A ROUGH WEEKEND......SOME FINISHED WORK.
We have had a rather rough weekend, I am taking a little breather to post and regroup. Our beautiful Penny, who is almost 15 years old had a fall on Friday. It was quite warm here, finally, so we let her stay outside while we went out for a few hours. When we came home she was lying in the yard not moving. She must have fallen and got stuck over the garden partition which is only a few inches high. She has bad hips so she could not get up. You could see by the moved gravel that she had tried.
This is what she looked like all day on Saturday. She would not eat or even drink and she was a little out of it. We had to help her up and walk her on a lead outside. We thought that this was the end. She has missed Duffy so much and this horrible weather does not help. I spend almost all day and evening in tears thinking that we would have to make a final trip to the vet. This morning my husband woke me with the good news that she had a sparkle in her eye, ate breakfast and was getting up just fine. I know we will lose her soon enough but I wish she could have one last summer, she loves the summer. I have never felt to bad in my life coming home to her just lying there so helpless. This will not happen again. We are going to make whatever time she has left very comfortable and never leave her out alone. It is the hardest thing when you furry family ages.
Since I did not leave the house yesterday and wanted to stay close to Penny, I sat in the kitchen and finished my Wedding Ring Holders which I am putting in my Etsy Shop WICKED FAERIE QUEEN.
I hope you have all had a nice weekend and better weather than me. I look forward to reading your posts about some sunny spring days. If you get some time pop over to my gardening blog LUCYS GARDEN where I am having a look at Topiaries.
