This is a fairly accurate depiction of my day, thus far:
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to sit in the dark with my head in a bag.
Earlier this afternoon, I had to perform an emergency operation on Snipe and removed a thorn from her pad.
We were walking in the top paddock when I noticed that she was limping. Much against her will, since she knew what was coming, I persuaded her sit down and had barely begun to examine her foot when she started whining and whimpering in her classic I’m-not-a-wimp-but-it-would-hurt-less-if-you-just-cut-off-leg style that she saves for occasions such as this.
Eventually, it all became too much for her and she lost the use of all four legs, rolling over onto her back, telling me that I had her permission to do what I must, she wasn’t going to survive anyway…
I quickly plucked the offending thorn from her pad and the relief on her face was almost human.
She celebrated by going completely insane and raced back and forth in the way that only Labradors who have been plucked from the jaws of death are able to.
In fact, a bit like this video I took of the two dogs last May:
Everyday, I hope that Snipe will do something to refute her image as the world’s most idiotic dog.
Still, I guess tomorrow’s another day…
Many, many thanks to Town Mouse for sharing this short video:
This afternoon I am mostly playing this video to entertain a small boy (and his Daddy…!)
It’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally got round to taking videos instead of just photos, and I thought you might all appreciate the sights and sounds of Snipe in her favourite place in the world: the river!
On Wednesday, when the heavens opened and my animals started pairing up and staring at their arks in anticipation, B and I hid indoors and indulged in some YouTube surfing. I can’t resist the urge to share these two videos with you.
