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…

Loitering with Intent

Seagull, Herring Gull through glass with rain

I showed you a photograph last week and asked you to guess what this cheeky seagull, or Herring Gull, was up to. The first guess was from Animalcouriers, and the guess was very close to the truth. A number of you guessed that this seagull was on the scrounge and…

A Postcard

Seagull, Herring Gull through glass with rain

I’ll be back soon after you see this. I’ve missed you all and I’m looking forward to finding out what you’ve been doing while I’ve been away. I’ve had a fantastic time! I’ve walked miles and miles with my bipeds. Here is a photograph taken in one place we stayed.…

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,…

White Rabbit Alice in Wonderland

We left my story when we were driving away from the village where we had met David, the vet, for the first time. (The first part of this tale is Paws for Thought, the second is Public Examination and the third part is Incredulity Overload.) When we drew into the…

Incredulity Overload

Carving, Labuerda

I left my tale where David, the vet, had just told my bipeds I needed antibiotics to make my paw better. (The first part of this story is Paws for Thought and the second is Public Examination.) He went on to say that he would give me an injection straightaway,…

Public Examination

Labuerda, Aragon, Spanish Pyrenees

I left you in suspense last week, I’ll continue the tale from where we left it. We had just climbed back in the car to go and find the vet, using the information from the man in the office of the Ministry of Agriculture. It only took us about fifteen…
