Ozzie the Spinone
Ozzie is a six-year old Italian Spinone Gundog breed. It seems that wherever we go, town or country, many people are interested, want to say 'hello' and know more. So we created this blog.

A 36 kilo hairy gundog ninja is perhaps hard to imagine. Amongst our daughter’s school friends, ‘ninja’ has become a verb, as in ‘to do a Ninja’. Well I can now exclusively reveal that our Italian Spinone can do a ninja, too.
Delighted to say that Ozzie’s leg seems to have recovered by itself. The inflammation has settled and he has been moving freely and not even bothering to lick it. This is a real relief, because we are about to go to the coast of Northumberland for half-term week and we expect plenty of walking, on the beaches, in the Cheviots, and around Berwick, Alnwick and the like. We are staying in a holiday let with close friends. They don’t have a dog themselves – but Ozzie has adopted them anyway.
Ozzie’s foot has flared up again, looks like we are back to the vet. The wound after surgery was healing well and Ozzie has been enjoying the liberty of being off the lead again – it has been purgatory for all concerned keeping him on the lead – but yesterday it was looking angry again, and today he has begun limping and licking it. We tried to cover it up with an old sock but I think he had that off in less than five minutes, which is pretty unusual, so it must be bothering him.
