Sunday morning is the new start date. All will be good then. Really, it will.Honest. And perhaps all the jokes about Shackleton were a bad idea.
Jemma's new wonder drug "Metacam" perked her up to the extent that she "over did it" and we (and her vet, Peter) think she has maybe hurt herself running about too fast. Jemma saw Peter today, having developed a much worse limp in one (or both?) of her back legs. Jemma has seen Peter before, but the last time was in March 2007, and this was a great reunion.

When we found her she had been carried across the river by a walker - he was wet through to his waist, and he held Jemma in his arms, her left front leg hanging limp and smashed. Peter operated the following day and after a few week's she was up (and running) again.
Today Peter recommended a week or two on a narrowboat as the best convalescence, with plenty of time sat in front of the stove, frequent but short level walks on towpaths, and occasional visits to pubs.
