Alfie in Hospital

Anthony and I had to drive to the East Neuk of Fife with Alfie yesterday to see the specialist vet. We left him there for analysis and spent the afternoon walking across the seashore. Neither of us was in a particularly good mood though. Of course the following image is clickable.

Once we went back to see the vet we had the news that Alfie needed a knee operation and that if we wanted to it would happen on Wednesday, the very next day. It is quite a serious operation and we were struggling to hold back the tears. The vet gave us some time alone to wipe our faces and arranged for a goodnight kiss for us with Alfie. It was really difficult for us to leave him but I know he is in good hands.
UPDATE: Alfie has had is operation and is recovering well. We will get him home on Thursday.
