Working Dog – Smudge


Smudge near our pet friendly holiday cottages

There is always one!

Had a great day at our (click here) today. Master and Mistress went off to Chesterfield to get the monthly supplies in so left us on our own. This gave me plenty of time to get in some serious duvet time. Idiot brother of course complained constantly that we hadn’t been taken. Why would we want to go to Chesterfield. Not many fields in Chesterfield. Of course I did keep getting disturbed by idiot brother barking at anyone who walked up the courtyard – doing his security thing!! I think he just likes the sound of his own bark. Anyhow it is very disturbing when you are trying to get to sleep.


getting the cows in at our pet friendly holiday cottagesAs the farmer opposite is away on holiday and only his son is around to do the milking,  I was ‘volunteered’ to round-up the cows and get them into the milking parlour.  I suppose it was a bit of a team effort really as mistress and master came with me. But it was me that did most of the work (well I ran around a lot). Luckily we left idiot brother behind (much to his annoyance).  I hate to think what would have happened if he had tried to round-up cows especially as he is scared of them. Why I don’t know.

They don't always do as they are told

It was all a bit upsetting yesterday. We had a few thunderstorms. I don’t like thunder. Nor does idiot brother. As soon as I heard the first clap I went in search of master (just to make sure he was ok). But he was nowhere to be found. He had gone off down town which surprised me as idiot brother was still around. Usually they go off together. Anyhow in the end I found mistress and decided to keep her company. idiot brother of course went into hiding. In the end we found him in the upstairs bedroom.  We are not allowed upstairs so I just don’t know why he goes up there.
