I’ve wanted a Labrador for as long as I can remember. I even wrote to Jimmy Savile when I was seven asking for one.. Luckily, he never wrote back!

So I thought that it was a good time to get one. I am home most days and get quite lonely. I also needed to get out on my feet more and I thought a friendly dog would be great for this.

I scoured the ad pages online and finally found what looked like the perfect specimen! Finally, a fully grown and fully trained Labrador. I thought that training a new puppy might be a bit too much for me to handle!

So Ella came into my life, with loads of loyalty and fun. Much more to follow..

Great working with this lovely lab today. She’s a retired gundog that has landed herself a perfect family home living by…

Hello! My name is Tom Llewellyn and I’m a former long distance runner. In December 2010, I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis. Several years later in November 2017, I was re-diagnosed with a progressive form of the condition. I now use a walking stick to get around. I write about my journey with the condition of MS – and also of life – documented over the course of several years. Much of the subject matter is about my scars and my healing. Not forgetting Public Enemy and DJing!
