Chester’s First Christmas

In doggy years young Chester has become an adventurous teenager, so you won’t be surprised to hear that he’s landed himself in a spot of bother after a Christmas Eve escapade.

IMG_1673 With all the busyness of Christmas preparations distracting us, our young explorer seized the moment to escape from our front garden, only to be bumped by a (fortunately slow-moving) car a moment later.

Apart from the fact that he was limping on his left hind leg he appeared to have come off lightly.  The diagnosis, after an emergency vet examination and x-rays, was severe bruising. and he spent a very quiet Christmas at home rattling with painkillers, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory tablets.
