Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really. ~Agnes Sligh Turnbull
5th February 1999 – 11th September 2011
Blooming snow! I had to take my mum back to the airport on Thursday, which is a 3 hour return trip and it was snowing all morning so I was stressed about the drive. In the event, it was O.K., but still!
Mr. Tialys has decided not to come back from the U.K. this weekend as the snow is worse there so he is going to work through and fly back Tuesday night – hopefully! That way, once he reaches home, he knows he’ll be able to stay put until after Christmas.
On the plus side, it looked like a winter wonderland here this morning and the dogs love walking in it so I balanced precariously on the side of our mountainous garden and tried not to drop the camera.
I’m off to put another log on the fire and mull some wine – well, I might wait until this evening for the wine bit……
My Saturday Selection this week is the ‘Westerly Trench’ from Rover Dog http://www.etsy.com/shop/RoverDog. If you don’t fancy dressing your chihuahua in a pink tutu or your pug in a diamante tiara and favour a more classic style , have a look at their different slant on dog fashion.

If there were magazines for dog clothes (which, for all I know, there may well be) the glitzy outfits would be in the teen mags and Rover Dog’s clothes would be in the equivalent of Vogue – would that be Dogue?
Stunning photography too!
Apparently, there is a craze in China for painting or dyeing dogs to look like wild animals.
Golden Retriever as a Tiger
A bizarre spectale, but the wealthy middle classes in China have, apparently, taken dogs and cats to their hearts and spending on pets has increased by 500% in the last decade. There is now pressure, from these people, to remove dogs and cats from the menus so maybe a little bit of paint or dye in your eye is preferable to ending up as a meal.
Chow Chow as Pandas
I wonder whether the craze will catch on elsewhere. I suppose it’s only a short step from dressing up chihuahuas in hooded t-shirts and I knew a hairdresser once who used to put red streaks in her dog’s hair so, who knows?
Anyway, I was way ahead of the trend and once did my golden retriever up as an orangutan –

Only joking about the last one – she came back from a lone walk looking like this and I have no idea what she had rolled in to achieve the fetching red tint.
