Lola’s boyfriend

No, this is not about Lola Ufarte, the badly behaved young lady in El Hoyo that I’ve told you about in my books. However, Lola the Spoodle (or Cockerpoo) is named after Lola Ufarte. I was looking for a name that would suit a golden, very beautiful, naughty dog. A name that would remind me of Spain. “Lola” seemed like the perfect choice.

Lola and I joined the RSPCA Million Paws walk last month, and that’s where she met her boyfriend, Patch. Patch is a Staffie/Cattledog/whoknowswhat mix and it was love at first sight. Now his owner, Jacky, has become my friend, and we meet on the beach for a walk and a natter once a week.

Here are Lola and Patch enjoying the sand, sea and each other.

And afterwards, a nice drink together.

Come and join me on Facebook to see how we cope, day to day.
