Not a good day for Jack yesterday. He picked something up on his walk and ate it. Not something he usually does. The consequence was that he was sick three times including all his tea. You pay a price for having a dog sometimes! He'll be empty after our walk this morning and hopefully will be OK.

Good wishes to Jack from Sam and Honey! Honey seems to be on the mend now, thank goodness. She is such a good natured dog, she has been easy to deal with, I really didn't realise quite how much emotion I have invested in her.

He's made a complete recovery thanks Sue. Glad Honey is better and yes, we form very strong bonds with good dogs over the years. I have better communications with Jack than any human I know, he is always aware of me and I of him. Most of it's body language, we read each other like a book....I often think that if people could see us when we are on our own they would be amazed, perfect understanding after over ten years of 24X7 cohabitation!

I'm pleased to say that Honey is going out for her first walk today. Nothing spectacular, just a few hundred yards or so and back on the lead. Maybe some crisps at the half-way mark.

Good news about Honey.....
I've been having a small local problem with Jack. He has been coughing a bit and has brought his tea up a couple of times. The cause of the vomiting was quite obvious, ingested hair. I couldn't work out where he was getting it from but yesterday the light dawned on me. I have been remiss about vacuuming for a couple of weeks and when he has his ball exercise the wet surface is picking up hairs which he takes in when he is chewing the ball. I have slapped my wrist, vacuumed properly and cut the ball back a bit. I think that will solve the problem!

Are you sure your Jack hasn't been swallowing bits of the rubber / sponge ball. Very difficult for the dog to clear from its system.

P. Yes, he has no problem with them, just passes them through his system. Definitely hair, the evidence in the vomit is unmistakeable.

Jack has all his chairs at home! He knows the benefit of a bit of sun and if there is any about he will get into it. I caught him yesterday taking in the rays....
