    Lovely to hear your pooch is back to being well - vets can do amazing stuff these days. And it sounds like you have an excellent one too, clearly keeping you and pooch in mind after consultation.

     Looking forward to your plotting…

    Hooray, one of my favourite diaries! Welcome back and how marvellous that the vet went off and investigated (they are of course, members of our families and much loved). Looking forward to reading more.

    Just wondering if a "complete diary reset" was a new thread I have missed? Hope you are back soon @shangaijimmy
