The Further Adventures of Spud the Dog 10th February 2013


Poor spud the dog has been upstaged by his feline friends this week. Spud can’t really see what all the fuss is about  with snow,

It’s tricky these days to take a turn around the field  without the company of the cats, whether Spud and I like it or not.

The kitten-cats however are less keen to get their paws to deep in the stuff. They prefer to tiptoe along the wall wherever possible.

They only came down to play when I pulled the mono-pod out of the bag, then quite frankly they were a pain, the idea is it helps steady the camera, not when it has two cats trying to run up and down it, doesn’t.

It is quite frankly enough to drive you up the pole.

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. Dogs being upstaged by cats is simply the natural order of things!

    • Quite so, and humans clearly have a misunderstanding of the true purpose of a monopod. Our human has one that looks very similar and he took the enticing foot thing off his – stupid man!

  2. Bing is learning where he stands in the Nesbitt household…….one step below Ella the cat! Yet one step above both original german shepherds!

  3. Spud’s curled lip says it all 😉

  4. Lovely pictures. I guess that you’re all trying to up-stage each other with the cats definitely winning this time. xx

  5. A brave kitten cat, balancing on a pole above a strand of barbed wire.

  6. They all look picturesque with the snowy backdrop! Happy Valentine’s Day!
