Planted out my runner bean plants today.  Lookimg good but a few holes in the leaves alerted me to slugs.  I always check the rootball before planting out and sure enough tucked in nice and cosy were a few small slugs.

You may be right then Blue.

So upset

Granma, I guess we have all been there.  Kids are so adults say. They will understand and probably feel more for you so words about how lovely Lucky was, now pain free and lots of happy memories.

i dread my own dog's passing.  He is loved so much.  He is 11 and stiff with arthritis.  I will be upset but more concerned with niece being upset.  He is her dog really, her birthday present, etc. 

we forget, it seems, that we have a pet for a few years only so should be prepared....we never are, are we?

you will find the words Granma.  Comfort time all round
