Happy 10th Birthday Dougie...!!

Yesterday, 13th September, was my beautiful, sweet American Cocker Spaniel, Dougie's, 10th Birthday.! I honestly thought he would not make this special birthday as the sweet dear is suffering badly from infected glands which is causing his ears to become swollen and full of waxy debri, which then sadly causes skin abrasions.

My old vet kept telling me that it was a hopeless case and that I had to put him to sleep, but I just could not bring myself to do it. Took Dougie to a new vets and in the first visit she diagnoised what was wrong with him and gave me the proper medications. Goes to show that even with pets, you should always get a second opinion..!!

My sweet boy is slowly recovering and I couldnt be more greatful. If ever it was possible to love a pet as much as I do with Dougie. He is like my contant joy and my little protector. And I am so happy be able to share his 10th birthday with you all.

I love you sweet little boy. Happy Birthday and may you have many, many more..!

Hugs and Stitching,
Susi xoxo
