What counts ?


An overcast start to the day. A chill morning breeze battling with the mild air. The breeze wins . Angus puts on a jacket .

After a trip to the cafe under the arcades we head down to the valley for a quick walk . For a blind dog fresh scents and adventures doubly important . Wilf may not be as fast on his feet as he once was but his enthusiam for sniffing and christening remains undiminished . A full twenty minutes of head down adventure . Then he tires, settles down on the grass verge, and dozes . '' Success is not final , failure is not fatal ; it's the courage to continue that counts ''.

Back home . He smells Swedish meatballs cooking . I'd swear that he skips into the kitchen .

  1. Well, poor Wilf may have some limits, but he seems to live so well within those. And, of course, you are very good at assisting him in his condition.

  2. Skipping to Swedish meatballs. Wilf is for sure a North European in the core of his being.

  4. Bouncing Bertie - They could be southern European meatballs. He'd still skip.
