Country park

Postcards from Florence:

In Plessey Woods, Northumberland, with Harvey and our Beloveds yesterday. The river Blyth looks so tranquil, doesn't it?

Too tranquil.


A perfect stick - no, it's not too big. Just the thing for two optimists to share.

A bit of swimming. Ignore all ducks; silly birds that don't fetch sticks.

Never dived off a platform before.... dip paw in water first....


Some galloping up and down, showing Harvey how very obedient I am to calls of "Flossie, here!" The Beloved said I was on my best behaviour today. She was so proud of me!

A game of tug with a ball on a rope.

A lovely muddy log. Too big for my mouth, but I nearly had it!

Home to Harvey's for a well earned snooze in front of the Aga, while the Beloveds had a cup of tea (and a shortbread biscuit, but did they share with us? No.... Harvey is on a diet, so I have to suffer too.)

We loved Plessey Woods. We must go there again; there's a lot of stick-tidying to do.

Love it! I liked the comment about the stick being big enough for two optimists. It reminded me of the time I was on a walk with my sister's black Lab who happily clobbered a mountain biker with a small sapling. Fortunately the cyclist was a dog-lover too!

Great pics! They look like they've had a fantastic time together. I love the 'happy and relaxed' pose by the Aga!

Doggie heaven! Glad the Beloveds had such a great day together. All of them.

I love these photos! It's wonderful to see them having such a great time.

annie hoff said...

Mmmm - I wonder. Would she carry logs uphill do you think? She really could be very useful up here!

It is so apparent how much both of you love each other! It makes me smile :-)

What fun they had. Did they smell good at the end of it?
Love yesterdays post, Flossie is better at tidying up than any of my children were!
