This is my mate Canada

He is the first mate I made in Woolacombe when I was little.  Of course, he is a greyhound and I was only a little pup and running around with him I could never keep up.  As time went by and I got bigger and faster I could out run him.  Now though he is getting older and he has a poorly leg so he now can't keep up with me

.


He is a lovely chap though and we still meet up for morning walkies.


 


Oh...and as usual mum couldn't resist doing a sketch from one of the photographs

  1. Canada looks a lovely friend and I'm sure he's taught you a lot over the years, William. Remember to let him out run you just once in a while, a boy's got his pride after all.

    Mum's sketch is lovely, it captures Canada's sweet nature.

  2. We also have a friend who is a greyhound. He is younger than us and we can't catch him, so we crouch down on the ground and leap out on him as he dashes by. We form a pincer movement and ambush him and then boss him into submission with lots of growly noises.Hen-pecked? oh yes.

  9. That's a lovely sketch. Canada is a beautiful dog too. Bibi says that aging is not fun.
    What a fun that you together let out during the morning walk.
