I was taking my borrowed doggy pal for walkies recently when we had to stop by a nearby house to collect something. We were invited in with hearty enthusiasm. It’s funny how friendly evryone is when you’re being tugged along by a small Irish Wolfhound. I was a tad anxious about the dog being allowed in that particular kitchen. The whole house is tue immaculate to be true but the kitchen is doubly so. The dog was very good, but evidently wanted to go and explore the magnificent garden. Hmm. my nerves were even more shredded when she disappeared for minutes at a time. . she was happily rummaging in the back of the shrubbery – looking for rabbits and squirrels. It was more relaxing when she reappeared and seemed very contents to climb up on the patio sofa next to me. It’s a lovely cane effect one with huge cushions that are firm but gently hug one. There are two sofas and two arm chairs – all very gracious living as they match the coffee table perfectly.
