Well, it is not the best time of year to be in the
"great outdoors"and I am covered head to foot in waterproofs, but spending my time with such a wonderful set of dogs as makes it all worthwhile.
This last week I have a new friend called Hans, a fantastic natured
dog who can cover the ground like Usain Bolt when chasing a ball
over at Bradlaugh Fields!
Missy, one of my regulars, a 13 year old Collie, who looks so good for her age she could teach Helen Mirren a trick or two, does her best to keep up, but does not quite make it to the ball ahead of Hans, despite her best efforts, so gets extra fuss to compensate!
Marley is another new regular who was one of our house guests this
weekend; a gorgeous black cocker spaniel who is so affectionate and loving that he melts your heart in a matter of seconds.
So yes,the rain is relentless, petrol prices are soaring; the papers are full of gloom and doom (and Katie Price) and there is a constant load of muddy dog towels in the washing machine, but life is good.....
