A real dog story, this time. Our terrier stopped eating for two days and sat in his bed looking miserable. A visit to the vet cleared up the sickness that accompanied his distress but it took another couple of days for him to start eating properly, and then only because we tempted him with his favourite – scrambled egg! He used to eat dried food and would not touch it, but he was still drinking water so we didn’t panic. Then we found some chicken and rice and some little tins of food and he was well away. Now he is back to eating dried food and jerky and biscuits – just as if nothing had ever been wrong! We don’t know what caused it – something he picked up in the garden, fox poo or a snail – but he’s back to his bouncy self and on guard on the back of the settee as in previous photos.
