…..'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'…..

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Monday is menosukhi day - the one in which I go all sentimental.

Okay.  In case you missed the fact, I am an animal mama.  Love them in all their variety.  It would not be beyond the bounds of reason to say, though, that I have a particular fondness for the pet dog.

Cannot have one myself again for some time - if ever again.  So I shall live through others in the meantime.


Male, born 8th July 2013.  Miniature Fox Terrier with good breeding. 

Flychaser extraordinaire.  Early signs of gardening skills.  

Sandal vandal and thong 'terrierist'.

Sitting and leaving on command.  Mostly.  

Not sure about the walking bit yet but it brings a smile when home again.  Loves to play hold, pull, toss.  Gets a bit over-excited around food so the wees and poos training still very much needed.

Enjoys other dogs blogs but will not be likely to have one himself as has not yet lived enough life, as well as being a bit short for reaching keyboards.

Give him time.  He's thinking about it  (Note that Lady Victoria!!!)

  1. Oh he is such a darling. Aunty Yam, mum took me for a walk this morning to the church and back. I am a bit terrified of the cars, even though I am on the pavement. Love when I get to our drive way, as I know the way home then. My tug toy, I have ripped apart, and now trying to eat the filling. Mum was found to be muttering, and said and will get a new one. Mum just took a photo of me with my original teddy bear toy. No doubt she will email it to you. See you soon, for plays.

  2. Oh he is soooo cute and I see an expert at thinking already, hehehe

  3. That is one cute dog will he get much bigger.

  4. My momma always says there's nothing on this planet like a puppy! What a cutie pie! I'm sorry you can't have one yourself but hopefully that will change in the future.

  5. Oh, what a cute little fellow. Only 3 months old so can't be expected to be fully trained.
    Lindy says she'll send you pictures of herself every day because you like dogs so much. I told her that is a very difficult promise for her to keep. She says "maybe so" and sends you a nice big dog-kiss instead. (She likes kissing arms and feet in particular.)
    Luv, K
