THE DOG WITH THE PEARL EARRING

I am now attempting a full on blog about Billy, my very wise dog. Have I explained why I'm calling this blog The Dog With The Pearl Earring? I think so but if not I will later. Billy is now 14 months old and has brought enormous amounts of joy to me. I am sure he was God sent. Like all doggies he offers unconditional love and he teaches me so many things too. One of the many tricks is how to live in the moment. He is such a good example of that! He's not worried about yesterday or anxious about tomorrow - he lives in the present and enjoys himself 99% of the time. And the 1% he doesn't, such as the very rare occasion when another dog gives him a bit of trouble, he simply walks away and bears no grudges. It's as if he's saying 'That's his problem!'. Mind you, if he's hurt at all, like the time he stepped on something sharp out in a field, or when the vet gave him an injection for a dog bite, he howled the place down. He's not going to suppress his pain - he's going to let us know about it! But then he lets it go...

I love Billy with a passion - and because of his wonderful nature I want to find him a wife when he's about 18 months old so he and Mrs Billy can have babies...
