Sunday 27th April 2014
It was another day for dodging the showers today. In the morning I baked bread, listened to music and played around on the laptop. In the afternoon I took both Jez and Max to Canford Heath for our walk. Although the sun was out at home, the skies were pretty dark as we drove over to the heath. And those grey skies stayed with us for the whole of our walk.
Jez was quite bright again, and although she walks very awkwardly, she seemed to cope very well throughout. This photo makes me laugh. It sums my two dogs up – both looking in different directions. I’m sure if they could sit with their backs turned to each other all the time they would.
And one last photo from today’s walk – a silver birch tree reflected nicely in Max’s favourite water-filled gully. Those little ripples on the water were made by him, by the way.
In the evening we had a bit of an embarrassing incident. Chris had just got home with Max having taken him for his evening walk. I heard barking out the front and Jez got very excited. Then I heard the most awful yelping/wailing noise that just went on and on. It sounded like a very bad dog fight, and I rushed out thinking another dog had attacked Max. Even the neighbours came to look. But no. Max had barked when he spotted next door’s cat on their front step. Then the cat got up and wandered off and Max went nuts – running away and making that noise. It wasn’t as though they had even come within 3 feet of each other. I really don’t know what gets into that dog at times.
A year ago today
I took this nice photo of Max in the woods at Creekmoor Ponds.
