Dexter gives the impression of enjoyment:
Sasha eyes a more distant prize:
And closes in:
Not bad for a change to be on this log:
The same old place, but we will look around anyway:
Caught by the winter sun:
Distant contemplation :
A group photo at the foot of the hill:
Close-up of Sasha – slightly disheveled:
Dexter assessing the breeze:

Sasha puts up with the lead:

The story of the barking neighbourhood German Shephard, Jock continues. There has been a new, unfortunate development in the case. Paula, his owner left a message tonight to say that someone had complained to the Council about Jock’s barking putting his future in immediate danger. It turns out that Paula has attributed to us as the people who have reported Jock to the Council – a conclusion that does not make sense to me or my neighbour.
She was I suppose a little emotional, and accused us of being responsible. Luckily, I got to the message first. So what I thought if it is possible to make a complaint, it should also be possible to make a compliment. I rang up the Council and spoke to the Rangers and told them that Jock was not barking, that he was a nice dog, that his owner was distressed with the developments, and that her six year old daughter was particularly fond of him. The person there took my details and said she would add my comments to Jock’s file. Trouble is, just tonight Jock started barking again.
