In the past few weeks I’ve focussed on dogs on Instagram. I’ve witnessed much dog life: the drama of dogs lost – and thankfully, dogs found -, dogs in shelters tugging heartstrings, sick dogs, cute pups, dogs wrapped in tinsel, dogs wearing stetsons(!), dogs sleeping (many dogs sleeping), dog-lovers sharing stories, all heartfelt, some tear-jerking, some absolutely hilarious… this has been the shape of my Instagram feed over Christmas. I’ve dipped in and out – at times I’ve been glued – and yes, I’ve added to the hubub with photos of Ted. It’s been a valuable diversion. Worlds within dog world. If you ever need a moment to step away, I can recommend it.
