So the “Teddy Times” now becomes the “Teddy & Buddy Times” as our canine family grows.
And Buddy is certainly growing! He is now 5 months old and we are hoping will soon grow into his legs and ears.
Buddy has certainly made himself at home in the clinic and takes his role as self-appointed Chief Receptionist Assistant very seriously…although he is a very lazy assistant.
He also seems to misunderstand the words “walking stick” and when a recent client sat down he took the ‘stick’ away. We are investigating what seems to be a case of selective hearing. Not sure we have a hearing device that will fix that one.
Teddy is also enjoying have a little brother, although he is certainly feeling the age difference.
Buddy has been made to feel very welcome with toys and treats from clients which is very much appreciated especially as he is teething and the puppy/shark teeth start to fall out.
Happy Birthday, Teddy!
On the 11th September Teddy turns 7 (or 21 in dog years). For his last birthday, he received dog treats, toys and even a bottle of doggy beer. You can rest assured he will be spoilt with Buddy by his side.
Running Down Dementia 300km Challenge
Our “Running Down Dementia 300km Challenge” is unfortunately currently on hold. In June Sarah had an operation, for which she is currently recuperating, and has to hold off on the running for a bit. So, the plan is to extend the Challenge for the amount of time out of running (currently 3 months). We have so far raised £300 in total, although Teddy has raised more money than Sarah and he was very pleased to smugly announce that fact on a recent social media post.
Thank you to everyone for your support and, whilst the challenge is taking longer than originally planned, the winner is Alzheimer’s Research with the money raised and also in the conversations we are sparking in raising awareness of the link between hearing loss and dementia.
