Saturday And We Say Hello To Marie In Skye
I've had a busy few days on my holidays from work. Firstly I had to do a horse shoot (camera, not gun!) for a work colleague, which was really enjoyable for me. Then my friends arrived on Thursday night, and we've taken in two beautiful sunsets and even a sunrise/dawn (pic enclosed) which involved getting up at 2.45am. Given that they're not photography people, I was well impressed that they joined me. I think they enjoyed the sight, but we're still suffering from sleep deprivation. We've been blessed with great weather and the dogs are enjoying it too, although sometimes struggling with the heat and I think Cody may have hay fever (do dogs get this?) Briagha is still doing her houdini act through the fence into the field, and I'm still trying to stop her. I still have another week off work to go, yippee! Marie
Thanks Marie, I am not sure about dogs and hay fever but they do get grass and dust allergies. Chelsea suffers very badly this time of the year and is on constant medication to try and keep itching and swelling at bay! What a really beautiful photo certainly worth the very early start, it is just a magical scene! All you need to do is take an afternoon nap and you will feel refreshed!
We are still at Newbury it is so hot here I decided to pull the dogs from competition this afternoon. Parker had a fantastic fast round this morning but I could not keep him under control and he had faults in the agility. He had a clear round in the steeplechase mid morning but ran lot slower due to the heat. Diesel ran well but made one small mistake for 5 faults. We are entered again tomorrow but if it is too hot and the dogs are lethargic I will scratch from competition.
