A farmers toast!

Let the wealthy and great, Roll in splendour and state, I envy them not i declare it, I eat my own lamb, My chickens and ham, I shear my own fleece and i wear it, I have lawns,I have bowers, I have fruits,I have flowers, The lark is my morning alarmer, So joyful boy's now, Here's god speed the plough, Long life and success to the farmer!!

young ethan.

There was an awful acident this week early morning before i was to set off for the woodfest. Ethan the big greyhound in the middle had a collision with one of the others while running around and the impact broke his neck, there was nothing that could be done and he had to be put to sleep
One day i'll write a cheery blog but life just seems to be doleing out dross for me at the moment.


  1. I am so sorry for your loss Bodran. What an awful accident. (((Hugs)))
    Sal. X

  2. Jo, I am so, so sorry to read this. Best warm wishes to you and your family. I hope that something surprisingly wonderful will come your way very soon.


  3. Oh Jo I am so very sorry to hear this. What a horrible thing to have happened. Huge hugs to you all. Great big massive ones...

  4. So, so saddened to just learn this. Know how devastated you must feel.

    Hope things look a little brighter soon. fx

  5. So very sorry Jo. He was a lovely dog. Big hug xxE

  6. Hi Bodran,
    I feel for you, how sad, it is awful to lose a dog, a special companion.
    I love the words at the top of your blog...so true,
    Posie x

  7. Thanks for dropping into my blog. Sorry to hear your news. Good wishes winging their way with my rainbow!!

  8. I was so shocked to read about this. I was looking at the picture of your dogs and thinking how splendid they were and then read the text. How sad. They run so fast, don't they? We have just taken our WhippetX for a walk up the hill and when we get to the field he charges up and down several times very fast. I can quite see how the accident could happen. We have to keep out Rufus's way when he is charging about otherwise we get knocked over.
    Deep sympathy and a big hug.
