The past few days I was meeting with priests from the Archdiocese of Tuam for their annual Diocesan Retreat. Have to say, I enjoyed the days very much – not least meeting some very good and decent men who have given countless years of service to the Church. There was good humour there, prayer and a common purpose. All in all, a memorable and enjoyable few days.
I arrived home after lunchtime and, looking across the wall to greet “Alpha” was greeted by another face in the field. (I had some fore-warning of this, insofar as I was told there was a small dog in the field but I thought he might be gone by the time I got home – alas!!).
So my family has, for the time being at least, increased. I will make enquiries and see what can be done. Have to confess, I’ve a great fondness for Jack Russell terriers but amn’t sure I can cope with a new family member!! He seems very friendly and, chances are, someone is looking for him so, should that be the case, I hope their search takes them in my direction.
For now, he’s here with Alpha and myself and seems (possibly too much so!!) at home!!
Dog re-united with his owner! Just bade farewell to “BOBBY” and, have to say, a bit sorry to see him go! I’m sure he’s happy to be with his own though.
I’ve a sneaking suspicion I might see him in the field again. He’ll be welcome and will be assured of safe passage home after he rambles a while!!
