    Took her to the vet today to have a blood test to check her thyroid levels as she is putting on a little weight despite a diet, she's also very greedy and lethargic.
    Thought while there i'd have her micro chipped as she's the only one who's never been done - that was a trial for her. Vet did it twice and both times it didn't work :( she was so brave too. Now taking her back in a couple of weeks when she's not sore and they have a new gun.

    The failed micro chip, can see the two holes. :(

    In her fave place now, on the window sill sitting in the afternoon sunshine. :)

    Not a good vet trip but she's had a lovely meal and goats milk and is now asleep - bless her.

    I felt awful, probably worse than Britches - she didn't even squeak. :eek:

    Tell you what though Em, we saw a gorgeous little Pom and I knew Bumble was pretty but seeing one in the flesh - OMG he was like a little toy. :)
    My daughter said he's def on her wish list now. I always tell her about Bumbles adventure's 'cos he such a little character and now she's even more smitten - me too!

    :eek: Aww that's so lovely :eek: thank you :D I must say - anything I take a photo of will look a million times better in the flesh :lol: i'm absolutely appalling.

    Oh bless her, that's so brave - if someone had done that to me I don't think I'd have behaved so stoically! Glad she's up in the window :thumbup:

    More hugs for you little 'un (and your mum)

    Goodness knows how Bumble would look if you say you're bad at pics, cos he looks gorgeous whenever i've seen him and from what I gather he's no mamby pamby either, lol. ;) You must be so proud of him. :)

    She's a chi x yorkie but has the body of a frenchie now, lol :eek: the reason she has been on a diet. I think her fave raw chicken wings might have to be a thing of the past :( as she used to be so petite. If her thryroid test proves okay she will def be having no more wings! ;)

    She hasn't got up yet :eek: she never rises before midday unless I want to take her out, lol - in fact most of the dogs are late risers so i'm very lucky, can get all my chores done. Dismal day today so they can all start their walks later. ;)
