Don’t back down

Not snowed in

leave a comment »


With the UK blanketed in snow, the media are really going to town with the downbeat reporting of ‘Arctic UK’. Personally, I’ve found the main roads salted and clear with no real problem. I’ve driven 250 miles this week with no issues.

Blue’s loving it, maybe it’s his Tibetan Terrier genes, but he had a great time today.

G strapping up his bindings at the top of another empty slope. Nearing the end of a bluebird day, the wind picks up and the dry powder flows up n’ over the slope.

Taming of the Blue

leave a comment »

I’ve finally managed to tire out Blue by running with him off the lead. He carves out large arcs at breakneck speed in figure of 8’s around me, followed by a extended game of chase the tennis ball, crashing through hedges, ending with (if there are any other dogs around) an explosive run-jump-play fight with a random fellow local dog. He loves it and is getting used to running off the lead. He’s crashed out next to me, where he’ll stay like that for several peaceful hours.

This is an old pic of Blue, I just love how happy he is, taking a breather from chasing his tennis ball.

November Sun

I love walking in the Autumn. Despite the wind and occasional horizontal rain, it seems all worth it when the low sun baths the land with its gentle warm glow. The shadows are unbelievably long and it feels like you’re walking through a watercolour painting. In one of his favourite fields, Blue stopped to gaze through the wire fence with an alert but calm inquisitiveness. I snapped this pic on my aging mobile, but it came out rather well.

No Running

Poor old Blue is not allowed any major exercise after his op. Yep, he had ‘them’ removed, the poor sod. There has been no significant change in his behaviour, but maybe now he’ll stop trying to hump his bean-bag toy dog 24-7. The collar has to stay on for another week, until then, he’ll have to continue his routine of crashing into doorways and giving me ‘the big stare’.
