When we got to the vet I lifted her out of the car and as we walked in there was no trace of a limp! We went in to see the vet anyway, and as she couldn't find anything wrong we all went outside and she had me walk Holly up and down- and there was the limp. Apparently this happens- the dog gets so tense and/or exited that they forget it hurts.
She had another good look over that leg and still couldn't find anything really wrong except a little tenderness in the elbow. She thinks it is probably a slight sprain, and rather than go to the expense of x-rays and stuff she has put Holly on a mild anti-inflammatory, observation and REST- hence the title of this post. I'm not supposed to take Holly for more than a walk around the block on a leash for the next 3 or 4 days- so no Saxon Woods and no off-leash tennis ball chasing! She is gonna be so wound up and crazy without a good run!
Anyhow, hopefully this is all it is and we can get through the weekend with a crazy dog with untapped energy and we can get back to the woods on Monday! Wish us luck!

Anyone who has received an email from Jackie saying she's in Spain and in need of money, please be assured we are all fine!
Jackie's gmail was compromised by some f*ck in Nigeria- we've changed passwords and are trying to find out exactly what happened.

I can't believe I've just dropped Crispy of at Middle School! The place looked so huge and he's still a little kid (in my eyes). But I'm sure he'l be fine- he proved he can do anything with the SCUBA course in Tobago! ...doesn't stop me wanting to go in with him and protect him though.

I've just come back from dropping Ma, Pa & Josh at the airport to get their flight to London. It was wonderful to spend the time with them, I shall miss them terribly! We have a cab coming at 7:30 to take us to catch our flight to Trinidad and then on to New York. Jake and Crispy are watching House and we'll probably finish what's left in the fridge and have a last plunge before the cab comes.
We owe Malcolm and Annie (owners of the villa) a huge thank you- this has been truly magical!
