Brian has been off work for a few days, and our old dog Ben died on Thursday morning. Ben our Dalmatian had been ill with a heart condition for 18mths, he was on medication all that time and it didn't stop him, he had a good life still enjoyed his walks, he got 4 or 5 a day. But a few weeks ago he really slowed down and started to show his age nearly 13. He started to have difficulty breathing and got slower and slower and on Wednesday we had a sleepless night with him Brian and I between took turns to sit with him, and next morning we decided it was time to let him go. We new it had to happen sooner or later, and we knew it was the right thing to do. So on Thursday Brian took him to the vets and came back heartbroken. The vet said that one half of his heart had stopped working.
We had planned to go to the County Show that day and was meeting up with our daughter and her husband and our Grandaughter Grace so we went there and had a good day and it helped us take our mind off what had happened, and today we had another family day at Warwick Castle and had a brilliant day, but it seem strange coming home to an empty house, we are not going to get another dog just yet, I think we will wait until Brian retires, we have always had a dog but the time is not right just now for the commitment that a new dog brings.
Sorry this is a long blog today, but thank you for taking the time to visit. I really do appreciate everyone who visits and leaves a comment, and I promise to try to visit everyone soon.

Made this card today for using the sketch over on Carol's challenge blog. I love this stamp from The Unity stamp Co. papers from DCWV "The Spring Stack"
Well IT' S here again, the FOOTIE season has started again, Brian is a Man Utd Fan so now when he's not playing Golf he will be watching the Football, and it doesn't matter what time of day or night there is always a match to watch, these things do interfere with life...they do say "If you can't beat them join them" but the trouble is I don't want to. so it's off to the craft room for me.
