It seems like its going to be a busy weekend first off on Friday night I have to take Ami my 14 yr old white cat and Daisy the little blenheim for their annual boosters (do i ask the vet to apply the injection in the back leg) and as Poppy the tri has been doing a fair bit of scooting lately shes coming so the vet can check her anal glands for me. Then on Saturday morning all three girls are off to the hairdessers for a shampoo and set and a cavalier , not a lot off and leave my feet and feathers alone please , i drop them off at 9.00 am and collect at 3.00 pm so its an all day session and this particular place i go to even has one of those hydro therapy pools but i dont think they will appreciate that but i could be wrong. About November of last year i contacted a lady called Lorraine Gray who is an established animal artist and we agreed that she would paint the girls in oils and i found out this week its now complete ,it looks absolutely superb and with a bit of luck i may receive it on Saturday , and if anybody wants to view the link is http://www.pastelpetportraits.co.uk/acrylic_paintings.shtml so i am looking forward to receiving it and putting it in a special place , may i also say a very big thanks to Lorriane for her kindness and guidance and best wishes to her cavalier Smudge who has been a bit poorly lately. And lastly also i hope on Saturday i hope to receive a new fancy Panasonic camcorder i have ordered to record all the many happy moments that are supplied to me by the girls.:rah:

Wow, you have a busy weekend planned. I just took a peak at her website and love her work! Enjoy the new camcorder!

I would ask for injections to be in the hind leg area if possible.

Thanks for sharing the link. The portrait is wonderful. I love the way they look like they just stopped from playing to sit for the portrait and are not mpeccably groomed. You will enjoy this for many, many years.

(do i ask the vet to apply the injection in the back leg)
Was told by my vet that the yoke area, I suppose you'd say side of upper chest, was a better place to inject a dog. The absorption is better there too. I heard of a dog being temporarily lame after a jab in the leg.

She is a master at what she does! I'm sure you will treasure the portrait of your precious pups for years to come. Thanks for sharing the link!
