How my dogs smell

I've always been fascinated by the superpower of the dog: their nose. You might remember that our beloved Oscar was struck down a few years ago by a mystery Thing that has eaten away the inside of at least one half of his nose, both bone and soft tissue.

Frying tonight

It was so lovely to Facetime with the Boywonder for ages this evening. It’s becoming less stilted and much more easy going and free-flowing. (He’s looking much better than last week, by the way, though his cough...

A tale of two doggies

There are times, and this is one of them, when I do wonder what on earth I was thinking by bringing another dog into our home. Oscar was settling well into being our beloved family pet and recovering from the effects of whatever...

Intimations of mortality

The yipping started at about 5.55 this morning. At first I thought Oscar wanted to be let out of his exclusive pad behind the bifold doors of the new sitting room. It was dark and I hate getting up in the morning so I left it....

Dogs are not allowed upstairs

  Nor are they allowed to sneak next door and retrieve fallen pears from the neighbour’s tree and sneak back and eat them surreptitiously on the patio. Nor should they escape through an open side gate and run off down...

I was lucky enough to be invited to the fabulous wedding of @emproji and @lukephilosophy last weekend. Agonising about what to wear, I came across this gorgeous dress from Bombshell. Even better news: they had my size and it was reduced! It would have been rude not to!
