My boy REX, the dog!!!

Ok so given some glimpses of our dog Rex , but need to do a post just for him on a quiet homey Sunday. More posts later had worked during the week.

I always had dogs in my single life; and even as I was married back in 1990 with my Frenchie Martine. As we began to have kids, it was difficult to handle both and my previous dog was almost 12 yrs old and became a bit jealous been female and aggressive so my parents kept her until her last days and me went on without a dog for years.

As my boys became older, the need to have a dog grew , but my wife wanted none of it. Finally, we convince her as the boys also wanted a dog. She was very enthusiastic once the decision taken, and was the first one to go and buy him a bed ,and ball toys etc. We are customers of Maxi Zoo store in Séné next to Vannes.

Unfortunately, for us, my Martine could only enjoyed Rex, our borador dog for 19 days before she went into the hospital and finally passed away last April 30th from cancer. We will missed her tremendously, and no words can describe my and the boys pain. However, we have Rex.

Rex is our boy ,and her legacy with us. We love him very much, and he is very active and well behave. I have my three young men to help me out doing everything with me. Rex will go on as a memorial to Martine, and warm and happy moments we had.

As said, Rex is a borador, that is pure mix Border Collier and Labrador taken from a cattle/milk farm nearby here. He is now fully up to date on all his needs with the Clinique Vétérinaire du Chêne in our town.

So, therefore, here are his latest pictures taken around us. For all animal lovers out there.  And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!

My travels in the Morbihan, LXV

So here we are on a Sunday ,not so good coming up. We have no clouds so far, not really knowing where we are going to go. My dear late wife Martine was a catalyst on these things, always ready and suggesting places to go; now it is up to me.

I will continue to tell about daily life in our belle France; leave to others to tell you only the glamour; life is a combination of everything. My daily life here is no different than anywhere else I have lived, and that includes five countries and holding passports from four. We have come a long way and fully understand what is globalization or mondialisation.

I went out last Friday at work and decided while walking to our cafeteria ,which is a full grown restaurant to take a couple shots of the outside. Very nice and very innovative French food inside too as well as the usual burgers and fries lol!

Last Saturday was our errands day with the boys. We did our duties with the bank at Auray, and then went back to Vannes to have lunch in one of our family favorite pizzerias (we love pizzas) this is the chain Tablapizza, good Espagnole chorizo pizza and a great Saumur-Champigny red 2016 Les Chanteraines.

We went for a spin to nearby Electro Depot store of plenty of electronic gadgets and home accessories and we got some earphones, cups:plates, etc .

Continue practically next door to do our groceries at E Leclerc hypermarket, always a treat with so much selection, service, and reasonable prices. We skip the market this week.

We got home and took a tour with our dog Rex, he had his first taste of dog food sausage  on real beef from Germany. Very happy to do so. He is now relaxing , yes as soon as he is in the veranda he is calm once inside the house he does not stop moving high energy borador of 6 months old.

Now we are unwinding our simple Saturday day. I have already been accepted our long summer vacation at work for August. Really, we have so many in mind with little effort missing one member of the family. She always wanted to go to Toulouse from where her father’s family comes from. Then, I was thinking going to the Bordeaux area instead of again to Spain.  We are looking at Lyon area, and Paris of course even if repeated we used to lived in Versailles.  Nothing settled yet it will be a slow last minute thing as usual for us. Then , have some friends telling me will visit from the USA in the next few months ,will see. Lastly, the mother’s side family always gets together in Auvergne area as the stepfather is from there, so will see if we have a family gathering there. Will see.

And this is Sunday. Well, we have storms alerts orange coming to our end and its already by Lorient, in the afternoon it should hit us. As simple rain storms can cause havocs here, we are staying home and resting on memories on this family day in the Morbihan Breton of France. The temps now are 15C it should go to 25C but then 66% chance of rain  anx thunderstorms warnings until midnight. This is for all west coast of France, or about 29 departments. So we are staying dry.

I did cut some bad grass in the garden, and took our Rex out, he is so playful running all over the house patio we have 1000 sq meters or about an acre of land. Cheers

 

Enjoy your Sunday wherever you are. And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
