Diego in the Castle Grounds

November 2015.

Dogs aren’t allowed in the gardens of Blarney Castle any more. Tourists had apparently slipped on dog excrement if what I’ve heard is true. I also heard that dogs were on the loose but the only dogs I saw off the lead in there were the Springers that belong to the owner of the Castle. A shame that dog owners can’t pick up after their dogs.

The gardens there are beautiful, and if you’re visiting Cork they’re worth a look, but they obviously don’t need or care for local people enjoying them.

1,000 Days of Photos

Somehow I’ve managed to post a photo a day (with only one or two interruptions, one of which was because of a DDOS on my hosting provider) for 1,000 days. To celebrate I give you not one, but two photos of my dear dogs.


Oscar was a cranky old soul, but we discovered his teeth were very bad and likely made him argumentative. He was a rescue and when we first got him he wouldn’t trust anyone. He always was on alert. He could not relax. We hired someone to help him, and after a short session his mood improved immeasurably. We discovered he had an amazing fetch instinct. He’d run after a tennis ball anywhere and seemed tireless. Old age caught up with him though, and our vet warned us he had to take it easy because of his heart. In time we carried him with us on journeys in a child’s buggy. He *adored* my wife. Anywhere she went, he was likely walking next to her. He died in 2014.


Diego came into our lives in 2015, shortly before I started on this marathon 1,000 photo marathon. He’s a rescue too, and for such a small dog has a big heart full of love for all of us. He loves us all, and loves his toys. 🙂
