Year of the Dog Day 356

I had to walk to the other side of Manchester today and on my way back to the train station I spotted a very cute puppy tied up outside a shop. I went over to say hello, she was very cute and friendly; I gave her a good fuss but unfortunately I couldn’t spot her owner in the shop so I carried on!

Once I got back to Bolton I spotted a lady walking two dogs so I pulled over in the car to jump out and say hello! I made beautiful Roxy an American Akita my dog of the day. Roxy is very sweet and I gave her a little stroke. Unfortunately Roxy is a little poorly at the moment, she has just been diagnosed with  Volt-Koyanagi-Harada’s Disease, better known as VKH-Like Syndrome (VKH) which is an auto-immune disease. Roxy s currently on steroids which have made her a little subdued. Unfortunately Roxy will have this disease for the rest of her life but they should be able to get her medication levels under control soon. Roxy loves her doggy housemate, they’re best friends!


Beautiful Roxy!
