A Visit to the Vet ...

Today Harry has to go to the V-E-T to have his baby canines extracted. This is, apparently, a common problem for Shelties, and his needle sharp infant canines are still firmly fixed and crowding his adult canines. It is a procedure that requires full anesthesia, which obviously worries me, and I am currently being watched accusingly because I have failed to provide his normal morning treat and bowl of food. Our appointment is at 11.00 and I'm just hoping it will be quick and problem free.

In the meantime, here is the latest picture of the handsome little aristocrat.

His favourite activity at present is a good 'kick-about' with his football. Hopefully he'll feel up to it this evening. Tomorrow we are supposed to go to Manheim for a 'reunion' with his siblings and the rest of the Goldbachmoor 'family', but may have to forgo that if the vet advises against it. 


  1. We're now back from the V-E-T and Harry is rather subdued and currently sleeping on the patio. His delight when I 'rescued' him from the surgery and his eagerness to 'escape' immediately this 'torture chamber' was touchingly funny. As He was still groggy and his back legs rather wobbly he ended up in my arms while the vet explained his medication and opined Harry would be fine to attend his family gathering tomorrow.
