New car ....

Hi Everybody,

No card post today but I have been busy just the same. Since we have Ruby it is difficult trying to get her into the back of a two door car. And so we decided it was time to change it for one that was a little more dog friendly.

Griff  has been looking for a few weeks now for something to exchange for our Peugeot 307 CC and has eventually found a Ford Focus that fits the bill. Today we have been to Liverpool to collect it and I had to say a fond farewell to my lovely blue convertible. I have had that car for ten years and it was much loved for the excellent service it has given me.

The new car is silver and if it is as good as the other then I will be happy. We took Ruby with us and she settled better in the Ford than she did in the Peugeot. And for being so good all morning we took her on the beach this afternoon and let her off the lead to run free.

She loves it and there was no one else out there but us. It was very cold but Ruby ran up and down the beach chasing her ball .... ears flapping in the wind. She has now run out of steam and is conked out on the sofa having a snooze.

More tomorrow...

Hugs xx

  1. Good afternoon Christina :) Yay You and Yippppeeeee on your new car!!! You should get pretty good gas mileage from that one. Well done. I have my Toyota Echo that is 15 years old. And... it only has 85,000 miles on it. I'm so glad Miss Ruby has given her full approval and that she also had a good run on the beach. Enjoy the rest of your day and wishing you and yours a Happy, Healthy New Year! Big Hugs.

  5. Ruby's comfort is most important and she has had a lovely time today with you. We do have a 4 door but our little one refuses to sit in the back by herself unless it is very hot out. Towels and blankets cover our knees, what we do let her away with.....

  13. Christina- it sounds as if your Ruby has settled into her home nicely! I can understand easier to load your Ruby in an automobile with 4 doors as a 2 door. Glad you found one you liked! Happy New Year to you & yours as well!

  16. Congrats on the new car. I would've loved to have seen some pictures of Miss Ruby running on the beach. :)
    Well, I learned another new word today. Had to look up Hogmanay. As I have a little Scottish in my background..I'll also wish you a happy Hogmanay. The fireworks have already started here and it's only 6 pm.
