Run Roxy, run!

Meet Roxy, Rik and Luce's dog.

It has been a while since I lived with a dog and being around Roxy is making me miss having one. The last time I did was when I was a boy and I just love dogs. The companionship, the affection and the idea of having to walk a dog sounds great to me. I could really do with the exercise.

So yes, we have been considering getting our own. There is just one problem – NIk and I both work long hours in the day and the dog would have to be on its own. We don't feel that is very fair on the dog so unless we can figure out a permanent work-around, no dog! :(

We did visit some kennels today as we would have a rescue pet. To be honest I found it quite hard to be around all the dogs, confined to their pens but that's because I am an old softy.

As for the photo it is Roxy at full pelt when we took her for a walk this afternoon. I did promise Rik I would photograph her so here you go pal. I am bound to put up some other shots so keep an eye out for more. Roxy is just the best! Right Rox?

Woof! (yep)
