Posting days: Sunday and Wednesday and, sometimes, maybe, extra bits in between.

Your sympathetic comments about poor Hairy One’s accident are much appreciated. Thank you all.
But is I. S. right when he observes
‘ … poor dog, but they tend to recover quite quickly from these incidents.’ ?
Twice I examine Isis meticulously. She’s surprisingly tolerant, though she draws the line at my manipulating her tail between finger and thumb.
I still worry that I might have missed an injury, that she’s in pain, just not showing it.
Next day I tell Gr. of my concerns as we stand in the rain on the grass above the old bowling green. I’m know I’m looking worried as we both instinctively glance at the patient.
“Yes, very worrying,” we agree as we watch her looping and galumphing over the grass, leaping up to catch the raindrops. “But she doesn’t seem in too much pain!”
Half an hour later, she appears to be bearing up reasonably well in the Colour Garden too!
She is, indeed, a resilient dog.
Isis came from the Aeza cat and dog rescue and adoption centre in Aljezur, Portugal. For information about adopting an animal from the centre, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or www.dogwatchuk.co.uk
