A week ago, suddenly and unexpectedly, we lost our dear canine companion.
We buried him in the top field above the house, where he used to go to be more dog.
He would sit here with a view over our land and the length of the valley. With his nose raised to the sky, he would close his eyes and take in the scents on the air.
This arrangement was gathered from the nearby hedgerow and field banks. A collection of wild things for an almost wild boy.
We are now going to take a little time off, to recuperate and gather ourselves for the approaching winter
We are thankful to all of you who have written and will be back with you in mid-October.
