Sorry for the infrequency of postings lately, but I just haven’t felt up to being bright and chatty after losing Ali (thank you for all your kind words) and then last weekend I was hit by a nasty cold bug. Sore throat followed by 2 days of a very, very wet nose and constant sneezing, luckily now I am feeling better although I still have a fuggy head. It must have been bad as at the weekend when I had ample time to indulge and sit around just knitting or crocheting revelling in my germs guilt free I didn’t even feel like doing that – what a waste!
Anyway on to other news. A couple of weeks ago after only 4 days had elapsed after Rocky’s departure we welcomed Raven into our home. He is about 2, black with a slight white muzzle, white chest and little white on his feet. He was in a bad way, very thin, open wounds, broken tail, and with loads of pressure sores after lying on concrete. I can’t say too much way about where he his from at the moment as it looks likely that a cruelty & neglect case may follow. Even in this miserable state and being denied care and companionship he is such a gorgeous, friendly & trusting boy. Over the few days we have had him he has emerged from his ordeal a very lively, puppyish, inquisitive and very loving dog. He is trying to cram over 2 years of being unloved into the last 2 weeks as he loves to sit on your lap – at 32kgs no mean feat! All his open wounds have healed, his coat is beginning to grow back even with a shine and he sits for treats & his dinner.
The first two pictures are on the day we got him and the third picture is with Nigel who he idolizes after being with us a few days.
