A very pleasant day here so far (4.11pm) with sunshine and a light breeze. Tess and I have walked twice round the estate and also waited in for J, the new dog-walker. She and Tess took to one another instantly and she is a 'terrier lover' which always helps as terriers are a law unto themselves, as any terrier owner will agree.
They had half an hour communing with one another and are now intending to walk together every Tuesday and Friday - starting tomorrow. It is a relief that it appears to be going to work out. I feel it is so important that she gets more stimulation than I am able to give her in just walking round the estate. She adores friend S who takes her most Wednesdays and now to have two more days again should be so much better for her. J was surprised to hear of her age, agreeing that she looked so much younger and fitter - long may it continue.
For some reason I had a very bad night's sleep last night so am feeling pretty ragged by this time and so shall not attempt to write any more. See you tomorrow.
