Experience teaches .

For Wilf a day spent sleeping . He rouses himself in the evening for half a bowl of freshly boiled broccoli enlivened with a little langoustine stock .

Some unexpected excitement at 3.30 am when the old fellow fails to return from his early morning pit stop . A torch wielding Angus , clad in dressing gown and a pair of Crocs, scours the garden only to find him peacefully curled up asleep in what's left of the peony border. Confusion over time and place becoming a more recurrent part of his daily routine .

A trip to the vets scheduled for later today . Experience of life with Wilf teaches us that all his symptoms will magically disappear the very second he arrives in the surgery . Guaranteed .


  1. what a great post! You really look so fabulous. :))

  2. I am going to complain to Gail about the quality of my evening meals...
    Paws crossed that the vet goes well today Wilfy.
    Toodle pip!
    PS from G+B Thank you for your nice comments yesterday

  3. Well - broccoli and langoustine - a new combination for us - gourmet dog food!
    Keeping all our fingers and paws crossed that everything is fine later today - same happened to me with our limbing dog - as soon she saw the vet she could walk again - which led the south italian doctor to remark that the dog was in a better condition than we were...
    Love to the whole polar bear family - Susanne, Daisy and Foxiie
    Well Wilf seems to love Peonies...

  4. Don't we all seem to be better when visiting the surgery? Hope Wilfs visit goes well.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  5. All the best thoughts and prayers for Wilf today, but I hope you don't mind, we're keeping just a few for Todd today.

  6. I love the thought of your little polar bear curled up in the peony boarder as peonies are something I've always wished I could grow here, but it is too warm, so I have roses instead.

    Thinking of you all as you visit the vet, and sending lots of love to Wilf.

  7. Hopeful that it all goes well today for our sweet friend :)

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  8. Ahhhh... Sweet Wilf. Thanks for your diligent posts.

  9. I hope that the trip to the surgery cures sweet Wilf. Thinking of you.

  10. A stressful visit for PON and family alike. Of course, they all act better at the vets. They muster their last ounce of strength in an attempt to avoid that terrible place. And If Wilf is using his last ounce of strength, I hope he will be treated by a loving, compassionate vet.
    You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers, dear Wilf. We love you so.
    God bless all.

  11. Prayers for the vet visit and for your heart in searching for the slumbering polar bear wanna-be. I know my dogs get oh, so much better on entering the vets, too! Miraculous!

  12. Strange how that happens, isn't it? You feel better as soon as you walk thru the doors. I don't get it. We are cheering for Wilf over here and keeping fingers crossed that's its just a blip. Keep on going Wilf!!

    With love from your Canadian pals,
    Dianna along with Tor, Willow and Tucker

  13. I hope that the trip to the vet's office does the trick! Wilf, have you sprouted a blue tail?

  14. We'll include your Dr. V-E-T visit in our prayers tonight, Wilf.

    Sending lots of hugs and positive vibes you way, Wilf!

    Piappies Fudgie, Princess, Frappie, Mocha, Sugar, Wai-Pai, Wai-Max & Forgie

  15. Strange how that seems to happen to me too! Only I don't visit the vet, of course!
