A wise investment


Absolutely beautiful weather . Comfortable, basking on the doorstep, days for Wilf. The exotically named ' gut mud ' already working and the diabetes, which seemed to flare up for no apparent reason, coming back under control.

Yesterday , the family fellow joined me for a leisurely amble through the neighbouring famers apple orchards down to the stream. Walks with an old blind dog are gentle affairs. He'd stroll ten or so yards through the long grass then settle down, sniffing the air , happily listening to the sounds around him. After three or four minutes he'd set off again for another nose down, ten yard, saunter. For me a well invested mano a mano hour . For him a great , independent, canine adventure. " The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone ".

  9. I had those types of walks/rides with my Dad before the end - I felt like he was memorizing everything and remembering those special times still gives me comfort.

  18. We've been away, and I sans computer, so it was a great relief to check back and see how Wilf is doing better with the gut mud and more control of the diabetes.

    His nose obviously is doing double time -- and he's happy with what it reveals. That's what matters!

  19. I'm so glad you have the time that you can spend with him and with us. It would be so hard for so many people who have to leave their pets at home while they go off to work!
