Monty Comes of Age.
There are rites of passage for humans and animals alike.
I've been waiting with baited breath for 6 month old Monty to 'cock his leg' for the first time (rather than squat), and today he obliged.
This morning I was out with Monty, his friend Bok, and The Black Bastard. The BB had a pee; leg in air. Bok then followed; also leg in air. Then Monty, not wanting to look too girlie, also used the same leg-lifting method.
Oh how grown-up he looked. No longer a pup, but a dog who's taken his place amongst respectable male leg-lifting canine society.
And, of course, there's the new proud owner who can now show off his dog in public; in the knowledge that he does things correctly (at last). That's-a ma boy!
It’s dawn over Trelawnyd.
The sky looks like one *Turner *would have painted with big clouds tinged
with pink and blue.
I’ve just taken *Dorothy *outside...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
