Garm of Hounds

Skíðblaðnir best of boats;

Of all the gods is Óðinn the greatest,

And Sleipnir the best of steeds;

Bifröst of bridges, Bragi of skalds,

Hábrók of hawks, and Garm of hounds*

This is our rescue boy, Nathan, a Hound of fine upstanding….He’s been with us since July of last year,2020. He came to us in the Middle of what was a most horrendous Year for everyone… He was a true Gift , I believe, and was sent to help us through.

However I first posted this on my old site , Tales from the Under Gardener’s Lodge, and shared a picture of our much loved and much missed girl, Shea, sat on the doorstep watching the day go by. So I want to share a photo of her too.. She too was a rescue and was ‘given’ to us, we believe, by our Deity, again at a time of great personal loss. She too took us through the darktimes and brought much love and joy. We were blessed to have her.

* from Grimnismol, The Battle of Grimnir, The Poetic Edda, by Henry Adams Bellows, [1936]
