I am unwell again! Mistress said how nice it was that I was back to normal and them POW i twist/pop whatever it is in my neck/back. Mistress had to ring the vet and spoke to my private vet and it was decided to put me back on painkillers and tablets to reduce swelling. The good news is I am back using the bed I was given for Christmas and I am getting lots of snuggles when I am not doing guest relations work. I was hoping that having a bad back may mean that I could not have my annual bath but i heard mistress saying as it was going to be hot tomorrow it may be the ideal day….I think I will keep my head down and be very quiet and she may forget.
I am still busy doing my guest relations work. So many people for me to entertain, at the moment we have a full house (10 guests) and they all like me so I am still busy as I try to say hello to all of them as they come back from their days out.
2 of my friends came back to visit me, they brought me some healthy dog treats all the way from Germany. I was so excited to see them, the guests and the German food. I feel so European now with my German food. They were yummy and I was allowed them each day. I do hope they come back and see me again soon. this time they invited me to Devon to go on beaches then to go to Germany with them, I was very tempted but I think mistress would miss me and I do have a very important job.
I think some of my friends are returning this week-end, do you remember the 4 lovely German guests who came to stay with us last September, well they are coming back. They LOVED me! everytime they came back they spent about 20 minutes with me in the hall giving me lots of tummy tickles. They invited me to go and stay with them but unfortunately when I wrote that I was going with them some other guests got upset so I had to stay. I hope that they remember me.
I am so excited, this week has been very busy with guests coming and going, a lot were only here for one night as they were walking somewhere new each day. It seems that the notice mistress put on the door asking walkers to remove their walking boots is mostly working and it means I get to check out the boots to smell all the wonderful fields they have walked through. I am on my final week of tablets (hopefully) so I think I am feeling better although I miss all the extra titbits that the tablets are put in, should be watching my waist really! But I am so excited as I now have an Instagram account nixiehound and I already have 50 followers from around the world! So if you have an Instagram account please do follow me, mistress takes photos of me most days…not all flattering but hopefully they may make you smile.

I have been so busy this week we had 5 lovely guests from Norway for 4 nights and of course they loved me, each evening I would join them in the garden while they had a cold drink before heading off to eat.
Now we have more guests who also love me and I was busy checking everything was OK for them whilst mistress was busy getting a pot of coffee and some chocolate cake for them.
I am still getting better I went off to see my vet, very special appointment as he was not seeing any other patients just ME! I seem to be making a recovery although nobody really knows what was wrong with me. I am coming off the drugs slowly which is OK but it means that I get less treats concealing the tablets! I get so excited when the tablets are got ready for me that I trip everyone over which sometimes means that they extra bits on the floor. I happy to still be getting better as it means I can go for longer walks again. Thank you to my lovely vet for making me feel better.

I have more new friends and they ‘LOVE’ me. They just fell in love with me… or they were missing their 5 rescue dogs left at home while they were here walking in the Cotswolds. They tickled my tummy and made such a fuss of me it was great and even better now I am feeling better as now I can roll on my back without it hurting, so therefore more tummy tickles! Maybe they will come back and see me again? I have met lots of new people this week, a couple of them were not too keen on me but the majority liked me and some really enjoyed my business card.
Well I am sorry I have not written for a while as I have been a bit under the weather but I am now beginning to feel better. I went along to my vet and he said that I seemed to be doing OK but now I have to be weaned off the steroids, master keeps calling me a junkie dog as I get so excited at having my tablets as they are always in a wonderful treat. I have even lost a little weight, the vet said is muscle as I have not been able to go on long walks. Mistress said the moment she knew I was feeling better was when I helpfully got the post for her!
As some of you will know I have not been too well, no one is quite sure what is wrong with me but it seems like I have got a trapped nerve in my neck. I am on lots of pills, master says I rattle! but I am trying to put a brave face on it all just not quite the happy chappie I normally am! As I am not allowed to go for long walks , I need to rest to cheer me up, mistress decided we would go and walk in to the bluebell wood. I was very tired afterwards but it was a beautiful sight that we both enjoy each year. Bluebells just gently swaying in the breeze, and so good as a back drop for my portrait!
