Happy New Year 2016

I’d like to wish all my friends a wonderful 2016! I hope you all enjoyed as many walks and treats as I did over the holidays. Santa brought me the biggest chew in the world. The bipeds haven’t managed to get a decent photograph of me with it because we…

One frosty Christmas morning

Clowie, Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees

It was a cold Christmas morning. It was so frosty that it looked like a light covering of snow. We were living in the Spanish Pyrenees. The bipeds decided to take a stroll after breakfast and, of course, I was delighted to accompany them. We wandered down the track behind…

I’m here!

This is just a quick post. I’m sorry I’ve been absent for so long. I’ve missed my friends. Thank you to everyone who has asked after us all. We are all okay, but we’ve been ever so busy. I’ll tell you more about it in the new year. I also…

What’s in a Name?

Clowie, Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees

This post came about because of a chat on Twitter with @writerjeangill. (She is Blanche’s biped.) There was an interesting interview on her blog, featuring some gorgeous photos of a group of Pyrenean Mountain Dogs. We agreed that there should be a group name for Great Pyrenees and we had…

I forgot to tell you

Clowie, Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees, hiding

I’m sorry I forgot to tell you last week that I wouldn’t have a post for you this week. My biped has extra demands on her time, including some things I’d like her to help me with, so we don’t have as much time to blog at present. We are…

In the Middle of the Night

Clowie, Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees

A few weeks ago, I did my last perimeter checks before bed extra carefully as the male biped was away. Then I settled down for the night in my usual spot. I like to stretch out across the front door. It’s easy to keep an eye on the whole household…

Not such a bitter pill to swallow

Mediano, church bell tower, reservoir

I know you’ve been keen to hear how my biped coped with giving me injections and today I’m telling you that part of the tale. (This tale began with Paws for Thought, followed by Public Examination, then Incredulity Overload and Curiouser and Curiouser.) The day after meeting David, the vet,…

Clowie, Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees

I wish to thank Travel Animal Doctor for nominating me for “8 Photos of Happiness”. This was begun by Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet. The rules are at the end of this post. I’ve had fun sorting out photographs that make me happy because they hold special memories. I’ve…
