the dog + the dish

Monte, September 2011





























So like I was saying to you a couple of days ago, last week was filled with a lot of high highs and low lows, with one of the lows being the sudden illness of my very old pooch named Monte. 

If you have followed this blog for a little while now you will have met this certain dog of mine a couple of times. He is a major part of my life, especially when he keeps me company when I'm having a hard time with my health. These days he sleeps for much of the day as he is getting on in years (16 in human years!) and our walks have become shorter and less frequent. Oh the poor little dear...

Anyway I thought it was time to immortalise him as I realised the other day that I had never committed his little mug to paper. So this was my attempt at trying to capture his big personality, in a tiny body!
Oh and by the way...he is feeling much better this week after a visit to the vet. 
Yay to him... he truly is an EverReady bunny as he just keeps going and going...
