Wiggle - Day 2,917

We have Lilly staying with us while her family are on holiday so she has been enjoying the sunshine with Wiggle and Sofy:

Sofy is happy to have her BFF here to keep her company for our walks in the fields:

Lilly seems to like being here and has made herself at home:

Wiggle is happy, having felt the warmth of the sun on his fur he's now keeping watch on me as I type.

This blog entry is in memory of Val, our friend and a very lovely lady.

Wiggle - Day 2,910

Wiggle is still wobbling on, taking life at his own pace.  He's happy and waggy which is the most important thing to me and he still shows his cheeky side, like watching me eat with an expressions that says "share with me"

Wiggle still takes Atopica for his skin allergies and is on a low dose of Tramadol, just to keep pain at bay so every day he continues to wag his tail and show me he's happy makes me happy.

Wiggle - Day 2,903

Look!  A mini Wiggle!

The very kind people at Arty Lobster got in touch and asked if I would like a sculpture of Wiggle and I jumped at the chance.  Isabel had found Wiggle's blog and already had plenty of photo's to choose from and a few weeks later, this fabbie miniature version of Wiggle arrived.

I love it, my very own miniature Wiggle!

And as for real Wiggle, well he's fine, plodding along at his own pace and enjoying the warmer weather:

Wiggle - Day 2,889

Poor Wiggle, old age is getting the better of him.  

One downside to getting old for Wiggle is that sometimes he can't go through the night without needing to pee.  So despite being 13 years and 7 months old, Wiggle has puppy pads!  I love him too much to worry about a bit of wee so puppy training pads are the answer.

Another noticeable change in Wiggle is that his walks are getting shorter.  He does want to go out and sniff the grass and potter about but he can't manage to go too far and he often stops for a rest.  It makes me happy to see him out but sad when I then take Sofy out for longer knowing Wiggle used to enjoy our walks in the fields so much.

But despite this, he's happy and interested in what's going on, loves his fuss and cuddles and is my Waggy Wiggle.
