Dog Shy

our quarry 2I have just walked the dogs round ‘our quarry’ (above) and didn’t see another soul.
The crows were crawking (crowing doesn’t quite describe their call) from the rock face crevices at the disturbance as both mutts were plodding ahead ready to do their business.
Although grey and overcast, it’s a warm pleasant day, and I didn’t need my hat or gloves.

Hubby walked the dogs there yesterday as our friend hasn’t been up to any walks at all, short or otherwise, for over a month. Fluid in one lung is causing him breathlessness at the slightest exertion and we are hoping today that the professionals are going to sort it out as he has been waiting weeks for an appointment. When Hubs got back, he said that he had found some survey markers, so it looks like the proposed holiday complex is ‘a go’. Damn!!

Maggie has always been a little particular where she poos, (she prefers grass) but today she was obviously embarrassed being in male company and wanted to ‘be alone’ for the deed.
greta garboShe ended up hiding behind a clutch of grassy reeds growing in the centre of a mossy patch on the tarmac, all the while keeping a watchful eye out for ‘him’ should he come too close. Dogs are so funny sometimes!
hup 1I still hold third position in the car stakes, but at least today I was in the driver’s seat of our friend’s car.  The end result is I am enjoying a cup of coffee and two contented dogs are snoozing away, one on the floor, the other in a chair. No prizes for guessing who is where.

Hubby has rung to say our friend has had his lung drained and is due for a CT scan later this afternoon so he is staying with him. No point in coming back only to return and collect him in a couple of hours. Besides, they’ve found the bacon butty stall!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I think that “crawking”, being a mix of squawking and crowing, is a perfect representation of the sound that crows can make! Suggest it to Oxford English Dictionary people! 🙂
