I didn’t go for a walk yesterday as in the morning I had to take Jez to the vet for a heart scan. I’m pleased to say this went well. There is a slight deterioration in her condition, but apparently nothing to worry about, and she doesn’t have to go back until the New Year.
This morning it was a lovely, bright sunny morning and so I thought I would take the dogs down to the Baiter (Poole Harbour) for a change. We haven’t been there for ages. Jez hadn’t wanted to go for a walk after her scan yesterday, but when we got to the Baiter today she was very excited and spent most of her time trying to run around as best she can.
It was certainly a lovely morning down there.
The dogs were soon in the sea. Here’s Jez (notice the spray in the foreground of the photo from Max’s tail).
And they weren’t the only ones.
Max, of course, just wanted me to throw his cone.
You can start to see how weak his back legs are getting in that photo.
I thought we would walk along the beach, but Jez had other ideas and went back up onto the grass. There her attention was soon caught my a man flying a model plane.
She had to go over and investigate and the man was very good and let her sniff it. But she soon decided it wasn’t that interesting so we started to walk back towards the beach, chatting to other dog owners on the way. And while I talked Jez had a rest from all her running about.
We made our way back to the beach by the slipway where Max was waiting for us, having lost his ball. There was lots of activity around the slipway.
And after a while the two jet skis were off.
We had one last paddle there before we walked back to the car. And here is Jez in the water demonstrated that you don’t have to go to the Mediterranean to feel that you are there.
Just come to Poole on a nice day.
A year ago today
It was a nice sunny day for a walk in Wareham Forest.
