It’s all about you…

My blog is named Plutonium Sox after my two dogs, Pluto and Soxa. Whilst both dogs have their own personalities, Soxa is what can only be described as “a character”. 


Soxa is a bit of a hypochondriac and the vets all know her by name. Possibly because they remember the time when the usual dog head collars wouldn’t stop her from pulling out the stitches in her tail and they had to put a bucket on her head… 


A bucket isn’t the only ridiculous thing Soxa has been subjected to wearing. After falling out of our kayak too many times, we decided it was time she had her own boat. And of course, she needed a life jacket! 

And I have to admit there was one occasion when dressing her up wasn’t purely for practical purposes. She was invited to a halloween party but being the only non-human guest didn’t excuse her from having to dress up… 


Soxa has always had health problems. She was born with a shot jaw and a wonky eye and ended up with half a tail as a puppy because it wagged so much that she caught it on all the furniture and ended up getting it infected. In later life, she has suffered from two strokes and arthritis as well as regular injuries resulting from her somewhat carefree attitude to life. Despite this, she has been a fabulously faithful pet. She’s always full of energy, whatever the weather… 


And she always helps out when she can… 


She’s had a tough time the last couple of years what with her health problems and the disruption of Libby turning up. That’s why I’m entering her into a fabulous competition to win £500 to spend on one of the Swell UK, Swell Pets or Swell Reptiles websites. I think it’s about time her luck changed! 

This is an entry into the Tots100/Swell Uk competition.
