...a super special card from my dear friends Madi and Mom,
....lots of snuggles with Gail,
....a short trip to the beach,
....followed by a meet up with Gail's friends at the Inversnecky Café.
....Then I sniffed out the early Spring blooms in the Cruickshank Botanic Garden,
....enjoyed freshly cooked liver for my Birthday Tea,
....plus pigs ear treats from 'Pet Comforts',
....and finally, er, some different antibiotics.
I only wish I could tell you that my paws were completely healed; that would have been the best birthday present by far, but it was not to be. Although the itchiness has now died down, the infection is proving hard to shift and I still find it hurts to walk, which is making Gail very sad. We live in hope that the new antibiotic will finally do the trick.

Happy Birthday, Bertie! Sounds to us like a perfect celebration and Bertie Day! We hope those new meds will do the trick...that would be the best present!ReplyDelete
Fresh cooked liver....YUM!
What a lovely walk, beautiful flowers (not all of which I could identify:), and visit with friends. Happy Birthday, Bertie; seven is a good age! And healing wishes from the Cardis3 and the old BCishReplyDelete
Happy birthday young pup!ReplyDelete
Apart from your paws still being sore and needing pills, it sounds like you had a wonderful 7th birthday.
Love and Woofs
Happy Birthday Bertie! Seven is a fabulous age and it seems you had lots of fun. We are so hopeing your poor paws will get better soon. HugsReplyDelete
Ah Bertie I'm so glad you liked your bday card...I was surely hoping the kitty kisses and paw taps to your paws would help. Kitty slobber is potent but has not antibiotics.ReplyDelete
Here's hoping the new meds are just what you need. Did the vet discover what nasty varmit had invaded your paws? 7 is our lucky/favorite number so we are pawsitive the meds will work
Other than icy paws it looks like you had a nice weekend and OMCs the weather was wonderful and all the posies...so purrty
Hugs madi your bestie
We held our breath on your pawfect birfday in hopes your paw was better. Oh Bertie, we so want this new med to do the trick. Oh, maybe tell gail you need more liver BOL! Happy birfday!ReplyDelete

Happy bday Bertie! Paws crossed that the new meds work. Hugs, Amanda, Scott, Harris & your old pal Horatio xxxxReplyDelete
Oh that about looks the bestest of barkday celebrations Bertie lad!!! As for the amoxi-clav... that is what I have had in the past when the lungs have deteriorated into bronchitis and/or pneumonia (thankfully not for a few years now!) and it does hit strong. POTP for it working equally effectively on those paws. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
We think given your poor paws, it still looked like a pretty good bday! Happy, happy Birthday dear friend.ReplyDelete
Happy Happy Birthday! And with liver too, you are one lucky dog!ReplyDelete
Bertie! We can't believe you're 7 this year!! We are sending big birthday POTP to your paws. We're glad you had a fun birthday!ReplyDelete

CLAPPING AND SQUEALING WE THRILLEDDelete
THANK YOU. WITH SPRING COMING SOON I KNOW YOU BOTH ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING OUT WITH FEET IN WORKING ORDER.
hUGS MADI AND MOM
A belated happy birthday to you, Bertie, and it's lovely to hear your paws are starting to get better! I recently had an out-of-nowhere foot issue and the meds they gave me were just about miraculous in how quickly they settled things down. It is no fun at all to have foot problems regardless of the number of feet involved!ReplyDelete
Bertie - Better paws . That's great news. Do you get itchy ears and have to scratch them a lot ?ReplyDelete
Oh Bertie we are so sorry your paws are not better. We are sending healing purrs to you and our paws are crossed that your paws are better soon. Belated Happy Birthday wishes.ReplyDelete
