Rick.



We're losing a well-loved nearby neighbour.

He's sold his kennel, packed his Pedigree biscuits and chews, and is heading for foreign fields.

Ever since he started travelling, he's had itchy paws. Now he's decided to take his bed, his tennis ball, his brush, and his two pets (Sue and Paul), and is heading for England, and pastures new.

I know he'll miss his native S W France, the weather, and the Chestnut woods, but he's exchanging all that for an exciting new life in Lincolnshire (that's just above the roundish sticking-out bit on the right hand side of England).

So, goodbye Rick. It was good knowing you; if all too briefly.

    1. No; chez Rick. Taken by one of his pets I imagine.

    2. Do you all meet up occasionally?

    3. No. We met once whilst dog walking, and at other times at market. Otherwise they keep well clear of us.

  3. This is not the end, this is the start. I hope you and your pets can learn English very soon! Bon voyage mon brave!

    1. A lone voice. On the plus side we may have a 'News from Lincolnshire' page.

    1. My description was designed for people who live in Chattanooga or Yellowstone, but glad to be of help.

  7. Some people never settle. Some people never move. I suppose it's a good job we are not all the same.

    1. They had such a beautiful house here, it must have been difficult to sell-up.

  9. Adorable looking pup. It is always sad when friends move away.

  10. I think my pets are truly barking to be moving away from this wonderful place and all that cheap French wine. I might run away and join the Foreign Legion.

  11. I think he may land not far from Elaine, and live happily, until his paws itch again.

    1. I have a feeling that his paws will be well treated against any further itching. This, I believe, is his 'forever home'.

  12. I am sure he will love Lincolnshire. As a born and bred 'Yellow Belly' myself I can only welcome Rick to his new home and hope loves living there.
