The Logs of Saga and Folly

A series of internal conversations within the minds of dogs!

In which Saga's thoughts are recorded in Green, whilst Folly's thoughts are in Red.


In which Saga gets rather 'girly' about her hair and has a birthday,
whilst Folly ponders the meaning of Christmas - and wonders what Gordon is going to do to her now
