Sue thanks and thanks for asking about the dog. Cafe talk, but no, she is struggling at the moment. She's 12 1/2 and just had a big operation on her jaw where it had become infected somehow. She pulled through that unbelievably well (she might be 12 1/2 but she comes from good solid farming stock and is very healthy). However it took a few days to come out of the anaesthetic really and then a couple of days later oh took her out, let her off the lead and she tore a ligament in her leg
She's on painkillers but I suspect we may be looking at another operation on that.
So money flooding out like water here as we've never had insurance on her, hence needing to sell now.
