Angels Come in Black - The Art Critic

Warning:   This article comes with a Government Health Warning and is not intended for the squeamish reader.

After a series of bizarre incidents I have come to the conclusion that a statement is being made about my garden seating arrangements, my plant selection and my garden art.  Lilo is bright, but would you say that expressing an opinion on such matters is beyond a dog ?  I think not.

Update on Sunny (Ibiza Fling)

Sunny (Ibiza Fling)  is settling in very nicely.  He and Penny (our Rottie) get on so well, they have not had one disagreement.  Sunny is now a Canine Friends dog (pet therapy) and has had 2 visits to the Rest Home.  He was very well behaved and the residents thought he was great.  He is sitting nicely and also does a "wait€ before he eats his food. He mastered the dog door within 4 days and was house trained within 2 days.

a'ngel (-nj-) n.1. Lovely or innocent being;

You might be wondering where all this 'angel' stuff is coming from. Well, that is how Lilo's last trainer described her for the GAP adoption process.

"Lilo is an angel, she has no bad habits€¦€¦€¦a beautiful quiet girl€¦€¦€¦the perfect dog€.

And later she wrote to me€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦"beautiful looking - a credit to her first trainer,€¦€¦€¦..raced like a champ€¦€¦€¦€¦€¦if human, she would be described as the perfect child€.

Lilo - Angels come in black

The house was deathly quiet in the small hours, just as it had been for many weeks. No crashing dog-door (sometimes thrown off its apparently "robust hinges€ and into the garden), no more distant sound of a frantic cat-claw scrabble up the fence and no more slobbering lip-flapping snore coming from the dog bed. My much loved Boxer, Romeo had passed away and the silence was a deafening bottomless pit.

Update on Gypsy (Madam Leah)

Gypsy is enjoying the spring weather in the Wairarapa in her usual slightly loopy style! She's now an 'only child' so has been going on a lot of walks to keep her amused as she's still a very active girl at nearly 9 and loves chasing balls and her squeaky toys. The photo shows her usual anticipation at getting a treat - tongue at the ready.
