Spud on Sunday, part XI


Sunday night is bath night

sunday night is bath night-1

In Spuds case that means a quick dip in an old bath, acting as a cattle trough in the field.

Followed by a fast spin

spin dry-1

And a blow dry

Sunday night is bath night 2-1

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. Awesome! He certainly loves life!

  2. Very, very cute. What an adorable doggie.
    Thanks a mil also for subscribing to my blog! 🙂

  3. It looks as though he enjoys bathtime. Our dog hates it. Spud is one sweet dog.

  4. My aunt’s Springer used to make so much fuss when washed under a warm shower head (you’d have thought she was being murdered) but loved being sprayed with cold water from the garden hose!

    It’s so nice to see a dog who’s life is exactly what he wants it to be!

  5. It’s great to see such exuberance! xx

  6. Wow! I wish I could get the Cowboy to do that! I wish we could fill a cattle tank without it freezing solid. I wish I could shake my hair out like that and end up looking half as fetching as Spud. Huh. I’ve used up my three wishes.

  7. Spud is the epitome of ‘joie de vive’!

  8. Good way to recycle a bath.
    Innovative method of hair drying — moving the hair past the air, instead of the air past the hair.

    Too bad you can’t bottle “joie de vivre” — with Spud’s seemingly boundless supply of it, you could make a fortune. . .

    • Spud never has a bad day, it seems to us he is happy, or asleep. Maybe that is where we humans tend to mess up!
      You’d struggle to find more than a handful of cattle troughs in Derbyshire that aren’t old baths. Once upon a time troughs were made from stone, how I covert such a thing, they now sell for 100’s of pound and are in gardens rather than fields.

  9. I love him! Great photos, fun blog.
