Bonnie's Battle ~ as many of you will know Bonnie our Bearded Collie and one half of the Glenbogle two went totally blind earlier this year, it hit both of us hard to take in she would never see again, however she is showing remarkable resilience and determination to get on with life and is now an inspiration to me now when I get in one of my Victor Meldrew moods.
I recently wrote an article (Not in the class of Glenn) but my own short story and to deal with the news to the Greyfriars magazine, she got front page picture and a two page spread on the inside pages, the company who issue the wee mag have sent me a couple of extra copies so if any of you would like a read PM me with yous contact details and I will post them out to you.
It's just come to me that place that I was going on about and could not remember with the intention to visit in the States a few years back, as I loved the film FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE WHISTLE STOP CAFE. The place was called Juliette which was where they filmed the cafe scenes and I believe is still there? A bit of useless information that has took only five weeks to recall - must be an age thing.
Stephen - the mag arrived today. Nice little write up on Bonnie - a shame it's black and white but I know too well the economics of color and printing.Thanks for sending it. Gayl I could easily scan it and send you a pdf file by email if you'd like.
Went down to Turnberry which is 15 miles down the coast from me at 7am on a beautiful sunny morning, Turnberry Golf resort has just been bought by Donald Trump, I walked along the beach with my two pals until we came to the Famous lighthouse, thought I would share the photo with you
Sad news to all my friends Bonnie our dear Bearded Collie passed away after A short illness, she was one half of the Glenbogle two and only 9 which is to young to leave us, some of our favourite moments with her was our visit's to the Ardverekie estate where even after her blindness she loved the beach their, what made it so hard was that she coped so well with her disability and certainly taught me a thing or too about getting on with life and making the most of what you have. RIP dear Bonnie.
So very, very sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. She seemed a wonderful dug and I am so glad I got to meet her. I'm very fond of the picture of me with Bonnie and Clyde. My own dear Bailey turned 18 in March and seems as if maybe she'll outlive me. I know too well how attached we become to our pets and my heart hurts tonight having just read this about Bonnie.
Sorry to say he just left us at 14 1/2 years old, he was getting senile, and frankly quite bitey. He had bad arthritis in all limbs and could hardly walk, after years of hiking in the California mountains. The king of dogs in my eyes, the best dog for me, a loyal companion and defender. Thanks Sam!
He looks a lovely loyal friend, great when they are here with us but such a sad time when they depart, still think of Bonnie virtually every day, when they go they leave us with so many happy memories.
How time fly's by, Bonnie as a pup 10 years ago and now the new pup Ellie with Clyde teaching her all his tricks. Must admit will have to pay a visit to the beach at Glenbogle some day to let Ellie have a run as Bonnie used to love it on there, happy memories.
