As many viistor know Eriska is a wonderful dogs paradise with lots of walks and trails and wonderful scents and smells to keep even the most active dog out of trouble. No dogs can attest to this more than Dibley and Sula our resident labradors who roam the isand in search of elusive deer, rabbits and otters but generalally enjoy living a dogs life.This week marked a significant milestone however as Dibley - became the truly senior dog- as he celebrated his 11th birthday-77 in dog years- and became to oldest resident labrador dog we have had at Eriska.
He did however mark the day with skill and stealth as he managed to wheeze two birthday cakes and celebrations out of us by neglecting to mention that he had already enjoyed a celebration earlier in the day. However in true labrador fashion he enjoyed both to the full and has already distributed the toys and gifts around the garden with gay abandon. As I write this he is relaxing in the sunshine and preparing for the 8th decade!
