Monday 15th August 2016
As it was Monday morning I got Chris to drive me and the dogs over to Upton Heath for our walk, and then to come and collect us again afterwards (just in case Jez decided to leave the heath somewhere other than where I had left the car). It was a lovely sunny morning.
Sadly we didn’t meet any friends to play with today, but the dogs enjoyed themselves at the pond. Jez doesn’t like having her photo taken, and here she keeps a wary eye on me.
She’s still checking out what I’m doing once she’s waded across to the other side of the pond.
Eventually, though, she gets out of the pond and finds other things to distract her.
Max meanwhile just want to play cone. Here we waits at the edge of the pond. What’s great about this photo though is the arc of water, seemingly shooting out of his bottom (although in fact its coming off his wagging tail).
Now you can see why I get drenched throwing things for him in the water. After we’d played at the pond we walked on back to Beechbank Avenue where Chris picked us up. We’d had a very pleasant morning.

We were walking at the top end of Upton Heath. Here’s Jez near Beacon Road.
