Hi all

I've had a bit of a bad day today, if I'm being honest. Unfortunatelymy youngest dog has been diagnosed with cancer, and will be operated on next week. The vet says that its likely he'll lose the use of one of his back legs. It's really horrible to think that an animal that has given me nothing but unconditional love, will probably have to drag his leg behind him for the rest of his life. I know it probably sounds stupid.

Anyway I've tried to take my mind of things by browsing the cams, and we've had quite a nice camming day.

Yesterday's results:

1. No. 7, Genet returns to Orpen on 20 points
2. No. 4, Lots of daggha boys on 8 points
3. No. 9, Brave black backed jackal on 7 points
4. No. 2, Big ellie having a sip of water on 4 points

Please choose 4 pics today:

1. BBJ meets hyena
Image


2. Dawn BBJ
Image


3. Wildebeest share water with local troop
Image


4. Ellie relaxing at Satara
Image


5. Guinea fowl line up
Image


6. Warthogs still hanging around
Image


7. Hyena bathing
Image


8. Kudu congregation
Image


9. Kudus visit Orpen
Image


10. Leopard pays a flying visit
Image


11. Ostrich comes a little closer
Image


12.Snake slithering around?
Image

13. Mystery animal
Image

Hi all

I hope everyone's well. Blackjack (our black labrador) has been given 65% chance of survival and will go into surgery next week.

Of course we're all heartbroken.

1. No. 4, Ellie caught on the close up cam on 15 points
2. No. 5 Two BBJs patrolling the Satara waterhole on 12 points
3. No. 2, Nice close up on 10 points
4. No. 7, A new day begins at Orpen with a wonderful sky on 5 points

Dear YFS fans,

Due to the fact that I am sick I will unfortunately not be able to post the YFS tonight.
