Baby Dougal on the mend!

Well what a worrying time it has been at McTavish Towers with Baby Dougal being poorly.  He has been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and has been having loads of medication to keep his tummy healthy.  The vet has him on a special diet, which me and Alfie Bucket like the smell of but mummy won't let us have any!!! 

Baby Dougal has spend the last week officially on 'rest and recuperation', but I think the little guy is getting too used to that now so I think I need to start him on some light duties.  He not fit for full perimeter patrol or covert operations, so we are looking for some less strenuous for him.  I have sent him out to the yard to peek through next door's hedge and report any suspicious movement.  He is wearing his McTavish sweater and Trooper coat so that he doesn't catch a chill.  I hope he remembers where he has hidden his notebook and pencil!  While he is out I am going to investigate his bowl!

This has been a very worrying week here at McTavish Towers (Westie HQ).  My little brother baby Dougal McTavish has been very unwell and right now is in puppy hospital.  He has been very sick and it has confounded the best veterinary minds (well that what they told us they were!).  However after several days in hospital, tests, surgery and a lot of medication there are some promising signs that he his making a bit if improvement.  We certainly have all of our paws crossed here at Westie HQ as we are missing the little man something terrible.  No one can make a sausage sandwich quite like Baby Dougal.

To keep the little guy entertained while encarcerated in puppy prison, oops I mean hospital, we have given him a special covert operations mission.  He is to observe all comings and goings in the puppy hospital and note anything suspicious.  Daddy has smuggled in a pencil and notebook and some night vision goggles for him.  We have reason to believe that there might be some hostiles who have infiltrated the veterinary confines and are trying to extract secret information from confused inmates. We know that Baby Dougal will get to the bottom of this, he is a very good operative and knows just how to inveigle himself and get people to tell him secrets!
