Sorry, I am a bit out of time at the moment. The Chief had managed to get well and truly ill with a virus before we rejoined forces, and he has helpfully passed it on to me. I am not really sick sick, but I am close to it, so I am resting more.
Also, the dog decided that maybe he didn't really want to be diabetic, and his insulin needs are fluctuating on the very low side, so for a few days I have to step up his testing regime.
The Zen of Dog is an interesting story, but what it really means I do not know.
