Terrier's day off
Happy Birthday Ronnie
patterdale laws of property

He has eaten half of his chewy birthday card and is playing the part of an efficient kindling shredder and being a lovely hot water bottle to this sicky who is a more than a little miffed that we are still without a fully working boiler.

still without a fully working boiler.

Oh that's way beyond a joke. You're poorly? Still or again? {{hugs}}

And happy birthday Ronnie.

To be fair to our tame plumber, the fault is at the hot water tank and manifests only when the hot water has exceeded the safe temperature. It needed someone watching when the lock-out happened to trace the noise back to the hot tank thermostat. That happened hours after every visit where the plumber seemed to have cured the problem at the boiler end.

Still have the very heavy cold that started last weekend. Have a safe trip.

My kids are clearly Patterdale Terriers.

Happy Birthday Ron. *sends chewy toys*

Sorry to hear about the poorly and can sympathise with the boiler situation (ours has a mind of its own and we cannot control it at all - hopefully the engineer will sort it out next week).

Have traced the boiler fault to the hot water tank thermostat. It wasn't causing the lock-out during any engineer's visit because the water wasn't hot.

Best of luck with yours.

Thank you.

I love the job description!
It fits many dogs (and children) I have known and loved.

Hope you feel better soon! No heat? Ouch and brrrrr. Give the pup a pat on the head for me and wish him happy birthday. :)

This is the never-ending cold from Hell. I dread to think what I'd be like if I hadn't had the flu jab.

Oh, Yay, Ronnie!!!

BTW - we found Roxy a new home and it's PERFECT. Two senior citizens who lost their 15 year old dog last year, and wanted a new companion. She has a fenced yard, and dog door, and the Mrs. takes her to the dog park every morning. She's fitting RIGHT in there.

I feel good - it was a tough mix with our other 3, but we did good by fostering her.

You did very good. I couldn't bear the thought of parting from a foster-pup after so long.

Oh, I cried like a baby - really, I did. But the couple was SO happy to get her, and it really almost would have been selfish to keep her. I hope that if I'm ever in that situation, there's a dog ready for me, too.

The wife came first to meet her, and was a tiny bit worried about her size - she had thought she was smaller, based on her weight. So she brought the husband over, and he said "Why, she's a perfect size for a dog!" and he sat down beside her, and cuddled her, and it felt just right.

They had her microchipped that day, and she went off with them happily. I think it's a good fit.

Hello dear little Ronnie .. happy birthday .. and keep up the good work with your hot bod!! .. cheaper than gas and much kinder to the environment.

But not much good for cold air in the lungs. MWNN has bought some fuel and we now have a roaring fire.

Hi Ronnie!

Sorry to be so late with the birthday wishes but my stupid mum wouldn't let me get online til now. Sneaked on while she's not looking!

Woofs and licks from

The Norm!

The Norm is gorgeous! It's a pity they can't meet.

Maybe in the summer we could have a poochie picnic somewhere?

I swear that Norm is autistic though - he has trouble relating to other dogs. He's not unfriendly. Just seems unable to suss out how to play with them! LOL

ELy! Beside the river. Ron will bring his ball then he won't be offended by Norm's lack of doggie interaction.

It's a date! Nice meal at the Maltings after good walk on the river bank :)
