Dixie Becoming A Local Celebrity

The news of a new puppy on the island has been spreading fast and in order to handle all visitors we had to set up visiting hours. This morning’s first visitor told us that Dixie had been hot news during a church supper where people had been wondering who had already seen the puppy.
Of course, we welcome everyone to see Dixie, as it is very good to become socialised for her. Whenever she sees strangers at the door, entering the house she runs away and goes hiding in a corner. That is not a
desirable trait for a dog. As you can imagine it can quickly become a problem once Dixie reaches adulthood and her full size. So we are happy about the visitors trying to gain Dixie’s trust. Having a goodie for her, of course, helps the cause.

Last night, it was Bea’s turn to spend a night on the couch, while I turned out the light upstairs. Now, whether it was the spent night on the couch or the 4-hr-long drive on Sunday, I don’t know, but my lower back is aching like crazy.

Weather has been getting colder and the air feels raw, but after all it is actually the middle of November and we are more fortunate than other parts of the country as we have no snow yet.


  1. You are patient folks to house train a puppy. It is a lot of attention work.

  2. Glad to see your expectations are being met by "Dixie". Looking forward to seeing her as she grows.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Third picture on the right......I'm Sorry,Did I Do That !
