At last, here in the UK, we seem to be in with a chance of little blue sky thinking.
I caught a dandy-lion when I scooped up Spuds ball, in the ball throwing device, that is known to this family as a ‘winger-dinger’, don’t ask why, for I’m not sure we would know the answer! It is a very useful device,if you throw like a girl, and I do. Not that you have to use it much, throw the ball once and Spud runs up and down the field for about 20min before bringing the ball back. It is an easy way to exercise him.
This form of fun will only last as long as the grass is fairly short, and I have to say it is very short for this time of year, we’ve had little rain and it has been cold. Normally, some of the farms would be taking a first cut of silage by now, but the grass is barely up to my boot laces, there’s nothing to cut.
In this area, wise dogs are staying a short lead and keeping a low profile
when out on walks. As (understandably) farmers in the area are taking no prisoners, what, with the likes of this going on.
