In search of Brian and the remaining colour of autumn in Fridaywoods 

Stella and I stepped out this morning expecting to be dodging high winds and stepping around fallen Boughs and wind swept debris but the reality was much tamer.  Yes there were a lot of leaves, however it’s autumn apart from the fact there were a lot if green leaves to.  The so called operation to …

My name is Richard and I am a boredom eater 

I have been off this week and quite apart from the obvious 2 or 3 walks with Stella I have noticed I have eaten less than I would have done if I were at work and im hoping for a good loss when I step on the scales tomorrow.  Why have I eaten less? I …

Let’s test yourself

Stella the Staffordshire bull terrier 

Come November the first Stella will be 9 or 63 whichever way you see it. I now I’m slightly biased but she’s doing well, she’s in good shape and (touch wood) has no medical problems apart from having her anal gland emptied 4 to 6 times a year.  She’s lost some of her sustained speed …

Stella, you’ve a cows chance in Hell

Ok the words Staffordshire Bull terrier combined with cows ahead is something Stella might like the sound of, but not me, first Stella,.you work as a pack and secondly you’re a bitch with not much weight behind you.  So we have, much to Stellas disgust, turned on to a different route, going towards Mersea Rd …
