Dorney Reach

I haven’t been on my bicycle for more than 6 months so decided today’s activity would be a quick ride around Dorney Lake. Did 3 laps in about an hour or 13 miles. Definitely got some saddle sores but great to get back on the bike again and the weather was fantastic.

England – 6 Panama – 1

Sunday was football BBQ in the garden.

Started the day with an early morning car boot at Taplow, followed by some last minute food/beer shopping.

13.00 was time for the World Cup. We set up the projector in the garden and watched the football over burgers, sausages, chicken, Pimm’s and Beer. What better way to spend a hot Sunday afternoon during the World Cup? And a win!!

My brother unfortunately fell asleep after too much Pimm’s and fell foul of some fun on our part.

 

 

Labrador woes

Our Labrador is now 14 which is quite a good age for a Lab. She has developed some recent health problems and we took her to our local vet’s to see what was causing the problem. She has had some obvious trouble with her back legs/hips related to her age and has recently lost bladder control and when left at home overnight would often have an accident delaying the laying of our new floor.

The vets charges us a few hundred pounds to do some tests which were inconclusive and we got to the point where we felt we were spending money needlessly.

Working on the idea that both problems occurred at the same time, I suspected that the bladder problem was related to her pain/discomfort in her rear hindquarters and decided to try some tablets you can simply buy from Amazon similar to what people might buy if they had joint problems. The tablets cost £20 for about a months worth and since she has been taking them we have not had a problem. The dog clearly has some stiffness still when she lies down for long periods but the bladder problem is gone at the moment. Hopefully the beneficial effects will continue and there will be no negative side effects?
