    Investing in a portable air conditioning unit would be worth while, for you and the dogs. Homebase/Argos do one at just over £200. Mine went wrong after two years, but when I argued that it should last longer, head office agreed to replace it.

    You and Cailean will be in our thoughts. I hope he responds to the additional medication.

    what a brilliant idea, Barbara. Particularly with the hot summers we've been having of late - will have a word with hubby.

    Ours was so good, the year before last (it broke just as last year's stocks ran out) that one day I went out with the dogs and was surprised to realise how hot it was. The only drawback is the noise level (you need to turn the tv volume up), but on cooler days you can get away with the quieter but very powerful fan facility.

    Sadly, Cailean's prognosis is not good.

    His cough is getting more frequent, and more often than not, he's asleep.

    The vet confirms she believes he is NOT in pain. When he's awake, his tail is still wagging, but I think he's fading.

    His heart meds are doing exactly what they should do, but I think his heart has enlarged so much now

    I will not let him suffer, but I don't believe he is suffering at the moment. I'm sure some more positive thoughts will give him a restful day.

    thanks, Norma. x

    Your thoughts must be helping, he's had a few potters in and out of the garden and now settled for a sleep in an armchair. .

    Izzy made do, quite happily, with pottering for quite some time, as did the others, because taking them upset Izzy. Now we work on slimming Joly (other two are slim).

    The waiting, knowing you have lost, time is the worst, as you want one more day/week but don't want to risk suffering. Thinking of you, Fran.
