ADOPTED !!!!! We just couldn’t be happier. A very, very Happy New Year to you Porthos, you deserve it.

Right, here’s a promise. I’m not going to eat any more chocolate until this lad finds a lovely home. He is just five years old and has lived ALL HIS LIFE at the refuge at Castelsarrasin (near Moissac). A shy little boy who does not deserve not to know a cosy bed in front of a fire and a romp in the garden. His name is Porthos so please, if you are looking for a scruffy looking angel, get on the ‘phone. You may also like to bear in mind that I can get VERY nasty when deprived of chocolate for any length of time !
