Woody’s Happy Ending

A big Hi and a wet lick from my new home in Dublin. Like many the Corkonian before me, I don’t think I’ll be back except for the holidays. I’m sending some photos from my new life on the East coast.

I love the beach and bring a good bit of it back every day from the walk I take Clare on. I’m big into beachcombing and star fish are my new favourite chew toy! I’ve always liked a bit of sea food and so I also dig for clams, and I find the odd shoe and other great smelling things on the strand.
When the tide is in, we go to the Park and that’s OK too as I’m a sociable guy and like to meet the locals. I’ve met a super little spaniel called Coco who is so sweet she makes me wish I wasn’t neutered….
The other thing we do here now that it’s summer is we get a coffee on the pavement and watch the world go by. My Mum was a Tibetian Llhasa Apso and so I have a very Zen side to me. I like to stop and smell the coffee, and take it all in and the cafe is a good spot for this. It also gives everyone a chance to admire me, and let’s face it, I’m pretty cute (whatever that is).
Though I look like a teddy bear, I’m no toy or even toy boy and I go to work with Clare every day. Apparently it has to be done to keep us in kibble, so I buckle down to it. Between you and me, I’ve no idea what we’re doing but I’m in a Supervisory capacity so I just have to turn up and keep an eye on herself while she is working, she’s self-employed and someone has to keep an eye on her. .
I offer plenty encouragement and when I doze off I do it by the door so she can’t duck off. I’ve got a big future ahead of me in the world of work.
So though I miss you all in Cork I think I’ll have to stay now that I’ve adopted Clare. Though she lives here she is a thoroughbred with loads of family and friends in Cork and we visit. The welcome I get,I feel like Justin Bieber when I visit Macroom and they don’t even mind when I pee on the carpet.
Special big lick to my foster pals and Helen. She sent me off with plenty good advise and saw to it that I had a crate and a kong, cause herself hadn’t a clue. And then Jane doing all that boring old admin….I feel for you now Jane since I joined the workforce myself.
Three woofs for you and all your good work.
Woody.
