Not Happy


Kirra is not at all happy.


Reason being, we have a work force in our home, changing our central heating from solid fuel to that of Electric Storage Heating.  The upheaval should last until the end of the week (if all goes well) which is just as well, as the weather is due to become much colder over the weekend.

Spring – Fickle


Spring over here and you will see it can be rather fickle.

Glorious sunshine


About turn – sharp frost


Just as well my Kirra has her winter coat.

Who You Meet


When out walking, it is interesting who you meet along the way.


This morning, Kirra and I met up with a couple who had (2) ruby Cavaliers (mother and daughter Cavaliers) and immediately they all took an interest in each other as well as we their respective owners in getting to know one another.

Meeting folk and their dogs is always wonderful and only adds to the joy of dog walking.

Awaken to a Sunday


As the dawn of a beautiful new day


As we embark on a walk of sunshine and scenic beauty


This day is blessed by those around us and the mutual love we share.

St Patricks Day


As many of you will know, my beautiful Kirra was born in Ireland.



A country of mystique, genuine folk and abundance for life.



They also brought my Loving companion into my Life – and she retains the status of an affectionate Irish Princess.

Dad’s Got a New Gadget


Dad and his gadgets.  His mobile phone got water damage, after we got caught in a deluge of rain.  So he looks for something more suitable on the internet.

Kirra - January 09 


And this is what he found.



Yes a Camera, Mobile Watch – all combined with a keypad and dual sim,– so all he need do is fit it to his wrist (like an ordinary watch) and that means he has more spaces in his pockets for my many treats and of course the essential poo bags.

Military Training Zone


Living so close to a Military Training Area, does mean the misfortune of hearing guns and the sound echoing throughout the moors can be distressing for my Kirra.



Hence, sometimes she remains on a leash, as soon as she hears the guns, her intention is to get back home quickly.  Hopefully she will get used to the sounds and that she will not come to any harm.

Has anyone had similar response from their pets, and how did they deal with it.

Birthday Girl


My Irish Princess is 4 today.  This is the 1st photo I received of my then puppy when she lived in Ireland.  As you can see I fell in love with her immediately.



She had to travel on (2) ferries to get to me and the weather was stormy conditions – but she made it safely and was a joy to finally see her.  She was in a travel cage for the journey and now she has a fabric travel carrier,which is huge, although collapses for easy transport.  She still loves her fabric travel carrier and often looks on it as her quiet comfort zone.


How the years have flown over and throughout, Kirra has brought so much happiness into my life, and indeed all that she meets.

When I Say


When I say, it’s time for a walk.

The look – says it all.

Dad’s Idea


Dad’s idea of photo taking.

Has Anyone


Has anyone seen or even got one of these.


furniture dog cage


A great idea and one in which I could see my Kirra absolutely love such a comfort setting.


One Knows


One instinctively knows, when one is been watched.

I’m Bored


I’m bored Dad, look into my eyes.


Now take me to the park and afterwards the pet shop for some treats.

Friday, 2 March 2012



After walking up the hill, both Kirra and I need a short breather.


The park is always inviting, it is just where it was situated (up the hill).

Time Out


We all need to take time out, from our hectic life.

And my Kirra clearly shows, what better way, than to take in the cool breeze whilst relaxing on the lawn.
