This is the most menacing photo I have of baby Gillian. Something has peeved her.

Bacchus has perfected the art of policing. Here, the 15 month old Shetland Sheepdog is seen in action as he disarms and overpowers a dangerous suspect with minimum force. The unidentified suspect, seen to the right in baby disguise, was later remanded in custody pending further investigation.

This growth thing is really taking off. She was 50 cm when she arrived; she is 67 cm now. That’s 33% over 7 months.

Her first high-chair arrived this morning. It looks nice.  I’m imagining her enjoying her pumpilicious pumpkin purée. It is nice.

It was a dark and stormy evening. No kidding.

Bacchus and I spent the hour before sunset walking around the Cove yesterday. It was just us boys, and Bacchus decided to sniff his way south-west along the newly opened section of the walkway along the beach front.

As we neared the end of the old walkway, we noticed some policemen cordoning off a small area in one of the homes under construction. Ah, it must have been a work-related accident or client-contractor disagreement. Nothing could be more mundane: the workers had discovered an unexploded bomb. There it was, protruding from the garden. Keen to learn a little about the origin of the bomb, I chatted with other interested bystanders nearby. Unknown to me, Bacchus was happily sniffing away around where the bomb lay.

Perhaps he fancies himself as a part of the Police’s Canine Unit, or Bomb Disposal Unit. No, he didn’t pee on it.

We continued our exploration. It is really quite a sight: the area is very well maintained and the stormy weather made for an even enjoyable experience, as these photos show.

Prince passed away exactly a year ago.

Jen found some photos of him while spring cleaning. Here is one of him as a puppy.
