Readers Write and Brett's Monthly

From Enid C:
Dear Otto,

This morning Philip sat at the table and I heard a laugh and “Oh Otto!”

Now he is reading out selected funnies happily having sent the Springer photo to the kids in UK as they have an adored springer called Poppy who usually goes on holidays with them. For example this weekend they are off to Hever Castle in Kent for active weekend of triathlon stuff ... and Poppy goes too.

Thank you, I don’t know how you find the time in your busy life.

Thank you, Enid.

For those who came in late . . .

These are English Springer Spaniels . . . .

. . . this is the Springer photo to which Enid is referring . . .

. . . and this is an American Springer . . .


From Byter Tobye P in the U S of A . . .

Enjoy the weekend!
Regards, Tobye
Thanks, Tobye.

From Rosie J in response to the pics from Ethic Homes & Gardens:
“There’s not a member of my family who doesn’t have the Croatian coffee cups!!! You’re just not a real Croatian without them.”
Thanks, Rosie.

The cups Rosie is referring to are:
