THE GREATEST DOG IN THE WORLD

We had to take Glenna to the doggie hospital for an emergency appointment today as she is still very poorly. This time we paid for a full blood screening which they did on the spot. The good news is that her major organs seem fine, although her heart rate is higher than it should be. She hasn't got an auto-immune desease which is reassuring (we had a dog once who died from that and I wouldn't want to go through that again). But her white blood cell count is very low. The vet believes it is more likely that she has picked up a nasty virus rather than her illness being due to a bone marrow problem. She has to go back on Monday for a follow up blood test.

So far it has cost us over £250 which is more than half of what you lot kindly donate every month. This near Christmas such an unexpected expense is bad news. If anyone wishes to contribute towards Glenna's vet bill you can do so using the donation widget in the sidebar. It would be very much appreciated (by me and Mrs MP, if not by Glenna who is blissfully unaware of all monetary matters). You don't need your own PayPal account to be able to do so.

  1. Oh, Jonathan, I’m so sorry. I’ll try to drop you a few quid when I get paid on Monday. Bruno set me back over $500 last week which blew our budget to hell. His Majesty evidently strained his basset back, and pain therapy has him back to his usual self … I hope.
