100 days – Day 7 (Daisy)
100 days – Day 7
(video of Daisy swimming at Spittal beach – with son Bobby)
Missing Miss Daisy – it’s a week today that, with great sorrow and heart-searching, that I left my oldest dog, Daisy, behind at Tweedmouth where she is now living with my son and daughter-in-law (and Daisy’s son, Bobby)
She has such a tremendous time there – and a boring existence here (especially since my wife, Helen, died – and she was very much Helen’s dog) – that, for her welfare’s sake, she will have a better quality of life in Tweedmouth.
Miss you, Mama Daisy – hope to see you soon!
About meenisterAn ordained Church of Scotland Minister since 1974. Started off in Doune which is near Stirling, before moving to Trinidad for four years; on my return to Scotland, I was a rural minister in Perthshire and then was asked to become Minister at St.Michael's Inveresk where I spent eleven happy years. A short ministry in Guernsey followed and since 1999, I was a full time healthcare Chaplain in the town of Dumfries in SW Scotland, retiring from that post in December 2012. I started this blog on 6 May 2012, soon after my wife, Helen, was diagnosed with secondary cancer - it was a sort of diversion and still is, following her death on 16 June. I hope it shows that there is a lighter side to religion, that it's not gloom and doom and that we can sometimes laugh at ourselves in a self-effacing way. Some posts are, however, I hope provoking and food for thought.
