There were fireworks in the village last night so old Tigger was terrified as usual and decided he'd sleep in his old bedroom, the entrance hall. Recently, since the weather warmed up he has preferred to sleep in the stable, as his back legs have got very wobbly and he doesn't like the tiled floor. The stable has non slip rubber mats. So I put a bed in the stable. Another reason is he likes to go to the loo in the night now he's old. He's a Border Collie.
Anyway, I heard him yelp early this morning and came down to find the most frightful mess. He'd been incontinent and slipped on the tiles (I've put bits of carpet down to help him) and got stuck in the passageway on his tummy with his legs out sideways. It took nearly an hour to get him outside (put a towel under his tummy to pull him up) and clean up the mess. He's still fast asleep but I need to give him a bath. Then I'll need a bath.
We are going to a friend's birthday lunch party, hope we aren't late.
