I hope you forgive me for doing another 'doggy' post.
But looking through photos from Tuesday,
this first one made me smile,
and I couldn't resist including it in today's post.
Jess is on the right and Arthur on the left.
I don't intend turning this into a doggy blog,
(though Mike has had thoughts of doing his own dog blog).
But I know that Jess's previous owner and friends at the kennels
(do take a look at their website if you have time),
look in here to see how she's doing.
I haven't been posting regularly.
So here's a brief update.
Most days after the morning and afternoon walks,
we go to our bit of land
so the hounds can have a run round.
Jess is very playful and she enjoys running after a ball, frisbee
or other toy.
I liked the way Jess and Arthur were facing the same way
but I couldn't get close enough before they moved.
So it almost looks as though she is on top of Arthur in the photo above.
Jess was interested in someone jogging by
and ran up to the fence
and had a jolly good bark.
Well Mike is due back from the UK this afternoon.
He had another brief trip over there a week earlier.
Before he went, you could see that Jess was besotted with him.
While he was away though she followed me everywhere I went.
She's been the same this time.
She particularly likes hanging out in the kitchen with me when I'm busy.
But I think that's due to hoping she might get a tasty snack or a drink of milk.
But when Mike arrived back,
she was a bit wary of him.
Though I should explain that he was in his motor bike suit,
and he had someone else with him.
It took a while for her to get used to him again,
then he was off again.
I wonder what she'll be like when he gets back today.
I will let you know.
