Thank you all.

Thank you all for your kind words.
Thinking about it over the weekend I came to the conclusion that while it was a hard thing to do it was actually not a hard decision to make. He was ready to go and it was beholden on me to see that he could with as much grace and ease as possible.

 This morning my lovely friend Missus Moog and the Mooglings came up onto my Hilltop for lunch and a mahoosive dogwalk. Well it was mahoosive for My Assistant's little legs and my recovering lungs. Among everything else that went down last week I had a chest infection and was sent home from work on Friday so My Assistant and I just sat together on the couch in the kitchen feeling sad and a little bit lost.

Being the fabulous friend that she is Missus Moog arrived bearing armloads of fabulousness; a bottle of her delicious rosehip syrup to soothe my horrid cough and this - a stunning project zip bag she made complete with some of that clever, tricksy free-motion picture making stuff all the clever people do.

Can you recognise it?
It is a picture of my ReggieSneggie Black Dog standing on his wall.



  1. Your lovely boy on the wall and the wonderful ditty bag made me cry. I hope you and your assistant are feeling better.

  2. So sorry to hear about your lovely black dog - it's hard to let them go. We still miss our boy a whole year on.

  3. Hello Trash, I'm so sorry to hear about your lovely old man dog. He was such a handsome boy and loyal friend, you must miss him terribly but it is good to think that he was comfortable and so very loved in his last days. You were brave to let him go so compassionately xxx

  4. Awww, now that is a true friend. One who knows exactly what you need when you need it. XO

  5. Lovely way to immortalise your beloved black dog, he'll be with you always xxx

  6. Never easy. Amazing what a big part of our life they fill. Time heals.

  7. I'm glad you like it, even if I managed to make Reggie dog look more like your Assistant ;)

    It was indeed a long dog walk, even with healthy lungs and a long-leggedy Moog but I loved it and it was just what I needed. So good to see you and thank you for that delicious lunch :)
