Last Friday night, I found myself attending a wine and cheese party at a friend's house, who is a great cook and mixologist, so there was LOTS more to eat and drink than wine and cheese!!
I've also been busy painting, cooking and baking, and oh yes, gardening, which included relandscaping the hedge along the front wall.
I also found some time to fix my "no kink" hose. Please don't ever fall for this gimmick, since I've come to learn that ALL hoses kink, no matter what!
Brownie had not been well since Friday, and I became quite alarmed when he seemed to be getting worse.
Sunday morning, an emergency visit to the vet at his home for attention. Seems as though I did not give Brown Berts the adequate dose for his worm treatment, so those buggers took a liking to my poor boy.
After an antibiotic shot and another dose of worm medicine, we came home armed with a 5 day course of antibiotics for him to take.
I felt so sorry for him, he was just miserable, and one look in his eyes told me, "Mum, I don't feel well."
Despite his ailment, he was still manning the house. Unknownst to me, one of my friends had stopped by on Sunday, and Brownie did not even allow him to open the gate, but stood his ground barking. Eventually my friend deposited the items he had for me in the mailbox and left. I received a phone message later indicating what had happened. I laughed...here it was, my poor Brownie was "sick as a dog" as we say here, but yet he was still performing his guard duties.....so proud of him.
