Leap Year


It’s leap year and the day when a Lady can propose to a man.

I guess I shall have to find a Lady, in the hope that she will propose marriage, I still live in hope – although the leap years have been many and no such opportunity has arisen.


Mind you, she will have to be one very special lady, as she will have to compete with my Irish Princess – Kirra – always the love of my life.

Remember the Autumn?


My Kirra was able to camouflage beautifully.

This photo was taken with my o2 xda exec, an oldie cellphone with a 1.3mp camera – but a large screen (such is the eyesight of aged, and the need for larger, rather than compact cellphones.

Here is a image of a o2 xda exec, note the swivel screen, still a great phone with a host of features including playing stereo music from built in music.  It may be antique (like me) but its still going strong.


I love how Kirra is able to blend in with the autumn leaves, I just wish she would not bring them back with her – on her tail.  She seems to sweep them up as she goes along.

Abbey Colour


The joy of colour (even in winter) is evident as Kirra walks the Abbey grounds.

I thought Kirra was doing a bit of diy under the desk.

Alas she was having a wee snooze. 



One just cannot get the staff, these days.

Scottish Trail


Here is Kirra walking alongside the loch, although the loch is out of the photo.




She loved the location and racing off in search of new scents.  Alas the isolation of the isle, meant moving to the mainland.

I Wonder


We all have facial expressions, and my Kirra is no exception.


I just wonder, what she is thinking?

Sad today


I am sad today.



Dad says it’s too dangerous to go for our normal morning walk, as it’s very icy both on the roads and pavements and neither of us wish to fall.

I keep looking out of the window and it looks as if it will be the same throughout the day.  Short walks are not as enjoyable, but they are safe.

Whatever, you are doing today, stay safe and warm.

As you can see my Kirra is eager to enjoy the park.



Alas, her owner (me) is somewhat fatigued, hence the distance between us.

What a Day


I knew my wee princess was feeling off colour, when she beckons me early in the morning to attend the garden.  Her wee tummy was a little off and therefore the need of grass to remedy the situation was evident, and of course plenty of TLC.

The elements of the morning was not a day in which to venture outdoors, gale force winds (which nearly blew down my gardening hut) and torrents of rain.



Kirra in her rain soaked wax coat clearly shows, it was not the best of days to go exploring, but she loves her walks (whatever the weather) and so one must oblige.

Later in the day it calmed somewhat, with sunshine and although quite cold it meant a more enjoyable afternoon walk.

What ever you are doing this weekend, may it be one of sharing with your loving and loyal companion.

When I was Young


Here is a photo of Kirra when she was around 8 months old.

Tobermory - December 2008 030 

How time flies, when you are having fun, and whilst the coat will not fit, she still has abundance of fun and eager to explore.

Sometimes curling up on the day bed




Is far more appealing, than a route march – well at least for an hour or two.

As some of you may know, my Kirra was born in Ireland.


A beautiful country, of wonderful people and even more so, they brought me, my Irish Princess.


Where was your loving Cavalier born?

Cavalier King Charles


Kirra recommends the following website, for anyone who is a Cavalier King Charles owner.

A great website and one in which you can spend an hour or two browsing the informative and delightful posts (including the gallery).

Highlands 003

Kirra sends her love to all.

Buy another coat

I will have to buy Kirra another rain coat.



It might be her waistline or my placing it in the washer.


The cold of the day becomes evident



As frost is reluctant to leave, this place of prayer.

Meet the Boss


Meet the boss.


We all have our place and status.

When you go Visiting


When you go visiting, one should stay on the floor


However, if one is a Cavalier King Charles – one should always have status – of a comfy sofa.

As Kirra clearly states – we miss your blogs.



I am guilty of neglecting my blog, and focused on Facebook instead,  I soon realised the blog allows more creativity of the mind as well as sharing my loyal companion with an audience who are Cavalier owners/lovers.

Our Cavaliers


Our Cavaliers radiate so much happiness each day.




Even the sun cannot compete.
