We had lunch with friends out where we used to live and then spent a day and a half with other friends Liz and Pete at their farm and checking out the renovations at their second property. They are doing an amazing job and are making good progress. Unfortunately Jessie managed to catch her shoulder on a barbed wire fence (well we think that is what happened). She never let on she had hurt herself and it wasn't until Saturday night when we saw her licking her shoulder we noticed the cut.
It is not the first time she has had a run in with barbed wire but this time it does not even seem to be sore. She is a bit of a sook and normally crinkles her nose and shows her teeth if you get close to a sore spot but this time she let me clip all the hair away without blinking an eye. The main reason I clipped the hair back is to stop it poking into the wound and irritating it (which stops her licking so much) and so I could have a good look and wash it out with saline solution.
So that it can heal we are trying to stop her from licking it too much. We could have gone to the vets and gotten a cone today but a rolled up towel and a nappy safety pin do exactly the same job and she is not bothered at all.
I also cooked up a big batch of Chilli Beef and some Biscotti. Most of the Chilli Beef went in the freezer as I am trying to make sure we have a good stockpile of precooked meals for when the baby arrives.
There was also some time for books and cuddles in bed. Yes she is a very spoilt little dog.
How did you spend your long weekend?
