Thank you to everyone who has sent kind messages about Todd, many of you will have met him when stalking with me, and he has been responsible for some incredible retrieves whilst stalking with me.
Hopefully he will make a full recovery, and later today I hope to be able to pick him up from the vets and bring him home. Having not had a great deal of sleep over the past 3 days I am hopeful that he will be back in the field later this spring on the Roe Bucks. However on his return home he will be confined to barracks until he is 100% fit and well.
Although Todd is nearly 10 years old he is a very fit, lean muscular hound and many who see him think he is a young dog (certainly acts like it sometimes) I am convinced that due to his active working life that this has helped him through his operation.
My grateful thanks to the Seers Croft veterinary practice near Horsham, and the very professional treatment they have given throughout this traumatic period. Now off to the shops to make sure we have plenty of fresh chicken and mince for when I get my boy back home today.
