Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Spud on Sunday XVI


Spud is unavailable for comment this evening, he is at the kennels. He seemed very happy to be left there after all it’s where he was born and he has lots of friends and relations there.

Joe and Spud-1

We’ve been away for a couple of days, we’ve missed Spud a lot; he would have had a fantastic time if he’d been allowed to join us.

Now we are back home, but it is too late to go and get him from the kennels, the house doesn’t seem right without him.

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. That’s the perfect photo for a caption competition! xx

  2. The Cowboy is scandalized. Miss Sadie is a wiser sort.

  3. You’re lucky. It takes an Act of Congress and heavy gloves to get the white one in the crate without getting bitten. Tell him we missed him.

  4. It must have been strange to have been Spudless! Cute photo, and hope you had a good few days away 🙂 Spud will be happy to be back amongst you, just as you’ll be happy to have him back home.

  5. I know the feeling… and the joy of having one’s pet back home. His excitement and running all over the house. Lovely picture !

  6. I haven’t had to be away from Rani for even one night so far, but I know I would miss her a lot. ‘Daddy’ was away for 10 days recently, and it clearly made her feel anxious. She pooed in the house every day for the first four days he was gone.

  7. The first year we had our cat, we put her in the cattery while we went on holiday, but she pined, didn’t eat properly and was a skinny bundle of misery when we picked her up. Since then, I’ve arranged for neighbours to keep an eye on her. As it is, she goes in the huff when the suitcases come out of the loft!

    Lovely picture – my caption would be, “Puppy baffled by headless human”.
