    I can't resist! This gal we picked up from a dog rescue just a couple of days ago. She was a hard to place dog because she was so timid. Since I used to do rescue myself I asked for a hard luck case. She's doing great and almost 3 years old. She keeps going to the couch as her safe spot but is starting to venture forth and has played with my dobie some! Much more than we expected so soon!

    Oh what a beauty! does she have a name? She looks quite like a Manchester terrier.

    @Fairygodmother I'm in the failure to post pictures club with you. I cannot get my phone to talk to my computer and my camera's given up the ghost. I will keep trying, honest, @ANTJE. She's doing very well, has met my friend's two adult dogs, was cautious of the spaniel at first but already wants to box with her. She thought the little one - a Scotty/Westy cross who's actually shorter than Mattie - was a safe bet; little did she know! Jumped on her from behind and was told in some very rude dog language to clear off. So she's now extemely interested but circumspect - very funny.

    A couple of minor hypos (just lows really) due to running after a puppy, apart from which all quiet on the T1 front.

    Her name is Sydney, the rescue called her that because they thought she had some Australian Shepherd in her. She doesn't look it from her pics, but she's about 3 stone. They actually did a DNA chart on her and she has, Australian Shepherd,Australian Cattle Dog, Terrier Group, Black and Tan Coonhound, Greyhound, and Lhasa Apso huh???? lol

    Wow, that's some mix! I looked up Aus coonhond as I don't know the breed and the black and tans look like Sydney. She's literally running rings around Kai, great vid, thanks

    Morning dog and cat lovers,
    I thought yesterday was a chilled day. And then I realised I went to the gym, did the laundry, baked some bread, dyed my hair and made a couple of felt robins as well as ate cake and shopped for tea.
    Unfortunately, I have to work today. But at least, working from home, I don't need to venture out into the wet. Himself was very grumpy when he looked out of the window and went back to get his full waterproof gear to walk to work.

    Diabetes? I think it is time to tweak my insulin sensitivity factor - if I need to correct in the night, I am too low by the morning.

    May your dogs keep you entertained ... and if you have none of your own, may dog videos keep you entertained.

    Ladies, do you think I can get away with a pair of thick leggings under my skirt and low top dr martens? I don't have tights and professional smart shoes. :(

    I’ve tried sending them from my iPhone and my iPad. I’ve a slightly old apple pc too that I’ll have a go from later today. I know Mel said she’s been able to send from an iPhone. Heartened by cloud contact video success so I’ll try that later too.

    If your leggings have no holes in, your DMs are clean and you feel comfortable, I would have no problem with how you are dressed.
    It is the person in the DMs, leggings and skirt that is being interviewed, not the clothes.

    Check your BG before you go in, make any necessary correction and then go, knock 'em dead.
