A Happy Anniversary!


Today marks the day a year ago that a certain little black thing came to stay.

Tilly thought her new home was OK, and has been hanging around ever since.....

She's gone from being a nervous, scrawny, eel-like thing with a scarred leg, to being a confident little bundle of joy.

She's put up with tears, lunacy, and a fairly chaotic home-life. And that's just in the first year.

She still likes to be independant, and can get a little feisty with dominant bitches who don't show her due reverance.

She bounces around all day without a care in the world, happily accepting any attention I give her, and not really complaining too much when things don't go her way.

She's sleek, beautiful, cute, funny, fast, and frighteningly bright.

Best of all.....

She's mine.

Graham,
Thanks for the kind comments on such a tough day.

Hugs to you, your mum, and to Tilly too!

yes, she IS! yours with a vengeance! she obviously absolutely adores you!

it's so lovely to know that you got through the anniversary, and that you are okay, graham. that first year, after losing a beloved pet companion/soulmate is so bloody hard. i know that from painful experience, and empathise with you completely.

tilly is such a joyous little soul, though, isn't she! of COURSE you will never be able to forget prince - nobody could expect that - but you know that he found TT for you! and that he's probably watching over you and tilly, and thinking 'i did a great job, there!'

it's so lovely to read you in a happier mode, and so GREAT that you are posting again!! i do so enjoy hearing about tilly's doings! particularly rabbits, because google is a monster where cats are concerned!

Hi Graham,

Our 8 year old Rottie cross was diagnosed with lymphoma in September and I'm looking for all the info, stories of other people's experiences, etc, that I can find. I've been checking out your blog and wanted to thank you for writing it, and to give you my condolences. It sounds like Prince was a wonderful boy, and I'm so sorry that you lost him to lymphoma. I hope Tilly is helping you to feel better and that you get to celebrate many more happy anniversaries with her!
