Puppy Snowman!

Evening all, how are we?  Big, warm, furry, squirrelly hugs to everyone who needs one.

We tootled off to the vet again this morning to pick up some more of the critical care food that Vince has been on for a couple of weeks.  Toad stayed in the car while I nipped in to collect it.  There was a couple at the reception desk ahead of me and I stood behind them thinking the chap looked familiar.  They finished and turned to leave and I realise then that it was a BBC tv news journalist who covers the East Anglia area.  Ooooh I says that's Kevin off the telly (couldn't remember his surname at that second).  The receptionist looked at me blankly.  A lady behind me piped up I thought it was him!  The receptionist looked vague.  Burch!  I said Kevin Burch.  Does the news?  Another vague look from the receptionist (aged about 18), Oh, I don't watch news.

Anyhoo, here's the health update:  the test results from the wee sample that we finally managed to provide on Monday have come back as inconclusive.  Laura, the vet, said she would have been much happier with a definite result but they were neither one way nor t'other.  So, as a precaution, Vince is going to be admitted on Thursday evening so that he can be on a drip overnight before his anaesthetic.  Laura is going to try and fit it while he is on the consulting table and I am there to keep him calm (he was beautifully behaved on Monday, even if he did have his head buried in my tum).  I am absolutely dreading him going in.  It is hard for anyone who doesn't have a special pet to be able to understand, but I know there are many of you who do, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your kind words and support,

One of the nurses on duty this morning (the one who admired Vince's white moustache) came over to ask how he was and said she will be on duty when he goes in and would keep a special eye on him, bless her.  I think she might have been the one on the receiving end of the wildcat attack the other week.

After all that, yes I do have a card to share with you, and not a cat in sight.

Love these little cuties!  This stamp is Puppy Snowman from CC Designs
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are from a Forever Friends pad
Sentiment is also CC Designs from the Naughty or Nice set
Snowflakes are Woodware and X-Cut punches
Sparkly gems are Papermania

Right then, I'm off to caramelise some of dad's leeks for dinner and I need to keep an eye on those!

Enjoy your evening - it's Musicals night on Strictly, lovely job.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Guess it must be catching - celeb spotting that is.
Trevor who helps us with odd jobs Is a bin man & on his route yesterday he spotted Rupert Grint in a very flashy sports car behind his Dustcart, the funny part being that one of the guys collecting the bins walked into a lamp post because he was too busy staring at the car.....I gather Rupert was chuckling away as the lad stumbled backwards oblivious to who was driving!

Anyway enough waffle - I love the card my friend
