Farewell to our beloved Owain

We recently lost Owie, at the grand age of 14.  He is sorely missed by us and by his brother, Iolo. Anyone who has known such loss will emphasise with Rudyard Kipling’s poem (see sidebar).

One for all you second home owners!

Do you have an unusual pet?

We have an unusually large number of pets, both inside and outside the house. But none are of an unusual species (although most have quite odd characteristics one way and another). We haven’t, for example, had a fish, a lizard, an iguana, a snake….. Not even a bunny (well one of the others would eat that for sure). Does your family have something special or unusual? Let us know – perhaps something for the kids to do during the long summer holiday. Send them in with pictures please.
