The old deg has been fading all summer, and died almost two weeks ago. It was very sudden, quick and easy for him but, of course, hard for me.
However, the house is full of life and joy. I am now providing daycare for two puppies – one just in the afternoons, and one all day. Both are bitches, and the owners are friends, so it’s important the dogs are, too.
Meet Della, a big girl now, all of seventeen weeks old and a mysterious mix of lurcher and greyhound.
And Sunny, the baby, a ten week old border collie from a local farm.
And today’s barking contest. Be glad it’s only a still, not a video with sound!
