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.
His owners are a particularly brave couple.ReplyDelete
I expect he'll bring them back occasionally.Delete
Was that photo taken chez MagnonReplyDelete
No; chez Rick. Taken by one of his pets I imagine.Delete
Do you all meet up occasionally?Delete
No. We met once whilst dog walking, and at other times at market. Otherwise they keep well clear of us.Delete
Long way to go for a WashReplyDelete
This is not the end, this is the start. I hope you and your pets can learn English very soon! Bon voyage mon brave!ReplyDelete
Woofe woofe (French accent).Delete
Sorry to see them go to. One less french blog. Thank goodness for yoursReplyDelete
A lone voice. On the plus side we may have a 'News from Lincolnshire' page.Delete
Will Bok, Freddie and their two pets be following suit one day ?ReplyDelete
Wishing Rick and his two pets many happy times in Lincolnshire. XXXX
We are contemplating over-wintering in Blighty again; but not for a while.Delete
I wouldn't if its going to give us winters like the last one...If I was where you are,I'd stay put!!Delete
I've always wondered where Lincolnshire is. Thank you.ReplyDelete
My description was designed for people who live in Chattanooga or Yellowstone, but glad to be of help.Delete
Some people never settle. Some people never move. I suppose it's a good job we are not all the same.ReplyDelete
They had such a beautiful house here, it must have been difficult to sell-up.Delete
Aww, look at that cutie, Rick! Such a good looking fellow. I'm sure he'll miss France but new adventures await!ReplyDelete
He really is a lovely dog. He'll cope with the move!Delete
Adorable looking pup. It is always sad when friends move away.ReplyDelete
Who couldn't love a dog like that.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Foreign Legion; Lincolnshire Branch?Delete
I think he may land not far from Elaine, and live happily, until his paws itch again.ReplyDelete
I have a feeling that his paws will be well treated against any further itching. This, I believe, is his 'forever home'.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
I'm sure he will. I believe he's off at the weekend.Delete
Friends move on. I know exactly where Lincolnshire is by your description.ReplyDelete
Thank you Andrew; I just knew it would be of help.Delete
