Here are some of mine:
Warmth at night.
Exercise is cheaper than joining a gym.
Something to care for.
You’re probably curious about number 8.
Last night we were watching Ironclad (James Purefoy) when Maggie suddenly sat upright to attention and looked around. She didn’t growl or bark, and we hadn’t heard anything, but within fifteen minutes, the rain started and it’s still going.
We always knew she could sense thunder (a lot of dogs do), but the rain thing is new and has happened on several occasions now.
We’re being blown about quite a bit, though Storm Henry has gone and there is no mention that what is hitting us at the moment has a name.
Her ladyship has plonked herself in the corner of the bench so she has easy access to our feet in case she wants a reassuring ‘snuggle’ as she hates the wind.
We have a theory that she can hear it whistling through the rigging on some of the other boats nearby, but because she cannot isolate where the noise is coming from, it unnerves her.
It’s going to be a long day as this bad weather is here for the duration if the radar picture is anything to go by.
