Year of the Dog Day 200

We have family visiting this weekend so we decided to take them to the excellent IWM North today as they’ve never been! We had a great visit and decided to take a stroll over the bridge to have a little look round Media City. When we got to the bridge I spotted a very tall and handsome dog coming towards us so I went over the say hello. Monty is a very tall German Shorthaired Pointer, he was the biggest in his litter! He’s a friendly boy and I got to give him a good stroke; I even got a wet nose kiss! Monty had to have an operation last Friday on two of his cruciate ligaments. Fortunately it was keyhole surgery so he didn’t have a massive scar. He’s doing really well considering he’d only just had his operation and could walk round pretty normally; lovely boy! Fortunately Monty’s humans got him insured, so far  he’s had to have £11,500 worth of treatment, fingers crossed its all ok now!

Handsome Monty!
