We had the most wonderful dog, pretty, intelligent, loving..its just over 7 years since she died. We loved her to bits, and still have reminders of her around the place.
At first anything doggy would bring tears to my eyes, but now I remember all the happy exploits, foibles and games we had. I started this blog after we lost her, so there is nothing I can lead you back to, but then maybe with all the walks, I would not have had sufficient time to start a blog.
One of the books which D borrowed from the library and which I read on holiday was Edward Stourton's Diary of a Dog Walker. It was very entertaining and reminded me of the many of the aspects of having a dog. The book is due back to the library today.
Its so amusing and well written, that I have already bought a copy, to give as a present.
