The Many Expressions of our dog, Ziggy.

owning an english mastiff

It’s 2am and I can’t sleep. Yesterday – well day before yesterday I suppose – morning our beloved dog Ziggy died suddenly of a heart attack while he was happily running up the hill towards us. To help me deal with the grief, I have just written this…

 

The happy, but slightly demanding look on his face when he’d sit, pushing his back to you with his head in the air wanting a fuss.

The child-like guilty expression when I’ve come home unexpectedly and caught him lying on my side of the settee.

The daft, but annoying grin he had when he got over-excited about MacDonalds.

The absolute love and adoration in his eyes with his cuddles with Chris.

The funny sideways, but not-quite-looking-at-you looks he’d do when he was watching what you were up to – if he was suspicious you were going out or going to the kitchen to get chocolate.

The way he’s prick his ears up and look interested and curious when he wanted to play with the cats, but wasn’t sure how to.

The smug looks he gave me when I’d told him not to do something, but Chris had given in – usually getting on the settee when he smelled.

The puzzled, but disgusted looks he’d turn round and give his bum when he’s done a particularly potent fart that had disturbed him.

His generally happy, and very handsome expression he’d have most of the time – especially when he had his family all together.

3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
The Story Behind the Photographs – Morvah mine
October 8, 2016
Chris and I took two days off work before the bank holiday weekend, and drove the camper-van down to Cornwall. We had three nights and four days away altogether and in that time we saw Jeremy Loops play at Perranporth; met up with family; took several photos for Oshun and for the blog (such as the one at the top of this page); relaxed a bit, and even found time to take some photos just for the fun of it. The great thing about wild camping is that you can wake up right next to the most wonderful wild places, including this ruined tin mine. One of my favourite photos from the day I chose to have blown up and printed onto canvas for our living room. It was a beautiful morning and the pathway towards the sea was just magical….
The Glastonbury Festival sign
A sneak peek at Glastonbury Festival 2017 a week before the fun starts!
June 16, 2017
This is mainly a photography post as there isn’t a great deal to say about it really! I had the opportunity to have a walk around the Glastonbury Festival site last night, so of course I took my camera with me! I also vlogged it, so when I’ve had chance to edit the footage, I’ll add that too. I’m pleased to report that the ground underfoot is very firm and the grass very green. It amazes me how much there is still to do in the next six days, but so much has happened in the last week, I’m sure they’ll manage it!….
