Picture Parade Four Hundred and Sixty-Eight

Once again taken from Unsplash apart from the last two photographs.







My love for dogs in general and the German Shepherd in particular goes back to 1955 when I was 10 years old. My father offered to look after a GSD called Boy. Boy belonged to a lovely couple, Maurice and Marie Davies.  They were in the process of taking over a new Public House (Pub); the Jack & Jill in Coulsdon, Surrey.  My father had been the architect of the Jack & Jill. Boy quickly bonded with me and that love for the dog never left me.

Beloved Pharaoh. Born: June 3rd., 2003 – Died: June 19th., 2017. A very special dog that will never be forgotten.

Pharaoh meeting Cleo, the year being 2012.

Cleo will be eleven on the 25th January, 2023. Where did the years go?

    1. Thank you, Sue. I know that I am most definitely in the last phase of life. Trying hard not to over focus on this but others of a similar age to me that I know well, such as Dan Gomez who I was chatting to yesterday, share my thoughts. Thank goodness for this blog in maintaining the link between us!

      1. 🙂 we are as old as we feel Paul… but I agree when I look back on my own life, when one is young we never think on how time is passing we are so wrapped up with earing a crust Lol.. I wonder how I ever found time for work now I am retired 🙂 and the perception of Time goes ever faster…. Just make the most of every moment is my moto.. 🙂 ❤
        Be well, and much love to you both ❤


      2. Sue, I am not sure I like that expression because some days I feel very old. 😂 But in general I feel good, very good! Love to you and your family. ❤️
