Hi Freshie, welcome to the land of milk and honey (but no wine :) ) Six more days in here for me I think!

Speaking of smells.....my dog managed to find some fox poop today and had a really good roll in it before I got there. Two hefty showers and lots of dog shampoo later the smell is “almost” gone 🤯🤢😳

It doesn’t get any better with Maggie the mucky Cockapoo. Took her out to some woodland where I hadn’t been for many years. I went to a part of it where I hadn’t been for even longer. Guess what, she found a really muddy burn and decided running up and down it was great fun. It may have been for her..... 😏

After almost 12 weeks of preparation and bid submissions I led the customer presentation this afternoon. Given how awful the rehearsals were it went really well. Be on holiday now until Monday 7th. I need the breather.

Keep on keeping on people!

Your Cockerpoo sounds lovely! We used to have a Cocker Spaniel. Mad as a box of frogs! :D

Here is Maggie not being a brat! To be fair, she is a typical Cockapoo, very affectionate and always on the edge of being out of control. She recalls well on her whistle unless someone is throwing a ball for their dog, when she gets fixated on it and invariably beats them to it and steals the ball while ignoring her recall training. :cry:

Hi Freshie, took her out to the big woods today and she got a scent a disappeared into the heather and trees. She was gone for 15 minutes and I only knew roughly where she was as grouse hastily flew up in everywhere. I wasn’t happy, so that was her back on the lead!

Amazingly, tomorrow would appear to be my last day in here!
