My first post for this new blog comes with a bit of a heavy heart. By way of an introduction, we had to put our Lab of fourteen years down about a year ago. I don't think I faced up to it for about five months and then I just cracked.
I get physically ill when I hear of friends' pets suffering. There's nothing for it. So when I heard that my friend of some fifty years Mike's dog Lucky had internal bleeding, my guts clenched and all I could do in reaction to the photo he posted was to pick up my brushes.
I don't have the courage to ask about the outcome . . . I'll hear in time.
This is a new site. Last May my comprehensive web site was infected with Viagra malware. The ISP (iPage) would not do a thing to help, so - contrary to the action of Viagra, I deflated it. Building a site from scratch is just an enormous undertaking given the sheer volume of images - and so I happily and with great relief present both my new site and my new blog. I hope you'll find it interesting, informative and - oh yeah - beautiful!
