NINE

Today I received a message from WordPress to let me know I have been blogging for 9 years. I can hardly believe it ! When I started this blog I was hoping I could at least keep it up for 1 year. A big thank you to all my followers and viewers !!!

MY NEW GARDEN HELPER

MAY I INTRODUCE YOU TO PIPA, MALTESE AND MY NEW GARDEN HELPER? when asleep she is a little angel:D
HERE SHE IS PLAYING WITH MY OTHER GARDEN HELPER OZZY (9 YEARS OLD)when awake she is a little terror !!!

Normally I adopt my dogs but I needed a small breed, because of my bad back , Ozzy is way too heavy for me to handle. In March I lost my other Maltese and I was heartbroken. I wanted another Maltese as they are lightweight and gentle, easy dogs who don’t need long walks. Little did I know….what a little monster we brought home !! In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined it. I have had many dogs in my life but this one is nothing like all the others. She weighed 600 grams (= 21 ounces) when we bought her at 9 weeks old, so she was tiny and supercute. She is now almost 4 months old and she brings my whole garden inside, every leaf, flowers, branches , fruit….but if there aren’t any loose on the soil she pulls them off the plants. She can’t leave Ozzy alone, she jumps on him, bites his ears and paws and he is not man enough to handle her so he begs to go to the bathroom to have a bit of time alone in peace and quite. We love her to bits but we hope she’ll calm down in time.

At the moment we are in the middle of a heathwave, the garden looks awefull and so do I.

I hope you are all ok and keeping safe.

THIS IS BRAKING MY HEART

I am heartbroken at the moment as my little dog died yesterday, totally out of the blue, she was only 9 years old, she could always make me smile and I loved her to bits.
