A massage then off to the River Stour

Thursday 15th May 2014

The massage was for Jez, you understand. She had an appointment with her physiotherapist, Rachael, in the morning. I’m pleased to say that Rachael was very pleased with Jezebel’s progress, and unless she has any setbacks, her next appointment is in a month’s time.

In the afternoon, as it was a lovely warm, sunny day, Jez, Max and I went for a walk along the River Stour at Cowgrove, where Jez took the opportunity to stand on her favourite tree trunk while Max had a swim.

It was a bit of a day for nature again today. First there was the oak tree in the middle of the field that I like.

Then there was the little rabbit nibbling on the grass in the same field (fortunately the dogs couldn’t get at it).


And then there was this beautiful Cuckoo Flower growing near the farm.

Back at the river the dogs enjoyed the cooling water. First Jez waded out…

… then she waded back.

While Max enjoyed playing with his cone.

And while Max played, Jez waited on the bank. This one is called ‘Where’s Jez?’

Where's Jez?

Ah, there she is: hiding in the grass.

There she is!

While Max was playing in the river two dogs we sometimes meet came along. One of them, Jodie, so wanted to play, but as I couldn’t see her owner I didn’t like to throw a cone for her. Here she is standing in the river looking imploringly at me.


Isn’t she pretty? We eventually caught up with her owner and walked back to the car with them.

A year ago today

We went to Upton Country Park for our walk.
