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

Spud on Sunday XXIII


Spud digging, the blur between his hind leg and ball, flying soil (just don’t mention the state of the kitchen floor)

Spud digging-1

the field is littered with ankle twisting craters, as excavated by Spud. We shall return to this topic latter in the week.

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. Is he burying things or digging things up? – or just digging? You may need to train him to replace his divots. . .

  2. Aaaah, Spud, the Indiana Jones of the doggie world. He’s actually searching for the lost remnants of an ancient civilisation, you know. Or he just likes digging holes. You choose.

  3. My little dog likes digging, but only when she sees me doing the same. She likes to help me when I am planting things out, and also when I am pruning. She knows which are the dead bits, that are OK to chew. What a clever pup!

  4. There is a certain Cowboyness to Spud. They bear watching.

  5. Spud seems very intent on his task. Perhaps he’s setting up a game where you stand at one end of the field, roll the red ball, and see which excavated hole it drops into and score points accordingly 😉 I’m sure he has a plan.

  6. I could do with Spud’s help on the plot when I’m digging! xx

  7. The dirtier the dog, the happier.

  8. He’s aerating the soil for you. What a thoughtful pup.
