Charlie loves Lucy, he does.
He has up until now been a loyal and constant companion for over nine years but since Lucy has become a regular visitor, Charlie has been seen sidling up to her whilst at the same time giving me guilty looks. He does make a good pretence of still loving me whole heartedly, and at the start of the evening there is the warmth of a woolly Golden Retriever to keep my toes warm on a cold night. However if Lucy should happen to call by, slowly my feet start to feel the cold as a Golden Retriever half inches his way on his belly towards where Lucy is sitting, whilst at the same time looking deeply into her eyes with a really soppy look on his face.
It makes us all giggle, he’s got it bad.
