It's almost a year since Dad died. How did that time go by so quickly ?
Even Frankie de tabby moved on bless his old paws, we miss that fluffy scrounging old bag of bones. He left us the power of his paw so we are keeping it.
Things have changed over the last year but our old cottage is still here and full of the same lovely feeling it has always had. Soggibottom is home and full of Luvs. We needed a bit of time to adjust to our new life without Dad, the reason why posts have been almost non existent and I haven't been around much.
As most paws nose I have a new friend called Ark, who lives with me and mum at Soggibottom cottage.
Looking out for new paws was never going to be easy on our own, but it has been enjoyable time watching Ark grow and learn. Ark needed us just as much as we need him. Ark has a different look from your normal French Bulldog, he definitely won't make Crufties like his mum and dad but we luvs him. He is bold, outgoing, loving and loyal. Sits when asked, does high fives and gives his paw even when there isn't a cookie enticement. He stays, comes when asked and often walks off a lead (when it's safe to do so) and never goes one step away from mum unless it's to chase me, then he stops and looks back to make sure she is following.
As you see he often takes over around here. He kind of sneaks into things, he sneaked into our hearts and we hope this endearing little guy sneaks into yours too.
I've been giving him lessons on the beach, he is going to make a perfect hole digger given time.
Ark is now five months old, it's about time we both went back to the pack and joined in the fun in blog land.
Look out for us cos we will be around.
Luv's Freya and Ark XX
