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 …

Top Of The World

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St.Austell for breakfast. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…
