What an exciting start to 2016, 
and I aim to go on as I have started.
Hair coloured (and trimmed), holiday booked, new car bought
No dog shows as yet, but enjoying life as it is.
This year is going to be so much better than last year.

Something that bought a smile to my face, a card I received over Christmas from a Claire Leaman.  Her news was the most wonderful surprise and I would like to share it with you.
In 2000 Lydia and Kim (two sisters from the Community of Sisters of the Church bought a pup from me.  He was the litter brother of Reckless.  They called him Michael (after the saint). He was bought as an 'ice breaker' for young single mums in their care.
In 2004, Claire tells me that the sisters gave him to her to look after.  She was the gardener at the sisters' home at St Gabriels. She tells me that Michael was the most beautiful, intelligent, brave dog she had ever met.  He lived with her in the country enjoying a typical country life travelling in the basket of her bicycle, becoming a local celebrity.  He died July 2015.
I can honestly tell you that this card has bought me such joy, and a wonderful end to a traumatic 2015.
Thank you Claire for your kind thoughts, I will never forget.
