    We can't walk far but we can still spoon.

    Both Sam and I are a bit stir crazy from being hobbled. Sam's sore knee has not improved much so she is now getting some X-rays done on Monday. While she is not to be walked much if I did not take her out at all she would run round the house like a nutter. On balance i thought a short walk along the cycle track would keep us both sane. plus I needed some wood for some carving I had planned.



    Russ was over for a visit and came with us. When we got to the fallen birch tree I wanted to get some wood from he volunteered to cut it up while I rested. This getting about on crutches is hard work.



    Sam had a bit of a wander about but it was no more than a bit of sniffing around. She managed to resist pelting about. Probably a combination of her sore knee and not seeing anything worth chasing.



    Once back home we got the fire lit as it was turning quite cold out. Then I settled down in front of the fire to start carving.



    Sam split her time between watching me carve and pinning Russ to the couch.



    I was carving some spoons for Jo's mum whose birthday is today (Happy Birthday Viv). The first one was finished quicker than i thought and with no blood spilled.



    This evening I have finished another couple of spoons while Sam keeps trying to eat bits of the wood chips. Not as much fun as a long walk but better than doing nothing

    Any news about Sam's knee ?

    Yes. The X-ray shows a slight rupture to her cruciate ligament. It could be treated with just extended rest but we have opted to have her referred to see a specialist with a view to her having it operated on. With an operation it heals sooner, is more robust and less likely to come back as well as reducing the chances of her getting arthritis.

    Even with the operation it will still be a 6 week or so recovery but that's probably about how long before I can walk much anyway.

    Sam was taken to the vets practice in Largs for the X-rays so was away for the day. From what I can gather she had a great time getting petted by everyone. I'm not sure she. Issued us that much ;-)
