At last we are having some warmer weather and we can get some serious warmth in to our bones. I don’t know about you but the last few months without the sun just makes me sluggish and aching to the bones.
But the sun is here and the spirits are lifted, and Buster can top up his suntan.
One thing I have noticed when it gets warmer is that mum and dad start to have their meals outdoors. This brings me on to the photograph and the sneaky lick i got of the muffin.
It is well documented that we love food and whilst my dad was waiting for his tea to cool, he was taking some photographs for Oldvarieties and he left out his cake.
Now not one to miss a chance of cake, and chocolate cake at that, I waited until he was well involved with setting up the photograph and I pounced.
Up on to the chair and paws onto the table…. Dad swung around and click… photo taken, plan foiled… drat. What a chance missed.
With the sunshine also comes the smell of sausages and the tradition of cooking outdoors. My mum can’t see the point in setting fire to some charcoal in a bucket and burning a couple of ‘snag’s on the barby‘ . But as the smell drifts across the calm night air, from neighbouring gardens, we lift our noses to the heavens and sniff. The whiff of sausage, bacon, chops and other munchables is just heaven.
A fellow blogger…
As you know I love to surf the net and find stories from around the globe featuring colleagues. Given all the searching, you would have thought I would easily have come across a fellow Cocker Spaniel also publishing a blog. Well the search is over as I have found a blog written by Rags. He seems to be a bit of a nutter like me and loves to have his picture taken. A kindred spirit with his own fan club no less. I think I need a word with mum to see if I can have one.
Looking through his blog it looks like he stayed near here during his holidays so maybe our paths might cross on a walk someday. Keep in touch and hope the toothbrushing goes ok...
A couple of postings ago I mentioned about a few services for helping to reunite lost colleagues with their humans.
Following on from this and after a little bit more webwork we have found another site called PawTrax. They list lost and found pets but also are soon to offer a GPS tracker system incase we wander off. Not sure how it will work but we would love to review one when they become available.
They also have a big contacts list for dogwarden services throughout the UK. If you know of a similar list for your area then let us know and we can link to it.
I have asked my dad to add the RSS feed of the lost and found pets to the bottom of this post.
Well that is all for now, Mum has just shouted tea -time
So until next time
Charlie and Buster
Here is the list of lost or found pets as listed on PawTrax
