Sorry things have been busy and we haven't been in touch for a while: Last week we came back refreshed and relaxed from our ski holiday in St Anton. Beautiful sun every day, it was more like March than early February. There was an installation from Anthony Gormley: 100 life-size men spread around the whole area. We only spotted about 20 'Gormleys', but some might have been buried in the snow.
Here's the site with more details:
While we were away Ed and Ossie had a lovely time at a local farm that has an excellent kennel, they always come home tired from their long walks. We didn't think Rosie and Jasper would be too happy in a kennels, so they had a lovely time with our friends. We understand that they were spotted out and about in Consett. We were also happy with them there, since Jasper wasn't very well the week before. We came home one evening, and he was coughing and struggling to breath. The vet found that he had laryngitis and tonsillitis which improved with some antibiotics, but he also has a leaky heart valve. Fortunately this is mild and his heart tablet which helps the heart muscle to pump better and also reduces the strain on the heart, seem to be working well. He is back to his energetic self, playing and chasing his ball round the field. The tablets are also meat flavour, so he thinks he's having a treat. Looking forward to meeting every one at Crufts Best wishes Sarah
Thank you Sarah sounds like you really enjoyed your holiday but I bet you still missed those doggie cuddles!! It sounds like the dogs had a lovely time and probably hoping it won’t be to long before you go away again! Great news that Jasper has recovered and feeling well, you must have been a relieved seeing him playing and chasing a ball. We will look forward to seeing you at Cruts in a couple of weeks time.
