Thanks for the emails and kind thoughts about Maggie – I am so pleased and relieved to report that the Hematologist who redid Maggie’s blood test reports that there is nothing significantly wrong – there are some abnormalities but probably just due to the fact she is now a geriatric dog. So that is very good news.
Maggi and Patsye asked about the male black and tan Collie who was up for adoption at the same time, we presumed it was her brother but do not know for sure. He remained at the Pound for another three weeks, during which time I strongly resisted pleas from my daughter and my own temptation to bring him home too. Eventually he was listed as having been rehoused, which was probably a very good thing for me as I was feeling very sorry for him and might just have succumbed.
