Whatever next?!

This week on my walks on the south downs I have met numerous dogs and a horse with rider that I ran over to see. I thought the horse might want to play so I danced around behind it for a bit and then jumped up to give it a gentle tug on his tail, just so he knew I was there. The rider and the horse turned round, but then I ran back to C.

Then the next day I was wandering along having a sniff, when the smell of meat hit me. I ran over to where it was coming from and there was a man with a falcon! I have never seen one before, but I must admit I was slightly more interested in the meat!

What will I see tomorrow....?

Champion peg pinger!

I have a new hobby!

Are you is jumping up and pinging the pegs off the washing line. Some of them even fly into next door's garden, priceless!

I also enjoy pinging clothes off the line, but the pegs are more fun. The washing line is pretty high so I am getting very strong leg muscles.

L & C are plotting to not let me on that part of the garden, but until the barricades go up I think I'll carry on....

Beach hut fury!

L & C took me for a wander along the promenade at the beach today. Things were all going smoothly and then it suddenly descended into chaos!

I ran over to meet a huskie dog who was sitting outside it's owners beach hut. The dog jumped up to meet me, but the the owners obviously didn't want us to meet and tried to shoo me away. I then spotted they had some plates of food and trotted round to see what it was and then it all went pear shaped - they ran forward and their dog leapt up at the table and everything went flying. The plates clattered to the floor and the table tipped over.

The man was shouting at me and waving his arms. L came running over to calm the situation and the man and woman both started really shouting at her. They said I was out of control (not true!) and that their lunch was ruined (true, but it was THEIR dog that sent it flying!). Before L could apologise, offer to replace their lunch etc, the woman shouted that she wouldn't accept an apology and so off we went to leave them to it.

While all the shouting was going on I went and sat next to C like a good boy. I am glad I have nice owners....

We then walked further along the beach and I got to have a lovely swim.

Plop and I was in!

We have been making the most of the sunny weather and been to the beach a lot. After a marathon swimming session (I don't seem to be able to catch any of the stones C throws in?!) we wandered around the lagoon on our way back to the car.

I ran over to meet the swans that have recently returned, though they weren't that keen about meeting me. I then thought I would have a little sniff of the swan poo that had collected at the corner of the lagoon. Only I leant over a bit too far and the next thing I knew I was underwater.

When I surfaced I could see from the look on L & C's faces that I must have looked a treat. All I know is the car windows were wound right down on the way home and then I was hosed off!
