Season’s Greetings and Thank You

 

Yes, it’s that time of year again, and we headed along to Pet Lover’s Cafe for a photo with a very long-suffering Santa. Reggie (on the left) is reacting to the photographer, Zen looks stately but disapproving, and Fergal is posing sweetly.  I left Pip and Bodhi at home – not brave enough to try for the five-dog image this time around.

Meet the Pack: Part 1

Readers may already know that as well as being a full time writer, I’m a foster carer for an animal rescue group. I specialise in dogs that are elderly and/or have health challenges, so quite often my foster animals end up staying permanently.
