Don’t worry it’s only Toby taking over again, my mum is still capput from working the past three nights and hasn’t managed to switch off yet so I said that I would put up a post to let people know we’re OK.
It’s been a tough few days, well weeks really with mostly short walks and a distinct lack of having my mum around! When she has been at home she’s been tired, cranky and not in the mood to play no matter how many toys I bring her. She usually accepts me cuddles though bol!
Today though she’s at home! I’m assuming since she’s not gone yet that she’s not working today which means…you guessed it lots of cuddles and play time for me We got ready for our walk a little while ago and I got a lovely surprise when she took a turn down the bridal path that goes past the horses and onto the fields where I can RUN!
My mum got so annoyed at the fact that someone or lots of someones’ have been flytipping down this lane after she fought so hard to get it tidied up that she made me stop so she could take pictures…disgusting isn’t it!
Luckily once we got past the bit of the lane that has houses on one side of it and the stables on the other the rubbish was limited to the odd sweety wrapper and we could settle into our walk though she did keep taking pictures I didn’t have to stop any more
We stopped to have a chat with the horses, mum got a bit upset when she realised that this one had what looked like a muzzle on and it couldn’t eat. I didn’t mind so much because it meant I could say hello to it without worrying about it nipping my nose BOL. Another one came along while we were chatting to it that I wasn’t so keen on though. It was being too friendly with my mum and baring its teeth so I wanted to give it a warning nip…I got told off She knows I wouldn’t really hurt a horse but it was being far too bossy for its big boots.
There were lots and lots of other horses up in that field but once we got out into the big open spaces I wasn’t bothered about them so much and it was time to get my paws moving and investigate!
There were so many sniffs to sniff and so many things to look at I kept leaving my mum behind a little as her legs were struggling but she didn’t mind because I always came back when she called
I didn’t meet any other dogs as we went round and I was a little disappointed until we got back to the pavements where lo and behold there was a friendly little westie behind a gate and a very over excitable white American bulldog outside the shop who I would have loved to play with but…those darn leads get in the way!
All in ball it’s been a woofing great day and now it’s time to go flop on the chair until tea time. My mum is very tired and seems to be saying ‘Ow!’ a lot today…maybe if I bring her another toy she’ll feel better
