Harvey's Christmas crisis

Harvey here to wish you all a yappy New Year!

Mr and Mrs Boss sneezed and sniffed their way through Christmas, as if there was no end to the supply of tissues. To round things off the three of us made an emergency visit to the vet's last weekend, after I had an altercation with a piece of wood in the park.

A nice tasty piece of wood it was too. I was just getting my teeth into it for a really good chew, when, quite unprovoked, a lump of it wedged itself across the roof of my mouth. Jammed fast between my molars, it was. Pesky thing.

Mr and Mrs Boss couldn't fix it, so off we went in the car. The vet had a peer between my jaws, stuck a needle in me, and my eyes grew heavier and heavier. When I woke up, the wood was gone. I was all staggery on my legs, like Mrs Boss when she's drunk too much. And they didn't even let me keep the piece of wood as a souvenir. That was pretty strange, since Mr Boss kept saying what a very expensive piece of wood it was.

Mr Boss says my New Year's Resolution should be to stop eating wood. Mrs Boss says hers is to write more poetry. Sounds like a fun filled year, then. I can hardly wait.

Poor Harvey! My dog likes to chew wood too, though luckily none has got stuck enough that I couldn't remove it (touch wood, cross fingers). She does have a £400 ear following a haematoma, though!

Harvey says: "Arf! A £400 pound ear? Mr and Mrs Boss got off lightly then!"

Oh poor Harvey - and your poor Mr & Mrs Boss! Fancy you getting attacked by that nasty piece of wood - I hope you'll make that resolution and good luck to your mum with her poetry - she could start by writing a poem about your adventures!
That is a lovely picture of you :-) x

Harvey says: "If her poetry doesn't improve, she could switch to pottery. Then she could make something useful, like a new food bowl for me!"

Oh dear, what a terrible time for you all. Hope 2013 is a great year!

Harvey says: "Mrs Boss always has the glums in November and December, so she says she may as well catch a cold then, rather than it spoiling a better time of year!"

Poor Harvey! Bonnie likes eating wood too - I'll have to keep an eye on her.

Oh Harvey, if it makes you feel any better, we've had that exact same thing--Except our boy Josh didn't get the car ride to get it removed, luckily I was able to~~You both are lucky! :-)

Poor Harvey, What an ordeal for you all. I hope you steer clear of wood now and that all of you are fit and well again. x

"And a yappy, miaowy New Year to Rena and Denny."

Happy New Year! I hope you're all better now, Harvey after the unprovoked attack.
Best wishes for 2013 to Mr and Mrs Boss :)

Harvey says: "Arf! Fully recovered, thank you - unlike Mr and Mrs Boss's bank balance."
