On 5th March, Jonathan and Corinna Downes, the Director and Administrator of the Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] the world's largest mystery animal research organisation, fly to Texas. Together with their friends and colleagues Richie and Naomi West who very generously financed the expedition, they will spend two weeks continuing the research into the Texas blue dogs, first carried out by Jonathan Downes in November 2004..

We made it - and so did our suitcases

As Jon has written, we have arrived safe and well at Naomi and Richie's house - which is absolutely gorgeous. I have also received many kisses and tail wags from Salem and Tiberius, their two dogs, who are equally gorgeous (and I hope will sit still long enough to let me take some photos of them).

It is 10.36pm as I am writing this, but upon looking at my watch - which I have left on London time - I notice that it is 4.36am so I am sure you will forgive me if I don't write anything else 'tonight'.

For now, I will just say goodnight and see you later!

  2. Corrina, as Naomi has probably told you, Salem doesn't take good photos. lol Naomi says Salem isn't the brightest crayon in the box, but I, as Salem's grandmum challenge that opinion. Salem is just different from most other dogs. She might even be a savant in some area. (haven't actually discovered which area yet - I need more time to observe)

  3. ...and I do hope you can get some great photos of Salem and Tiberius.
