Wednesday and Thursday things

Two posts in one here.    Wednesday the first full day with the pack, working out not bad, apart from a couple of days back along it’s been many years since I’ve had to cope with so many dogs at once, but they’re good and well behaved in the whole. I’ve put a bell on Strudel as she is inclined to want to go bunny hunting, though she doesn’t go very far at least I can hear her. Feeding time can be quite a juggling match as they are on different foods and quantities, with Strudel having medication.
I had my Art group in the afternoon so left them home as I didn't want to leave four dogs in the car for too long, they were good as gold and just slept [I think]
The weather so far has held up. fingers crossed.
Thursday … Went to pick up Barney, so now with FIVE dogs in tow we went to a large park near his place as they forecast rain, I gave them two circuits of the field and went shopping, The rain still hadn’t materialized before we got all the way home, so I stopped off at our usual walk and gave them another half hour. It worked well as they’d had enough exercise to allow me to sit here and catch up, aren't they considerate??
We’ve just had our afternoon tea and biscuits, so I'll finish this off and go for our pm walk, Barney will be getting picked up at around 6pm. The rain started around  lunch time but is easing, and the forecast is for warmer drier weather for the weekend YES!!!!! If so,  I may still be sane by this time next week.
Cavantina has just come on the radio and it brought tears to my eyes as it’s the second time they have played it in the past couple of days, Iris Williams sang it the day before yesterday. ‘He was beautiful’ is the opening line, and it was a song that I associated with my Jet, as it just summed him up, such a coincidence it should be played now on the anniversary or his death eight years ago. Oh well dry my tears and tend to the living, and tuck my darling boy’s memory back where it belongs, in the special place in my heart.
Bye for now folks, I hope I’ve kept you entertained for a short time.

    1. Fortunately they are all trained, Sue was a pupil of mine and has turned out to be a pretty good dog handler, it makes it so much easier, thankfully.:-)
