Day 35 - A Sad Day

Today we heard the tragic news that Bran's surrogate chocolate mum, Dolly Doodle, had passed away :o(

Dolly had had a huge mass in her chest and went in for an operation to have it removed on Tuesday. The mass was removed and Dolly appeared to make an amazing recovery. She went home to her family - Wendy, Wiggle and Sir H - yesterday lunchtime and seemed to be quiet but ok. She passed away at 6.30 this morning.

Wendy and the boys came to spend some time with us today and it was just so very strange and sad to not have the chocolate princess trotting around behind her beloved mum :o(

Run free at the Bridge, Dolly Doodle. We will miss you always :o(

Day 31

And still he grows.................

This morning has mostly been spent digging up the gravel pit, destroying the lawn, delivering clods of earth to the hall floor and wrestling very loudly!

Thankfully, he is now having a rest and snoring!!
