It's just great to get out and about - especially on a sunny day like today - and walk in companionable silence with the Man Of The House, the Lady Of The House - or if I'm REALLY lucky - both of them.
Silence that is until I see a cat and feel the need to let it know I'm here with what I hope is a slightly deep and threatening 'WUFF'.
But there's no cats out here in the fields. But I still don't get to run free in case I get the scent or sight of a rabbit or a squirrel because I'd be off in hot pursuit and maybe follow it through a hedge on to the road and get hurt.
There are some roads close by here although you can't see them. I don't mind walking on my lead and I like being with my family so it's all good. I can always have a crazy zoomy run in the garden when I get home and then soak up a bit more sun for as long as someone will stay outside with me. When they go inside, I go inside too. Well, you have to keep an eye on them. Who knows what would happen to them if I wasn't there. I don't know how they ever coped before I came along.
Before I head off for another sunny snooze, I'd like to wish ALL my American followers a really happy 4th July weekend. I'm going to try and stop by the Luau and Pool Party in Honorooroo being hosted by The Fiesty Three.Maybe I'll see you there?
The hop is hosted by Life With Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers and Confessions of the Plume.
