BASHFUL’S FIRST DAY DOWN UNDER!


Well..after a good sleep and a fair amount of snoring….yes..snoring…  I heard faint rumblings and went to check on our house guest…..no sign of the little guy…all I could think of was ..great he has travelled over 9 thousand miles and still he wants to keep on rolling!

No ..he hadn’t gone far..just into my Castlemaine Rock…. a unique rock candy made locally for ever….so after a few chats about the dangers of addiction and tooth decay ..we eased into the cold wintry day..think Bashful thought we would be in shorts and t-shirts..poor guy…rug up little dude coldest Spring in 40 years..

After awhile I noticed Bashful was still a bit snuffly…now I know Bacon had told me he had the sniffles but I was concerned..he also seemed a little wonky eyed! hmmmm..ok ..so action plan..

I rang Vet’s all Natural… I spoke to Amy our vet nurse (who also is the proud owner of her own Forrest, a bulldog!) and explained my concerns and what I had noticed.

Amy swung into action and an appointment was made for 11.am with our vet ….Dr Rayya!

Yep…most of you know of her from her bloggie and Facebook…well she is our Vet! cool hey….

Anyhow..off we went..Bashful getting more wonky eyed by the minute…I really was worried.

We arrived and Dr Rayya lead us straight in…and she was thorough….are his Vacc’s in order,what has he eaten,what ports did he stop at…after many questions Dr Rayya began her exam…

CONCLUSION..BASHFUL HAS MILD SNIFFS PROBABLY FROM TRAVELLING IN PLANES…NO NEED TO WORRY ..AND….WELL IT SEEMS HIS WONKY EYES WERE DUE TO THE LIFT FROM THE AIRPORT BY MISS ROO..HE IS NOT DESIGNED FOR POUCH TRAVEL AND THE DIAGNOSIS…..

POUCH HEAD…CAUSES EYES TO GO WONKY …A FIRM ‘OUCH’ BANDAGE FOR A DAY AND THE LITTLE GUY WILL BE A.OKAY

SO THAT WAS DAY ONE..BASHFUL HAS HAD A MIXED GRILL FOR TEA A BIT OF TV A SNUGGLE AND IS PUSHING Z’S!

STAY TUNED FOLKS I AM SURE HE HAS LOT’S OF THINGS TO SHARE WITH YOU!

  1. Oh no. My poor little tyke. That was his longest trip so far. I’m glad your vet got to look at him. And I’m sure he coughed and sniffed more cause she was hubba hubba. I know I would – snorts. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my little pebble. XOXO – Bacon

      • Oh most definitely. That glove would make this little piggy squeal too – heck I’m putting my tail down between my legs now just thinking about it. Dr Rayya would for sure have to give my snout a kiss and a couple of belly rubs before doing that to this little oinker – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

                • Fitting for a bow tie – he’s going to love that. Don’t let them put him in charge of the bachelor party. He knows a lot of shady characters who would be more than willing to help him. I don’t think your son wants a rock stripper showing up – snorts. It might make the show Rocks Gone Wild. XOXO – Bacon

  2. Poor Bashful with his wonky-eye syndrome….why I can imagine that ride with Madame Roo was a bit BUMPY and who wouldn’t have had a headache and/or wonky eyes after that??!! So glad he just had a bit of a cold too – I should think he’s fit as a fiddle (or rock) and ready to REALLY begin sightseeing now! WOO HOO! So he’ll be going to the wedding? He will look very elegant in a bow tie!
