    Well what can I say!? My four beautiful boys are doing so well! They now have a liberta explorer! Its huge!! and they love it! It's still quite bare especially down the bottom as Louie doesn't go down very often these days. We are filling it up slowly lol.

    Louie is such a little old man bless him. His back legs arent working so well these days but he's still strong enough to jump and climb when he needs to. We have to help him get back in the cage because he likes to climb it himself which he can but he can quite get a good grip on the very top (by the doors) to pull himself in. So we support his bum and gently lift while his little hands do what they are supposed to do when climbing and he's chuffed with himself lol. His eyes are cloudy now bless him and he has slowed down a bit. But dont be fooled when he has to stop the younger ones taking food off him he'll defend with no problems!! He still climbs into his hammocks with no problems bless him. He has a large lump on his side. Our vet is pretty confident that he can take it out easily and we would have taken it out before it got so big but we have pretty much been getting resp infections on a weekly basis. He's on bayril and tablets now in the hope that it will be completely cleared up by wednesday as he's booked in to take out the lump. he's lost a bit of weight i think and his shape has changed around the back. he seems to get diarahreea quite easily (any ideas?) and his breathin is always quite rapid these days. his heart is strong though according to our vet when he gave him a full thorough examination last night. his skin is also quite flakey. his appetite hasnt slowed down though. He will eat and eat and eat all day if we let him lol. even though all these problems are there, he is still such a strong little boy who take no messing from the younger ones. he's still top rat =)

    Max is also on ab's as of this morning as he let out an almighty sneeze/cough! we're still getting abcesses. Brody has one on his chin at the moment. It was huge and all the way in the mouth and i was worried that it was going to affect his breathing and eating. He found it very painful to eat but we gave him soft foods like porridge (their fave) and really soggy buttery (I know dairy isn't good but it was olive oil spread lol) beans on toast. The one in his mouth is all cleared up now thankfully and it didn't effect his breathing at all =) Rocco is still the little thicko of the bunch! ha ha. He isnt the brightest lamp in the street lol but i love him or it! All the babies are on the sofa next to me sleeping under a blanket. Well two are pancaking on the cool leather lol and Louie is sitting on the back of the sofa behind me boggling away =)

    I am cherishing every day with my bucks! Especially Louie as he is 31 months now.

    Here are some pictures -
