A bit of this and a bit of that so that family and friends can keep in touch with some of the small things which happen in my world.

Oliver Is Not Impressed
Every Year, the same old dilemma, "To vaccinate or not to vaccinate". I hate having to take my little man for his vaccinations, I worry that they could have an adverse effect on him. Every year I ask the same questions and get the same answers and I always take the vet's advice and let Ollie have his jab. He's never had a reaction to the vaccine before, but this year he was unwell for a couple of hours and I noticed that the vet had used a different brand. He was back to his normal self after having a sleep, but already I'm agonizing over whether to let him have them next year. I think I'll be very reluctant next time.
Oliver is usually very good when he visits the vet, but earlier this year he had an anal gland abscess (very painful). When we went for his vaccination, the vet wanted to check that everything had healed properly, which meant that Oliver had to have an embarrassing examination, which he would rather not speak about. Unfortunately, it hurt and Oliver turned into "Devil Dog".
The awful thing is he has to be checked out again in March. Oliver is not impressed.
