Full Circle

I picked Mary up from the groomers at 4 pm
I didn't recognise her when I walked in.
for she had lost her puppy look and had been transformed  into a true Welsh Terrier.
I put her in the passenger seat for the journey home
and she sat quietly by my side
with bright brown eyes


Suddenly I felt just a tad emotional,
as I realised that
I now had  my co pilot back

  4. She is beautiful and the puppy is still in there ... a new haircut won't banish her puppy-ness :)

  10. When I first read this, my brain substituted Meg for Mary. I thought you had slipped up and written the old girl's name. Then I reread it and realized I had slipped up. Seeing her with her new grown up look made me think 'Meg'...
    Xoxo

  11. Ahh, little Mary is growing up. She won't replace Meg in your heart but isn't it wonderful to have a new co-pilot?

  16. Oh John, she looks so grown up, and I think very aware of her responsibilities as your new co-pilot. May you have many happy years driving together.

  22. You have made me consider a Welsh terrier for me ... after I move. If I get a puppy with 2 cats already in the house, things should be ok .. here is the breeders photo

    1. Sweet! I would suggest a dog rather than a bitch for a first welsh, they tend to be slightly more loyal

  31. "Eyo
    Co-pilot, co-pilot, co-pilot

    We can go where you wanna go
    We just gotta fuel it up
    Try catching us if you can
    This flight ain’t about to stop, no"

  32. Oh John ..... I have the proverbial lump in the throat !!!! XXXX

    ReplyDelete
  33. Awww ..... she's a worthy co-pilot. It must have given you goose bumps to glance to your left and see a mini Meg ..... those are hard paw prints to fill :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Omg. When I started to read this and as I write this I am teary remembering dear Meg's final drive as your co pilot. Makes me happy knowing there is another co pilot in your life . Much love to you and remembering your first little co pilot Meg xxx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your post made me all teary eyed.....Such a sweet co-pilot!

  36. I remember picking our Airedale up after her first grooming session when all her puppy coat was gone. I didn't recognise her either. Rather a disconcerting feeling isn't it? She looked rather like Mary, love the looong terrier face.

  37. The prof knew what he was doing all along!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Just what I had been thinking! I bet along with tears, it sent shivers down your spine... Having a new co-pilot should help you once again navigate through life.

    ReplyDelete
  39. And that is just what I need too ... I might have to name mine John .. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. She's lovely John, and she's grown up way too fast!

  43. I've just been listening to Cristo on LBC Radio saying that his two small dogs were completely shaved by his 'groomer'. He wasn't pleased.

  44. That brought a tear to my eye...

  45. This is sad and happy at the same time.

  46. Now it's 'Her Ladyship'.
