I’m taking this week off because Dora has had a serious operation – her condition was an intestinal intusussception – and she has been very poorly indeed. It’s where the intestine telescopes back in on itself so she needed 10cm removing. She was in the animal hospital for five days and has been home for three days recuperating.

We’ve been so lucky all the way down the line – to get an emergency vet that was experienced in that operation and who, despite the low odds, was prepared to do his best for her. She had the most exemplary care possible – it’s only my local Medivet, nowhere fancy, but it’s been a very stressful time – we were just living from one update call to another initially and when we did get to see her just before her operation, it could well have been a goodbye visit. However, she seems to have pulled through on a wing and a prayer – she is a very tiny dog for such an operation – and has started to be a little bit more herself although sore and sleepy.

So, posts this week are scheduled – only one a day because that’s all I had in the ‘bank’, and I’m hoping I’ll be back next week to be more productive but right now little miss Dora has all of my time (which mostly seems to be taken up cooking white fish, sweet potato, rice and plain boiled potato!).
