Back from Asia to be met at the airport by ' the font ' and Wilf . It was a French national holiday and the terminal was full to the gunnals with noisy vacationers. Not that this seething mass of humanity bothered Wilf . Bored with waiting he had turned on his back, stuck his paws in the air and drifted off into a happy , oblivious to everything , sleep . It took him a few seconds to wake up and realise that I was tickling his tummy . Then he was on his feet doing his ' Rejoice with me , for I have found my sheep which was lost ' dance - paws and rear end moving in uncoordinated excitement .
He's been a bit under the weather for the last few days . Maybe it's stress , maybe it's the liver .The intake of water has become alarming - a full bowl every hour during the day and perhaps every two hours at night . Truly manic . If he doesn't improve a trip to the vets is on the cards . Wilf of course is unconcerned . He takes the view that being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It just means you've got to look past the imperfections .
I hope you brought him back a t-shirt! :)ReplyDelete
Oh I can just imagine dear Wilfy at the airport and his joy on waking up and realising who was tickling his tummy. Do hope that his raging thirst settles down.ReplyDelete
Oh, we hope it's the kind vet, if he has to go.ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
You always make such great comments at the end. Thanks I love reading your blog.ReplyDelete
YAY!!! We knew you won't be away long. I bet its more stress than anything else. Being hopeful that he'll be back to normal soon.ReplyDelete
Didya buy the tiger mat? hehehehe
Dear Wilf wil be so pleased you're home. I rejoice with him.ReplyDelete
x (for Wilf!)
I wish Wilf the best and hope that the excessive thirst is just a little blip. Good luck.ReplyDelete
Hello Angus! I'm glad you're home safely, and I know Wilf and 'the font' are too, I hope your trip was a successful one!ReplyDelete
Wilf's thoughts at the end of your post is spot on, and is something for all of us to keep in mind! I so hope he is feeling better!
Thank goodness the flock is together again!ReplyDelete
I seem to recall another time, when a flock member went missing for a few days , Wilf's consumption of water increased alarmingly but returned to normal when the flock was together again. Praying - hard- that it will be the same this time.
Better tiger mats than tiger skins.
I'm glad you returned safely! Perhaps Wilf was off because he was worried about you. I hope that all is well with him soon!ReplyDelete
By the way, great pictures today!
Whew! The world is spinning properly once again with Wilf's little flock exactly where they belong. All are thinking of Wilf and hoping this thirsty business is very temporary.DBHReplyDelete
I am sending positive thoughts that Wilf was only missing you and nothing more serious!ReplyDelete
Your travel pace is awe inspiring... I need a nap too! If it is of any comfort, our 12 year old standard poodle, the Diva Halle, drinks copious amounts of water (has done so all of her life) .... enjoy the weekend! Ina in AlaskaReplyDelete
I know he's tickled to have you safely home.ReplyDelete
Hey, it's stressbul being s sheepdog and having the flock scattered around the globe. Feel better, Wilfy!ReplyDelete
i think he truly suffers when you leave. i know you have to go. but...wish you didn't! it's like having matt dillon ride out of town. it was always such a relief when he came back. hugs to beloved wilfy. to awaken with your best bud tickling your tummy ... well life just doesn't get much better than that! tjReplyDelete
Oh bother!! I hope this is just a "thing" that will truly pass....keep on going Wilf! Handsome boy! Would love to see a video of your welcome home dance!!ReplyDelete
I have to post anonymous as I have deleted my Google account because it was giving me too much grief!
With love your Canadian pals,
Dianna along with Tor, Willow and Tucker
We missed you too! We do hope that Wilf's extreme water consumption is indeed the result of stress. Did it start right after you left?ReplyDelete
We all need our daily dose of Wilfdom!
And more tales about your Asian trip!

^^I have this same quote on my blog.
I hope everything is ok with Wilf and that he won't require another visit to the vet.
Kari took the words right out of our mouths. Welcome home, Mongoose. Hope Wilf is doing better. Can you call ahead and schedule an appointment with a specific vet? Mama makes sure we just see our favorite vet, every time.ReplyDelete
