A yearly review always seems to be on the cards so I will dispense with the long winded wordiness about what we did and didn’t do this year. Essentially we had fun, went on adventures, lost some dear buddies and remained loved throughout.
We lost my sweet cousin Minnie to the horrid C. Rest easy fur cousin.
For the rest of the month we rested and I felt melancholy.
Lenny and I were accused of being “thick as thieves” as we seemed to be plotting shenanigans after chicanery. Not sure what they meant.
Storm Eunice introduced herself to the UK and Lenny was out the day after to check the destruction she had wrought.
Spring sprung and the blossom bloomed.
We enjoyed the days becoming warmer and the sun on our fur.
We went on separate walks so we could explore at our our own pace.
I enjoyed pulling parents along the lanes.
Vampires slept whilst all around them got on with their lives.
I took the chance to catch up on my sleep as well.
Taking time to survey my patch is always important.
But then we found the Paw Paddock at Horsham (actually its nearer to Warnham). I was a puppy again.
Then we found Paw Paddock Horsham again.
Ok, one more at Paw Paddock Horsham.
We lost Tyrrell, one of the best beagle pals you could ever wish for. Rest easy sweetie.
We also got to explore a place called Whiteways near Amberley. Phew, what a scorcher.
We also lost Eddy. He was one of my oldest friends. We had met a few years ago and strolled about. He was another rufty tufty beagle lad. Rest easy Eddy dude.
We explored the beach at Goring By Sea. We were supposed to be at Ferring but thanks to dad we didn’t get there.
My favourite place anywhere. Just beautiful.
The nights started to draw in and our beds seemed more comfy each day.
We ensured that at least one parent had to sit on the edge of the sofa.
We lost the most beautiful and wonderful Nut beagle. Rest easy sweetie.
We soaked up the last warmth of the sunshine.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.
Time for more thoughts about what lies ahead.
And with that the year ends. I am fortunate to be loved and safe, to have a multitude of friends and to have a happy life. Sometime in early January 2023 I am off to the vet to have my leg fixed so I can try to run around again chasing Lenny like a “fur possessed”. Shenanigans will have to wait sadly.
Best wishes to all for the coming year, may you all stay safe and remain loved.
