"Can it really be ten years?" Gail exclaimed this morning when she woke up.
I looked at her expectantly. Although past experience has taught me not to raise my hopes too high.
Then Gail gave me a big hug and said "Happy tenth birthday darling Bertie! Look here's your present and card and we'll have a special birthday tea later when I get home from work."
So after she left I had time to read the message in the card, and then I dozed off (us senior dogs do like our naps) and waited for her to return.
It seemed an age, but for once the wait was worth while. A two course celebratory supper!
First course was home made ox liver biscuits garnished with a choice of soft cheese, peanut butter or marmite.
(Why don't I get peanut butter more often?)
Then for afters, it was a black pudding special.
Liver and black pudding all in one meal!
Does life get any better?
