Long live Joules!

We were extremely relieved to find out today that Joules’ lump is a benign tumour.

Joules as a puppy

He’s seven years old now and I hope he’ll live another seven happy years at least.

I have lovely memories of him as a puppy, seen here sitting on our picnic table.

He was so small that we had to put wire netting across the struts of the parapet railing so that he didn’t wriggle through.

He once grabbed a pair of my knickers from the clothes drier and ran away with them, tangling himself in the legs.

He refused to sleep in the box we had specially made for him but squeaked and yelled until we just let him cuddle up to the other dogs.

He was as much fun to watch as a kitten, with all his little ‘bits’ that he used to pat into life. In fact he still does that. A rawhide chew isn’t of interest until it’s been ‘animated’!

Anyway, the most important thing is that there’s no longer a cloud over his head.

      Thank you! He is such a treasure. So affectionate and responsive, requiring so little to make him happy.
