ILEX meserveae 'Casanova' ... and Conker .... 27 Aug. 2010


ILEX meserveae 'Casanova'  ... and Conker ....  27 Aug. 2010

... thanks to Terry60 for this wonderful shrub ...

Conker seems okay at the moment, but recently he had several days of illness requiring a visit to the vet clinic ...

Prior to that he had been enjoying good health, so it was alarming to see him poorly. ... I haven't really recovered yet from the shock ...

... but Conker has perked up and seems fit now ...

I'm starting to catch up again with GoY ! :o)

28 Aug, 2010

 

Thank you everyone for your kind words and hugs for Conker ...

He became unwell very quickly, but, after a few days, seems to have made an equally fast recovery, except he still has a little throatiness ...

Being left with strangers at the clinic is very traumatic for him ...
and for me ... I coped at the time, but the episode has left me upset ...

Yes, let's hope he stays well ... :o))) xxx

28 Aug, 2010

Thanks Clarice ...
Conker is eating okay and that's a very good sign .. xxx

29 Aug, 2010

 

Thats good, like us when where ill once we start eating we seem to pick up quicker, lots of hugs from me and the two little rascals xx

29 Aug, 2010

 

Thanks for the hugs.
I bet those kittens are keeping you busy. :o) xxx

29 Aug, 2010

 

Tell me about it, i'm sure Smokey and Bandit was not as active as these two, and they where only 6wks when i got them as well, my poor garden is getting flatter and flatter as they jump in all the plants when there playing or lay on them, or its me thats more into gardening than i was when Smokey & Bandit was babies, Jack was suppose to be nutured last month but he was not quite big enough down there so he goes now on 8th sept for it, sure they will do him this time as he his quite big down there now, :o)))xx

29 Aug, 2010

 

...well, a quick visit to the vet, and then Jack won't weigh quite so much when he lands on your plants LOL ;o) xxx

29 Aug, 2010

 

LOL :o))xx

Sorry to hear Conker hasn't been well TT , give him a big hug from me hopefully he will continue to improve ... xx

29 Aug, 2010

 

Thanks Amy...
Big hug passed on to Conker.
Thankfully, he seems a lot better ...
I'm still a bit in shock over it though ... xxx

29 Aug, 2010

 

Oh, Tt, that must have been frightening! Sorry to hear that Conker has been unwell, but glad to see him here again, looking as handsome as ever! Lovely shrub from Terry, too. XXX

29 Aug, 2010

 

Thanks David...
I just wasn't prepared for Conker deteriorating so fast ... being in "top form" one day, and then so ill the next ...
... I was very scared ... it gave me a shock...
but, yes, thanks... he's doing well now, and I'm delighted with the Ilex meserveae Casanova :o) xxx

29 Aug, 2010

 

Lovely photo Terra but the blog gave me a turn, I`m sorry to hear of Conker`s being poorly and fully understand your distress,so glad to see he is ok, guess he`s just keeping everyone on their toes.
Sending you both a big hug. XXX.

29 Aug, 2010

 

Hi Lincslass ...
Yes, very much on my toes with Conker ...
... a roller coaster ride ...
I think his throat area will always be weak following all the treatment last year ... but praying he will keep fit ...
hugs to Brynner and Morgan ... xxx

29 Aug, 2010

 

When I saw the picture of conker on my homepage the last thing I expected was to read that he had been ill again! But I'm also glad he is making a quick recovery.

We went through several years of vets' visits with our dogs so I quite understand how you must have felt - & how relieved you feel now that he has recovered. Though there's always that lingering fear that he will get ill again & you will have to rush off to the vets with him again.

He looks so wonderful in the photo, was it taken before or after he became ill? I like the photo so much I didn't hesitate to add him to my favourites! Hope he continues to get better & that you both can get more rest from the vets.

29 Aug, 2010

 

Thanks Balcony...
This picture was taken when Conker was feeling better again.
... Yes. Too many vet visits can be wearying ...
I coped at the time, and it is only afterwards I realised how very worried I was about Conker ...

I guess the recent rain has well-watered your allotment ...
... gives you a break from all that watering !

29 Aug, 2010

 

"I guess the recent rain has well-watered your allotment ...
... gives you a break from all that watering !"

You are quite right about that! Now that time I use for weeding! See my new blog which I posted last night.

Glad to see Conker is so much better! :-) Hope you have a restful Bank Holiday today. We are going to a town close by for a few hours, to visit the famous street market. It's been many years since we last went.

30 Aug, 2010

 

We left our little dog with an emergency vet after being told he needed to be closely watched overnight, only to receive a phone call to say he could come home after all, Id guess he cried & howled so much they didn't want him their - hoping Conker continues to enjoy good health

30 Aug, 2010

 

Lovely pic Terra.Your grass is looking so lovely and green too not a weed in sight .. ;-)

30 Aug, 2010

 

lovely pic TT.... do hope conker keeps well.....

30 Aug, 2010

 

Hadn't noticed that Rich, Terra how do you do it???

