Hi, Kevin here. Perce and I had a discussion and we decided I’d write about Colman, because it’s a whole year since he left us. And since Mummy’s done some funny things this week, we need to tell you about her, too. But she hasn’t left us, let’s be straight about that.
Colman and I came to live with Mummy in 2012, and we’ve had a great time with her. Colman was already nearly four when he arrived, and he celebrated his seventh birthday about a month before he went over the Rainbow Bridge. This is one of our favourite pictures of him, although to be honest, we all look good with birthday cake!
We had a great time together. He was an amiable chap, with lots of funny stories, and he was the sort of guy you could rely on if you were in trouble. He was also very loyal, although he didn’t trust people until they’d proved themselves. Once they had, he was true to them right to the end. I wrote the whole story about how we came here last year, but I just thought you’d like to remember him, and what a good chap he was. I bet he’s having fun over the Rainbow Bridge now. Although I must admit, I wonder what happened to their peace and quiet once Dylan arrived :O
Now, what has Mummy been up to, I hear you ask.
She told us a couple of times last week that she’d be going out on Thursday and coming back later looking a bit funny, and she might not be able to give us a run or clean us out on Friday. Well, it’s always good to have warning if something strange is going to happen, because we are creatures of habit. Wake-up, cuddles (meds for me), clean-out, run around, breakfast, nap, hay, nap, lunch, head-scratch, nap, grass-time if we’re lucky, nap, supper, snuggle if we’re lucky, nap, cucumber, bedtime. You get the picture.
Well, she went out as she said, and came back a while later looking a bit like a bee, with one huge eye. She showed me closer and it was a plastic cover over her eye. She said it was to stop her from scratching or rubbing it. She’s been having trouble with it. I know because I’ve seen her do funny things because she hasn’t been judging distances well. Anyway, she had an operation on it and now it’s a lot better. She says it’s getting better every day. The good thing was, she could pick us up and give us our usual cuddle and run around on Friday, no problems at all. So she must be fine really.
We’re very glad Mummy is fine. We love you, Mummy.
