Ladybirds, and excited pups

Ladybirds are not a common sight, these days. And yet, there seems to have been a population explosion, locally. I saw these on nettles, along the banks of the stream in our garden. I started counting them, but when I got to one hundred and thirty-three, I realised there were many more to count than I had already. After that, I saw them everywhere. Welcome visitors.

Well, Barley and Quince are now allowed to walk in public. When they first came to us, Quince hated being in the car. She cried, and when we went to the vet, was sick in the car. So, every day, we have been taking a short (half-mile) trip in the car, and having a lovely (little) walk.

They both race Poppy to the car now, and try to jump up. Still a bit small for that, though.

They both love Babur's old bag bed. (There are two pups in there!)

Life is so exciting. Sometimes they just have to stop, because exciting is exhausting!
