Walk on Water


Spud the dog.

Walk on water-2-2

Spud has been with us a whole  year, it seems impossible to think that when he arrived he was so small he couldn’t even climb up the door step. My how things have changed.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Happy Birthday Spud! And thank you, Mrs. Uhdd, for a very inspirational blog.

  2. What a great way to look back at him. I hadn’t seen the puppy pictures. He was so sweet! I love that photo of him over the water. You sure got the timing perfect on that one.
    He seems like a wonderful part of your family.

  3. Love your pictures. Thanks for sharing them. Guess you’d have to call this one “Spud spanieling”

    Hope Spud has many happy returns of the day!

  10. One year on and Spud (nearly) has you all trained to his satisfaction. As you know, despite being a little ahead of you guys on the age front, we too are now trained!
