Hello Grumpy Bobby here, now that John and Brenda are back off holiday,
you would think things would be back to normal. They are not because Brenda broke her ankle on the Monday before they came home on Friday, John said the Dominican Republic is no place to break bones. It got plastered up there. She went to hospital when she got back to have it checked out on Saturday and they have made her stay in.
They said she has to have an operation, they are doing a cat scan on it they should do a dog scan they might have more luck.
It seems it is a lot worse than they thought her heel and other bones are damaged as well.

Brenda sat relaxing in her wheel chair while John pushed her about in very hot weather, and he said he had to run about for her, well that makes a change. We have been to the beach and the park, so its not so bad but I do wish Brenda was home. I dread to think what the sausage will be like, I hope John does not burn them.

oh my, a broken ankle, my Jeannie has soooooooooo much sympathy.

She dislocated her ankle a few years back, it came up like a hard boiled egg on the side of her ankle and it was soooooooooooooooooo painful.

I do hope it all gets better real soon, the injury sounds quite the severe thing.

The only place to break bones is at home, the good old NHS will see you right, even though we complain about it!

Get well wishes to Brenda, sorry I not been around too much, my J is still recovering from her trip to Aus. And I am recovering from my Hat Fest.

lots of get well Licks to Brenda.

and I hope the sausages don't get burned.....

Marvin xxxxx oh and Jeannie xxxxxxxx

Poor Benda - how painful!! She looks very well in the wheelchair right enough - lovely sun tan!
Poor John, he may not look so well if he has had to push the wheelchair around in the heat!
You were right Bobby you should have gone with them!
Please tell Brenda we are asking for her.
Welcome home!!!!

Oh dear doG! That's not what sposed to happen on holdiay! At least Brenda looks sorta smiley sittin there in that wheelchair!

We'll be thinkin' about her... hopin' the surgery goes well so she can be up chasin' you pretty soon.

You might tell her, in the meantime, to think about changing your profile description now. You aren't a foster dog anymore, Bobby!

Oh no! I hope Brenda is feeling better and home with you soon! The Dominican Republic looks beautiful but I'll make a note not to break any bones if I ever get to go there. Want to know a secret? My mom's sister got a divorce in the Dominican Republic! I'm glad John and Brenda didn't get a divorce while they were there!!!
