Spud on Sunday Part LIV


Spud  the dog on a frosty and bright morning

Frosty Spud -1

Stop, look, listen; Spud hears Tom’s voice,

Stop look listen -1

there can be no doubting Spud regards Tom as Uphilldowndale pack leader, his masters voice demands attention if not always obedience .

Joe and I tried to get  creative and get Spud to pose behind a sheet of ice from the cattle trough,

spud and ice -1 

it wasn’t totally successful  project, but we had fun trying.


It  didn’t really matter, it was just good for the soul to be out in the sunlight.

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. Cold is entirely bearable so long as there is sunlight and a bouncy dog or two. I must say the grass is very decorative too.

    I believe Spud’s eyes are the exact color of good bourbon.

  2. Cold and bright here, too, but not cold enough to stop Himself moseying off to the golf course. Lovely shots of Spud, as usual.

  3. Oh god yes, entirely agree about the sunlight!

  4. Love how the sunlight brings out the auburn highlights in Spud’s brown coat. I believe that dog has personality he hasn’t even take out of the box yet.

  5. Wonderful expression in the first two photos! xx
