May 16th – Memories

Again, love it or hate it, Facebook does pop up some memories which takes us back to different events. This time last year we were a few days into our Motorhome trip up to Scotland, and the weather was great. We took the woofers on a lovely walk on the Northumberland coast. Sitting here inContinue reading “May 16th – Memories”

May 5th – Callie…

4 years ago this little bundle of joy arrived in our home. Being the niece of Velvet, we thought their temperament would be similar…. How wrong could we be.

Feb 27th – Drugs…..

I was half way through writing my post for today when I needed to stop and call the vet. Velvet, our 10 and a half year old flatcoated retriever was not her normal crazy self. She was wobbly, violently sick and twitchy. After talking to the vet on the phone it was clear we neededContinue reading “Feb 27th – Drugs…..”
