People have been asking me how’s Robin and how’s he’s been coping since Kingsley’s passing. Honestly.. i don’t think that he noticed much.
For us, he has been more calmer in the house. It used to be when Kingsley was around, he’d be forever walking up to him, sniffing him.. wanting to smell him.. and Kingsley didn’t like that of course.. and would growl and show his teeth at Robin. And not being able to sniff Kingsley, made Robin really hyper and nervous. So.. and now that Kingsley not around… There’s no other dog for Robin to obsesses over.
But.. there is this border collie, called Timo in the neighbourhood.. and we met him twice. He is also a stand offish bc.. and when Robin went to sniff him, he showed Robin his tiger face… and when Timo walked away.. Robin stood for at least 5 mins staring after him.. and wanting to go and sniff and obsesses over Timo. Just like what he did with Kingsley.. and not once.. but twice. When that happened the first time.. H asked if it was Kingsley re-incarnated. But .. i said.. no.. cos it’d have been too soon.
The weather is reflective of my moods.. grey, dark and rainy. It had been difficult to get out of bed.. and Robin isn’t much for walks in the cold, wet weather either.
Here’s him looking angry after i dragged him out for his walk.
When he so preferred to be lying in his warm bed.
But when the days are dry. autumns are really nice here.
Going for walks in the woods …
And.. along the river..
And so..winter is approaching…
