I like everyone else, was very upset to hear that Chip had lost Sam, I'd got to know them over the past year or so, and being a dog lover took interest in his goings on, it is just so sad and very upsetting when your best friend has to be given that final sleep, I know the feeling only too well, I've had to do it several times.
Just before I read about Chip and Sam, I'd been contemplating having another dog, Tango is 13 in a couple of weeks., if I have him for another two years I will consider myself lucky, if three, I will be well blessed.
When my friend Sue had Tango when I went to Jersey, it came to her that when his life is over I will be a basket case, and she knows me well enough to know how true that would be, so we started making enquiries. I was contacted by an old acquaintance from way back, Eddie, with an offer of a bitch she had that needs a home, she's 8 yrs old. Sue and I had planned to go to-day to Dorchester to meet them, Ruby she is called, they were coming from Devon,
Well the snow put paid to that didn't it! so we're going on Sunday, weather permitting.
When I got up this morning I discovered that we hadn't escaped the snow after all, [I was feeling a bit smug we hadn't had any] it was 5" deep in places and still falling. A couple of phone calls to cancel the meeting and got togged up to take Tango out, I thought, that was easier said than done,
