The Sniff is On

Maggie may be losing her hearing and her vision not as good as it was, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with her sniffer.
On our walk this morning, practically every blade of grass got the benefit of her snozz, so a ten minute walk took thirty.
She’s obviously picking up the scent of the foxes so we’ll have to be careful, but what amuses me is that it seems she sniffs out the exact same patch of grass to wee on as she did the previous day/night/walk.

I remember when MOH had his springer spaniel the girls had a peeing contest (which is not the same as the guys having a p1 5 5 1ng contest).
Jen would find a spot and squat, then Maggie would inspect it and squat over it. Jen would get the hump and squat again, and then so would Maggie. This often resulted in some poor blade of grass getting absolutely saturated in dog pee.
And I bet you never saw buttercups as Nature’s umbrellas!

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.

  1. Maggie is sending message to the foxes and I not be surprised if she was getting a message back. Kato did it once with Fox vixen.
