Happy cheery little weed. Everything is bursting out at a frightening rate. Frightening, mainly, because I've kind of missed it happening. But things are about to change again. Not sure how my neuralgia will handle it but... L has chosen a new dog!!!
Her name is Tia, a 5yr old black Lab who's owner got ill. So far she seems like a dream compared to Marley, none of that dominant puppish energy that was so hard for L to deal with. In fact, she's a bit overweight from lack of excersice in recent months so she plods around a bit, no sign that she'll run into the road after rabbits, or anything that blows.
She seems happy with a gentle walk, which is lucky since I literally couldn't handle anything faster than a granny jkust now. But jmust knowing there will be a dog in my life again is making me feel better mentally, which should have a knock on effect physically. Let's hope it happens soon as in this warm weather I'd really love to take her for country walks like these feilds at the back of my parents house...
We have her this week as a try before you buy. It's a bit of a spanner in the works as I had so much work planned over this weekend, and this week, and now it's all going to have to slide a bit to accomodate the new visitor - but I think she is well worth it. L is back at work this morning so it's just me to be with her while she settles in. When I went round to get her this morning she hadn't chewed anything, a very good sign. And she was so soppy and happy to see me. Ah, can you feel the love? :0)
So if I'm a bit tardy with posts, replies etc. (well, more than usual), you'll know why.
