Thank you

Yes, thank you - thank you all so much for your heartwarming comments to my previous post. We all read every comment and they were so much appreciated.



It's been a very strange few weeks, getting used to the house without Moog.

So many little parts of my day used to involve her and it seems to be the little things that we miss the most. Hearing the tip-tap of her claws as she trots up the hallway; coming in from the school run and going straight to the back door to let her out; having a reason to go for a walk; hearing her very special 'pigdog' snore as she sleeps off a busy day; seeing her curled up on her cushion under the stairs.

We decided almost straight away that we can't be without a dog. Meg was such an important part of the family and so much of our family time over the years has been spent taking her on lovely long walks to all our favourite places.


My knitting has been a welcome distraction - no surprises there then!

We are making some very exciting plans and I'm hoping that before too long I can let you in on them. Not just yet though, I don't want to jinx things!

Let's just say....once a Moog's Mum, always a Moog's Mum :o)

Your knitting is very impressive and I will look forward to your new family member. Moog would be happy that all her training won't go to waste ;-)

We used to hear our dog opening the living room door for years after she'd gone. I don't think they ever really leave us!

Very excited to hear your four legged news when you're ready ...

There's a wheaten terrier in Manhattan (quite rare to see) and every time I come across him I think it might be my dog that I haven't had for over twenty years. Quite nice to think he might have been here all this time... C.x

She will be so glad that you are getting a new friend to care for the family.

When my lovely cat Ophelia died last year, I felt like a limb had been cut off so we had to get another puss (who is really gorgeous too). They really get into your heart.

I think there's no greater tribute that you can give to your Meg than giving another dog a place in your family. It's funny how much of a void they leave isn't it, down to the paws tippy-tapping. I'm a teensy bit excited to see new poop-ie but you are right not to want to jinx it. Beautiful knitting too xx

Wow -- all that knitting -- it's all so beautiful! This must be the year for puppies -- I know several people who have new dogs. Can't wait to see your new baby!
