Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

Heat Seeking Hound

We found an old fireplace hiding behind an electric fire not long after we moved into our new home. The fireplace had a few broken firebricks so we smashed them out last weekend and put a new fireback in. After leaving it for a week we have set a few fires going this weekend to dry things out. (I checked the chimney for leaks beforehand).

Since we got the fire going Louis has turned into a real fire-hound. He’s always liked lying in the sun and today he enjoyed a double-whammy; sunshine and a real fire.

Here he is in in action, (for action read inaction):-

Louis enjoying both high and low carbon heating

In our old home Louis never bothered with the gas fire in the lounge. A real fire, however, makes a difference as, as I type this, he’s curled up as close as he can get to the fire. Maybe it’s an instinctual behaviour for hounds as part of the deal whereby Louis keeps our back garden lion-free.
