I was all set to post some news and photos of the pups now that they have reached two weeks old but that has been overshadowed by Des having an accident.

The poor soul has broken a leg. We don't know exactly how it happened but the most likely thing is that he has jumped off our bed and landed awkwardly. The type of break fits that kind of injury. The paps jump effortlessly on and off our bed on a regular basis, it just seems to have been bad luck that he landed badly. It is quite a bad break and will need to be plated. This is not the simplest thing to do in such a fine boned dog and there is no guarantee that it will be a success, we will just have to hope that it heals well and that he won't end up losing his leg.

Because we have a large dog in the house along with the little ones, we are always careful to avoid anyone being squashed. If anyone was to get injured we would have thought it more likely to have been as a result of squashing......not jumping off the bed.

It's just as well Jana was out with me in the car when it happened or she would probably have been getting the blame!

So please think of Desmond on Thursday when he gets his operation and keep your fingers crossed that it's a success.
