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.

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

Growing up too fast!

So today has been emotional. I guess unless you are a dog owner, you might not get it - but today Dylan had her first real grown up cut. And I admit I shed a tear before I took her to the groomers, and again when I left her there. Naturally, Dyls skipped off with … Continue reading Growing up too fast!

Can’t take Dylan anywhere!

At the end of last summer I was in Spain with my friend Sue. The poor woman couldn't enjoy her evening Sangria round the pool without me whipping out my phone and showing her yet again the videos and photos of this little chubby puppy I was picking up the day after we got back. … Continue reading Can’t take Dylan anywhere!
