Finally................a post!!!  So sorry to all my faithful followers that I have not written in quite a while!
2013 was quite a year for me..................a great holiday followed by a garden overgrown that needed tending, then several visitors to share in 3 months of dry weather and watering everyday!!  Then, I also had several health issues to work out.

Then, as if I didn't have enough to look after already.................I bought my first dog!!!  His name is 'Oliver' and he is 6 years old and is a purebred Papillon.  He is also a rescue dog, having lived the last two years in a car with his homeless owner..  He is absolutely the best dog and even my 'Sophie' seems to get along with him.  My other cat, 'Mimi', stays in the laundry room when he is around.  We have already had him for 5 months so maybe in a few more months, she might get to accept him as well......  Having had cats all my life, I have been spoiled!!  Cats will let you sleep in and decide when they need your attention!! Dogs are like children (which I have never had) and seem to demand constant love and attention.................just trying to do emails gets him very upset with me, so, I am trying to train him re this and also excess barking. Big problem now is trying to find someone who can stay with him at our house while we take trips in the future!!  I know that saner minds would question my sanity on getting Oliver but sometimes the heart takes over and I couldn't leave him.

I will post some miniature finds in the next post but will sign off for now

Many hugs,
