This is Briar the dog, reporting from the end of the sofa where I am relaxing with my squirrel and watching the ‘lympics.
I’m sorry I look a little unkempt, but I have been exploring the in the park and I had to look under a lot of shrubs and bushes in case there was anything there. You never know, do you?
Jane knitted my squirrel cushion for me, She isn’t very pleased with him – she had to use acrylic yarn so it would stand up to hard wear and tear, but she says that makes the shaping to obvious – but I think he’s lovely. He’s very comfortable to sit with, and he has some of my hair inside with his stuffing.
My life has changed a bit since Mother has gone into the nursing home. I miss her, but I agree with Jane that she needs extra looking after now, and she is happy and comfortable there. I go to visit her and the other old people sometimes, and we are very pleased to see each other, but I don’t go every time Jane visits because there is a cat living in the nursing home who doesn’t like dogs.
Now Jane and her fiance look after me, and I look after them. It works very well.
And I met some American visitors today. The spotted me and they stopped to say hello and take my photograph. Wasn’t that nice? The said that they love border terriers, but we are quite rare where they come from.
And talking of border terriers, did you see that the tame human who belongs to two border terriers won them two ‘lympic medals? They certainly have him well trained!
And that is all the news I can think of for now.
I will be back soon, and Jane will be here tomorrow to talk about books.
