Professors Gottfried Locker and Christoph Zielinski would like to make a statement regarding George Michael.
Further to our previous statement Mr. Michael is being treated here for pneumonia and nothing else.
The latest development in Mr. Michael's case - which has evolved from a severe pneumococcal infection - necessitated intensive care due to its severity and extension. We are happy to announce that Mr Michael is improving steadily with an impressive regression of pneumonic symptoms and follows a steady rate of improvement as hoped.
There are no other health issues with regards to the patient other than the underlying pneumonic disorder, and no further measures had to be taken.
Mr. Michael is receiving precisely the same treatment as any ordinary patient in Austria would receive at the hospital for this disease.
As we said previously, complete rest and peace and quiet are mandatory.
We wish to make it clear that we are putting this statement out and there will be no further comment.

|Enya, Jezi, Ziva and Danni|
Just a bit of "Officialish" news re George. David posted on twitter ... "david__austin David Austin
Absolutely no one that I know has or ever would talk to the press. There has been only one statement. Most of what you read has been made up." Taking it of course that this is David as yet his account is not verified!

|Lord Of The Lovelies|
Well where do I start? With my darling George I guess. There's all kinds of speculation written about him in the press and I guess my head is a little cabbaged at the moment. Yet again the news is totally inconsistent, he has everything from being in a coma to having a heart condition. Of course the gutter press have also tactfully mentioned Aids in their report, again. Notice I said tactfully, wouldn't be the first time Yog has sued them! Still over the years I have learnt to never believe what I read in a rag or on their Internet sites. I, at least will wait for "official" news.
Ok, I'm gutted, I'm honestly gutted for two reasons. Firstly I'm gutted my idol is ill and I'm worried about him. His health as always, is paramount. Like it or not, George is such an important part of my life, and has been for so long that I feel like a member of my immediate family is in his predicament. My heart goes out to you Georgios.
Secondly a selfish part of me is gutted for me, gutted that this year I'm missing out on my GM fix. I so needed to see him, so needed a break from what is sometimes a mundane existence. I really needed to get away and loose myself in Yog World, If only for a day or two I needed it. I guess I'm tired, hell I've not had a holiday since 1995 ... Oh No, don't feel sorry for me, I have a lovely husband and It's my choice to have so many animal. I wouldn't have it any other way, but sometimes we all need something else to focus on, we all need our escapism.
George my lovely, Get Well soon ... We will be waiting.
|Jezi Baba, Enya May and Ziva David|
Talking of Enya May I had to take her to the vets this week, she had a lump the size of an egg on her head. It was enormous, though didn't seem to bother her. The vet diagnosed that she had hit the crown on her head, probably during rough and tumble with her sisters. It may take weeks to go down completely, but no harm done! He also diagnosed that that the spots on her belly is teenage acne which will eventually go away.
Jezi is living up to her name ... Truly a witchy poo puppy....Guess I best say no more incase she puts a spell on me!
Ziva is the apple of my eye, though I'm upset that a catalogue of events at ring craft seem to have affected her temperament. This is a very vulnerable age and sadly Ziva seems to have blow everything out of proportion. I know Cesar Milan says to "live for the now," but sadly bad experiences at this age can affect the character of a puppy. I've never had to deal with a nervous puppy before and I'm really finding it quite disheartening. Hell I know what to do, I've told hundreds over 20 odd years of instructing but I guess it's different when it's you and yours. Over 20 years of owning this breed and this is a new ball game for me. Still whatever happens, baby Ziva is here with me to stay.
Hopefully I'll have a photo of Tara to share with you shortly and watch this space for news.....

