Wiggle - Day 44

Wiggle has had another bath and a run around the field chasing after his tennis ball. I thought I'd take a photo to show how well his fur has grown back after he was shaved for the intradermal skin testing - a good growth in the last two weeks!

Seeing Wiggle every day, it's hard to notice the changes in him so I've been looking back through this blog and even I'm surprised how far he has come.

When I think, it's not even two month's that Wiggle has been here yet he has improved so much from the sad, dull and grey baldy dog who arrived here on the 20th June.

It's flattering to have recieved so many positive comments and compliments but to be honest, I'm only giving Wiggle the care that any responsible owner give's their dog (or foster dog!!). Wiggle gets the same love and attention as Dolly and Sir H yet in so many ways it makes me sad to think that he spent so much time being itchy and uncomfortable when treatment was available that would make him better. He doesn't scratch like he used to, is happy and bouncey and just enjoying life being a dog again.

Wiggle's still got a long way to go - more fur to grow and more weight to put on, but he'll get there. One last photo for today - taken at Maude Heath, on top of the hill, a place where you can see for miles and feel like you are literally on top of the world - probably how Wiggle is feeling these days!
