Injured Oh dear

Post by LizP on Sun Oct 01 2017, 08:04

For the past couple of weeks we've been nursing Chaos's hobbly leg. I'm not quite sure what the problem is, sometimes I think it's toes and sometimes maybe shoulder, he get worried at the mere thought of being examined even by me so his signals are a bit confused. We decided not to take him to the vet as he's so scared, since his bottom ops he's terrified and we've not managed to get him over it (I have tried!). I was pretty sure Keith would only advise rest to start off with anyway.

By the end of last week he was doing pretty well, slightly showing on hard surfaces but pretty well 100% on grass.

We're now in Normandy and the first thing he did yesterday was hurl around the garden, which is huge and on quite a slope, before we could stop him and he's now hopping again. Fortunately, I brought some leftover Loxicom so I've put him on that and we're booked to see the vet here on Tuesday anyway.

But no lovely long walks in the hills Sad . It's lovely being here anyway and the girls will still get to go with George but I'll be on 'trying to keep Chaos quiet' duties. I might need a trip to the butcher to get him another bone.

Oh no! Wishing Chaos a speedy recovery and lots of courage at a foreign vet. Despite the lack of walks out with the girls, I’m sure the change of scenery will do him good Smile

He's in the middle of 'a taste of France' - I've stuffed his Kong with brie. It's keeping him very happy!

Hopefully it'll just be a sprain Liz. I guess if it keeps happening more investigation might be needed Sad

We've just been for a 15 minute potter on the line in the woods and he looks 100%, and he only had a 15kg dose of Loxicom last night (he weighs about 25kg), so my fingers are crossed. He wasn't impressed by the girls going out with my husband without him earlier, though. Sad

Hopefully we'll be able to do longer walks later in the week, as long as we can plan something vaguely flat. It's rather steep round here!

Fingers crossed... he seems to be on the mend. With only a tiny bit of Loxicom, he did a 'proper' short walk this morning, about 4km, and looked fine. I'll stop the Loxicom now and we'll go for a bit longer tomorrow. I think we still need to be careful in the garden, no 0-60 downhill following by a handbrake turn at the bottom, just in case, but I'm hoping we're out of the woods. Or maybe not as we're on the edge of a huge forest!

Yipee! We just did a 6.5km walk, including hills, after no Loxicom for 36 hours and he's fine. I think we'll still keep to the 'no charging down hill in the garden' rule, just in case, but at least we can now do a couple more proper walks this week.

So the holiday is now great! This area is just so wonderful, the walking amazing and you never meet anyone. I am distinctly eyeing up the house that is for sale over the road... not sure George is ready for that yet though.

We're home and have, in fact, put in an offer on the house!!! Or sort of, it's dependant on whether they will agree to get the septic tank upgraded as we're reluctant to take it on knowing it's failed the inspection but not knowing what it would cost to get it passed.

Hopefully! It's just nail biting at the moment waiting to hear if they'll agree to do the work. It's one of those awkward divorce situations, with joint owners on non-speaks, so it might take some time. Otherwise we have to get the SPANC (love the acronym!) report and see what has to be done and whether we'd undertake it from here.

I have to say, thank heavens for speaking good French otherwise we wouldn't even have picked up the issue.

Maybe if they drop heavily the price, it would be worthwhile ?
Not sure what it didn’t pass during the inspection. Could be that it leaks or else it’s not a certified model/size for the house.

What kind of delay are you in for before you have a reply ?

We'd rather they fix the septic tank, it would be a nightmare to try and get it done from here. We think it's just that it's not all going into one system - a 'fosse a toutes eaux' is what's required - but having not seen the SPANC report there could also be issues with the soak-away/filtration as well. If that's the case you're talking about digging up half the garden - not great if you live in the same country but even worse if it's in a different one.

The upside, of course, is that our knowledge of French domestic sewerage legislation has increased massively (from zero) over the last few days!

I'm assuming it'll take a few days for them to sort themselves out at least, but we're not in a hurry and no one else is interested. I keep telling myself.
