We’re a third of the way through Winter and, so far, it’s been surprisingly mild. A couple of chilly Arctic blasts passed through quickly and that’s about it. No snow – yet.

We bought Zeph and Zsa Zsa new pet beds. They’re orthopedic dog beds and designed to give support to arthritic or senior dogs. Neither Zeph nor ZZ are arthritic or senior but I reckon younger dogs can benefit from having excellent quality bedding to support their joints.

I found Zeph snoozing by the fire the other day on his new bed. He loves it.
