It's a Dogs Life

Well the main thing my girls do and most Greyhounds do is sleep on average 16 hours a day.  It sure is a dog's life:)

Greyhounds often sleep with their eyes open, so you have to be careful not to startle them.




The girls and I hope you have a lovely day.  

Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

The Girls

Well the girls and I hope you have all had a good week.  We hope you have nice plans for the weekend.  I think we will be going with the flow.  It's supposed to be a dry weekend with temps around 20, so we might just get out somewhere.

Here are the latest photos of my girls.  The first two are Honey and the last Polly.






Well you have a nice weekend.  Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

On my desk I have a card I made for a swap.  The theme was Alternative/Halloween.

Not much more to do.

Pollys 3rd Gotcha Day (15th September, 2015)

It's Pollys 3rd Gotcha Day it is.






Can't believe I've had Polly three years.  It seems like she has always been here.

She is now 8 1/2 years old.  Apart from Arthritis and corns she is doing well.  She's slowed down, but still enjoys walks and playing with the various toys.  Of course life involves a lot of sleeping, but that's a Greyhound thing.

Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk


My brother and sil came up for a couple of days and we went to Oxburgh Hall on Saturday afternoon.  It's run by the National Trust and as they were members they got in for free.  It cost me £8.90 for the grounds and hall.

Here is a link to the web site about Oxburgh Hall.



Here are the few photos I took.  My batteries were running out and I hadn't taken spares.


















Hope you are having a good day.

It turns out YouTube have changed their policy , so you can't download like we use to from it for the blog music.  It does say something about only download one track at a time rather than a playlist, but I have tried that it it still won't play.  Will keep trying to sort it.

My brother and sil came up for a visit yesterday.  Despite a dismal day we made it down town in the dry in the afternoon.  Then went for a meal at a pub in the evening.  My dessert was Blood Orange and Grenadine Sorbet.  OMG!!!!  It was the best thing I have ever tasted.  Didn't know I liked Grenadine, although I doubt I would as a drink, but it made the sorbet.

My brother and sil will be over a bit later this morning and then we will go somewhere later today.  Then going for a Chinese meal tonight.  When they leave me tonight they will go back to the hotel and leave from there in the morning for home.  A short visit, but still lovely to see them.

I leave you with a photo I took yesterday of Honey.


Hope you have a lovely weekend.
