One thing about visiting our friend, when we go out for a drive it is always interesting and to places we would be unlikely to find on our own.
These photos are taken from Blackmoor Reserve, a lead mine site of yesteryear.
The dogs were in their element, Bud especially as he’s a roller as well as a digger, and found some very interesting ‘areas’ in which to do both.
Maggie on the other hand is developing into a plodder, with the occasional ‘whoosh’ moment, then taking two hours to get over it.
Surprisingly, the dogs are of a similar age, though Bud is a rescue dog who was adopted by our friend at 2, and we’ve had Maggie from seven weeks.
Both are good company, loving, loyal, spoilt rotten, and a pain in the butt at times.
Maggie has been in the mood to play this last visit, though rather than chasing each other having fun out in the open fields, she and Bud have been frolicking under our feet indoors.
Still, how can you stay angry at a face like this?
I thought I’d do a piece on a different kind of friendship for my 900th post.
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!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
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.
It is a good thing dogs are so cute- they would be impossible to deal with sometimes otherwise!
