>Back in the land of the living

>Thanks to everyone who left a comment or emailed me after my last post. I’m back at work now & the dogs returned home yesterday after 11 days in kennels. Both have lost a lot of muscle & Oscar looks like a shaggy mutt but I’ll get them back up to scratch soon. I’m gutted […]
