If only…

Had Roxy come along at a slightly different time in our lives she wouldn’t be going anywhere. She is such a wonderful dog, perfect in fact. Roxy gets on with every dog she meets, all people, and cats! She is … Continue reading

A disappointing day. :-(

In the early days of having MS I found people to be kind, caring, and on the whole understanding. If I had any complaint it would be that some people appeared to pity me? I could live with that. The … Continue reading
