Fortunately, when it happened (I was walking Dexter on lead) there were several people around who came to assist. The Shepherd actually ran out of the (open) gate and just latched onto him. It all came as a bit of a shock to Dexter - who really fancies himself as a mini-Rottweiller! There was a bit of a skirmish before the other dog was chased inside.
Fortunately (again) the owners, when approached, agreed to pay the $400 (!) vet bill. Poor Dex had to had surgery and a mini-drain put in to run the yukky fluid out which would have otherwise accumulated. That will be taken out tomorrow and the stitches out a week later I think.
He is fine - only indignant that he has been confined to the laundry for the time being (and has to wear a bucket on his head)!
Football news - great game, but unfortunately the boys' team weren't the winners. They lost 32/34 - but it was such an exciting game! It could have gone either way. Lots of sad faces on the night, but they brightened after the team BBQ on the weekend. They played a good fair game and that's the main thing. It has been a wonderful season for them all.
Strange weather over the weekend here - very windy on Saturday. How was your weekend? I made my first batch of Esiyo overnight and it's now setting in the fridge. Those of you who make it - do you mainly make the natural Greek one? or what is your favourite? Do you find that it works out a lot cheaper?
Cheers for now - Wendy
Comments from my previous post
S - how did you go? did you try the recipe?
Fiona from Arbordale Farm - thanks for the link, another interesting blog to follow! We didn't make it over your way after all. Hope you had a great time.
Kim - thanks for your hints. I will definitely be trying a few different ways to make the yoghurt once I get used to it. Good advice re the cupboard too - luckily I have a spot already set aside.
**Anne** - glad to hear of another Esiyo fan! Give the slice a try and see what you think.... I've now restocked my supply of ground ginger and ready for some more ....... that could be dangerous!
Fi - I knew that it was a popular Kiwi recipe.... I know that I'll be tempted to make it again. Glad you're a EsiYo fan also.
Shaheen - I've always thought the Esiyo was a bit gimmicky, but glad that I've got one now. I know that yoghurt can be made with a thermos - let us know how you go!
