A Brave Wee Dug …

My wee (not so much now) man has found a new friend in my parents cairn terrier.  She can be grumpy with other dogs but she seems to have taken a shine to Pup (unlike another member of her pack – Pup’s dad is not keen on this teenager who is bigger than him and more dominant).  The cairn allows Pup to spread onto her bed during the day and then this evening one of the others told Pup off and the Cairn stood between them and told the other dog to leave Pup alone.

Just now at bedtime I was talking to the cairn and another (my two are both tucked up in their beds) and the cairn cried.  When I looked I could see she had a wound on her shoulder.  We have trimmed the hair away and in the morning she will be off to the vets for a check and some stitches.  We think we know who has inflicted the wound and I am pleased to say it is definitely neither of mine.

Hopefully later tomorrow my two are going for a romp on the beach – the weather is supposed to be calm and almost balmy!   am also supposed to be taking photos of Pup’s wee sister and she is wee compared to my tall lanky lad.  So fingers crossed you can get photos tomorrow … until then here are my boys cosied up with the cairn.

The dogs are not the only bickering squabblers … so looking forward to my own style of peace and quiet next week!

I had a surprise greeting earlier from South Africa; I got to have a little mooch round Tesco … and then I cooked the veggies and rice put out the cold cuts and a salad.  At least it cannot be said I haven’t made myself useful.  Now I am just waiting for the room to cool before I settle to sleep (the heating has been on all day again because one person was chilly).

Here are a few hints as to next week’s topics … The Work Programme (the exposé); maybe an open letter to IDS; and a summary of One Little Word (OLW) 2013 and a preview of OLW 2014 … but first – the beach here we come LOL

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
