Veggies can wait!

This blog is supposed to be about growing veggies, but I know you will forgive a little indulgence. Leo was a stray! someone left him on the streets of London and didn't bother to look for him. Aside from a little arthritis in his joints he is still full of life! Like all Labradors, Leo loves his food - so getting him to eat his veggies will not be a problem!

Matron, we will more than forgive a little indulgence - you might have a riot on your hands if Leo doesn't get plenty of blog coverage.

Imagine letting your dog go after 11 years and not being bothered, I can't understand it. Is he another Battersea dog, Matron? Keep the piccies coming.

Hope he doesn't eat YOUR veggies too, like Buddy did. Look at those eyes.

Dear Matron, what a wise decision to adopt Leo, he is so cute and sweet and gentle and handsome. How anyone could leave such a wonderful dog wandering the streets is beyond me. So glad he found you & you him.

I wish you both lots of joy in your life together.

PS Tara's thinks Leo is awful cute and she would really love to play with him.

Hi Matron, I'm sure Leo will be a good garden helper so I think that entitles him to star in you blog. I for one hope we get to see lots of him.
