For the love of dogs.
I woke up this morning hoping that Ollie would be okay. He was alright, considering his current problems, and happy to see me of course.
Not long after, one of my good friends telephoned from his home on the south coast, and we had some discussion about what might be causing these problems for my dog.
That got me thinking about how much care and concern there has been for Ollie since I mentioned on this blog that he was ill.
The two posts I published about him being ill received 145 Likes, and over 100 comments. Together, they had 250 views, and some readers also emailed me outside of the blog, or shared the posts on Twitter.
From all over the world, people expressed genuine concern about a dog they had only ever seen photos of, and read about on my blog.
American blogger Elizabeth Slaughter left this touching comment.
‘I am quite worried. I feel as if he is all of our dog.’
Connecting through a love of dogs, or any pets, is yet another example of what a wonderful place our blogging community is.
I would like to thank you all, and to let you know how much that is appreciated.
