A frosty start

We awoke to the first frost this morning. As I walked past some of the neighbours scraping their car windscreens before their journeys into work. I was so glad to have a few days off and could admire the scenery in all its glory instead!

Living by the sea the frost was not too heavy but it still gave the mobile homes - now mainly empty a white coating.

Sunrise is always one of my favourite times of the day ......

 and watching the sun rise over our old home town of Weymouth in the distance, was a moment to savour.

There was a thin line of mist as the warmer water flowing out from the harbour met the colder sea water.

 and the hummocks of grass captured the colour of the sun.

Thank you for all the lovely comments welcoming Tavi.  He had his second injections today, so we have another week before he can joining us for short walks and meeting other dogs. Tavi is keeping us amused in the house and garden with his cheeky antics. Some of this favourite toys are those he has captured from elsewhere in the house ......

He has looking with interest at the bottom shelf of this bookcase this morning, I'm not sure how much longer the items will remain here!

  Until next time.

A new member of the family!

Apologies for being absent from the blogging world for a few weeks, we have been busy with a new bundle of trouble!

Meet Tavi our 9 week old West Highland terrier puppy.  Tavi's  name is taken from Tavistock, a town on the edge of Dartmoor, which is a location that means so much to our family. We have had over 14 family holidays in this area over the years, with many happy memories. A few years ago I also discovered that my husbands ancestors had originated from here back in the late 1700's.

We weren't planning to have another dog quite so soon after our dear Daisy died back in August. We have always had second-hand animals before, but one of us happened to notice that there was a breeder in Dorset that had puppies for sale (quite a rare occurance), Once we had seen Tavi there was no going back! So many people had recommended getting a dog from Many Tears Rescue, Most of their dogs wanting homes needed to have another dog present in the house, so sadly it was not to be, but something we may consider again in the future. We met a beautiful adopted female Westie from there a few weeks ago in the fields beyond our home. She was having a wonderful time running with other dogs from her family. They told us how she was still getting used to family life but was still to scared to be attached to a lead. 

Tavi's quite difficult to capture at the moment. He is always on the move, unless he is sound asleep or held! So these are just a few of the best ones so far!

I will attempt to read some posts this week, puppy obliging!
