Tess hasn't done anything odd for a while, she's loving and happy just like there's nothing wrong. But waiting for her fucosidosis DNA result means we've stalled in our quest to find out what makes her a Jeckyl and Hyde dog. The vet doesn't want to go to neurological tests until we've got this DNA test back. We're just holding our breath. And we're not going to behaviourists until we rule out physical problems.
I've just phoned the Animal Health Trust to see what the wait time for results is likely to be. It's not going to be days, it's going to be weeks - they expect two to three.
They've made a note that it's not a routine test that the dog is potentially poorly, so they promise to go as fast as they can - but the best turnaround they've ever had was 12 days.
Imagine if that was the case in CSI, wouldn't it be very dull slow moving TV!
Maybe she'll be fine, maybe whatever it was has miraculously past?
She's not head butted anyone in over a week.
