Virginia landed from a skiing holiday at 4pm and was with me by 7.30pm to pick him up. She was a little keen to have him home! She arrived laden with new goodies for him and he had lots more waiting for him at home.
Ungrateful little beggar, he jumped straight into Virginia's car wagging his tail and didn't look back once apart from to say "bye then. And you know, I wouldn't have had it any other way.
Be happy little man. Another hound we will miss having around.
