A piece of procutto landed on the floor this morning.....before I bent down to get it, it was gone. I trust she enjoyed it. I missed out."

Pippa is 1 year old today

It's my birthday!        I'm one today.    I quickly got rid of the pink ribbon and chewed it up but I love the new toy   a neighbour's  chihuahua gave me.
Love from Pippa, lick, lick

 'Pippa' is wonderful. We spend a lot of time together and I really love her wiggly cuddles. She still loves squeaky toys although the squeakers are gradually being killed off.

So Cute:… Written by our grand daughter many, many years ago.

… Written by our grand daughter many, many years ago.

When I was about 6 years old, one of my Grandma’s dogs had puppies. I was so excited. They were just so small and delicate, like a breakable vase and also helpless, all they would do was squirm, sleep, eat and make little grunting noises. But one of these pups was special, he would glide around the pen like there was no tomorrow, he would sail like a sailing boat over a calm ocean. He was a sailor. No he was my sailor.
                When he got to about three weeks old he was moving like a speedboat. He was getting faster every day and nothing would stop him, ever. He was the biggest of the litter and at three weeks of age we christened him SAILOR.                                                    
 she is still 'cute'    We love U Jayde

and sadly another Vale.....Pete's son Rico

Our much loved Rico  has also sadly left us.... We first noticed a problem  on the Wednesday as he was unable to keep his food down and he was somewhat quieter than usual, although still managed to follow Lyle around as usual. Wednesday night he wanted me to nurse him while we were watching TV, this was most unusual as given the choice he always sought Lyle's lap, and he did the same Thursday night.
We had our Vet appointment Friday.....
Rico was diagnosed with very large and aggressive tumor filling completely one of his lungs, and it had started to invade the other. Sadly we had to relieve him of his discomfort.
Up until those last few days he had been as happy and lively as ever and at no time appeared in pain.
We miss him so much, he was such a special and amazing dog.
While  he was being shown up until he was almost 8, many children would seek him out for their junior  handlers competition. As they went to walk off with him he would just look back to me "asking is this okay" when I said " off you go good boy",Quite happily off he'd go with them.

 'Rico' aka Grand Ch. Sonree Starlite Rioswing you were one of the very best.
