49 posts in this topic

Sooty has "gotten to" me more than most of the other most fortunate oldies , for some reason ..maybe  he lack of sight added to everything else ? Whatever ... each time a new comment pops up I am hoping it's more good news  :love: 
LMO .. Y'know, in the distant future, as you cross'that" rainbow ... you'll need security guards , cos there will be SO many  wagging tails & lolling tongues awaiting you  :)

Nah, @persephone, although it is very sweet of you to say so.   I am but a bit player in the scheme of things.  Sure there have been a few little doggies over the years, but think of those who have been rescuing and rehoming for years, dealing with the pounds, the ghastly puppy mills, owners who expect someone to take their dog at a moment’s notice because they want to go on holidays, etc etc.  

 

I’m glad you feel that way about Sooty;  she is remarkable and even the rescuer, who has been around the rescue traps for a long time so has seen more than her share of “cases”, wondered whether we had got her in time.  I know for the first few days, I was almost too concerned and worried to go to bed !!  

 

As for new comments - I am sure they will all be positive from now on.   The vet was pretty impressed with her on Friday.   I just hope the news will be as good about me, because, come meal times, Sooty is a real danger to me :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:   She keeps her nose on my legs to make sure I don’t get away before the bowl goes down.

Sooty weighed in at 3.53kg yesterday.  So thrilled.  I would guess another 800gm would do it and vet seems to agree as he thinks her ideal weight would be “low fours”.  I’ve had to loosen her little collar, so the weight is now starting to be evenly distributed and I no longer get a shock when I feel her hip bones.  We even went for a tiny little walk the other day when it was a bit cooler.  She seemed to enjoy it.   I certainly did: to see her sniffing and walking steadily with confidence was just wonderful.   

 

I have some lovely photos for you @persephone but they won’t transfer from my phone to the computer  :mad :mad.  It should happen automatically, but iCloud seems to be refusing to help !!
