My dog sitting duties are over. They were exceptionally well behaved. Took them out for an early walk to beat the heat. Thankfully there was a cooling breeze as it’s been a tad warm again.

I was at a bit of a loose end this morning. I felt very decadent as I had nothing to do. So the dogs and I watched a film called ‘The Sea Beast’. It was an animation and really sweet.

When I got home, I pottered in the garden for a bit (before I got too hot). Then went and gave Buddy a bath (and I didn’t mind getting sprayed too).


I’m having to post this a day late due to the Facebook outage. What was that about?! Shows you how much we rely on technology huh?

I’m still feeling crappy but managed to get to the yard. Lunged Buddy and gave him a bath as he’s being clipped tomorrow (today even).

I know I’m biased, but he really is a handsome boy. 😍

Shiny boy

Someone was looking super handsome after his bubble bath today. Admittedly he acted like I was drowning him during it. He does make me laugh. He hates having his face washed. Is that a gelding thing?! I’ve had several the same.

His mane looks so much better after a spot of Head & Shoulders. It really does the trick.


It was bathtime for Buddy today. It’s been so hot, I thought it would be a nice change for him.

Took him for a graze while he dried off. He found a pile of cleavers (or the sticky plant to you and me). He went mad for them.

We were talking about them last week at camp. That’s when I found out they were called cleavers. Love a new fact!

Happy place

This feeds my soul more than anything else. Me and my boy out for an afternoon stroll. Everywhere looks so lush and green. It was great to feel the sun on our backs too.

Hardly a soul out either. Sheer bliss!

Gave him his first full bath of the year too. His mane was disgusting. Buddy made his feelings known on the situation by standing on the shampoo bottle. 🤦🏻‍♀️ So we now have a very clean yard floor. 🤪
