Daft dogs…and daft owners

And here’s Lucy!

Her daft owners put the scarf on her but the sock in her mouth is all her own doing

(gun dogs like the feel of something in their mouths apparently –

which explains why she loves meal times so much I guess!).

She may be a little grey around the chops but she thinks she’s still a puppy.

Which reminds me of one of my favourite quotations from GB Shaw;

“We don’t stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing”

Hi, I’m Jill, a writer and teacher living in the UK, usually behind a desk but sometimes on a sofa with a book or a film. I began writing at around age three, legibly by five, although I didn’t write any stories until I was older. Aged eleven, I began writing children’s fiction, mostly middle-grade fantasy and I’m still doing it to this day. I have had stories published online and in My Weekly magazine. The best bit about writing is when ideas pop into your head (from the writing fairy presumably?) and everything starts clipping together like a jigsaw puzzle. The worst bit? When you start to get the feeling there's a piece missing from the box...

  1. Snorticles – mommy watches me run up/down the hall for five minutes and then tells me ‘shes’ had enough of exercise – snorts. Love you my friend. XOXO – Bacon


  2. Aww! What breed is Lucy? She looks so much like our dog Lucky. We found her when she was a puppy (I didn’t think she’d survive, thus the name) and have never been able to confirm her breed. She’s really smart and will play fetch FOREVER!


    1. Ha ha! Lucy is a bit obsessive about her game of fetch, too. We like to think she’s smart but I suspect we’re just being swayed by her cuteness (she’s a Labrador and so could teach Puss in Boots a few things about switching on the cuteness :-)).
