I was honoured and humbled to spend Thursday afternoon with her. She knew the time had come for her to leave her earthly ties. She is now with 'her darling' ........her husband died nine years ago and I know that she missed him each and every day.
My heart aches for dear Riley. He adored Gt Grandma......as a family we meet regularly, and he would always hold her hand, and have a 'little chat.' I know she treasured these times.
And so dear Peggy, sleep peacefully. I have learned much from you, things I can carry forward as I climb to the top of your family's ladder. I thank you for the gift of your son, without you, it would never be .....................

To woods were the unicorns wander and cry?
To caves where the dragons lie sleepily curled?
To waves were the mermaids are happily swirled?
To magical mountains? To looking- glass lands?
To a city of clouds in the blue, summer sky?
If you were a fairy, where would you fly??
Tell me where would you fly?
I would fly with the bumble bees and spend the day visiting flowers :)

My brother was with me and together we managed to get her into the car. I took her home to feed her, clean her up and give her a warm bed. I made an appointment with the local vet and she examined her to make sure she had no serious injury.
I kept her overnight and she slept peacefully with Nella.....happy to be safe, well fed and for a brief moment in time loved.
I did not sleep well that night, I knew I had to hand her over to the right authority, she was not my dog.
Mr P and I talked, if she was not claimed I could maybe keep her.
I live with a practical man, he thinks with his head not his heart. With his arms around me, he asked how could I give her the tlc she needed at his time, when I had so many other issues dominating my life. There was also the fact that if Nella caught a rabbit they may fight over it, and Mr P knew this would upset me. Of course, he was right, he generally is....
With a sad heart I took her to the kennels....I chatted to her en route and told her I would not abandon her. She would be safe but had to trust me. I am sure she understood.
I bent down and gave her a hug, handed the kennel maid her lead, and as I walked away a tear fell, and my heart ached.
I am so happy this story has a happy ending. As you all know, Nella was abandoned.
I have never regretted bringing this little dog home and I know that Julie will love the lurcher.
Abandoned dogs are always so grateful........just to have someone to love them.

I am visiting the school tomorrow to meet Rosemary. We will start to plan the insect border for the children. Money has been allocated, so it is full steam ahead.........
