All is not well in paradise

Poor, poor Bristol. Yesterday he started coughing, a nasty hacking cough that sounded as though he'd swallowed a live seal.

We rushed him to the vet and it turns out that, despite being vaccinated against it only a few weeks ago, he has a mild case of kennel cough. One steroid injection and a round of antibiotics later and, thankfully, he seems a lot better. At least his distressing cough has disappeared.

The worst of it, however, is that my little social butterfly has had his wings clipped: he is not allowed to fraternise with his doggy mates for 10 whole days! And we're to restrict his walks to 10 minutes only.

Work aside, I have cancelled all this week's extra-curricular activities, along with his beloved doggie play dates.  He, and we, are looking down the barrel of 10 very long days. Wish us luck...

His Highness in happier times



  1. Oh your poor baby! Sending hugs and get well vibes to the lovely Bristol.

  2. Oh thanks sweetie. He's not loving the short walks on a lead around the streets instead of his daily strolls in the town belt, but at least his horrid cough has stopped. He is, of course, being spoiled rotten by both of us!
