The visit is over.

It has been a month since I last blogged, our Granddaughter was visiting so I have been busy.

We managed to entertain Natalia for the whole month but actually we could have left her with the dogs and she would have had a great time. 🙂

Hamish was nervous for the first day but after that Natalia was his best chum.

Hamish didn’t spend much time in his bed, why bother when you have a human cushion?

It looks like Natalia may be an expert “swan whisperer” after a very nervous start due to us being met at the car by several giant swans who walked us to the river. 😀

Natalia did the usual tourist things in London, she loved London?! That is a very special place over her shoulder, St Thomas’s hospital is where I was born. 😀

She had a great day in Cambridge with her Uncle Michael and Aunty Clare where she was lucky enough to meet professor Stephen Hawking.

It is nice having people come to stay but it is only when it is a teenager that you realize how old you are getting. Where do they get their energy from?

Ahead of the next batch of pooches arriving from Romania at he beginning of March I am giving a shout for some of the overlooked beauties still waiting for a home.

Basil is a big older chap who has been waiting too long for a home.

Trinity is a gorgeously striking young lady, just a little shy at the moment.

Banjo is 8 years old and enjoys nothing more than nice plodding walks.

And finally for now is Ralphy, an energetic and playful little bloke.

About Mick C Gorman

Slightly damaged old bloke who is plodding on with more than a little help from a great wife. I have been married for 35 years and have 2 grown up children. I did the usual thing and replaced children with dogs when the nest became empty, best thing I ever did (apart from getting married of course). Life has taken a few interesting turns so far but this Epilepsy thing beats the lot! I love lots of things but in the past have never really stuck with them long enough to be good at them, I am trying harder to be better at a few things rather than okay at loads of things. There is still plenty of time. :-D

    This was a lovely post Mick. The dogs are all looking very well and happy. But that Natalia girl! I’ve been a teacher for 40+ years and I can see character in a teenagers eyes. You didn’t tell us much about her and what was her connection with Stephen Hawking?

    • Natalia is a delightful girl, she is very shy but a really great family member. She will do anything for anyone especially her little brother, Ivan. She volunteers at dog rescues in Spain where she lives.
      My son, daughter in law and Natalia just happened upon Stephen Hawking as he arrived at his college at the same time as they arrived. My son is the scientist in the family so it made his day to meet him. 🙂

    Your granddaughter with you for a while month. What an amazing time you all—dogs included—must have had.
