happy halloween

I don't have any cute festive dog photos, but my friend Karen certainly does. Check out adorable Taivas doing her pumpkin impersonation.

And here are Jedi and Ahsoka doing their bit to celebrate in Australia.

Tarmo visit

A few weeks ago Stacey & Shane stopped by with Tarmo for an hour on their way home from holiday in Cornwall. It was wonderful to see them all - especially as we hadn't seen Tarmo since he left home more than a year ago. He and Maija had a great time playing together, although it was more or less impossible to get a photo of that. Nonetheless, I did get a couple of still shots in the car park before they left.

And, lo & behold, check out his side saddle sit:

Oh, there are few things more pathetic looking than a bald Lappy. Yet, with agonising regularity they have an enormous moult and lose all their undercoat - and sometimes most of their topcoat as well. Witness poor little Maija. She will, perhaps, never forgive me for publishing this terrible photo of her looking her absolute worst. But the good news is that it grows back better than ever. Eventually.

thank you

We've had so many lovely messages about Annie from so many people. Thank you all. I know there is nothing to say on these sad occasions, but it really has helped to know how much she touched the lives of so many.
