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
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!
Dylan has a date!
So after last week when there was no puppy class - because the chosen puppies which didn't include Dyls, were taking their Bronze Good Citizen award, we were back this week. And a bit late in posting as we've had all sorts of things going on this week with decorators and carpet fitters! Aslan the … Continue reading Dylan has a date!
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
Dylan,what have you got in your mouth now?
Oh we have a problem. As I've shared before, Dylan does have the touch of the Artful Dodger about her. Ever the opportunist, my Naughty little Welshie will steal anything she shouldn't. The soundtrack of summer is "Dylan, what have you got in your mouth now?" Well actually, that's the polite version - it's more … Continue reading Dylan,what have you got in your mouth now?
France has been hit by storm Dylan!
So it's been nearly three weeks since I took Dylan out of school (aka puppy class) early and we headed to France for the summer. And what a few weeks it's been! Thanks to her Welshie cousins, Harley and Wiglet, Dyls is getting quite an education - a bit like a French finishing school in … Continue reading France has been hit by storm Dylan!
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
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!
And so Dylan invaded France….
Bonjour mes amies! So a perfect spring break was in store. Dylan and I, plus our friends Jenny and Russ squashed into my little Peugeot - and believe me it was bursting at the seams with all sorts of weird - Marmite crisps, smoked paprika - and wonderful things our French hosts and friends Mois … Continue reading And so Dylan invaded France….
