Just one more sniff, honest!

I’ve said before that her Ladyship likes to smell the flowers on our walks.
It’s a fact of life (and sometimes annoyance) that dogs like to sniff, especially when on the search for that perfect blade of grass to grace one’s delicate backside when making a tickly deposit.

It’s funny, but we walk the Avenue at least twice a day every day (unless we’re away) and yet still she manages to find the long lost greenery that escaped her snozz on the last run, so today she was in her absolute element whilst I froze on the pavement waiting (im)patiently for her sniffing equipment to get into gear, get it done, and get it out of her nostrils system.

The banks along the Avenue are a picture. Spring is here despite the icy blasts of Doris and her kin, and everywhere there are shoots of green and splashes of colour as the brave snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils defy the cold to stand tall and proud.

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.

    Wow! Those spring flowers are early aren’t they? I remember it being March/April before I saw them in Yorkshire – but maybe it’s later up North?
    And yes – I know the “every blade of grass” sniffing routine well, from Mr Spaghetti Legs! Bless. πŸ™‚

  2. One of our dogs would wait until I turned to go back before eliminating. She realized that just

  3. going we turn back and her walk was done. This same dog would manage to get herself tangled up in the brush so while I was untangling the leash she could explore further.
