My daughter, granddog, Ollie dog and I met this lovely young hound on the way to the Top Field under grey skies in the rain. Ollie was so excited to see him that she let out a couple of little barks. His Eastern European mistress crossed the road so that the dogs could greet one another. She told us that his name is Grey. We found that quite amusing as people here don't usually name their pets after colours. It reminded me of Rabbi Lionel Blue. He was born in London’s East End on February 6 1930, in a family of Russian Jewish descent. The family name, originally Blustein, had been shortened under the impression that, like Green or Black, Blue was a common surname. 

I love the two pink spots on Grey's black nose.