31 Aug, 2010

 

Sorry to hear about Conkers poorly episode and glad to hear that he is feeling better again.They are such a worry are'nt they, it is a good job we love them to bits.You take care...x

31 Aug, 2010

 

He's Beautiful TT. Lovely pic. So glad he's on the mend. x

31 Aug, 2010

 

I'm afraid I've just seen this Tt , so sorry for all your upset, I suppose he will be susceptible to viruses etc until his immune system is fully recovered. So glad to hear he picked up so quickly, he looks a picture of health here. Rosie and Meg send lots of licks. You are allowed to give yourself lots of treats to make up for all the worry and stress, it's the Law! Look after yourself :-) x

31 Aug, 2010

 

Thanks everyone ...
Conker seems fit and happy again ...

but it was scary while he had those few days of illness ...
... fingers crossed he'll stay well now ... xxx

3 Sep, 2010

 

We never stop wagging here in the Midlands Terra:-)

3 Sep, 2010

 

Thank you, Bornagain, Rosie and Meg xxx

3 Sep, 2010

 

Conker looks really well TT :o))
I like the Ilex too - Variegated foliage lightens the place up I always think.

6 Sep, 2010

 

Glad to hear that Conker is doing OK now & that he hasn't been unwell since. :-)

6 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks Hywel and Balcony...
Unfortunately Conker went from apparently very well indeed to having yet another couple of days of illness.

It is such a roller coaster of emotions for me with his health.... Good news is that he is on the mend again now :o)))

7 Sep, 2010

 

Glad to hear it TT :o))

7 Sep, 2010

 

He's better than yesterday, Hywel ...
... eating ... :o)))

7 Sep, 2010

 

That's good !

7 Sep, 2010

 

Conker sends you a hug. :o)

7 Sep, 2010

 

Oh Tt it must be hard for you at the moment, thinking of you and your boys, let's hope it's just a little blip and it's all one way now:-) x

7 Sep, 2010

 

Thank you Bornagain ...
Conker is more perky than yesterday.
He seems to take about 48 hours to recover from these little "blips" x

7 Sep, 2010

 

Thank you Conker :o) x
I'm sending one back :o)

7 Sep, 2010

 

Sorry to hear about that "blip" again, TT. I can sympathise with you after having had our dogs ill as well. Glad to hear he's improving again. Hope he stays well.

7 Sep, 2010

 

No wonder I didn't get an answer to a PM I sent you! I' was just checking on you, as I hadn't seen you around - and found this. I'm sure it was absolutely dreadful - but he's up and doing fine again, thank goodness.

Lots of love from me and Henry. xxxx

8 Sep, 2010

 

Thank you...
I'm sorry. I did miss several PMs at the time ...
I hope Henry is now responding well to his medication. xxx

8 Sep, 2010

 

We have our appointment this afternoon, Tt. There are a few concerns to sort out - and no apology needed! xxx

8 Sep, 2010

 

I hope you get some useful answers ...
It's very stressful when our dogs are apparently fit and happy one day, and then unwell the next. I'm on a roller-coaster of emotions with Conker all the time ....

8 Sep, 2010

 

I've updated my blog, Tt.

I agree - it's really, really difficult to handle it all. xxx

8 Sep, 2010

 

Hope all is well with Conker, have been away, so just catching up with things.

14 Sep, 2010

 

Conker seems quite well at the moment thanks Dotty...
occasionally "throaty", but enjoying life and eating well. :o)

15 Sep, 2010

 

Bless him!!!

My best wishes for both of you!!!

During a stressful situation our immune systems drops a bit... so take care of yourself too TT!!!

Love

Aleyna

17 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks Aleyna ~
Conker sends hugs ...
I hope you are well. xxx

17 Sep, 2010

 

~he looks so handsome and bright~hope he is feeling better!
xxxx

20 Sep, 2010

 

Hi TT, Conker, Truffle and Crocus, i'm glad to hear that Conker is feeling so much better. Take care all of you. xxx

20 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks Arlene and Skillen ...
Conker is feeling very well at the moment, and enjoying helping in my gardens, and outings to charity dog shows ...

Hugs from Truffle and Crocus also.. xxx

22 Sep, 2010

 

I'm so pleased to hear that he is well & enjoying himself, TT! :-))

26 Sep, 2010

30 Oct, 2010

 

what a sin, hopefully he wont be sick anymore. he is such a beautiful dog

16 Dec, 2010

 

Thanks....
Conker has been looking very well lately, so fingers crossed for his vet-clinic check-up in the new year ...

16 Dec, 2010

 

Conker is a heroe. He evidently aroused hundreds of gardeners. LOL.
(I like the photo, too. Conker looks like Lassie).

16 Apr, 2011

 

Thanks Katarina ..
Conker is a very special boy...

and he is like a little Lassie ...
he can do lots of tricks ..
such as push toy prams and toy mowers ! :o)

16 Apr, 2011

 

LOL.

16 Apr, 2011

 

Ah, that's lovely! Nothing at all like Blue Maid, but lovely! :)

3 Oct, 2012

 

Thank you :o)
