When Dylan met Cyd!

It's been a while, but life in Spain has been somewhat hectic - more of that to come. But picking up where I left off, this is about the little abandoned puppy. Dyls and I arrived in Spain and met this little one we have adopted. This is her story. Four months ago, dog lovers … Continue reading When Dylan met Cyd!

Oh this year we’re off to sunny Spain!

On a rainy dull and very windy Saturday, Dylan and I set sail for Spain. Twenty nine hours on a ferry from Portsmouth to Santander - what could possibly go wrong? We turned up at the ferry port. Dylan, as usual, asleep the minute she gets in a car. The wind was gathering and the … Continue reading Oh this year we’re off to sunny Spain!

The adventure begins!

You know that feeling when you are confident you have everything under control? And how in a split second it all goes pear shaped? Welcome to my world. The car was loaded. Yes we looked like the Beverley Hillbillies but hey ho! Up early to kick to the kerb (well put out for the bin … Continue reading The adventure begins!

All recalls lead to Dylan!

We have been missing from puppy class as I had the audacity to go on holiday and, for the first time, leave Dylan at home. I fretted the entire week, she apparently was her usual bouncy self until I got home, and then she turned on the stink eye, sulking and stealth poos - can’t … Continue reading All recalls lead to Dylan!

Mops, mice and memories

Our summer in France is going far too fast. I can hardly believe we have been here since June. As I write this Dylan is doing zoomies round the garden with her cousins Harley and Wiglet, and she's smiling. I'm listening to the birds singing, and looking at the never ending fields that have already … Continue reading Mops, mice and memories

The Princess and the Pea!A fairytail of love, kindness and Welshies

, Once upon a time there were two little Welshie girls. The first known as Princess Wiglet did not have the best start in life. She was bred to be a show dog, but unfortunately her curly piglet like tail was not considered to be correct for the show arena and so before she was … Continue reading The Princess and the Pea!A fairytail of love, kindness and Welshies

A funny old Sunday

And so today has been a funny old day. But more of that later. The past week has been so busy getting everything organised for our summer in France. And yes cutting the grass is on the agenda, but that's Tuesday's task! Like my friend Moira said recently in her blog, moisfrenchadventure - and by … Continue reading A funny old Sunday

They break your heart

On Sunday there was great excitement because Dylan, who is usually Billy no mates (for anyone outside the UK this means she's on her own when we go out) had a date. Friends were coming over to the park - yep the infamous park (see previous post) but I figured Sunday = family day all … Continue reading They break your heart

Oh no, not the ferret!

Well it was a fun night again at puppy class - but at least I didn't end up in the broom cupboard - result! The trainer met us at the door. Instead of the mad fur blur stampede into class - usually led by Dylan (no surprise there)- we had to line up, our puppies … Continue reading Oh no, not the ferret!
