Farewell Pythius-Peacocke

Sadly, just days before his next book came out my beloved Border collie Pythius-Peacocke exchanged the views of the Cotswolds that he loved so much for the fields laid out before him in Doggie Heaven.

He will be forever remembered, not just as a faithful companion, but for his many enthusiasms and his ability to bring great joy to all he met.

I doubt there are many dogs who explored more of the Oxfordshire countryside and the Cotswolds than he did and I doubt that I will ever love another creature as much as I loved him.

Farewell Dear Pythius - Farewell


  1. RIP

    We are some of those awful Londoners who come up to the Cotswolds regularly for peace and tranquility
    We've used your blogs for great ideas for walks etc with our lovely black lab who loves it up there more than us

    Checked back today as due up there soon and very sad to hear your news

    Py brought joy into many of our lives and hopefully Barnie will continue to brighten yours and ours

    Please keep up the good work and giving us walks and pubs to check out

    Fantastic, beautiful and poignant picture. My lab wouldn't sit still long enough!!!
