Woof, woof and woof again from me, guide dog Fletcher! Why all the excitement?! Well, I’m home.
Wasn’t that long ago I was rocking this T-shirt look at Guide Dogs Redbridge Hospital Kennels just after my back surgery (photo below). That’s why there was a slight pause at paws at the kerb™.
Waggy tail for all your get well soon wishes. Licks to all my new blog followers. And soppy kisses (or nose-bumps as my bunny friends prefer) to my regular readers. Knowing you are there for me means a lot.
Talking of kisses. My “kissing spine” and I even made it into Forest Vets’ newsletter. Forest Vets are Guide Dogs Redbridge’s authorised vets. Here’s the pawsome bit all about me:
Whilst the Guide Dogs Hospital Kennels staffs were lovely, I missed my fabulous human, Fiona. I missed my belly rub technician, Andy. Then after 6 weeks away, I saw my humans again. I forgot that I had a sore back and went crazy.
I’m home now. It’s woofderful.
For the first time in months, I can snooze on my back. For us dogs, it’s impawtant to take-up as much room as possible and get into the most awkward sleeping positions. Multi-tasking is also good. So whilst I’m lying here, I’m happy to receive belly rubs. Anyone?!
I’ve also got a new bed (the Piggy Bank was raided – poor Miss Piggy – and my new bed’s got something called memory foam). It’s vast and has a very comfy head rest. Here let me show you.
I’m getting better each day. Be a couple more weeks before I’m allowed my free run in the park and to catch-up on all my wee wee notices.
My future as a guide dog is a little uncertain though. As per the vets’ orders, I’m currently on light duties building up to full working. But I need a little help so my guiding is really good and I don’t stop unexpectedly. To be honest, I needed help a while back. My humans are on the case but it hasn’t been easy for them getting others to help us (I may even tell you all about it in a blog post).
While my humans and I are waiting for help, I’ll just have to double-check that my new bed is properly squidgy.
Time for another nap…
Woof and paw, Guide dog Fletcher.
P.S. I’m hoping to get in another blog post this month. Probably tell you about my doggie family. Make sure you don’t miss it by following my blog. As always, your pawsome comments are most welcome.
