Thanks a lot Aubie - the rain has travelled from you to me. Lots of it accompanied with strong winds.
Last Wednesday we had quite a bad storm, torrential rain and winds of 60 mph, gust up to 80.
Not been a particularly good week for me. I ordered a new tumble dryer from a company on line, it was meant to be delivered Thursday p.m. Get call from driver saying he'd be with me in 20 minutes, before midday. Great!
A couple of minutes later he calls back to say the dryer isn't on his truck.
Next call from head office. Telling me that the dryer will be delivered in another two weeks.
No it will not! I cancelled the order and went into the main town and bought one, slightly more costly but at least it is set up to go.
I have at least five big dogs here and with the wet and mud, get through several towels (and my clothes) after each walk. Neighbour's have been great in drying for me but I don't want to take advantage.
Fridays I take my Aunt out (she's 94 next Thursday) she gets her hair done and then we go for fish and chips so, no supper for me, filled up!
Temperatures are dropping for the next few days, might even get a touch of frost tonight - that will be the first this winter. Ridiculous.
Even on the top of the Downs it is sodden, the puddles have puddles. For some reason there are still 44 yearling (guess they turn 2 this spring) out somthey are cutting the paths up quite a bit.
Django, a street dog from Morocco I have with me for a month whilst his owner is away, has improved greatly in not going after the cattle. He will try to round them up if he sees them before I do but he does stop when I holler at him.
Last week we came across about 15 of the beasts, imwas busy watching Django to make sure he didn't go after any and forgot my elderly GSD was about 100 yards behind me. She is now very wary of the cattle as she knows she can't move out the way fast enough. Poor old lady was trying to catch up with me when 2 steers started to follow close to her. Then more started to surround her. I was going back for her when Django ran past me, snapped a d barked at th steers driving them away and proceeded to stay by Bria's side until she was with me, then he ran off with the Pointer rabbit hunting.
Django the Hero dog. Bria was always boss dog, now her back end is weak they are all protective of her. I find it fascinating to watch.
