Whenever winter comes round and I'm stuck indoors I get a real hankering to have a dog again.
I've found a cutie at the local kennels but I fear the long hours I work are against it. 15 hours is a long time to leave a dog on its own, but it would have free run of the house & garden, and I know of dogs that spend all day apart from a daily walk in outdoor kennels and pens, so would life with me be so terrible?

In my own mind there was no drama about it - emotionless.
Still here today though so clealry in my mind the answer was, "yes, someone will miss you."
And there we have a snapshot of a depressivw. No drama,
