Marzy is back to his usual self. Was not eating or drinking at first but I used the tried and tested tricks you learn with children and dogs. I got some dog milk to colour his water and it worked a treat and I used half pouches of meat with gravy in his food. Got him eating drinking and he improved rapidly.
Marzy has had another checkup and is doing very well. I'm pleased to say he is as active as ever but likes to come home and snuggle in his bed after a walk.
My lovely boy is doing very well. He has got a few more lumps and bumps. He is due a check up at the vets shortly. He's now 12 and is very active but does like a snooze lying across your knee. Due to lock downs he has missed his friend's and family. Now he even looks forward to the groomer coming to bath him.
Marzy also likes to style his own bed, which he has three of because he's fussy. He also steals the toddlers dummy.
I have now had Marzy for just over 2 years. He is still full of fun and makes me laugh every day.
I took him to the vets for his yearly booster and had him checked over. The vet still recommending leave his face alone as the lump has not grown. However he does have some other fatty lump that have grown slightly.
Food and fun are all that he cares about. I tend to be the fun. The other day he decided that after resisting for 2 years he would jump on the brook. He came out with what can only be described as the biggest grin on his face, and loads of dirty water everywhere else.
He desperately misses the grandchildren as he loves children. So the day before lockdown we met up with them. Suddenly I had a puppy on my hands. No control over him at all. He and the three year old just running and shouting and barking. I'm so lucky, thank you all at CAESSR for the gift of a wonderful Marzy my very best friend.
Marsh (now Marzy) is doing well. The vet has suggested we wait and see if the lump on his face grows or becomes a problem. The operation could be very difficult and it is a big one. He is not in pain and is eating as normal, so I agreed to wait.
Marzy is a cheeky chap with lots of doggy friends and is a really good boy. He loves kids and every day he makes me laugh. The lock down is hard on everyone and Marzy has felt it too. No grandchildren to torment and no cuddles from the humans he meets. So I get licked all over and my clothes slimed. I just feel very lucky to have him. The picture is lovely it's his "WHAT" face when I asked if he wanted to go outside.

I am Marsh's new mummy. He is a lovely, gentle older dog of nine and a half years. I can't believe how lucky I am to have adopted him. Marsh is a very happy boy who loves everyone and is happy to play all day. Unfortunately he has a large lump on his jaw and needs some dental work. This is not holding him back though, he soldiers on in his own sweet way. I have had many rescued spaniels and they have all been precious to me. This boy deserves to have the best treatment possible.
Marsh has had his blood test, but his vet wants to do more tests before carrying out his surgery. Hopefully he will soon be able to have his lump removed.
