A Totally Doggy Post .... well Almost!!


Yesterday I spent most of the day with my Mum and brother Graham.  We met up at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, had a wander around the shops,  drank numerous cups of coffee and had a spot of lunch along with a bit of a catch up .... it's seems us ladies who lunch have taken to dragging along a token male to keep us company this past couple of weeks  :-)


Anyway when I got back, the dogs who had been snoozing the day away ... very sensible with the temperatures we have here at the moment ... were relieved to get out and about in the sunshine and have a good old play around in the paddock.


Running free and letting off steam and just generally tiring themselves out.


Here's Mavis getting her breath back .....


... and grinning at Mum.


Pensive for a moment ....


.., and then back came that happy face.


Suky enjoyed her run around the paddock with the others and then we all went back over to check out the chickens.


You might be mistaken for thinking that doggy walks are just that ... but no most of our doggy walks and play sessions include our feline member of the pack.  


Ginger is always happy to mooch about the paddock with us.  Although this time he kept out of the way while the dogs whizzed round and round, and simply strolled along at his own pace.

A good day in lovely weather, but roll on cooler temperatures I say ... I got bitten to buggery sitting on the grass taking photos of the animals, and last night I had some most unwelcome visitors ... three Daddy Long Legs flying round the living room ... YUK !!

    1. It is ... time to get fresh conkers on the windowsills, I think our last lot are losing their effectiveness :-(

    2. What do conkers do?

    3. Stop spiders from coming in through the windows. Works perfectly. Just one or two on each windowsill. I've posted about it before.

  4. I don't know what crane fly are along with conkers. All I know is we were attacked by some tiny moths that ate my carpet and I am not very happy !
    Good luck keeping them away.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  5. Are my eyes deceiving me? is Mavis without her long lead. I do hope so as it might mean that she has no intention of ever leaving you again. It must be so difficult to know when to take that chance. I do love your animals. Love Andie xxx

    1. I was wondering about Mavis, I guess she is all fenced in ? Good to see her running freely, x

  6. I loathe daddy-long-legs! I read that thye have enough poison to kill a human but....fortunately for us, they can't penetrate the skin. Just as well. Horrible things.! Nice to see the dogs out and about (and the cat!)

  8. I have only had one Daddy Long Legs in the house and truth be told I am glad my youngest son was home to take care of it. Don't know what I would do now as he is moved away and only comes to visit.

    The dogs and Ginger look like they are having a wonderful zip around the paddock.

    God bless.

    God bless.

  9. The pups are absolutely wonderful, Sue! From looking at that lush green grass, I might be rolling and happy, too! ;-D

  10. Lovely "Doggy" post and "Ginger" post. It's so lovely that your animals have all that space to enjoy. The photo's of Mavis are beautiful ... what a sweetheart! I to was wondering why she was not on her long lead - is she still prone to running off? Kind regards, Louise S, Cheshire.
