It's Meg's sixth birthday today. It doesn't seem like anytime since she came to live with us, in November 2000. How she shattered Tess's peace - I don't think Tess has recovered emotionally!

We didn't plan to have a second pup just as quick as we did, but one of the farm dogs, Gyp, had pups and the farmer offered us one. When we brought her home, she had a little pot belly, which turned out to be the result of a terrible worm burden. After the treatment, she was real skinny and she still is. We're sure there's a bit of whippet in her breeding somewhere. Her sister, Sally, is still at the farm and they don't look alike at all. Unfortunately, Gyp has to be put to sleep last winter - she must have been about thirteen.

Meg wasn't the most attractive pup, especially in "adolescence", but she is a bonny dog now. She's incredibly active and very athletic, but a bit hyper and anxious, which is probably why she's so thin.

She's had some chicken for her birthday tea - she (unknowingly) shared it with Tess, Cassius, Copper and Felix - and she's now flat out, sound asleep under my desk. Little sweetheart...
