This is for BONKERSBON

This is a watercolour I did just before Xmas from one of Bonkers' lovely photos of birds in his garden. And being in a festive frame of mind, I decided to add in a bit of holly too :-)

Magnoliatree - thank you! You haven't seen all the 'disasters' I keep strictly to myself!

Janey - Ooo-er....only just managed to paint it more by accident than judgement - think embroidery might be pushing my luck a bit too far! x-D

Hi Np..Jane here..Im his other half..often come on to talk wildlife..my passion..as well as animals in general..he is the one with the sense of humour,though I have my moments.! Love your blogs of dogs long gone but never forgotten.I have had 4 dogs over last 20 years..all rescued,and all living to 14 to 17...never forgotten.All had to be put to sleep through illness,and someone said to me how can you stand to be there when they die.? My answer to that was that I was there for them when they needed them all through their lives..how can I not be with them at the end ? The last thing my dogs heard and felt was me telling them I loved them,and though it hurt,I would not have had it any other way.Nice to speak to you Np.....stay the way you do...positive in the face of adversity !

thats realy cool of you nice one rescuing dogs.i should realy but im on a mission to make my own dog.im going to breed my sharpi with a french bulldog .they should be healthier.though i didnt for one minite expect my 14 stone male stburnard to actualy breed with my 4 stone sharpi lol.she had one and a half pound puppies .considering alsation puppies are a pound at birth thats insane.he bread with her because we had a 2 tear garden lol and nature wins through.we thaught it must of bean our little datshund untill they were born.i dont thinki could change if i wanted to realy.id never leave any of my family to die on there own however upset i was.i remember a friends mum had collie like a shelty but bigger i just cant think of the name lol.he was called laddy .he was about 14 and had gone of his legs.she said he needs to go to be put to sleep but she couldnt do it.i was about 20 and full of myself like ya do .i flippantly said.ill do it for you no problem.i thaught i dont know the dog wont be a problem.anyway i carried the dog to the taxi ,leaned in to put him on the seat.as i did so he leaned forward and licked my face.it was all over then i had the biggest lump in my throat and as soon as i had to talk to the vet i started blubbing uncontrolably.i would and have done it again .i dont mind crying its a good release valve
