A Gray Wednesday.
Gordon Onslow Ford
We are having a more relaxed day today, the last two days there were appointments so I have been out of bed earlier, today I won’t get out of bed until later this afternoon.
Once Richie has done the shopping, he is also looking for additional kitchen cupboards, which are urgently needed, so that the kitchen is more efficient.
This morning it looked lovely, blue skies, sunshine, sadly once the curtains were opened, the clouds drifted back and it now looks like there could be more torrential downpours like yesterday.
The rain was so heavy our dogs did what they had to, and then they wanted to get back here as quickly as possible, I am sure they will be happier once they get to run, play, and bark to their heart’s content.
Cyril has become more relaxed, now he has been here for 8 months, which is very noticeable; he is showing every sign of liking his new home, Marleen and us.
And the good life he has here, walks everyday, toys every week, they are good for his confidence.
Confidence being built is the most important thing for Cyril, after nearly 6 years of neglect, no exercise, isolated at home.
He is a good quality dog, I bet they paid alot for him and then did not know what to do with him, one good thing they did was find him a new home, and not a moment too soon.
We got him just before he reached a critical stage; he had long nails, no walks/exercise for 3 years, malnourished, no muscles, he was nearly 6 and looked like a 9 month old puppy.
