Sunday 11th – Saturday 17th June 2017
Teddy has settled in very well during his first week with us. The first two nights he slept on the sofa in the living room as he wouldn’t come upstairs. On the Monday he discovered he could do stairs after all and spent a lot of his time running up and down them. After that he slept on a duvet on the floor for one night, and then on my bed thereafter. We have to watch him first thing in the morning though, as if you don’t take him outside quick enough he can’t hold it any longer and wees on the carpet. He hasn’t learnt how to ask to go out yet.
On Teddy’s first full day with us Chris took him for a walk in the morning and then in the afternoon I took him over to Upton Heath. We walked over, as I used to do with Jez and Max when they were younger, and then walked up the Roman Road and out onto the heath. Here is Teddy at the top of the hill.
Looking into the camera.
It was quite breezy, and every now and then as we walked down the hill he’d stop and gaze out across the heath. Well, he is a sight hound after all.
And here’s another one of him.
I’ve not been taking photos every day. But as the temperatures started to rise we took Teddy out early in the morning and then to Delph Woods, where there is lots of shade and water, in the afternoon. This was taken on Wednesday afternoon when it was time for a drink in the stream in Delph Woods.
Another close up.
And one more of him in the woods.
On Thursday afternoon I took the EOS 6D into the garden to get some photos after Chris bought Teddy home from his walk.
And my favourite – Snoozing with his head in the daisies.
On Friday morning it was overcast and I took Teddy down to Lychett Bay. No photos of Teddy from today, although he did have to try out the seaweed, but a couple of the boats down there. As you can see the tide was out.
And I quite liked this photo of a rowing boat.
And lastly, a photo from Friday afternoon which shows just how much Teddy is settling in.
That’s it for this week, but I hope you’re going to enjoy my new adventures with Teddy.
