Mike,many, many folk are concerned over Bruno's health and hoping all will turn out well.

I see so much of our last dog in Bruno - especially the drooling !
Hope it's nothing more than a large vet's bill for medication.
