We are living in a winter wonderland, in a frozen snow world; everything is slowed down as no one can move fast on the icy surfaces.
Observed several people trying to cycle up the road, it looked scary, wonder how many cyclists have been to Accident & Emergency over the weekend.
Richie has kept me amused with stories of Marleen’s fun outside, she likes the snow, and she runs around at top speed and even delights in rolling in it.
Noticing again today how quiet Marleen is without Spike, we are doing our best to play with her and give her plenty of attention.
Which works to a certain extent but not totally as we are not dogs, she is so obviously missing the interaction with Spike.
Even eating is not so much fun for Marleen right now; she no longer barks excitedly when Richie puts food in her bowl and puts it down for her.
She did play with some toys for awhile just now, showing us what a lovely dog she is, which was good to see.
Hope we find another dog needing a fresh start,, just as Spike needed one in 2002 which we gave him.
Just like we gave Marlee;, when she came to us in 2005, twice as heavy as she should be and severely depressed.
She needed a new home because of a new baby with asthma at her old home, plus she was not getting any exercises.
She came to us with a mega bottle of shampoo, several grooming implements suitable for horses not dogs, and not a single toy.
We introduced her to toys, how to play, gave her a good diet and plenty of exercise which soon helped her to blossom
Be good to give that to another dog.
