20 Feb, 2010

20 Feb, 2010

20 Feb, 2010

 

Ah....isn't he cute....Bet you keep him Irish...!!!

20 Feb, 2010

 

Hmmm ! Take that as a yes then ! To the fostering..you understand Eileen !!

20 Feb, 2010

 

yessssssssss Jane, just till he gets a good home lol.
mind you dunno if they would let me take him if they seen the state of the garden lol

20 Feb, 2010

 

I think fostering could lead to adoption, lol.

20 Feb, 2010

 

Ditto Dawn !!! Lol .Suspect the state of the garden would be the least of their concerns Eileen...or his..bless !

20 Feb, 2010

 

No excuse there Eileen, lol.

20 Feb, 2010

 

lol i shall let you know, maybe someone took him home today with them :-)

20 Feb, 2010

20 Feb, 2010

 

exactly Dawn, if no one takes the dogs they find foster homes for them so thats good

20 Feb, 2010

 

Thats true Dawn...we will watch this space Eileen x

20 Feb, 2010

 

Methinks he's already stolen someones heart ! :o)

20 Feb, 2010

 

Aw Eileen he's so cute no wonder you're fond of the little chap look at how he's watching you ...... aw bless

20 Feb, 2010

 

Good job he has you Eileen..........he reminds me of Finn...poor little fellow...with a lot of your love and feeding, he'll make you a lovely little dog. Finn was so emaciated when we saw him in the vets that he was there to be put to sleep. You couldn't get a more loving and gentle boy...in his 13th year now.....:o)

21 Feb, 2010

 

eileen he is so sweet even with mange, wish i could give him a home :o))

21 Feb, 2010

 

Oh yes, he would be perfect for you Sandra.

21 Feb, 2010

 

Eileen he as already stolen my heart, he is so lovely mange or no mange, hope he gets a home soon Eileen :o))

21 Feb, 2010

 

That's a nice thing to do Eileen, Sure the dogs appreciate it.

I can see a fostering coming up with this one...hehehe... :-)

21 Feb, 2010

 

wouldnt get baz to agree there dawn :o(( im the animal lover in this house, baz does enjoy casper but wouldnt miss not having a pet, so do i get rid of baz lol

21 Feb, 2010

 

That might be a bit of a drastic step Sandra, lol. Luckily John likes the animals but I do all the looking after.

21 Feb, 2010

 

lol wouldnt get rid of baz dawn but i do love animals and wish i could have more, never mind cant have it all can we, im like you though do it all when it comes to pets, hows the kitties, up to mischief i bet :o))

21 Feb, 2010

 

I know the animals make work for us but I love them.
KIttens a bit naughty today - they've been running along the hall and jumping up the curtains, either side of the front door, I had to ban them.

21 Feb, 2010

 

Ooh Dawn I can just picture them...Lol! Ted and Pops usually spend their evenings galloping up the stairs, round the bedrooms and down again....:o(

21 Feb, 2010

 

lol oh dear dawn, they are full of it arent they, at least casper hasnt run up the curtains, thankfully lol

21 Feb, 2010

22 Feb, 2010

24 Feb, 2010

24 Feb, 2010

24 Feb, 2010

 

hi guys, just back from the pound. fox terrier is doing great , his wee tail was wagging when i took him out for his walk.ill post a new pic of him

25 Feb, 2010

 

Aww Eileen I have had tears in my eyes reading about Cori, I would love another little dog but afraid Harry doesnt feel keen on the idea, but Im working on it! hope this little chap soon finds a loving home he certainly deserves one.

25 Feb, 2010

 

aw no dont be sad , honestly this wee guy and all th eother dogs down there are very well looked after .
Harry might change his mind, you never know :-)

25 Feb, 2010

 

Only just found this, thank goodness for people like you, he looks a lovely little fellow.........

25 Feb, 2010

 

Lovely little fellow. I think he's already found a good home.

26 Feb, 2010

 

Added pic to favourites... can't resist...:o) xxx

26 Feb, 2010

 

lol Toto , i havent taken him home with me just yet

26 Feb, 2010

 

aww TT thats so nice

26 Feb, 2010

 

That is the cutest dog! I've learned that all dogs are born with the mange mite that is passed on to them by their mothers. Most dogs immune systems keep the mite at bay. There's two kinds -- sarcoptic and demodex with demodex being the worst to have. Puppy had demodex when I got him at age two months and was cured with a medicine called ProPlan and a healthy diet (baked boneless chicken and turkey hamburger) to build his immune system. Just thought you'd like to know.

27 Feb, 2010

 

thank you for that. god knows what kind of conditions this dog was living on before been brought to the pound

27 Feb, 2010

 

He looks a lot better now Eileen...judging by your last photo...bet he is missing you this weekend !

