Woohoo! The kids are back at school, with much moaning. Well from E really. She took this photo on her last dog walk. A clever perspective since Harvey and Riley are impossible to photograph mid walk any other way. As you can see, plenty of mud. I did the same walk today and ended with a good long splash in the stream (the dogs not me). They came home bedraggled but happy. I lined their crates with warm towels and they hopped in to them right next to the radiator and were so worn out and content that they missed the postman. Poor chap, if he has to deliver a parcel he calls out, 'are they under control?' Oh yes, they are chained up with huge thick chains, no need to worry... Little does he know that there is a wooden gate just propped against the door frame which would take little effort to knock down. If they did they might lick him to death!
