We have had a hard couple of days, you may remember my post about Preston
Well towards the end of last week he developed a bad leg, he was our sons dog and he told us that he had visited the vet previously with the same problem. Well he recovered a bit and then this week became quite poorly, he had two trips to the vet this week, some jabs and anti inflammatory drugs and then last night he took a turn for the worse and a fluid filled swelling appeared on the back of his head. The vet thinks he has a disc problem, we really thought he was going to die last night...however, a couple of tablets later and he was up and eating and trotting about. Today he is still a little under the weather but much better than last night. He is with us on route to his new owners who will have him move in with them in the new year. For now we have to keep him from doing too much...not easy for an 8 month old beagle pup in the snow!!

I am so glad that he recovered somewhat. How DO you keep an 8 month old pup from being too active???

That is a lot of snow for you guys.

Prayers for the puppy, hope he can rebound and live a long and healthy life! Your snow is lovely, Merry Christmas!
