Hello Sue ..

Hi Delonix ...
Thanks. Today Conker has been helping me with shopping at the garden centre. He is very knowledgeable on buying plants. Lol. Yes, I'm lucky that he continues to look well.

I very much hope Puccini can get the right medication to give him better health. The older our pets become, the more fond we are of them ...
Fingers crossed for Puccini ... a very special little dog. :o)

Hi TT, I didn't realise it was Conker's 8th birthday this week! Tell him I'm sorry for not having wished him Happy Birthday earlier. He looks sooo handsome sitting there amongst the plants in your lovely border - is he a "Border Collie" now??? (Sorry, couldn't resist it!) Anyway wish him many happy returns of the day - for many a year to come! :-)) Tell him that as he is so gorgeous I couldn't help but add his photo to my Favs!
