a note for friends of Bruce


A few of you have been in touch to ask how Bruce is doing. Because of a horrible bacterial infection (which was beginning to affect the bones in his foot) he had his thumb amputated a week ago. The wound seems to be healing up well, and since our vets sent his thumb away for microbiology, we’ve discovered the exact nature of the infection. He’s now on an antibiotic that will hopefully finally clear it up. I won’t share a picture of him at the moment (he’s a bit sorry for himself in his cone) but here is a happy shot of him in front of the Buachaille, during one of our photoshoots for the last book.

Tom and I are both much better and hope you are enjoying the festive season. I’ll be back shortly with a look back at the past (very exciting) year, and a wee look forward to the next one!
