June Showers

Last week saw typical April weather… except it’s June… blistering sunshine on the Saturday, heavy rain on the Sunday. Blue didn’t care that much, he still wanted his walk. The sun made a break through the clouds and I caught this shot on my mobile.

Springwatch

leave a comment »

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted and as Blue is loving Spring, I thought I’d better post a few pis of what he’s been up to. The above shot shows him cooling down in the cool grass with his (hidden) tennis ball. He’s pretty good off the lead now. A good chuck of the walks are off the lead. He’s been making more doggy friends this way and loves to run off the lead with them. Plus it really knackers him out.

He likes to leg it into the bean crops with his tennis ball… he knows I can’t catch him. The crops have grown quite quickly, since this shot was taken, the beans have shot skyward – in some fields they hide him completely now. The only way to know where he is is to follow the crops that are moving.

More chillin’ in the cool grass

Making Friends

leave a comment »


As the snow makes a return, Blue loves to get his nose buried into it and enjoys a game of catch the snowball.

He bumped into a recent new friend –  a big ol’ Lab called Leo, about five times his size. Whilst they were messing around a couple of other dogs showed up. Blue was in dog play heaven. He took a particular shine to a beautiful 5 month old blue merle collie called Tiger on account of his markings.

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.

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.
