Sarah & George


Sarah left a comment on my last post, as her very handsome labrador, George, has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Many of the people who still check back on this blog know just what a devastating and frightening thing this can be, so please click through to her blog and offer any support you can.

We're sending lots of love and healing thoughts......

First Blackbird of Spring


The "wee bird" is enjoying the Spring sunshine, even if she chooses what looks like a very uncomfortable position to enjoy it in.....

We're getting back to near-normal walks again now, although I'm still really paranoid about her leg problems. We've had a few ups and downs, but she's fine at the moment, although she does get a little stiff in the evenings. I hope this continues to improve, as it's a little worrying for such a young and active dog to have such problems.... It's not in her nature to let it get her down though, and she continues to bounce through the day without a care in the world. We can learn at lot from our dogs!


This photograph was taken through the upstairs window, as she was checking for breaches in garden security - my neighbours cat is her arch enemy. You may need to click on the picture to see this, but just next to her is a blurred shape. The flash was switched off, but the likelihood is that this was caused by the sun reflecting off the window. Regardless of this, I like to think that it might just be my little boy, keeping an eye on us as ever....
