I need a mass outpouring of sympathy. Stretching across oceans and continents and South Road if necessary...
My dog is called Alfie. Gifted and Talented he is not. In fact he is chronically stupid, hairy great brute. But he is bloody gorgeous, totally adorable. For those who are teachers, he is on the Statemented end of the special needs scale. He is a Golden Retriever x Standard Poodle (biggest damn poodle I have ever known - he is like Clifford the Big Red Dog with a bottle of bleach!)
Last week he had his 'you know whats' sorted out. He was wearing a plastic lampshade for 4 days. The vets have said he is hyperactive and may need sedating.
Anyway, Bob went out tonight to play golf. When he came back, the sight of sticks he could chew on and balls that could be thrown was too much for him and he became somewhat excitable. I tried to sort him but at 30kg he is a bit big although ultimately I won (as if there was any doubt!!).
Except my wrist hurt. Just been to the docs and now I have to wear a fluorescent pink bandage on my wrist. Apparently the tendons aren't doing what they should be.
So I am feeling sorry for myself, hubbie is feeling guilty coz he thought I was putting it on (he's so gonna pay for that) and dog is too stupid to realise that this is his fault and I haven't put a bandage on just so he can chew on it.
If you wouldn't mind sending a bit of love this way, I would be so grateful. I need to feel the love....
