When our pets needed to take tablets we used two spoons to crush them and sprinkle the powder on their food.  Surprisingly the cats never made a fuss but Jack (the Jack Russell) was suspicious and gav

Yes friends, our little Jack is now resting peacefully 4 foot beneath one of our flower beds.   I’ve just not felt like logging on here for a couple of days.  Yesterday morning the very diff

I have now had my new companion for 4 days, Ripley became Jj, got fed up of being asked why we had named him after the place called Ripley! He has settled in really well and up to now has: Pulled

Stuart, I presume it was a miniature/ toy poodle that was the cross as Westies are quite small aren’t they.  Standard poodles can be very big dogs!  Or is it all done like breeding cattle.these days?

We nearly had a pair of Mallards set up home on the pond. Lovely birds and because the pond is only 5 feet from the conservatory, we could watch them peacefully. Got them almost eating out of my hand. The cats and dog showed interest but not aggressively so, until Patch the JR took it into his head to chase them off yesterday afternoon. They came back this morning and all was OK all day until Patch chased them off again. Doubt if we will see them again. Bleddy dog, cats, hens - all acting like animals...... The beaten up hen seems to be recovering without being isolated. So she will be left in with her sisters for a while. This will give me time to paint the isolation coup ready for new birds when restrictions are lifted (bird flue).

I do believe it is Alvecote, Warks. Their narrowboat has a distinctive engine noise. Julie (of Tone and Julie, the owners) has just had an article published in the Feb edition of Narrow Boat Magazine.

Ube, their engine is a Russell Newbery DM Diesel - 1939. They ask where you are moored, you never know they might know you!

The pair of Mallards are now regarded as pets. I have knocked up a temporary shelter for them on the side of the pond. They have been inside it a few times and if they are still using it tomorrow I'll make something a bit more suitable. Patch is getting used to them and the cats obviously think they are too big for them. The ducks (Donny and Dilly) seem to have the measure of them :biggrin: They love the hen's mixed corn and layers pellets. If they stay and lay eggs I'm just hoping that the ducklings survive. If they stay on the water they should be OK.

More power to your Pevril Aquatic Wildlife park. A pair of Flamingos should complete it.

Thank you Tracey for posting the boat picture.  i have copied and sent it to the cousins. Muchgigglin' is completely red if memory serves me correctly.  They took us on there for a couple of days, just pootling along at 3mph, it was lovely.

ube. When I saw Braunston on your boat it rang a bell. Cousin Julie confirmed that that was where we moored for the night. We walked over a bridge and up a steep path to the town and ate dinner in a pub there.  She asked what your name was, all I could tell her was Ube! They will be going through Trent Lock, hopefully, mid to late May.

Braunston is a lovely place built upon the canal system..... "Braunston" won't on the side much longer, we're paint her this year..... And we're having "Fellows Morton & Clayton" put back on the side and replacing Braunston with NOTTM...... We shall be about the area late May so we might bump into them
