Thusday 2nd June; Lottie and Charlie went on their play date today to the fields close to the cricket ground as Shootersway was closed off as was the High Street. The dogs bounded around the fields together then did their poops and wees before finding interesting little creatures rustling in the grasses. Both Charlie and Lottie stood poised to see what wildlife was making this noise but whatever it was have sussed we were there as it went suddenly very quiet! We spotted some rabbits dashing into burrows in the next field but Lottie and Charlie were very good and didn't bat an eye lid, instead they focused on their sniff-a-thon. We walked over to Bridgewater school and then looped back around again to the car. The dogs looked pretty tired by the time we reached the car and I offered them some water before we headed back home where the dogs could enjoy a doggie snack and an afternoon doze. What a life!

Tuesday 31st May; Charlie, Bob and Roxie all went out on their play date together today to Long Green woods and the farmers fields. They love this walk and soon they were charging up and down the hillside as the wind bend the tall grasses back and forth like waves. The dogs did lots of sniffing, weeing and poops and then Roxie and Charlie had a race followed by Bob and Charlie with Roxie bringing up the rear. As usual Charlie pipped the girls to the post with his lean long legs. So Roxie and Bob decided to have a little run in circles amongst the poppies while Charlie sniffed around catching up on the latest dog news in the neighbourhood.  The sun popped in and out behind the clouds as we made our way through the fields. The dogs had some more games of chase and they looked like horses in the Grand National as they leaped over grassy mounds in pursuit of one another. Bob enjoyed a dig in the ground while Charlie spun around being silly as Roxie circled him. Soon it was time to make our way back through the fields and woods to the car where the dogs could then say goodbye and head home for a rest and well earned doggie treat. See attached photo.

Thursday 26th May; Charlie, Roxie and Lottie all went to the cricket fields for their play date. It was en masse pooping, sniffing and grass eating from the moment we stepped into the fields. We said hello to a couple border terriers we meet fairly regularly then it started to thunder. All the dogs stopped and stared at me as if to say "What was that?" I ignored it and said cheerily "come on then" and they stuck close by. Lottie was in a very playful mood and played chase games with Charlie and also Roxie, woofing them along to encourage high speed. Then Charlie and Roxie had a race - Charlie was gentlemanly and ran parallel with Roxie so the race was a tie. Meanwhile, Lottie buried her head in the grass for a nose. Soon the sun was beating down on us and the dogs slowed their pace. We turned tail and head slowly back to the car as the thunder rumbled on in the distance. See attached photo.

Tuesday 24th May; Charlie, Bob and Roxie were the three doggie musketeers today charging around the farmers field chasing one another and scents. There were birds hopping around that caught the little ones attention and they enjoyed trotting through the long grasses over the dips in the fields. Soon the threesome were tired with all the games and we slowed down as we made our way back through the shaded woodland. Then Bob, Roxie and Charlie said their goodbyes as we made our way home.

Monday 23rd May; Charlie had his play date with his basset mate Howard. There was a little flirt hello before the boys and I headed into Long Green for their walk. Charlie did lots of sniffing around and the boys made me smile as they over marked one another's wee spots. Charlie did his spins and plays bows to me initiated after some back tickling. The boys then raced down the footpaths together although Charlie beat him in an instant with his long and lean legs! Soon it was back to the house where Charlie as very happy to see his human sister and we had a chat about exams as Charlie happily munched his food then I said goodbye for today. See attached.
