Today the weather was fantastic.  After days of rain, fog, wind, even thunder, the last couple of days have improved dramatically.  Sunny, still, clear, frosty at first.  We took the dogs to the beach.  Berri loved it as always, and even Barney had a run around.  Berri does seem slightly subdued, we think he is missing his playmate.  Although he played with other dogs on the beach, he did not do so as eagerly as I had anticipated.  the beach is his favourite place.  It was fairly empty, but there were some people, and plenty of dogs there!  The photo was not taken today, but everything was similar, although these were probably taken in the summer.

Yesterday was a very sad day.  We had Sky, our adored blue merle collie, put to sleep.  She had been ill for a few weeks, and the time was right.  But, it was almost unbearable, and the rest of the day, I was just desperate for her to be with us.

Today, I feel a little stronger, and more able to remember the good times and the joy she brought us.

Sky doing what she loved best.  She was 15, a very good age.
