Meet Tilly...

It's 2014 and I am currently out of the rat race. Whether this is temporary or permanent remains to be seen but more about that later.

With time on my hands and the knowledge that 2014 is going to be the most AWE-SOME year, I did something that I've wanted to do for years and have been planning for almost as long. I got a puppy!

Meet Tilly.

She's a liver and white cocker spaniel. She's too cute for words, enjoys eating stones (why?) and for such a small thing, she has already bruised my arm, fingers, ear, nose and neck!

Today she learned to bark.

I was at a crossroads. Did I acknowledge the total adorability of the cute little bark by laughing, smiling and treating her like the clever dog she is? Or, in order to make sure barking doesn't become a persistent occurrence, should I put a harsh look on my face, shake my head and give a firm no.

I'm a responsible dog owner so I did the right thing. I looked at her in shock and then started to laugh uncontrollably. I'll decide which path to take the next time she barks at me!

I have to admit that she's exhausting! I'm also currently flaring so to say I'm wabbit is a tiny bit of an understatement. Luckily, not being in the rat race means that I don't have to do my hair, make-up, clothes, shower or any of those other pesky things!!

But welcome to Tilly. She'll be a fab friend

I'm leaving the above in - that was Tilly bouncing onto the keyboard as I typed!!

Good times!


  1. Not good times - wonderful times! K, MN to Tilly too! :oD

  2. Ohhhhh she is GORGEOUS! I'd love a Cocker Spaniel, got the name picked out and everything! I'm so, so jealous!x

    1. Thank you. I've wanted a puppy for years (and didn't end up going with the name I always thought I would!). It's been a lot harder than I expected but I'm having the time of my life! Life's short - get the puppy!! :D
