We had a couple of weeks of pretty warm weather just after Christmas, so Dad was walking me really early in the morning, and Mum didn’t take me out until late evening, as I got too hot.
I watched with some interest while Dad went to the trouble of patching the bottom of the inflatable paddling pool, as it sprang a small leak last summer. When Dad had finished, Mum heaved it out under the trees in the garden, then she half-filled it with water. Well, despite the fact that I did have a little paddle in it last summer, this year I completely refused to go anywhere near it… I have decided I don’t care much for paddling. Mum left it there for a while but she’s eventually conceded defeat, and she emptied it the other day.
Luckily for all of us, the weather has turned a wee bit cooler, and most days there is a nice cool breeze blowing, as well, so I go zoomies round the garden whenever I feel like it (usually before I go for a walk with Dad in the mornings).
There were some lovely people from Auckland holidaying in the village a few weeks ago. They had brought their two dogs with them, Bijou, the collie, and Flash, who, joy of joys! – was a greyhound! Here are some pictures of our play-date in the garden.
Here I am having a bit of a zoom round the garden this morning before my walk. I had a great time…
Off for my walk with Dad, now. Bye! 🙂
