Berri-Biskit has had the chop today. He now looks as far from the picture of him in a recent post as would be possible to imagine. He has a big lampshade on to stop him licking the affected area, he is very miserable and looks pitifully and, we feel, accusingly, at us.

I have always had all my animals neutered, so I am not really sure why this has been such a difficult decision. Maybe because it is for me the first dog i have had to have done, or because it was not done immediately it could be. The vet was not particularly encouraging of having it done. The decision was made when Berri was badly bitten by a dog which I assume he had tried to mount. He had done this before and been very badly bitten on the beach here. Both times involved various visits to the vet and discomfort, for Berri and all of us. but, he always seems such a proud boy, I hope that has not gone for good.

He'll get over it by tomorrow and his pride will be restored. On the dog whisperer today they said that if you don't neuter them you have to let them have two sh*gs a year or give them a lot of exercise!

Hello Vanessa. Nice to meet you. Thank you for visiting my blog yesterday.

I am sorry to hear your dog is recovering from what seems like a very unnatural thing we humans do, but I think it might help with his socialization, let's hope anyway.

Your guest cottage looks lovely and I look forward to seeing more of your crafts as you post them. I like to craft, and felting is something I have dabbled with.

Please visit again anytime. Love and best regards for your pooch!
