Wednesday And We Say Hello To Madeline In Wales
A long way to come for a haircut!
Yesterday Vera made a flying visit to Wales, as Parliament is prorogued pending the Queen's Speech later today. The high spot was taking Poppy to Mo's for a haircut. This has got to be some kind of a record for distance travelled for a trim - a testimony to Mo's highly regarded expertise!
Poppy looked lovely afterwards. She's settling in well with Vera, and is getting better with people, although still a bit nervous of other dogs. Of course, Thandi had to have a trim too, so poor Mo was exhausted by the end of the session.
Unfortunately, we had a too eventful trip back to Swansea. My car, which has been standing on the drive for 9 weeks, failed dramatically just outside Swansea. The AA man couldn't fix it, and arranged for a recovery truck. All this in pouring rain, and with Thandi desperately trying to kill the man in a yellow coat from the back seat.Interestingly, the driver of the recovery truck was a woman, and both dogs were her new best friends from the first. We eventually got back to Limeslade at 10.15 pm, having left Mo's at around 5 pm. Thandi and Poppy had excellent bonding opportunities throughout all these hours, which was good.
This is a silly picture of Thandi (taken before the trim!). She's looks like she's practising for the Grand National on the arm of the settee.The weather is wild here this morning. We took the dogs out at 7.30; the tide was high and the waves were sweeping over the road. We all got very wet but it was exhilarating. Madeline
Thank you Madeline, poor you breaking down, luckily no worse for wear, I just love the photo of Thandi, she looks quite the bedlington jockey. I am so pleased Poppy is settling down it will take a little time for her to adjust to her new home.
