Opps Better put something in here.

HI All

Sorry about that little mistake.  Been a very busy week here at Souleillou.  Lizzy is gradually getting less frantic and less concerned with trying to take the puppies "somewhere else" all the time.

Here is a picture I took yesterday spot the 6 puppies !!!

Yes they are growing very fast now.  She is a really good Mum and Jane has been doing her Aunty bit and not interfering - well not much.
The study with doubles as my studio for painting has been temporarily converted into a dog room with birthing bed, doggy playpen, 2 ton of newspapers and air freshners etc etc.  So the painting is on hold again.  I can just about use the computer.

Pic to show disruption :-

Anyway, the other news is I have tried to squeeze the grapes and make wine hahahahah..  have only suceeded in making grape juice but have to say it is delicious.


Please can anyone tell me why does making anything need soooooooomany pans.

Bye for now

Well Hamish I will continue for you.

So, where do I start?  After what has been a real annus horriblis in many ways we have managed to end the year on a good note.

Jane and Lizzy are the new guardiennes of Souleillou, although I don't think Lizzy will be doing much guarding for a while - being pregnant and all.

It is really nice to use Hamish's website to further a cause that is and always has been close to my heart.  Animal Welfare.  Horses and Dogs have been central to my life ( I am 65 in November ) and indeed they still are.  I am in the happy position in that I am still able to ride - thanks to a very generous friend - and have still the company of DOGS.  This is what this is all about.  On the Hamish Blog now I am going to keep extra pages to put a directory of Rescue Centres and Pages for anything else that requires a log of some kind.  I am open to any suggestions as long as they include the words "for Dogs".

Thanks to Survive France ( you can just click on the Title and the link will take you there ) I have enjoyed the company of many old and new friends, you can join even if you do not live in France and keep abreast of what is going on here.  I strongly recommend it.

So we shall see how things go.  Here are some pictures of our new dogs .  Keep in touch with your news on Survive France.

Hamish now has a new Mission.


Hi All

Hamish's new mission is to go where no dog has gone before. Soooooooooo we are going to dedicate the little fellow's site to helping other people and dogs get the best out of life by helping anyway we can to find dogs homes, find dogs for people who want to give them homes or point them in the right direction.

Thanks Helen Lucas your last comment on Dogs dogs dogs gave me the idea. We can post links on here and also publish stories, lost and found etc etc. I will take a look at Hamish's old website and see if we can knock that into shape to do directories of the information.

Any ideas welcomed, any help to do this welcome. LOVE photos of our doggie friends to put on this site. You will notice that I have a puppy a day listed in a side panel and some are really magical, some really hilarious.

I am a great fan of anything that puts a smile on people's faces.

Talk to you again soon.
