Things we do for our dogs

So my younger beardie has an infection in his prepu... somthing-or-other (the tip of his penis). This will involve my syringing said orifice with warm water and epsom salts twice a day. Well, we'll see what Robinson has to say about it. This reminds me of a few years ago, when my older beardie, Cholmondeley, had a nasty infection in his anal glands. I bet you can guess what's coming! Yes, this meant that I had to stick a syringe up his bum twice a day and squirt antibiotic ointment up it. He was amazingly civilized about this procedure, and just stood there and let me get on with it! Only for those we love...

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
