Because it was so hot today, we were only giving the dogs short walks, so I took two, one after the other. I expected to be handed Genghis again, but instead was asked to take out a couple of new boys, Bongo [really?] and Nina. They could scarcely been more different:
Genghis Khan – he of the floppy ears – has become my regular companion at BCDH, and, though the picture above was taken last week when I was on my own, Mrs P and I both went up today to give the young mutt a bit of exercise. We actually managed, after an hour’s walk and a half-hour frantic scamper around the paddock in pursuit of his rubber ring, to tire him out to an extent that the carers thought most un-Genghis-like.
It’s glorious up there these days; Summer is at full strain, and the greenery is just stunning.
