Well, it’s finally here, and we’ve only just remembered! Yes the Shortest Day. Summer time begins tomorrow with the days getting longer – yippee!
She took us for a walk. Gus chose his favourite walk, as he would. It’s NOT mine. I get attacked by all the twigs and ITS NOT FUN!
Gus also got told off (hoooray!) He found a nice stick and began to eat it. She caught him at it and he looked forlorn. He should be more careful next time and hide it more carefully in his straggly beard. Bob got his bottom very wet as he tried to get across the very sodden stepping stones. He’s so manic, if he slowed down he’d manage it properly, but no, not our, he tacks and yaws across the pathways at 100 miles per hour at the very minimum, and does just the same trying to get across the stepping stones.
Saw some wildlife: Greater Spotted Woodpecker, lots of tiny Long Tailed Tits (one of Her’s favourites), umpteen crows, several Magpies. The ground was very boggy ‘cos it was 11 degrees – can you believe it. This time last year we were under about 3 foot of snow and about minus 1 degree – brrrrrr! But today, The Shortest Day, it was like summer! Had to have our half-baths though ‘cos we were a little muddy – only a little though. I stole Gus’s towel before he was taken out of the bath and got a right telling off!
I’ve heard Her say we’re gonna get a Christmas Trim – well isn’t She a little late, what with Summer starting tomorrow, tee! hee! We’ll do something to distract Her ‘cos you know we guys are “Scotties Against Grooming” – we ain’t gonna let that little campaign go away. No doubt there’ll be a post before the end of the week with photos – yuk!
Got some photos for y’all, so have a yap, woof and arooodle at us on our walk today!
