Since Pippa, my neighbour’s pup, entered my life I’ve changed from being exclusively a cat lover into an occasional dog person. You meet people by meeting dogs. A few days ago I comforted the worried terrier in the top photo, whose master was briefly absent while buying a magazine. So I photographed the dog and the master mistook me for a tourist. Well, there’s nothing like being a tourist in your own town.

As for Pippa, she’s grown. Check out the entry of 15 April, when she was still quite tiny, with the leggy adolescent in the lower photo.
