It’s Bank Holiday today, so of course the weather has been absolutely hideous. It’s rained & rained & rained some more all day long.
Being a typical border collie, Barney doesn’t really accept “poor weather” as a valid excuse for missing a day’s exercise - so we went for a hour long
walkpaddle round some local farmland earlier.
He had an excellent time splashing & sliding about in the fields & swimming in the flooded stream. I was just pleased I managed to avoid slipping in mud & falling flat on my face - it was a close call a couple of times though…
We only saw 2 other dogs the whole time we were down there & they were both border collies. Nearly everyone round here disappears when it’s rainy… except for the crazy collie owners ;-)
(pics are from earlier this yr - no camera with me today - I didn’t think it’d appreciate getting soaked!)
Hellooo!! You got any treats for me?
Today, Barney decided he wasn’t really in the mood for much posing.When I got the camera out during our walk through the fields, he basically just sat on top of me, then mugged me for all the dog biscuits I had in my pockets. He can be very persuasive!
