The Tongue-Master General


It's been so long since I last updated the blog that I thought it only right to let you know how Tilly's getting on. She's fine - still plagued by intermittent periods of lameness, but remaining her characteristically joyous self.

She's calming down quite a lot now that she's reached the 'mature' age of four (!), but still runs rings around me. There's also been a refinement of her 'smooching' strategy and she's mastered the art of getting her tongue around the lips of any unsuspecting stranger who happens to bend down in her company. The washing machine repair-man discovered this a couple of weeks ago, as he innocently stooped to examine the machine. Sluuurrrpppp. He'll think twice before doing that again in a hurry. Bullseye. He loved it really.

She's still not a great fan of cuddling up at every opportunity, but gets incredibly soft at the end of the day when she's tired. The only time you can really 'get hold of her' is when she's in her bed, and of course, I take full advantage of it. She's been my saviour over the past couple of years - I really don't know what would have happened to me if she hadn't scampered along.....

Tilly is a doll, slurpies and all! I'm glad she found you. Not doubt a slurp or two comes your way on behalf of Prince (as he whispers in her ear).

hope all is well over there.

Its great to hear about you and Tilly again. I had quite a few people pop along after you posted about my little fella George. There were plenty of words of comfort and support which I really needed at the time. George has completed his chemo and has experienced no side effects! Thank goodness! This made is easier to deal with and know that we made the right decision. He is now on chemo tablets for the rest of his life to keep the cancer contained and stop it from spreading. The vet seems to think that he could be around for another couple of years on these. Fingers and toes crossed that this works. Thanks again for your support.

Glad to hear Tilly is getting along well.

Cash is doing well. We started him on Glucosamine tablets, Hemp oil on his food every day, and have him swimming as much as possible, it has really really helped. Thought I'd let you know, in case something like that might help Tilly too!

I just found your blog . Love it. My dog. named D.O.G. keeps getting out. He likes to visit the neighbors trash cans. Anyway I started chaining in up at night. Which I hate. One night it started raining so I emptied out one of my sons football shaped toy boxes and put it out for him. He loves it. He even uses it when he is not chained up .It is so cute. D.O.G. in a toy box.
