Before I get into bed, I always check on Galileo, who sleeps on the carpet on Clive’s side next to Joules.

It’s not that I expect him to be anything other than supremely comfortable.

It’s just that some of his poses are so cute.

Here he’s made himself the perfect little nest in his blanket and is curled up as tight as a snail.

Here he’s on his back, squirming with pleasure at the warmth of Joules’ fur, while Joules himself is out for the count!

Is she her daughter?

Galileo has come home and after a very thorough and joyful tour of every nook and cranny in the house and near part of the garden, has settled down.

He’s on his blanket under my desk at the moment.

He’s been avidly remaking the acquaintance of Joules as these photos show.

They really do look very alike.

Like father like son!

Two generations!

When Joules was small, he had the same sort of resemblance to the older and darker of our two neutered male golden retrievers, with whom he was great friends.

We had a lot of fun out of the innocent but (to us) silly questions inspired by that resemblance.

“Is she her daughter?” was one of them.

Today we received a delivery of wood pellets – a full pallet, 78 sacks – which we hope will see us through the worst of the winter.

Just as well to be ready: there was the first snow on the mountains today.

The dogs immediately took possession of the new lay-out and didn’t seem at all perturbed by the stacks which form a bunker facing inwards towards the stove.

Kepler put in an appearance to see what was going on, then scarpered off again.

His normal place, on the blanket right in front of the stove, is still vacant in the photo but won’t be for long I dare say.
