Chuggy, Bear started having trouble poo-ing a few weeks ago. What came out was tiny and Slug-like (not Sluggie-like) and sorry if anyone is eating at the moment. We took him to the vets and tablets didn't help so she suggested it might be an enlarged prostrate (he's 11 now so old man troubles). As he was still entire she said castration might help as the hormones leave his system the prostrate should shrink (so don't go to the docs guys if you are having trouble poo-ing). He is still going into trying to poo mode and nothing is happening. We gave him cooked meat at the weekend that we get from the carvery and boy did that act like rocket fuel. Only trouble was it was too effective! Boy did this house stink! He has never been a fat dog or greedy for a German Shepherd cross but he is a fluffy bag of bones at the moment. Vets tomorrow again I think.
Loving the Shady Pines scenario JFF. Sounds like it would make a great comedy. As for the weight loss, yes I am maintaining it but I want to lose another stone at least but it aint wanting to be lost! I don't want to throw in the towel at this stage but I could with not having to pay each week.
DL, FC3 is a bit older and I'm surprised he is still in FC. I suppose he is seen as vulnerable though. You are certainly getting a variety.
Tubs, is your new horse box going to be made by Lego or the Lilliputians? lol. You will have to get a smart car to tow it with.
