Dog Therapy

Life’s shit right now.  (Yes, we can swear here, Lucy.)  My Mum’s very ill and there’s nothing I can do to make it better other than be here for her. 

Tonight we sat and looked through photos on my Dad’s computer.  Found these ones of Rosie from a day out at Balmedie beach and the games night that followed.  They made me smile.

Dogs are wonderful.
