The Gallery: Pets

Monty is our 9 year old Black Labrador.  

He doesn't live with us any more, he lives with my in-laws.  He lives with my in-laws because after I went back to work 2 years ago we found we had less and less time to spend with him and it just wasn't fair.  They are retired and we just felt that as much as we were going to miss him it was the right thing to do for him.  They don't live near us so our visits are infrequent, however we speak to them at least 3 times a week and they always give us the lowdown as to what he's been up to.  I would never ever have given him up to anyone but them - I would have rather give up work first - I am just fortunate they loved him as much as we did and were willing to have him stay with them.

A few months ago he came back for to stay with us for 2 weeks whilst they went on holiday, the kids were overjoyed to spend some time with him, but the 5am starts to get him walked were a bit of a shock to my system.  

We all miss him when he's not with us but we know he's being well looked after, although if I ever win the lottery and can ever give up work he'll be on the first train home!
