I've had enough of the snow now. My morning constitutional has been curtailed by the cold and the icy road surfaces in the lanes. 'Her Indoors' is a bit cautious after going end over apex on the ice last winter. She should have four legs instead of two, it gives you a lower centre of gravity. Anyway, after a week of short walks, I've got a lot of pent up energy which I expended barking in the kitchen at the birds flying down to the bird table. All good fun.
Still, at least I saw bouncing Bonnie, a Border Collie who lives in the house next to the playing fields, this morning. Her owners have thoughtfully provided her with a chain-link fence so that she can see all the dogs on the field. She bounces next to the fence barking. She must jump a good five feet in the air - very impressive. When I got home, 'Her Indoors' made herself a sandwich for her packed lunch and accidentally dropped a bit of Waitrose sliced chicken breast on the floor. It was delicious so I tried a Bonnie bounce next to the work top to see if I could get some more. All I got was thoroughly told off.
