We'll be away soon and Our Molly

I am so pleased to announce that we shall be once again on the move from Saturday 29th.  George's contract finished earlier than anticipated but as we'd paid for this mooring for 3-months we've stayed on.  Since George finished work it has rained on most days and until the last 4/5 days or so we were unable to start painting the roof and planks and poles etc., but now it's nearly finished and very smart it looks too.  Just an engine service to do afterwards and we'll once again be ready to Rock n Roll!
In the meantime - I want you all to say ahhhh......... how cute!!
this is Molly our Patterdale Terrior at just 2-weeks old - isn't she lovely? Her eyes were so blue!
8-weeks old in these two pictures - we've just brought Molly home ..
.. it was early February 2008 and the sun is shining

this would have been at Easter 2008 at Braunston, the company building RnR had informed us that they were going to cease trading and we'd moved the boat into the marina.  The fitout was complete but there was no engine, central heating or anything like that!  And it snowed as well - Molly was warm though in her little red jacket that I'd sewn from one sleeve of an old fleece jumper!
Molly the Meercat!!
She was just 12-weeks old when we moved onto RnR to live and she started to do this without any prompting at all, she still rises onto her back legs and walks - all the better to see further as she is so small!
April 2008 -getting bigger now - taken at Newbold Quarry amongst the primroses as we started our new life - setting off from Braunston heading for the Ashby Canal.
This is Molly as she is now - taken on the way to this marina - she looks so funny lying like this with her what seem to be double jointed back legs which look like skinny chicken drumsticks!!

  1. Hi Carol
    I've got two Labradors, Fletcher and Floyd, that lie like that - an indication of good hip joints apparently! I hadn't come across Patterdales until we cruised 'up north' but I am very taken with them; a perfect boat sized dog - no offence Fletcher and Floyd of course...
