A New Family Member







Isn't he beautiful?

Hope all you with snow are going on ok...
We continue to have torrential downpours & a hail storm here earlier!

Any doggie advice, vegan recipes, etc would be greatly appreciated...

Have a great weekend everyone!

Oh, Barney is precious! What a beautiful boy! And a lucky one - kudos to you for giving him a loving, forever home!

I was going to share Molly's great stash of vegan recipes for dogs and other wonderful, informative stuff for happy, healthy pups but I see she's also one of your followers, so I'll let her do it! :-)

Oh bless him, I'm so glad you took him, I'm sure it'll all work out and he'll have a lovely life with you! x

He is beautiful, look at that lovely smiling face. I hope he likes a bath after all that mud! X

Thanks everyone - he's adorable, though has trashed 2 tennis balls already... He needs to lose weight, but seems really fit for a 10 year old! We've got a few days off with him now, which is nice - but the kitties are in hiding upstairs, so we keep popping up & giving them plenty of cuddles too!

Congratulations on your very handsome new family member! What a sweet, adorable boy he is. <3

It makes me so sad that he was abandoned like that. Poor sweetie. He's so very lucky to have such a wonderful new home, though. I know you'll both love him so very much. He looks like a very gentle soul.

If you have any questions or need advice on anything, feel free to email me or contact me through any of our sites. I'll help if I can! :)

Oh, and make sure to keep us updated on how you all get on!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
