Tuesday and time for Tina (in Tina Time) from the Midlands.

Yesterday we had to take Maisie back to the vets as the haematoma in her ear had re-filled and had to be drained again. She was still all excited about being there until the vet put the needle in. A lot of blood was drawn off and they have said that if it fills to that extent again they will have to operate next time-fingers crossed that when we go back Friday all is well. It must be the week for accidents as Isla my new puppy managed to get her jaw stuck in the bars of the crate she was in. She was screaming something awful! Luckily Tony was in the kitchen and managed to stretch the bars just slightly to release the tension and she freed herself. Whilst he was doing this Isla's Dad Colin was not happy with the situation and was telling Tony off by barking and growling in his ear. Funny that, as he doesn't seem overly keen on his leaping mad daughter-or so we thought! As soon as she was free she was fine and seems none the worse for her ordeal. Tomorrow it's her turn for the vets for her 1st injection, poor wee girl, the needles are so BIG. That's it 'till next week-please someone give me something to write about for next week.

Poor little Isla, I don't think it is unusual for puppies to get their teeth caught on a cage, I can remember it happening to one of mine.

I had a doberman pup and it got its full muzzle stuck in a tomato soup can that the lid had been pushed inside-I had to walk it to the vets with the can attatched-really funny looking-she was given a relaxant and the can came off easily-I bought a better kitchen bin!!

Gosh Tina, you think the puppy is safe in a crate and then that happens.
Isla is a lovely name. I would have called her Isla Skye :-)

Puppies sure can made a horrid screaming sound. Glad little Isla is alright. It is a lovely name.
