Ashley And Laurie’s Link Up

Welcome back to Ashley And Laurie’s Link Up

A huge thank you to all that linked up last week! It’s growing fast and it’s good to see you all. My week has not been so easy this week, I’m very behind and trying hard to keep to a schedule. I haven’t even visited my regular blogs that I love to read I will explain more about that in a minute.

On the blog this week

Just in case you missed it, I featured this lovely showerproof coat from Bonmarche – Here I also came away with a huge wish list when I attended the MandCo press event –  here

And I’ve even been Christmas wrapping early! You can read about that – Here That’s not the only reason that I’ve got so behind this week though!

Meet Peggle

One of my dogs has been severely ill.(you may have seen it on my Instagram stories) I thought I was going to lose her twice the past two weeks. She was actually bitten by a rat right in her armpit. Well, that’s what the vet is telling me and I can’t think what else it could be. It swelled so much with an infection that she is finding it very hard to walk and is on loads of meds for it including Morphine.

Peggle the mastiff

Peggle is a Mastiff cross American Bulldog.All seven stone of her! Perfect for a petite like me! She is actually the most Gentle giant dog I have ever had. She has shown a slight improvement thank god and fingers crossed.

So eventually I will catch up with you all! Now let me present last weeks top reads

    I’m so so sad for you Laurie – Peggle looks like she was an amazing dog and having a mastiff cross myself I know how full of character they are!! Our dogs leave a huge void when they go yet plenty of unconditional loving memories that will stay in our hearts forever. Sending you lots of hugs.💕 Xxx
