Sometimes things happen for a reason....

Sometimes things are just meant to be. Example:

Dog gets lost. I find it. I return dog to owner. Owner shows me her puppies; all sold and ready to go. Phone call from prospective new owner - mother taken seriously ill can no longer take puppy. Puppy is very gorgeous. I am there!

  1. Paul is in London at a friend's wedding and I cannot contact him
  2. I haven't got the cheque book with me
  1. I return with cheque in hand and Paul gets a surprise welcome home!
  2. I find somewhere else to live very quickly!
Luckily Paul thinks that Velvet is rather cute. I do think that she would be hard for anyone to resist. A Jack Russell x Cocker Spaniel: wellies!

Oscar checking out Velvet

 In a playful mood

She may be the smallest but Velvet is not the youngest resident at Beck brow; Nutmeg still retains that title. Nutmeg is the reason that Paul was a wedding gooseberry.  Blanche was supposed to be due around now but decided to deliver at 323-days!

Nutmeg is growing well. I love the way that she does a really big stretch when she stands after wakening. My Mum was is a farmer's daughter as well as a farmer's wife and always says "they're not ailing much when they stretch like that" . So I always take it as a good sign.

Nutmeg having a good old stretch!


  1. That's a very cute little puppy!
    Nutmeg looks very healthy - and another girl! Congratulations!

  2. Velvet looks gorgeous and full of fun.
    Happy days!

  3. Velvet looks fun! Nutmeg is lovely. What a great colour!

  4. Velvet looks irresistable ! and Nutmeg looks stretchier than a stretchy thing!
