The workman has been barked in and says he will finish today now the sun has made an appearance. If only all problems could be solved by a little good weather...
Crispin has continued to deteriorate and his incontinence has become much worse over the last few days. We walk around the house scanning the ground but occasionally miss it if it's dusk. My visitors occasionally find something very unexpected in my office . The poor dog doesn't know it's happening which is not good when he arrives during a meal. Neither David or I could finish last evenings dinner!
He has been such a good dog I really can't tell him off but he is anxious each time until the offending object is removed!
In other ways he is still fine. He barks at visitors...he greets old friends with joy and still eats well....
It's the back legs that are his problem...he sighs when sitting down and can't get back up without a visible effort.
David and I have agreed that once the weather won't allow us to leave the doors open then it will be time to talk to the vet again. The main problem is that he will be 15 in September. It would be a poor birthday present for such a wonderful dog!
What ever happens it will leave us bereft that I do know!
Here he was this morning back in his usual place on the new paving!
