The Dark Art of Worktop Surfing

We’ve learned there’s a name for Dusty’s foraging in our kitchen. It’s called the dark art of worktop surfing!

Apparently it is practised extensively (but not exclusively) by greyhounds, whippets and lurchers, whose long legs make it ideal for them to reach the worktop and shuffle round on their hind legs, hoovering up any carelessly placed morsels, or as in Dusty’s case, spring right up onto the top. 194 more words

The Lamb Thief

Dusty has stolen a lamb!

A dead one, luckily. Or more accurately a cooked one.

We have guests for dinner and have been cooking roast lamb with all the trimmings. 314 more words

Doggy Days

It’s been a brilliant weekend for the dogs. Lots of wonderful walks in the woods amongst the autumn leaves and beside the lake, all after a few dozen laps of our field as the whippets race neck and neck, and Richie pants along behind trying to keep up. 96 more words

Sheringham parkrun

This weekend I’ve been at my parents’ place in North Norfolk.

In the week, I emailed my mum and suggested that I’d quite like to go to a parkrun on Saturday morning. 392 more words

Running

Jaff-in-the-box

Our Lion King is not feeling so intrepid today.

Inside the house the cats have been quite at ease sharing the space with three dogs. So far, Richie has been a perfect house guest, polite and respectful of the other inhabitants.  271 more words
