Goodbye, Dalai Darling

It is with great sadness that I report our dearest Dalai died yesterday, 26th February.  (His full name was Dalai Rama, but I would call him Dalai Darling.)

Dalai, we are devastated you have left us so soon.  Your loss is hard to bear.



I choose to believe you are now with Bezukhov & Phineas & your little hen friend, lost before I came along.  You were adored here & you will be adored over at Rainbow Bridge.  Thank you for being such a strong & vibrant boy.

We are missing you already.  Love you always.



Love Your Pet Day, 2020

Today is ‘Love Your Pet Day’.  Of course every day is ‘Love Your Pet Day’.

My three feathery companions are all well.  They are moulting again (how is that possible?!)  Dalai has been extra grumpy because of that.  Perry is in good spirits despite his ever-growing lump.  Lennie is coping with his difficulty in flying by eating, but he has not thought that strategy through!

There is no discrimination on “Love Your Pet Day” as I also think of those long gone: our dear Raspy, her sister Atilla, handsome Thomas, incorrigible Phineas, cheeky Cagney & lastly, dear Bezukhov.  Today has been so rainy & Bezukhov loved to watch the rain…
