as you know recently ive been taking care of my sisters two dogs. ive grown attached to their scrumptious-ness. ive been thinking for a couple of years now about getting a dog. then i always think of a reason not to have one, vets bills, holidays, ( havent been away for a long time!)responsibilities. i thought stop, you always do this, look on the negative side of things. so maybe, just maybe, i will be owning a little puppy next may. my sister is going to have pups with little rosie. so archie (below) may have a little brother to play with when he comes round.
that got me thinking of names. i would prefer a boy dog. after running through a host of names, including minty, rex, etc, i liked noah. how do people with kids choose their names i really dont know. its such a difficult decision to lumber a child with one name for life. anyway, i started to look out for little reasons, or coincidences to call him the name i choose. sitting in the car a couple of days ago whilst waiting for some tea, a grey van man pulled out of a turning his first three letters on his number plate were, NOA. then reading the newspaper i find out that neil diamonds real name is yes you guessed it NOAH ...........( cant remember his surname). mum had to pop to the accountants this morning and it was in (nope not noah), ARK house, by this time im thinking mmmmmmmm. then once the office stuff had been done we went for tea, by this time i was exhausted from yesterday and wanting to go home, but we parked by the woods and sat. im taking my camera out regularly now so it was in the door handle. when a man popped out of the woods with a clip board. i couldnt believe my eyes. i said to my mum 'its bloody NOAH'. we both burst out laughing, i had to take a picture to show my sister,(its a bit of a running joke). what he must of thought i dont know. i pretended to take pictures of trees, wildlife, when i caught him in the woods.
