We had a beautiful walk this morning. It was very cold, frosty and fairly foggy, until the sun started to break through. One the sun made a slight appearance, the lighting was perfect and mum’s phone camera was at the ready (of course!).
We took the balls with us too, which Archie particularly enjoyed. I preferred to waddle along, taking in all the fresh new smells around this morning.
This is me posing. Mum was standing in front holding a treat, which is why I was so obliging. Just wish she didn’t take so long though – crikey, its cold on one’s bottom when it’s frosty!
This is Archie posing. He didn’t need a treat holding in front of him – the ball was enough of an enticement!
We did enjoy ourselves so much. Papa (in the background) had lots of fun too, although he didn’t move around as much as we did….haha! Mum called him lazy!!
We’ve certainly had our fair share of rain, cold, more rain, more cold, even more rain and even more cold recently! Roll on some lovely sunny weather….please!
During one lunchtime walkies this week, the boys (and me) got rather wet. We came back to the shop, and none of us could get warm – despite the heater being on. This called for drastic action – work fleeces for everyone!
The boys snuggled up together, proudly modelling their new work wear. Does this mean they are now ‘proper’ members of staff, which means wages and more treats!
We have had so much rain recently, it’s meant extra dirty dogs, filthy towels, disgusting floors and revolting sofa throws……which in turn has meant lots of washing, lots of drying, lots of bathing and lots of trying to get the boys dry! Nightmare!
Also, as every dog owner knows, a wet dog leads to a slightly stinky dog or a very stinky dog (doubly so if you have two!). There are only so many candles and air fresheners you can use to try and mask THAT smell! So, it was at this point I decided it was time for the dreaded doggie hairdresser!
Off we trot to Leeds, to see my lovely friend Kath – a very experienced groomer, who kindly takes the boys off my hands for a few hours while I enjoy a dog aroma free morning somewhere! They are then handed back to me smelling like babies and looking wonderful!
You wouldn’t believe these are the same pair of Cockers! Now we can enjoy a few weeks of easy wiping down and brushing, before we have to make another appointment! It’s just a shame the weather has suddenly turned cold!! That certainly wasn’t in the plan (coats are at the ready!)
