We’ve had more wind and rain, so I was really surprised when Jez decided she wanted to come with Max and I for a walk on Upton Heath this afternoon. I was expecting it to rain again, so thought I’d put one her little rain coats on her. She hates wearing a coat though, and usually shuffles along with her nose close to the ground. As we walked onto the heath she clearly wasn’t too happy about having to wear one today, but did look very smart in it.
While we were waiting for Jez to catch up, something had obviously caught Max’s attention.
We turned through the woods and started up the Roman Road, which is a little bit muddy at the moment.
Fortunately, just after I took that we met another dog, and Jez was so pleased to see it she forgot she had her coat on, and seemed to be quite happy in it for the rest of the walk.
Up on the Heath it was looking a bit grey.
And it was another one of those days where I just knew we were going to get wet before the end of our walk.
So today I didn’t walk round the back of the hill but headed straight on home. En route we found a very nice puddle.
Just after that we met Ozzie, the young deerhound, who was looking very dapper in his Christmas bow tie.
And so on down the hill towards home.
And yes, we did get wet.
