Monday & Tuesday

Yesterday, I had a short walk before heading off to keep a hospital appointment.

Yellow Mahonia blooms beamed at me to brighten the day.

I was almost tempted to remove my shoes and walk barefoot in the moss.

Today, I brought a friend to Clotworthy House for coffee, we talked that much, I forgot to air my camera, so there are no photos.

I called at Lidl on my way home, where I met Ivy

Ivy is a Labrador/Setter cross, about one year old. Today she was learning to sit and stay. She behaved very well. In the next couple of months she will learn to become an assistance dog, before moving to improve the quality of life for a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder,

Assistance Dogs Northern Ireland (ADNI) aim to train assistance dogs to improve the quality of life for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and for people who are disabled or have uncontrolled epileptic seizures, their services are available to residents all over Northern Ireland.

May Ivy enjoy many years providing a physical and emotional anchor for a child with Autism.
