Rivers know this



Wilf spends most of his day in the ordered chaos of my office . While I write he slumbers . Twice he ventures out of the front gate to christen the fire hydrant. A tiring twenty metres there and back . Mid-morning and ' the font ' returns . After a brief display of tail wagging enthusiasm he quickly settles down and falls asleep . The vet thinks maybe there was a problem with the latest batch of insulin . She might be right . In the evening he eats some kibbles and then curls up at the front door for the night. This old fellow is a fighter .

'' Rivers know this : there is no hurry . We shall get there someday ''.

  1. That is worrisome that the insulin may have been a problem!

  3. Happy to see Wilfee ate some kibbles, and to know that the Font returns.
    Hope it is only a question of insulin.
    I wish you a lovely Sunday, all my thoughts are with you.
    Bonne journée à vous deux et bisous à mon tendre Wilfee.

  5. Wilf knows the menu may improve with the return of 'the font'. Hope it was just a bad batch.

  6. Winnie the Pooh was right when he said that... There is no hurry. We all get there at the right time.

    I'm so glad that Wilf is better, he certainly is a fighter!

  8. the little fellow is a fighter indeed.
    he'll surely be better now the font is back.
    i think it rocks his small world when one of you leaves. are they trying a new type insulin or did the vet mean something wrong with the insulin itself! horrible thought!
    love and long hugs to blessed wilfee,

  9. I'm so glad that Wilf is doing a bit better. As much as I hate the thought of a bad batch of medicine, it's better than the alternative. He is a fighter - he's proven it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

  10. I'm glad he seems a little better today, and I sure hope you've got a better batch of insulin to give him now! Wilf is the toughest little dog I know.

  15. Nothing keeps our Wilf down! Not even a bad run of insulin. He continues to inspire us and we, in turn, come to admire and love him even more.
    And when it comes to admiration, the only thing we can say is thank God for you and The Font in this world. It's is a much better place because you are in it.

  16. We're so sorry Wilf has been having such a rough time. Hope the new insulin is working better. Keep on trucking, Wilf!

    Hope some of the farmhouses fireplaces are still in working order. You should enjoy many hours of good fires out of all that oak! Is the arborist going to pay to fix the barn roof tiles he knocked off? Bet your home insurance agent just loves getting calls from Angus: "Hey, guys, you'll never believe what's happened now!" You probably headline their monthly newsletter.
