It has been a hectic and for Mr Uphilldowndale, an unusual week (not that being hectic is unusual for Mr Uhdd, fast paced and hectic is normal for him, he will be guest posting about his adventure later in the week) Mr Uhdd has been leaving very early in the morning, so Spud has had his morning routine interrupted, no dropping the boys off for the school bus, a walk in the park followed by a visit to the paper shop with Mr Uhdd.
So it has been down to me to exercise Spud along with feeding the hens cats, making packed lunches, boys to the bus etc, etc (you get the idea).
Spud makes it very clear when he feels he is being short changed in the exercise department. He stages a lie-in protest.
You can add a voice over to this image*, it is me saying ‘SPUD, GET UP IV’E GOT TO GO TO WORK NOW!!!!!’ He belly flops in the field and refuse to move, you have to grab him by the collar (obligingly he doesn’t charge off over the fields, one should be grateful for that I suppose) and haul him into the house, its like trying to shift a dead weight.
* sorry, a blown out photo from my phone, but you get the idea?
