June 12th Sunday. Completely uneventful, except that Barny had a bad night & was so groggy today that (Ray mothering him to take him down to the vet) I rang the vet & asked him to come out. Mr Skelton, bless his heart, came out and gave him two injections & instructions to take him in for more tomorrow. He seems a good deal better this evening, but I, having been keyed up to expect the worst, am now feeling completely zonked.
And thus, given Rosemary Sutcliff’s love for her dogs, not really “completely uneventful” at all!
