Unfortunately snow is not looking likely, yet again, here in Ireland but as it is usually a one or two day mushy affair, we are perhaps better off without it. However, these photos will explain the title of the blog post.
No surprise in the first one. Bob asleep…again.
Even Ellie could not waken him.
She considered joining him but only for a minute.
But she did find one or two interesting things beneath the tree, did you spot them?
It left her feeling a little puzzled or is it just that intent border collie look, begging for someone anyone to play with her? You can decide while we grab a racket and a ball.
Happy Christmas everyone and a great, 2017 to all.
Because he is now a Senior Dog (in a lot of ways) Bob believes walks should be taken at a very sedentary pace. All I can say is we do try to gee him up.
But it never works.
His new ploy is: ears stand to attention and he turns to his right as if to say, “What is that?”
Ellie will automatically stop and do the same. Or he will wag his tail at a neighbour as though inviting conversation. This one really works. Therefore our twenty minute short walk now takes, 27-35 minutes.
I tried taking him through the fields, and that is worse.
He takes it as an invitation to sit and admire everything about him. While she races around like a greyhound until she gets tired.
I wonder if I could build a Bob buggy….similar to a golf buggy?
