Eric's Day Flashback.

The flashback this week comes from March 2009.

I am taking a walk, and after I have finished sniffing the flowers.......

I may even pose for you.............

and then I will go to sleep.

Of course Flynn will join me in our big plant pots and we can snooze together.

Field Games and an Update.

Dad chain harrows the fields when the horses go in a different one in the Spring, and that leaves some small clumps of dried grass and earth lying around. When me and my mum went for a walk, she picked up a small clump and threw it for me to catch.

I'm ready to catch it again.

Got it! Are you going to take it from me?

I'm a good catcher!

I'm ready for the next one.

Got it and I'm going to bunny kick it.

It's a fun game....

but now I need a rest.

I am doing well and as you can see, I am putting some weight back on. I still have a bony back and bum but my sides and belly are filling out better. I am continuing on a very low dose of Prednisalone and take one pill twice a day.
I will have a T4 blood test probably in about a month to see if the steroids have suppressed my thyroid function at all. It does happen sometimes and we are hoping my thyroid numbers may have gone down a bit. My heart and kidney values will be checked too.
I am feeling good and enjoying my walks and playing again and hope to continue to do so.

Sunday Selfies

Time for my selfies again. Oh no, I cut my nose off!!

That's a bit better but not great. I better try again.

I got my nose in this time but a silly fly distracted me and I looked away.

Hmm, maybe that's a bit close, you can see the dirt on my nose where I had it down a mouse hole.

That's better, a nice dreamy shot.
If you biggify, you can see my mum reflected in my eyes in the last two photos.

I am joining the blog hop and you can see more participants at The Cat on my Head.

Eric's Day Flashback - Mooching Around.

This week the Flashback comes from March 2009 and is called:

Mooching Around.

Flynn: Come on mum, give Eric a shout. I'm waiting to go out.

Eric: Won't be a minute, I'm just checking this wheelbarrow out.

Flynn: Stop messing around Eric, we've got mousies to hunt.

Eric: Okay, I'm on my way.

Do you think there are any here Flynn?

Oh drat! There she is with the flashy box again.

Flynn: Just ignore it Eric, I think there is a mousie here.

Flynn: Yikes! What was that?

Flynn: Oh! It was Mr. Pheasant. He made me jump and now the mousie has gone.

Flynn: I was not scared! If I was scared I would have floofed up all over, not just my tail. Well maybe my tail was a little bit scared. I'm going home!

Feel Good Wednesday.

We are having nice sunny and warm weather so I took mum for a walk in one of the bigger fields.

We stopped for a rest on the side of the hill and I rolled over to enjoy the sun.

It feels good on my fur.

I'm warming my belly furs!

Stretching and rolling.

Oops, I nearly rolled down the hill! I better be more careful.

I am feeling much better lately and have more energy. You can see in some of the photo how much weight I lost around my hips but mum thinks I don't feel quite as bony now.

Me and mum haven't been able to visit much the last few days because our internet has been terrible and still is. We are visiting when and where we can but it is very slow so we are sorry if we haven't been able to comment on your blogs.

Sunday Selfies and a Drawing of Flynn.

I am taking part in the Sunday Selfies once again with the Kitties Blue.

You can see all the links to the other selfies at The Cat on my Head.

I saw a great ballpoint pen drawing of Sammy on his blog by Thomas Dalsgaard Clausen. He is doing at least one drawing every day for 2 years, so I went to his site and asked if he would draw Flynn, and here it is.

This is the original photo of Flynn sitting in his favourite pose.
Thank you Thomas, you have done a lovely drawing for us.

Eric's Day Flashback - A Walk in the Fields.

This week the flashback comes from February 2009 and is called:

A Walk in the Fields.

It is a nice sunny day, just right for taking mum for a walk. We'll have a good sniff in the grass.....

......and a chew on it.

Eric: Oh no! She's got the flashy box again. I've got to move fast before she takes my photo.

Flynn: Huh! Where did Eric go?

Oh there he goes walking along the edge of the field.

You can see the track we have made where we always walk in the same place.

Flynn: Hello! Who's been here digging out the hedge? It's probably Mr. Badger or Mr. Fox.

I'll just have a quick look over the hedge and see if I can see who did it.

Flynn: Nope, couldn't see any one. Come on Eric, let's go back and rest on the field roller.

This is a nice sunny spot, what do you think Eric?

Eric: Yup, I could sit here all day and soak up the sunbeams if it wasn't so cold.

Flynn: Well you can stay there if you want to. I'm heading for home to see what's to eat.
It might have been sunny, but it was very cold and we had to floof our furrs to keep warm.
