News from the Quarantine Zone

Hooli's come to stay with me for two weeks. He was originally supposed to just come for one week while my daughter moves house, but he's developed Kennel Cough and so needs to be kept away from other dogs. Meaning he can't go for walks at the moment, and really should be kept as quiet as possible, so he's stuck here with me, poor little guy. Any exertion, and he's coughing and wheezing poor thing.

At least he can go out in the garden here, but he still looks fed up, doesn't he?
Actually, he just ain't his usually bouncy self at the moment.
He's taking antibiotics and anti-inflammatory tablets, which I'm supposed to sneak to him in a piece of cheese. Last time I tried that he sussed me out, and wouldn't eat anything I gave him without checking it out first and then he'd only eat it if I wasn't looking at him. It's taken months to regain his trust, so I hope I'll be able to fool him this time.

He's such a sweetie.

Aw, that's a shame, poor doggie. He sure is pretty, though. I've just sent my "house guest" home! I'll be dog sitting again in June, though; what are you gonna do, I mean after all their grand-dogs. hahaha

He's an odd looking pooch, but I'm sure he's a great pet.
