"PLAYGROUND TWIST"

"PLAYGROUND TWIST"
An update on Casper for all his friends.
We are going to Padstow for a weeks holiday on Saturday and the vet has advised that Casper is OK to go as long as we are careful and do not overdo it.
He is feeling a bit better but still struggles with his coordination and balance and gets stressed easily.
he will certainly not be playing like this with Lilly.
This was taken Christmas 2009 when he was still very bouncy with his litter sister Chloe who we sadly lost last year.
Reminded me of the song by Siouxsie and the Banshees www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJAx5BOWPM8

Clint Hudson, Aquilant, Pam J, Xata and 18 other people have particularly liked this photo

A wonderful photo of Lilly and Casper on Padstow Beach. Our dogs have played on that beach as well - wonderful fun.

Hopefully with time the balance and co-ordination will improve...take it easy and have a nice week away.

What a beautiful photograph, Alan ! ******
Dogs love playing on the beach. Twice a year we try to go on the sea side .... just for Marco, our little dog, who loves so much running there !
Wish you a beautiful week holiday, dear friend.

We may have to drive him to some of the beaches as it will be to much for him to walk there but he will have a good time
