Winnie



Trendy Carol ( wearing some urban Chic today) called round and at a 2 metre distance took the girls to her house while I was painting
She sent a photo of Winnie after the old lass had run amok with an old tennis ball
She may be fading but my best girl can still surprise with bursts of excitement and fun.
And Tonight she is curled up with her gin trap mouth lying heavily on my feet.tired and happy
She's such an valiant old broad
With a smile like a large split watermelon

      Pay no heed to Moaning Mavis, John. You ARE a terrific Dad and anyone can see the love and devotion your pets have for you which is testimony in itself.

  11. The title put my heart in my throat until I scrolled down to hear of Winnie's day. She is a lovely dog. Your dogs reflect your loving nature. Hugs.

  12. Winnie really is a special old girl. She has many fans, myself included.

  13. "She's such a valiant old broad". Were you referring to Winnie or to Trendy Carol?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh John, she looks such a tired old darling in that photograph - I know how it feels (as you do of course) to see your friend fading before your eyes. It;s the down side of having dogs and getting to love them so much. Like Marjorie I feared the worst when I saw the title of your post - but for now all is well. Give her a hug (or a sausage roll) from me.

  15. Girls just wanna have fun

  16. May she be around for a good while yet.

  17. Another one here who feared the worst to see a post about darling Winnie. Such a relief to see she is still with us!
    And yes, she is such a sweet old girl. I hope she is able to stick around and enjoy life for a lot longer.

  18. Winnie is darling is darling, she deserved a special day to play out in the sunshine.

    I had to look up gin trap. I was imagining it referred to a toothless old man's mouth , slurping gin...and was shocked that it means a vicious leg hold trap for animals.

  19. What a glorious relief - I thought something happened to dear Winnie. Whew!!!! Yes, you would make a good father.

  20. Winnie's Day Out was a smashing success, worthy of an Oscar.

  21. What a big smile she has! Lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  22. She is lovely! What a special beauty she is...

  23. A happy dog with a good life!

  24. Trendy Carol took a great photo of Winnie! How lovely to see her again up close and smiling. She may surprise you with a longer lifespan than you expect. I remember our vet telling us not to give up on one of our cats who had a chronic condition. He said they can surprise you. The good thing is that animals don't mope around, they make the most of every day. People can take a lesson in that!

  25. She isn't going any where for some time, these battle axes don't give up easily...ever.

  26. Winnie has such a wonderful face. I remember when you got her and how we all feared for another sorrow for you. We were wrong as she has given you so much joy and love.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Awww, she IS a happy dog.

    How marvelous that Winnie can still enjoy life's happy moments and can make her own fun!

    Kudos to Trendy Carol for providing a haven for the girls while you painted.

    Hope 2 coats of paint are all that's needed.

    Sweet dreams!

  32. two or three days ago you asked me to send you a photo of a quilt project I am working on. I would be delighted, but could not send it in the replies. Or find your email address. How may I send you a photo?

  33. There's nothing our Billy likes more than an old Tennis ball. As for your final sentence, it got Boris in a lot of hot water; I have yet to understand why!

  34. Winnie is obviously what Mr Keats had in mind when he wrote:-

    'A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
    Its loveliness increases.
    It will never pass into nothingness.'

    Go to it, our very own SWEET girl!

    ReplyDelete
  35. She has a certain elegance about her. Long may she reign!

  36. Our place is littered with tennis balls, indoors and outside. Rick is obsessed with them.

  37. As I look at Happy Winnie I'm reminded of how dogs relish life and live in the moment-And isn't Trendy Carol a treasure x

    ReplyDelete
  38. Know you and yours are loved as shown by that "Oh no!" that so many of us felt when we saw your heading, "Winnie". Treasure all these moments - and that gorgeous photo.

    ReplyDelete

  46. Big kisses to Winnie x

  47. I LOVE it when older dogs suddenly get a burst of energy or excitement and just go with it. It makes my heart burst with happiness whenever Suky gets the Zoomies after plodding through a walk and then suddenly getting a burst of energy at the end.

    Winnie is just GORGEOUS. xx

    'An old broad', what a compliment (as I should know).

    ReplyDelete
  50. Winnie is the dearest thing.
    You house is going to look lovely with the soft yellow and your pictures flowers cushions and knick knacks A creative person can use this time for endless projects and inspiration. However I would like to see the other dogs pitch in with some domestic help.Having four legs is not an excuse for lolling about.Line them up and give them a serious talking to about how they must all contribute in these difficult times.
