Wetlands, Stroller and Adelaide.

Benji likes his new Pet Stroller

The wounds from the attack have cleared up and the fur is growing back, so there is no on-going concerns there. However there is a concern in that we know what is causing the limping on the right back leg. It appears when he jumped off Annabell’s chair to run to meet me when I came home,  caused more than a  sprain when he landed badly. Examinations  at the Vet. show that he has torn the ligament.

Presently he is in no  serious pain but I have to go to Adelaide this weekend so I will get him booked in for day surgery as soon as I get back. I cannot do it before I go since Annabell would not be able to look after him, as would be required. And here was me thinking that a few days in the stroller and he would be as right as rain. Oh, I have ordered a new stroller/ walker since this one is doing him good and killing me  :o)  This one is way too low for me. Pushing  it for any distance is really painful on the arms. I thought at first  that it was mainly because it was many years since I pushed a pram, but it’s more than that – the lowness of the  unit itself. So, the new stroller should arrive on Friday and that is 105cm at the rear – the pushing end. I think that will be a lot more comfortable;  well for me. Benji just  goes to sleep in the mornings. The new stroller is larger giving him more room to spread out and it is easier to set up and collapse

Morning has broken at the Wetlands.

We do not go walking around the area at the moment. There are too many dogs. We still go out at 6am, but I drive to the wetlands and we do our walking there. There are quite a few people there at that time even although it is still dark – mainly female walkers and joggers. They are all very friendly and Benji has a bit of a fan club.. I was asked to go with the Wellness Group on a Friday morning, but they have several people with dogs, and dogs are what I am trying to avoid at the moment.

I was given an old camera – a Canon Power Shot S1 IS.   I was asked to take it to a shop in Adelaide that deals with Camera equipment and the best offer I got for it was $25. It is a very old Digital Camera – good in its day and has been well looked after but it was suggested the best I could do is donate it to  an op-shop and let them get a few  dollars for it. I didn’t and I still have it. I was  instructed to get the $25 and donate it to the RFDS, so that’s what I will do. There is also an old tripod that goes with it, but that’s not all that great, so not really worth anything – I wouldn’t use it.

Peek-a-Boo.

The drive to Adelaide was uneventful, although there are road works everywhere – and I mean everywhere, the  Port Augusta Road for about  30 klms. The main North Road. the Port Wakefield Road – three places including Port Wakefield itself. The  road works are so extensive, with single lane traffic and in one place, a convoy system. I was at meetings all day Saturday and did not arrive home until after 6pm. Annabell was a bit concerned because she knows I do not like being on the Port Augusta Road  at dark because of the problems of Kangaroos.  Not a good idea to hit one at 110 KPH.

The Old Canon Camera – still in great condition after 12 years.

The funeral I spoke about in a previous post is this coming Wednesday. I’ll travel down Wednesday morning and come back home Thursday Morning. Benji wont be too pleased that I am going  away again, but  there we are and unfortunately it means delaying the operation on his back leg for another week. Yes, today this is a fairly simple day surgery but he needs to be looked after until he is recovered and Annabell – unfortunately –  can’t do that.

  1. we like the new stroller and we have our paws crossed for the surgery day… we totally agree, it is better to be there after, sometimes dogs have special ideas after….

  2. Yes, he is quite comfortable in his new stroller, and it is much easier for me to push and generally to operate, so good all around. Will get the surgery done as soo as possible.

  3. Well phooey…so sorry to hear our favorite Down Under pupster got injured. We’re sending loads of healing energy for when he started the recovery process and rides in the stroller.

    Can I just say that morning light image is breathtaking?? Wow. That little point and shoot Canon was always a good little camera. Ear rubs for Benji.
