Well Song broke a nail yesterday whilst we were over at my dad's. Blimey a little bit of blood goes a long way. Anyway, of all her nails, I am glad it was this one as it had been growing almost in a spiral and I was going to have to get the vet to do something.

Song's fine today and doesn't seem to be worrying about it.

I have added a couple of cards to my PurplePoppy Crafting page.



Well I have changed Song's breakfast, as she sometimes didn't eat any of it and often left about half. I am trying her on a chew that is for joint care and a couple of biscuits. She seemed happy enough this morning.

I was going to give her a dental chew each morning as well, but when I had my Jack Russell the vet told me they were fattening and only to give one or two a week.

Well we have a sunny and dry morning, but boy is it cold and set to get colder. Even mention of the white stuff.

Song and I hope life is treating you all kind.

Good morning from a very wet Norfolk. Not looking forward to taking Song for her walk.

Had a busy week, but today is a 'go with the flow' day, so looking forward to it.

Saw this on a fab site (http://www.dogwork.com/) that Kristine on Rescued Insantity (http://rescuedinsanity.com/) recommended.

Dog Philosophy:

If you live by these dog rules, you will be a happier person!
There's a lot we humans can learn from dogs. If you live your life by the same philosophy that dogs do, you will be much better off in life. In the wild, animals fight only for two things, not a fancy car, not clothes or jewelry, they just fight for food or a mate, everything else they get after that is just pure happiness.


1. See life with joy and wonder.
2. Experience the beauty of nature and smell as much as you can.
3. Open your heart to the ones you love.
4. Sometimes you are allowed to break a few rules, go for it.
5. Be loyal, you will keep friends for life.
6. Cravings are good, enjoy them while you can.
7. Make sure you do something fun everyday.
8. Enjoy good foods, savor them like if it was your last meal.
9. Be yourself and you will always have true friends
10. Be persistent and bark until you get what you want.
11. If someone is having a bad day, snuggle the worries away.
12. Enjoy the love of your pack.
13. Delight in the simple joys of a long walk on the beach.
14. Allow people to love you.
15. Less barking, more tail wagging.
16. Celebrate if you feel like it.
17. Get inspire by the simplest things in life.
18. Everything is possible, all you need is love.


I hope everyone is having a good week and that you are looking forward to the weekend.

Well would you look at this smashing ornament my friend's sister made for me. It's actually a pyramid shape. I love it so much I have asked her to make two more going up in size. As with the first one, the next size up will have Song on the front and the largest will have Blue. When they are standing next to each other they will say Song Song Blue, which was Song's racing name.

Hope you are having a good start to the weekend. I've been over at my dad's, so Song has had several turn outs in the garden, which means several mad moments. She's now asleep in her bed with this silly grin on her face:)

Good morning to my lovely blogging friends. Cold but dry here. Forecast says very wet tomorrow.

Still trying to shake this bloomin cold. Every day I seem to feel different with it. Dad has had his longer and he still doesn't feel right.

I've updated my PurplePoppy Crafting page if you'd like a look.

Well you all take care.
