My friend Wilf

Every morning, over breakfast (sadly not croissants) Gail turns on the laptop and together we read about what Wilf and his family in SW France have been up to over the past twenty-four hours.  Wilfy, I know you are sick, and I just want to tell you how much pleasure you give us and to send you some love.


  1. We feel a kinship with Wilf and his peeps too. Theirs is one of the first blogs we read every day.

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

  2. We love Wilf, M'ongoose, the font, and Madame Bay, as well. It is always one of our first reads for the day.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  3. Us too, it's the first thing we do when we turn on the computer. And through him, we've made other friends who share that pleasure.

    Wirey woofs, wire-to-wire, Bertie!

    Jake and Just Harry

  4. We don't know Wilf too well but we know he will feel the love you are sending.

    There's some smashing nice and kind thoughts coming out of your Noggin Bertie. Bet that made Wilf wig his wagger.

    In fact Bertie for being so kind you deserve croissants for once. At least on Saturday. Right Gail?

    Wiry love n kisses from your Uncle Eric xx

  9. Our first read of the day is also Wilf...I read Wilf's post aloud to Henry and Rosie here in Montana and what a wonderful blog it is - witty, endearing, and now very poignant. We found your super blog via Wilf. I must say we admire Bertie very much - he's obviously a very smart young lad, and we look forward to following his adventures from across the miles.

  10. I don't always comment, but I read Wilf's blog every day. Angus is a wonderful writer. It's inspiring, endearing and always interesting.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  11. Wonderful tip of the hat to a wonderful Pon! You're a class act, young Bertie.

    Jed & Abby

  12. Such a brave doggie Wilf is!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  13. What a good and devoted furend you are Bertie. Everyone should be so lucky :)

    Big slurps, HoneyBuzz

  14. Bertie - What a wonderful welcome back home to find you working away on the computer !
