Well before I tell you about today I will tell you I was in trouble last evening. My bearded one and his friend Mike went to visit a house called The Bleeding Wolf! Where Mr Marston lives, before supper. I stayed with my long haired one whilst she did some drawing. After about five minutes of this I got bored and went to look to join the boys! I had clocked the way they had gone and using my nose, I followed, up onto a bridge, down an alley, onto a road and I saw them, they hadn’t reached the Bleeding Wolf – I was so happy to find them (I am a shepherd dog, that is what I am meant to do) but they did not seem to be at all pleased to see me and I was taken back to my long kennel, my long haired one was also cross with me but I can’t help it, I need to round up my family. Never mind, I still love them and they still love me.
Now today it was a lovely sunny morning and I got my bearded one up for his walk with the tongue in the ear trick at 07:00 – I like the reaction this gets and the earlier it is the better it is.
We had a short cruise to Congleton after breakfast, this took just over an hour. We moored up my long kennel and went into town. I was walked off my two pairs of feet they obviously like charity shops and cafes. We visited most of them and they seemed to enjoy all sorts of comestibles at pavement tables, I meanwhile remained at pavement level because I am a dog I am not allowed into so many places.
Having exhausted me and their desire for retail roaming, we returned to my long kennel and set off on the second part of our journey today to a lovely rural spot just below the flight of Bosley locks. 12 of them, a rise of 110 feet. A treat for us all tomorrow morning.
I think they might be getting their paints out this evening if the rain stays away. It has been dry today but there are some dark clouds about. My photo today is me and my long haired one at our mooring I am resting with my toys.
