More photos

Yesterday we were out getting coal and logs for the coming cold weather.  Think we need to stock up on food at some stage as well, just in case the winter becomes prolonged with icy roads. Lucy has now been insured against the supposedly horrendous bills should she become ill in the future, it is weird how we are held to ransom by people who can quote enormous figures whether vet or dentist, perhaps we should question their bills more sharply!

Feed me please. Yesterday when the man who had come to service the boiler, stood at a table filling in a form, she very carefully dropped her food bowl on his shoes in anticipation...

Her one and only trick 'high five'

I need to walk in a wood

A typical village we drive through, Middleton I think

Yes, all the roads are up, once more.


Meandering around, my mind has almost stopped working so I shall concentrate a bit more. Back to my books I think, but just one more thing,  Lucy today, came across our two squirrels running along the church wall and tried to jump up, but she will have to jump higher.  We have both decided that she is compromising on our rules, off the furniture by day but on by night.  Wonder if the 'reward' system works....

  1. Lucy surely has winsome ways--I wonder if her former owners encouraged her trait of carrying things about or if it has always been a natural part of her personality.
    I am freshly amazed each time I see photos of English villages that the front doors of houses open so directly onto the road.

    1. Carrying things around of course does not do her teeth any good. Thought about the cottages, you must remember, that these cottages can date from the 17th century when all there was would be was dirt tracks in front with a bit of greenery. It is the new larger tarmac roads that have forced the roads back up to the front doors.

  2. Oh dear = that adorable Lucy has twisted you round her little finger or claw or whatever. Mind you she is pretty gorgeous and has settled in so well that I suppose you can almost forgive her aything.

    1. Trying to get to grips with her little mind is the problem;) Did the North wind hit you last night?

  3. Oh dear - you just don't stand a chance with such beautiful eyes like those looking at you - Lucy could wrap me round her little finger with one glance, mind I do have a very soft spot for Cocker Spaniels xxx

    1. Hi Trudie, what you don't see in a still photo is her little tail wagging furiously for applause! X

  4. Lucy is such a character and has me wound round her paw! Like Sharon (MM) I wonder if her tricks are part of her personality (needy!) or she's been taught them. Lovely girl either way.
