Well,we’re having a bit of sunshine lately and Mum is pretty pleased and goes round in the garden taking pictures of flowers – yes we have flowering plants here in the middle of winter. This is one of her favourites. It’s an orange Hamamelis or Witch Hazel.
We have a yellow one as well which looked like this last year.
Mum has kind of started on her New Year’s Resolution which was that this year she would learn to give us Airedos herself. So she went to Sheffield and came back with some new clippers. We would just like to say Thank You very much to Yopin from Woodseats Superpet who was a great help and went out of her way to advise Mum on how to do it. The clippers are great – quiet (Nelly gets a bit nervous with buzzy things!) and they don’t get hot.
I did say Mum started; well the front of me is pretty good and it’s great to have less hair around my ears and eyes! The back is work in progress! Here’s a picture of the front …
Nelly has pretty much accepted that she has to stay at home while I go for walks now. I think it helped when I told her that she has an important job to do while I’m away … she is the Home guard! She is pretty keen.
I told her exactly what to do while I’m away …
She did her best to take it all in.
There is a lot to learn,
but that girl has balls on her brain!
The Home guard team signing off!
