The last couple of months have been a very trying time. I lost my wonderful friend Joan at the beginning of December. It was a real shock; very much unexpected. I spent a large portion of each day with her, and walked her lovely boy Riki every day with my bunch too. Riki has now become the newest member of the family.
Riki is naturally a real stress-head, but he has known me and my dogs for many years now, and so the transition has been relatively straight forward, and he has settled well.
Rookie and I did have one brilliant day out shooting, with some new guns who were really impressed with him. He made me so proud when my head really wasn't in it, just what I needed. Feels like forever ago with everything that's gone on but we hope to get out again soon. We have been really busy with not so nice stuff, but looking forward to being busy with some exciting things soon.
