Lest We Forget

'They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against all odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them'.

Late for Breakfast

Hi Readers, here is a quick gif I made of Hope when she realised that she was going to miss out on a pigs ear for breakfast.

Unfortunately she got here before I had a chance to swipe it from her bowl. Oh well, these is always tomorrow. Anyway Readers, I'm off for a snooze after my walk and breakfast. Bye for now - Murphy.

A New Beginning

Hi Readers, I wanted to share this lovely story with you. 

A few years ago, The Ashby family lost their beloved greyhound Duke to cancer. They were all devastated by his passing especially daughter Juliette. 

Time passed and the family decided it was time to bring another grey into their home. They had seen the post about the puppies that joined the GAP program and decided that one of the boys would be great for the family.

Mrs Ashby spoke to Mum and Aunty Gail and arranged everything without telling Juliette. The family then  went on a drive to collect young Toby while telling Juliette that they were on a day trip for the long weekend. Anyway, they went and met Toby and Juliette was so happy that she was in tears. I think that he is one hound that is going to be very much loved.

The pictures say more than I ever could -

 Surprise, meet your new puppy!
 Juliette gives Toby a cuddle.
Toby settling in at home and having a rest before going exploring.

Anyway Readers, I think I have something in my eye and need to go and blow my snout. Bye for now - Murphy. Oh and happy Easter everybody.
