Adventure before dementia

DJ's news on 2nd March

... None!!

I did promise him that i would keep his year up to date.

Actually he had a lazy morning really.  I was still horse sitting - so when I took Secret and Smudge out to their field I brought him in, so that he could munch some hay if he wanted.  He didn't eat much - mostly just stood and watch me muck-out the 2 boxes ... I got the feeling he was giving me marks out of 10!

We met up with Ros and Rags later than normal this morning and then had a short ride.  Another new route, as they have re-opened a bridle path that had been closed for a few weeks.  so somewhere new to see, but when we picked up the usual path, Ros made us go first - so poor DJ had to work hard rather than his usual "follow-my-leader".  Still he was a good boy, got on - and didn't lead Rags astray!

And so back home - for a feed and then back to his field.

Was it only us?

... My parent's dog is thinking of contacting the RSPCA ... and asking for asylum!

Yes - Saturday night, my parents, myself and Jiffy stood outside in the back garden in the cold and dark staring into space.  I think Jiffy thought we had finally flipped - he is 10 months old and knows we are mad - but Saturday reached new heights!!

For those not living in England - it was a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE MOON - and as the skies were clear we had an amazing site of the moon disappearing and then appearing as a pinky-orange globe, before gradually reappearing.

So, a lovely site - but our dog knew that only mad people stand and stare into space!
