Today the dog turns 13.  Is it mad to celebrate a dog's birthday?  A dog who lives on the other side of the world from you and who is 'not long for this world'?


(They are old photos).

January 2012

See, not just cats ...

The cats are all well and were delighted when we returned home.  Ratty did another walkabout last week, in celebration I suspect, of the full moon.  He was determined to come out for our evening walk with us then took off into the golf course.  He was AWOL for 36 hours, but when I came home from hospital on Thursday morning, he was in the back garden, lounging on one of the chairs.  He came bounding in, full of song when he heard my voice.

It has been a stressful few weeks, especially in London where I ended up visiting three professors, rather than my usual one.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to meet any of our fellow bloggers, next time perhaps?

You're home! I was just starting to feel uneasy about the silence, but like Ratty, you return. Sorry London wasn't all you wanted. But what a dear old dog — why not celebrate and recollect happy days with him?

I'm with Penelope here, Isabel. I was beginning to worry about you. Never mind about not meeting any new bloggers. We can always connect on line. In your typically understated way, I take it you're okay. At least your cats think so.

Good to see you back. :-)

What lovely photos, Georgie looks a darling!

I am glad that all the cats were there to welcome you home. x

I was concerned about your absense too.

And then I thought that perhaps Ratty had done his usual turn.

Theres always next time Isabel and you would have been bored witless with my prattling about the Court Case!

Joining in to say glad you are back, you were missed!

Next time - and I hope you'll have a better trip. I hope the professors were able to suggest useful things for you.

I would definitely celebrate Georgie, who looks like an enchanting dog.

Definitely celebrate Georgie's birthday, the dear old boy.

Sorry to hear you've had a wearying time - I hope the Profs have agreed on a way forward for you.
