Had a very busy weekend with Smudge's pups being viewed & Bayley leaving us. Sunday evening though we finally got to sit with the children to watch "War Horse" which has just come out on DVD. We did forefeit a Roast Lamb dinner to watch this to.
Many may of enjoyed this film but I have to say I was very disappointed in it. Having read the book a couple years ago, coming from Devon, a background of my forefathers working horses & myself being around horses, riding almost before I could walk & my oldest son being a World War 1 aficionado it was going to have to be pretty good for such critical eyes. My son was disappointed to !
The book to me is far more emotionally evocative than this film. The only book I have read then gone on to enjoy the film is "Lord of the Rings" but the book is still better than the film because imagination should always have better special effects than any studio can do. Rant over !
Having a none puppy night tonight (all the pups are well) & instead a juvenile delinquent night with most of the photo's featuring the usual suspects Toby, Jessica & Belle.
I must of been slightly mad just after Christmas when having Belle 8 weeks old to then go & aquire two more pups in the form of Toby & Jessica. Having one pup in the home is fun, two is interesting but rearing three all around the same age is a receipe for a lot of collateral damage to your home & sanity at times but if you can put up with the chewed chairs, the mud clats in the water bowl & decimation to your flower beds, the fun of watching these clowns will far out weigh the times you pull your hair out.
Its been an interesting 5 months with these three & I have still got a few hairs left on my head but I have got a few more laughter lines on my face !