Thinking About You My Lovely
It’s with great sadness that GeorgeMichael.com must announce the postponement of the remaining dates on the Symphonica tour due to George’s on-going battle with pneumonia.
While George is receiving excellent medical care and is responding to treatment and slowly improving, to ensure his complete well-being, George’s doctors have advised that he cannot perform the rest of his Symphonica tour and that he instead takes a full and complete rest.
Prof. Dr. Christoph Zielinski, Chairman, Department of Medicine General Hospital - Medical University Vienna, Austria and Prof. Dr. Thomas Staudinger, Specialist in Internal Medicine and Intensive Care Medicine have stated the following:
"George Michael has severe community acquired pneumonia and is being treated as an inpatient. His condition has stabilized and he is responding to treatment. From the current point of view, the time until recovery cannot be estimated, but he will not be able to perform the rest of the tour. Besides medical treatment, complete rest and peace and quiet are mandatory."
As a result, all of the UK dates of the Symphonica European tour will be postponed. George was very much looking forward to bringing his tour back home and performing for his loyal and dedicated UK fan base.
Discussions and preparations are currently under way in order to arrange the rescheduled dates and further announcements will be made at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime, tickets holders are asked to retain their tickets

|Mikey with Enya and Jezi|
Makes me realise that my thoughts on litter sisters have always been right... keeping two is going to be hard work, keeping 4 is impossible and I now have the war wounds to prove it!

Sometimes it all gets to be too much. Sometimes the tears flow and the mood is low but no one thing can really take blame. Sometimes when all the chocolate has been devoured and still the mood has not improved, sometimes there's no way out except you......
Sometimes I feels pathetically sorry for myself and my life, sometimes this is simply not enough and I wish for more, sometimes I hates everything about myself and my inadequacies, sometimes there's no way out except you.....
Sometimes it feels like every one's out to get me. Sometimes the dogs just drive me insane. Sometimes I cry because laughing is just too hard and sometimes their humor just sadness me. Sometimes there's no way out except you ...... sometimes, yeah sometimes, sometimes was today!
|Steve Celebrating that Danni's not leaving home ... yet!|
This lady has a 9 month old male GSD, a Tirgram Tim son. I told her that therefore she would need to make sure they never mated as Tim and Robbi (Danni's dad) are half brothers. Initially she said no problem, but later rang to tell me that having discussed it with her husband they decided they could not out rule breeding .... so by mutual agreement we decided Danni would not be going!
So are Danni and Enya still for sale? Yes of course they are, keeping 4 would just be ludicrous, but until the home/time is right then the little one's, like Ziva and Jezi will get all we can give them....even if it kills us in the process...lol!

But only cause they've been on the go all morning and are sleepy now!!!
|Enya, Danni, Ziva and Jezi|
I've only had one experince of the condition in the past. Lia had it in 1997 .... I remember feeling so sad for her they are in so much pain with it. and now poor Jezi is crying on the sofa!
"Panosteitis, or Pano as it is commonly called, is a disease which affects the long bones in growing young dogs, mostly of the larger breeds, but occasionally is seen in some smaller breeds as well. German Shepherds are one of the breeds who are often presented with lameness and limb pain between 5 and 18 months of age, and many veterinarians diagnose Pano as it's cause.
The first signs of Pano are often a slight lameness in one leg, progressing to a severe limp and possibly non-use of the affected leg. It may last for days to weeks, and may seem to resolve then recur in the same leg, or another one. Some dogs can exhibit lameness in more than one, or even all legs at the same time. Often Pano shows up in a foreleg first. Bouts of lameness can come and go, seemingly for months. Some dogs suffer from Pano off and on until they are nearing 2 years of age or even beyond.. Most cases start near the end of rapid growth, about 5 to 6 months of age, and are cleared up by 12 to 18 months of age. Males seem to be more affected than females, but both sexes can exhibit signs.
Radiographic signs, those seen on an x-ray, can be elusive when diagnosing Pano. The bones most affected are the radius and ulna (the foreleg), the humerus (upper arm), the femur (thigh) and the tibia (lower rear leg). Pano is an inflammation of the bone itself, the cortex (outer shell) becomes less distinct and foggy, and the interior of the bone seems to increase in density. Pano lesions are not always seen on an X-ray even though the dog may be showing clinical signs of lameness and pain."