27 Feb, 2010

 

hi Jane,
the pound only opens in the morning time on Sat, an i had to work this morn :-(

27 Feb, 2010

 

Well he will be counting the hours ! This fostering idea is good.....suppose it makes more room for new intakes...shouldnt be necessary at all but sadly there will always be unwanted animals...: o (

27 Feb, 2010

 

its like a conveyer belt Jane down there

27 Feb, 2010

 

How very very sad Eileen...and those are probably just the tip of the iceberg. Why do people get animals and then sling them out ? I know times are hard...but if we can afford to eat then our animals eat too...in it together...in bad times and good. It makes me so mad...

27 Feb, 2010

 

i wish i knew the answer to that Jane..
you would not believe the amount of horses over here that have been abandoned with this recession

27 Feb, 2010

 

Horses ? Oh please ! What happens to them Eileen ? Or dare I ask....................

27 Feb, 2010

 

again the pounds take them in and try find homes for them

27 Feb, 2010

 

Oh ...How are the pounds funded Eileen..bet its not by the b....y government !

27 Feb, 2010

 

the one i go to gets a pittance Jane, they rely heavily on donations .

hope the heavy rain has stopped your way now

27 Feb, 2010

 

Hi you guys, hope the rain isnt too bad Jane, how's Dublin Eileen?
How's this little chap Eileen? Are you still walking him? x

27 Feb, 2010

 

hiya Dawn, how are you.
would you believe we had a lovely sunny day here today in Dublin .
ill be back on monday to the pound Dawn to walk him

27 Feb, 2010

 

You're an angel Eileen. can you call for Bonnie on the way, she's always ready for a walk :-)))
I'm fine thanks and pleased to hear you've had sunshine - unlike us :-( Not too bad but drizzling most of they day. I did get some more 'in the green' bulbs set though :-) Put my hood up and away I went.

27 Feb, 2010

 

Hi Dawn..good for you getting those bulbs in Dont even ask about ours.They are trying..bless..just keep getting battered ! Lol
Eileen..just as I thought..donations...... Sun ? Whats that ! Lol

27 Feb, 2010

 

lol no prob Dawn, tell Bonnie to be ready with her lead.

aye dawn, no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing lol good that you got out into the garden for a while

27 Feb, 2010

 

well i have to say it was a wee bit scary alright Jane when i seen a big fire ball in the sky lol

27 Feb, 2010

 

Remind me Eileen..what does it look like ! Lol...Getting ready for another battering tomorrow !We will be looking back at all this in a few months and thinking..winter...what winter ? Lol ( Thats me being optimistic ! )

27 Feb, 2010

 

we deserve a scorcher of a summer after all this

27 Feb, 2010

 

Too true.....then we will be complaining about the heat Lol ! Erm...no !

27 Feb, 2010

 

ohhhhhh the first person to complain about the heat Jane will get a slap lol

27 Feb, 2010

 

Will probably be Ray when he comes in complaining about some difficult customer wanting him to dig in the heat ! Lol.....Tough !

27 Feb, 2010

 

He's a sweetie who deserves a good home. Well done Irish for giving him a little bit of love. We had sunshine today althought the temperature early this morning was minus 2 and so Gerry and I placed the seat and table back outside because the weathermen said that we are going to have some more sunshine and I thought that it would be nice to wrap up and have our morning coffee outside.

1 Mar, 2010

 

wasnt it just beautiful today Linda ;-), a great start to the month

1 Mar, 2010

 

Looks like a repeat of yesterday Irish. White frost with a brilliant blue sky and plenty of sunshine. The snowdrop flowers came open yesterday. I garden the flowerbed that runs alongside between us and the bungalow next door. It belongs to a young man who lives there but goes to work, but he doesn't mind me doing it and putting plants in. I've tidied it all up and put big stones along the edge and any bulbs I dug up I split into small clumps and they are all growing well now. Spring is a lovely time of year. The birds are certainly singing well.

2 Mar, 2010

 

aye Linda another lovely morning. great to see some sunshine at last.
nice for that guy to have his own gardener lol nice for you aswell in that you dont have to look at an bare plot of ground.

2 Mar, 2010

 

How is Cory this week, Eileen ?
Is his skin condition improving ?

2 Mar, 2010

 

hi TT,
i wasnt able to go down yesterday , but i should be ok to go this afternoonand ill let you know then how he is .

2 Mar, 2010

 

Thanks... xxx for Cory. xxxx

2 Mar, 2010

 

At least everything is neat and tidy Irish and the bushes are cut at the right time. We actually have flowers on the springtime shrubs. Just been outside and raised the stones by placing more soil underneath them and pruned the roses. Swept up and feel better now!!!!!
