Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

He still won't touch dogfood, but ate fish and rice for breakfast. Has now had his cortisone tablets. Short walk because of the icy wind, his tummy was shaved for the ultrasound scan.

Cheap greenhouse - advice please!

It's hard to tell, but it looks very tiny, once you are in it. I wonder how much room there is. I've seen this one on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Summer-Garden-Buildings-Greenhouse-Polycarbonate/dp/B00CM6GHJ8/ref=sr_1_45?s=outdoors&ie=UTF8&qid=1423400536&sr=1-45 , but it's £215. It has good reviews and is 2 foot longer, looks more like a real greenhouse.

Afternoon all.

Icy wind here. Tigger ate his breakfast this morning of rice and fish, still won't eat dogfood. Took his cortisone tablets. Walk was short because of the cold, he has a shaven tummy because of his ultrasound scan.

Feels like the sort of day to sit in front of the woodburner and watch TV. Don't do that very often in the day time, apart from Escape to the Country. I like that because of the scenes of beautiful English countryside and as I'm nosy I like looking in people's houses.

Bad news about Tigger, liver cancer, put it on the worries and troubles thread.

Been to the vet hospital. Bad news about Tigger (my lovely 12 year old Border Collie). He has liver cancer. He's had blood tests and an echography. Starting cortisone tomorrow and if he seems to be in pain then it's euthanasia. Vet said heart isn't too good either. He can't give exact prognosis, if Tigger eats and drinks then could be 2 - 3 months, if can't eat could be as little as a week. But he has eaten today. Have another appointment on Tuesday. It all seems to have happened so quickly. In 10 days he's gone so downhill and lost a lot of weight. Fur looks awful.

I read somewhere that it's back on 6th March. Could be wrong though.

Good morning all.

Tigger ate some breakfast this morning, fish and rice again - all he's touch at the moment. Vet hospital this afternoon. Thanks for the cheese tip Lyn, but he isn't a cheese sort of dog. He loves bread and butter, not usually allowed, so I squidge tablets, like his wormer, into bread and butter, but yesterday he was so off food it didn't work.

-5° this morning - but we have sun

Gosh, Lily, you have been busy this morning. I've only done the bathroom.

Thank you all for being so encouraging about Tigger. He's eaten a bit of fish tonight which I'd put his antibiotic into, which is good. Couldn't get him to take the antibiotic earlier.

Yummy looking cake, chicky. I was sorry to miss DD's carrot cake earlier.

With Bekkie on Tom, not my taste either. I find it hard just to go on looks, it's character and je ne sais quoi. But I do like Chris Beardshaw.

Looks brilliant, what a lot of heavy work it would have saved when we built OH's shed.
