So the Vet came out this week on Wednesday to check me over, as mum knew I wasn’t happy (I have been in a particularly terrible mood this week) He watched me trot up an flexed my back legs- I did try and kick him a few times, and tried to bite mum just to […]Read more "More than a bump in the road"
I have been grumpy all week, as I have been hurting- which I tried to let mum know about in subtle ways.
