Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence.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.

Chloe

We had some sad news from Sid today. His doggie Chloe took a turn for the worse at the vets and they felt the kindest thing was to let her go.

Sue and I have some brilliant memories of playing with Chloe in the back garden in Rowville and also going for walks with her, Sid and the squirlies when we visited so many years ago.

Here’s that pic I referred to in the last post:-

As you can see, she was a looker.

Down under doggie

Sid sent us a few nice piccies of his hound Chloe (the one with a lot of Ridgeback in it) so here’s one of them. Chloe has been dipping her muzzle in the sugar bowl as you can see. (That means she’s got grey whiskers).

Sid emailed today to say that Chloe was poorly and at the vets. We hope she gets better soon. Chloe has made an appearance on the blog before:- Chloe and Amaya.

There’s a nice pic of Sid and Chloe but Sid detracts from Chloe so we’ll save that piccie for now! Sorry Sid.

I’ll have a half…

As promised here’s a picture of Sid and his mate Pete enjoying a (few cans of) Guinness whilst on their recent holiday.

You can compare Sid one year on from this post:- Guinnessy Sid one year ago
The only difference I can see is that they are sat somewhere different. Oh, and that Sid seems to be dying his hair.

Breaking News…

It’s that time of year when we post a pic of Sid in Australia drinking a huge Guinness. That will come. Unfortunately Sid & Sue’s daughter Amaya took a tumble on the first day of their holidays in Adelaide and broke her leg. Poor thing. Here she is looking chirpy in her purple cast that she’ll have to wear for a few weeks.

That must have hurt.

That must have hurt.

Apparently it didn’t stop her from running around and enjoying the rest of the holidays.
