    Default Poppy had a bad day.

    Yesterday Poppy had a really bad day. First thing in the morning she passed a very soft stool with lots of mucus and blood with it. I didn't pick it up straight away so I didn't know, otherwise I would have acted differently. Though she didn't eat her breakfast, I gave it to her later in the morning. She would probably have been better on no food for a few hours. I gave her plain boiled rice with no meat for dinner in the evening and today.

    In the afternoon, she jumped on the swing in the garden which has slats like a bench. Her leg slipped through the gaps and then she tried jumping off with her legs still caught. She was screaming poor girl. I picked her up and Dylan came running to help. I had to hold tight of her as she was climbing up me in her panic.

    Today she did a normal firm stool with just a little blood mixed up in it, not on the outside, no mucus so I would say she's getting better.

    I give up with James Wellbeloved, this is the second dog with colitis on it. Dylan had colitis regularly until he came off it.

    Here's Poppy doing her "me me me" thing while I try to adjust Dylan's new harness. She's just so affectionate, I'm loving the cuddles. I really needed a girl like Poppy.

    Poor Poppy, she looks quite happy in the picture. Looks as though Dylan is taking it all in his stride. Hope she has a better day tomorrow.

    Hope Poppy is better today Pauline? That's a great photo of them both,

    On the food front, I don't know if this helps.......we used to feed our 3 James Wellbeloved, until that is, Jake our Lab started to get upset stomachs all the time, now unusually for a Lab, he has always had a little bit of a delicate tummy, so we had to change food, and for the last 2 years we have fed ours Wainwrights from Pets at Home (I know it doesn't have the well known name,such as JWB or Royal Canin) which we found had quite a lot of great reviews on line, and since we switched - no one has had any major tummy upsets.......might be worth a think,

    Price wise it's about the same as JWB,the difference is negligable, we pay 35 for a 15Kg bag,as opposed to the JWB....which I think is around 40
