Happy Birthday …..

Hello everyone,

Today is a very special day at our place. we have to celebrate three birthdays/

First of all, we have Lady Zayra of the three Turnips (Zayra). She became 11 years old today.

Secondly (and third) we have the two sisters Vaskebjorns Fleur du Cap and Vaskebjorns Svannah P. Both became two years old today/ Especially Savannah is a surprise as she is suffering from Tetralogy of Fallot and was not supposed to get old. This was discovered when we had a heartscan with 9 weeks for her because our vet heard a heart murmur. At the moment she is trying to set the record 😉

Obviously we had to eat a lot of cake today 😉

Puppies

Hello everyone,

As you might know we had two Weimaraners (lady Xena of the Three Turnips and Lady Zayra of the Three Turnips). Unfortunately Xena died of bone cancer. As we are always keeping an eye on Weimaraner news we also learned that The Three Turnips have puppies ;-). Coen and Nicole (who took over the Weimaraner breeding from Freek and Anita) have 6 adorable little ones. We are going to have a peek at them soon, but in the meantime ……….

Are they cute or are they cute 😉

Zayra was already nervous for a couple of days because a little present was on its way. Today it arrived and she is finally a complete Diva 😉

With pain in our heart ….

Hello everyone,

Yesterday evening when our Xena wanted to get of the couch, her leg got stuck on one or another way. She obviously had a lot of pain and it was very hard to calm her down. She was really upset.

After a good hour, she relaxed a bit. Nevertheless she wanted to stay close to us. After some time more we were able to put her on the couch so she would be more comfortable.

Later that evening we decided to take her for her evening walk without the other two dogs.  Walking was very difficult for her. She could not put weight on her back leg.

During the night we made sure she could not get up the stairs so she would not be able to fall.

This morning she still had problems walking and we decided to go to the vet. After the first examination the vet wanted to take an x-ray.

The outcome was very bad though, Xena had a tumor in her back leg that ate away most of her bone. She was also in a lot of pain. The vet said that she could give her very strong painkillers to get her over the weekend. We then took the decission not to do that.

In our opinion the interest of the dog goes first and we did not want Xena to suffer.

So we decided to let her go, she has deserved her rest without any further suffering.

This grant old lady born on the 4th of June 1999, became 12 years and 8 moths old.

We will always remember her.

De grote operatie.

Hallo allemaal,
 
Weer even een berichtje uit Almere.
Gisteren was het een spannende dag. We hadden namelijk een tijdje geleden besloten Zayra en Ocean te laten helpen en dat is dus gisteren gebeurd.
 
Gisterochtend de honden naar de dierenarts gebracht. Aldaar aangekomen deed ik de achterklep open en Zayra en Ocean dachte, ha leuk … feest, en vlogen naar binnen. We waren een tikkie vroeg dus moesten  we wachten. Na een korte tijd mochten we naar binnen en kregen de dames een middel toegediend om lekker te gaan slapen. Gelukkig waren ze wel als eerste aan de beurt.
 
Ik moest gewoon naar min werk dus op naar Hoofddorp. Om 11 uur gebeld met de dierenarts en alles was erg goed gegaan, maar uiteraard sliepen de twee nog. In de middag kon ik weer bellen om te kijken of Zayra en Ocean al wakker waren en zowaar … ze waren al wakker. De auto weer ingeladen en op naar Almere om de dames op te halen. Ze waren redelijk te spreken dus dat was wel handig (ze konden zelf naar de auto lopen Open mond)
 
Eenmaal thuis gekomen de dames weer uitgeladen en naar binnen gebracht. Alles was nog steeds in orde. Zayra moest nog wel even spugen, maar ja wat wil je na zo’n operatie.
 
Ondertussen is het een dag later. Zayra is erg goed te pas en weer net zo tierig als voor die tijd. Ocean voelt zich nog niet optimaal en vind zichzelf nog erg zielig, maar er zit progressie in.
 
Het enige nadeel is nu dat ocean steeds aan de wond wil zitten en dat mag natuurlijk niet. We zitten dus de hele dag in haar nek om te zorgen dat ze van het litteken afblijft. Daardoor kunnen we niet veel doen en dat is wel lekker rustig Knipoogje.
 
Groetjes
