Getting there...

The final pile of washing from our 2 weeks away is blowing well on the washing line outdoors. Although we are supposed to have a temperature (plus sun) of 20C, it is currently only 15C, grey leaden skies and a howling cold wind - again. Sandwiches for lunch although to be honest, I think a bowl of hearty soup would be more appropriate.

What other news have we got to impart, oh yes....

Introducing Ruby!
Ain't she beautiful, but of course, we are biased. Here she is travelling for 4 hours from DS and DDiL's new home:

She was a bit unsettled for the first hour after that, but she then slept for the last 3 hours, no wee or sick thank goodness. As we had spent the last two weeks with her, we think that helped enormously. When we got home, I put her on the gravel drive and she had a wee! She slept the whole of the first night through to 6am.

The next night she slept until 6:30 ish then began wailing to say the least. We left her for a short time, went in and she was nowhere to be seen:(

She sleeps in a cage with an 80cm x 80cm pen attached with newspaper for toileting. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a flash of movement and she was sitting on DB's chair, cuddled into his cushion. Inspecting the cage, we noticed a soldering fault, just where she had broken out. Also her cage door had shut behind her, locking her out of there.

She had managed to climb up the chair and on seeing us promptly jumped off, both things not much good for her joints - oops!

She whooped with delight when she saw us. To be continued...

  2. Aaaaw I love the gorgeous Ruby! Bet you couldn't resist (I'm thinking she's your new fur baby?). Bet she'll keep you both on your toes - there's nothing like a dog to keep us active!
