And Pepper has another poor sore paw - its on the big pad in the middle of the right leg this time. This is the third separate pad infection in 6 weeks so discussed with the vet today and if another one crops up we're planning to do biopsies to see if there's anything weird (like an auto-immune disorder) that causing them. Back on yet more bloody antibiotics in the mean time.

Big bad earthquake
Everyone in NZ will know all this but for those of you that don't live here, there was a big earthquake on Saturday in Canterbury (which is in the middle of our South Island). It struck at 0435am and was a 7.1 on the Richter scale. It has caused widespread damage to property across the region but incredibly and thankfully there has been no loss of life (although a Lemur did die at the zoo - he drowned) We used to live (and work) in Christchurch and our families live south of there. I imagine it's been a pretty horrible two days for everyone, especially my old workmates in the Christchurch Emergency Department.
Pictures of the devastation
Now something lighter - I saw how lots of other people had taught their dogs to get a tissue out of the box and and bring it over so we played around with this one afternoon (and destroyed an entire box of tissues in the process) Such fun! Such mess......
