Neighborhood dog Falcon’s got cancer. He is covered with lumps, is getting good vet care, is dying gradually, and is daily still full of joy and pleasure. His pain is well-managed at this point.It won’t be long, but it’s also not yet.

Every time he sees Gilly,  he frolics up to sniff and kiss and greet – in his barrel-legged, creaking way – a grin splitting his whole head open and filling the entire world with radiating happiness. Every time.

We love him.

We also love Goose, the 14 year old Cairn who runs the village:


Goose is on a new med for his heart murmur and seems to feel five years younger. He’s downright perky.
Both these excellent neighbors ended up in a pastoral about the village dogs a while back.
