Under the weather?

Way-aye, Roscoe here again.

I’ve been feeling under the weather for a few weeks now. It’s a funny saying, isn’t it? But it’s just right for how I feel. When it’s sunny I feel a bit brighter, happier, wanting to get out and about. Although Mam has been saying it’s too cold to go out and the sunshine is misleading.

You know I went to see Dr Mark at the end of August. Mam was wondering about taking me back, but I told her I feel just the same, just tireder. And the tubejuice she gives me is great. I think she knows that, because I lick the tube clean for her after she’s given it to me.

So she’s not planning to take me to see him again as far as I know.

She’s been wondering what to do about Neville though. She tried to trim his teeth the other day but couldn’t see them properly. I know she wants him to have them trimmed because his forward molars have grown too long. It makes it difficult for him to eat. He’s much slower eating, anyway, so I get to all the best bits before he can, which Mam says is not fair.

Her phone beeped late last night after she’d gone to bed, and this morning she said “it’s from Vedra, boys, with a person to phone about teeth.”

So she’s found someone not too far away to take Nev to have his teeth trimmed. I’m not sure where yet, or when, as she had to leave a message for her. But I’ll tell you as soon as I know.

Nev was a little light when she weighed us this weekend. But not too bad. He lost what Locksley had put on. Locksley is growing! He’s half as big again as what he was when he arrived. Well, that was over four weeks ago. Babies do that, grow, you know. He weighs 450gms now. That’s about 1000 less than me. So he’s a third of my size.

I chat to them both through the end panel now. Ludo is getting curious, which is good. He’s taking cucumber from Mam, too. And after we’ve gone in after our run, Mam’s been letting them have a free run, too. Apparently they’ve learnt about coming into the tent to go back. They saw us do it once, and they caught on immediately.

With brains like that, they’ll be part of the family in no time.

See you next week. Hopefully we’ll all be feeling better and the sun will shine a bit.

Love

PS Mam says we star in her short story on her blog this week – on Wednesday.

  1. Roscoe, I hope you are feeling a bit more perky soon – sometimes sitting inside in the sun helps. Maybe you have something we call seasonal affective disorder or SAD. You certainly sound like it – a good time in sunlight or a sunlight lamp should help! As for Nev, I’m certain he’ll put the weight back on once he can eat properly again. You are certainly the caretaker!

  2. I’m sorry you’re feeling under the weather. I hope it’s nothing serious, and you’re feeling back to your old self again real soon. At least you like the stuff you’re being given from the tube, which is a good thing.

    Glad to hear it looks like Neville will soon be able to get those teeth dealt with. Hope all goes well for him so he can manage to get some of the really tasty food bits too, and maybe put a bit of that weight back on.

    That’s fantastic news about how Ludo and Locksley are doing!

    Squeak soon,
    Mollie
