The weather has changed again today. Its become very cold, It rained all afternoon yesterday. I have lit my wood burner this morning and slowly the cottage is warming up. When you go outside the sun is out, but one just gets blown away.
But for the moment.- I have a new member that has joined our family. Here he is. His name is Vouga- named after a river in the north of Portugal.. He was born at my cottage. Then went to live and be watchdog to mr M.-Who loved him so.
As Filipe can now only come up to the farm every other weekend. I have taken Vouga into my fold.
He is a wonderful loving dog. He has known me since a baby, but if anyone goes near him, while you are there or not there .. Oh no.. not near Vouga. He's my baby watchdog now.
He has to be tied up at all times. As he will go straight to the sheep . It might sound cruel.. but its not. He is perfectly happy. I walk him three times a day and he loves to play. For the time being , he is on my patio at Olive cottage, next to Rose cottage, where I stay in the winter, when I dont have guests.
I have a closed in area at Olive cottage where my doggies play around. Pedro is coming later on today, and we will be fixing an inner area where Vouga will have his new home. It will be his space. he can play till his hearts content.
Dear friends. I dont like to get "soppy" as one would say.. but I cried so much when Vouga came to me. He reminds me of Mr. M. (enough said)
I am ever so happy to have him and Filipe is delighted. He will soon be running with his cousins around the place. Lots of patience and I will get there.
Thank you to all my dear blogging friends who left comments on my last post. You are all so very kind and I am lucky to know such lovely people. Happy blogging to you all.
Wishing you a very happy week.
