How important is your Gravatar to your blogging personna?Most of my readers know how much Maggie meant to us and how devastated we were to lose her in November 2020. She had been ‘our baby’ from the age of 7 weeks, and was two months shy of her 16th birthday when she died.
She is my gravatar, always was and always will be. My blog is full of photos and stories about her. There are other dogs in here too and of course Maya is making her own mark.
This is the original photo taken at the front gate of the cottage . She was about 2½ years old.
Hubby worked his magic and added a pen. This was the result.
We still miss her.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

Wonderful photo & gravatar ❤️
❤ A perfect picture that embodies what you are all about!!
I like Maggie looking PENsive
That was the idea.
Awwww, that is so cute, but bittersweet, since Maggie is no longer with you. I’m glad you made her live on by using her picture. And the pen is such a quaint but topical addition.
Thanks. She has always been my gravatar and I have no intention of changing it. She’s too much a part of my life and my blog.
