I lost Dylan on October 10th 2019. There I’ve said it. Although these seven words cannot begin to describe the grief, the pain, the heartache. Someone once said to me “She’ll break your heart one day” and yes she did - though I didn’t expect it to be so soon. The days and weeks after … Continue reading Heartache and hope
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!
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!
I have been musing over what we call our dogs. Probably because I've just got back from the gym and Dylan has tried - successfully I might add - to untie my trainer laces which I didn't notice until I tripped over them and nearly fell down the stairs. Mmm.... judging by the smirk on … Continue reading What do you call yours!
Puppy class resumed somewhat later than planned after the holidays as our trainer was unwell. Thankfully nothing serious - probably the thought she was starting the new term with Dylan still in her class caused her to lay in a darkened room with a cold compress across her forehead! It's all change at class. Molly … Continue reading Never ask a lady her age!
So after missing the last two weeks puppy class as I was full of cold one week and worked late the other, Dylan and I were back for the puppy social event of the year- the puppy Christmas party. Now in our absence, turns out that the Cavapoos and original members of Dylan's girlband, Molly … Continue reading Ho ho no! It’s the puppy class Christmas party!
Last week, Dyls and I reached a crossroads. Did we carry on with puppy class, after being dropped yet again from the Good Citizen Bronze, or did we raise the white flag and give up? Well we decided to carry on as Dylan loves her weekly social gathering - she is after all the most … Continue reading Well that proved ‘em wrong!
Dylan and I have finally won an award. Not the coveted Kennel Club Bronze that is slipping further from our grasp, but next week Dylan and I will be officially the longest serving members of puppy class plus. At the moment, Dylan is stomping round the bedroom in pure Welshie sulk mood. I think the … Continue reading Do we carry on?
Back at puppy class after a weeks break and Dylan was raring to go. Watch out world! After all it's only ten days until the Bronze Good Citizen test. Or is it? Boo was missing tonight - seems she's has started her second season and will miss the test. But Mollie the Cavapoo was back … Continue reading Dylan gets dropped!
After tonight, I think our poor trainer has finally admitted defeat! And strangely it wasn't just down to Dylan- though of course, the little monster did pull quite a few moves out of the bag! Literally! Following last week when we were told Dylan wasn't ready to take her Bronze Good Citizen, the trainer had … Continue reading I think we’ve broken her!
