The No Longer Pawly-ness of Groucho

So, I know I've been blaming Her for busy-ness at work for the lack of dog blogging, but the main reason really is for the past 4 weeks or so, I've been very paw-ly - at first, it was just a bit of scratching and carrying on but then it developed into something more serious - I was very under the weather and oh my, was She worried. Even the dog-ters were worried. I had some tests, which resulted in much furrowing of brows (I don't know why They were so furrowed browed - it wasn't as They were the ones who were paw-ly is it???) and then a day trip to the dog-ter for an ultrasound - oh, there was much anxiety, I can tell you (with Her, I was rather calm about it all). In fairness, I was a bit out of sorts and in a fair bit of pain BUT the GREAT news is that YEEEEEEHHHAAAA after 4 weeks, I am well and truly on the mend and the test results were fine - well, a few little things to keep an eye on but it wasn't the Very Bad Thing that it might have been so, to celebrate, we went for a kayak on Sunday -
which I totally enjoyed as it was just wonderful to feel so alive and Westie-ish again - but She needed some guidance (to be very clear here, and it may sound harsh, but honestly, She is not very good at all at this kayaking stuff - I'll be in His kayak next time - so much more exciting - I could swim faster than She paddles!) so I had to sit up front to navigate and stare at the birds and be on the look out for dolphins -
But, after a while the slow pace of Her paddling got to me and I made it very clear I wanted to be back on shore - as I needed to have a word to Him who was at it again with that camera thing - you know, the one with that very long lens which means He can get photos of me even if he is very far away which is very unfair - but I think sticking my tongue out at Him like this makes it very clear what I think of the whole situation.
Woof for now Groucho

Me and Nellie are glad to hear that you are getting better. Wow, imagine on going on such a small craft on water. Me and Nellie could never to that. We are too big and We do not like water at all. It is bad enough when We go to the beach and our family try and get Us to go into the water there. No way. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two dryest maremmas in the land.

Groucho, yippee, you are on the mend!
Personally I would pretend to still be ill in order not to have to go so close to the water, but, as they say, different strokes for different folks.
Toodle pip!
