Summer is arriving – Smudge

Lunch

Lunch!

It must be summer time as we seem to be allowed outside more, the cows are in our front field (much to the annoyance of idiot brother) we had our annual haircut (bad experience as usual) and we are getting taken for more walks. The cows are a bit of a problem at the moment as idiot brother is becoming more paranoid about ‘cows’. I am not sure why but wherever we go he is constantly on the look out for them. Sometimes he just stops and won’t move. I assume he thinks there is a cow around somewhere. Well of course there is we are in the countryside so what can you expect. Just stare at them and if that doesn’t fail woof. They always get the message and get out of the way in the end. But oh no the idiot has to slink around as though they were about to eat him – Idiot!

Me at Minninglow

We went for a nice walk this week. Mistress has wanted to go there for ages as you can see it from our front field. It is a very distinct set of trees on the horizon called Minninglow. Over the years we have managed to train master to bring along some lunch for us so we all sat down near the trees for lunch. The only problem with our lunch is it’s too small. I am sure my lunch is far smaller than idiot brothers and everyone else’s because I always finish mine a long time before anyone else. Well I suppose it is the thought that counts – its certainly not the amount. Anyhow mistress was happy to get to see the trees and be able to look back and see our house and cottages .

Don't mess with me!

Did you hear about the mess the cows have made of our front lawn. Mistress didn’t shut the gate to the field properly so about 20 cows decided they would come into the garden to explore. Now of course if I had been out I would have stopped them but I was having my afternoon siesta (a dog can’t be on duty all the time). But as it was they rampaged around our lawn for a bit before master, mistress and myself got them out and back into their field. Idiot brother was of course nowhere to be seen. Maybe it is the fact of having cows in our garden that has spooked him. He is quite brave when he is behind our garden fence but now he knows they can come into our lawn he is a bit pensive. Anyhow master seems to have filled all the holes in with sand and we are are all hoping the grass will grow back. It does look a bit of a mess at the moment.
