Sparky had not one, but tho, molars extracted under anaesthetic on Wednesday. At the same time his legs were x-rayed to investigate a slight lameness. There is some unusual bone growth around one of his stifle joints, which needs further specialist opinion.
The upshot is that for the next few days we have to stick to grntle walks on the lead, so our adventures in the countryside are on hold until next week. Meanwhile he is taking plenty of rest.
