got back late on the Thursday evening - complete with a lily. Except
that it was not a lily - it was LILY!!!! And our lives have gone
to hell in a handcart ever since it stalked out of its travelling
case - all caramel fur, coffee coloured spots, ears the size of Dumbo
- and bright green eyes. We were shocked I can tell you!!
Mopps and Kennel Man KNEW that we Cranstal Qu's DO NOT DO
CATS! Catkin KNEW that we DO NOT
DO CATS!!! From Day 1 - Lily has never managed to quite
get her head around this fact. The result of this is that she stalks
into the kitchen first thing in the morning, takes over what we used
to view as OUR very large mat, swats everything
that displeases her (and everything that displeases her seems to
have four legs, fur and be either me - or very closely related to
me) and never hesitates to use her voice like a foghorn if crossed
in any way. And not only is it here to stay - but it appears to be
the centre of Mopps universe no less!! Any attempt on our part to
put the little blighter in its place is viewed with deep concern!
fact the only really good laugh we salukis have had since its arrival
in November has been when, within the last few days, it fell in the
pond! (Swims quite well we were disappointed to find out.) The fact
that it had to have a bath after its swim in the pond was just some
wonderful sort of bonus for the rest of us. Dont think that Catkin
was too distressed about the pond/bath incident either!!

- MOST DEFINITELY!!
this month’s final picture is of...............Fleshwick. Mopps
favourite place on this earth - and the scene of our most recent
Photoshoot. By the end of the Photoshoot however, we salukis were
not quite so sure that Fleshwick was Mopps most favourite place on
earth any longer. We dont think that she was either - as Mopps and
Kennel Man had disturbed the peace and tranquility of this hallowed
place on several occasions over our three hour sojourn on its shores.
