Mom's been slacking!!! just what can a dog do, when the pootie's out of reach, I need to see what you have been up to, its the usual thing to tired, well she might be but I'm not! and I want to tell yea what me and dad have been up to. Finely two days to late, I'm here reporting in.
Dads had a couple of days off work, and in time honored tradition,
he wants to educate me. (fat chance of that).
Day One, and we go to the site of “The Battle of Shrewsbury”. I don't know what he was expecting but there's not much there, just a field and a church.
The Battle of Shrewsbury was a battle fought on 21 July 1403, and was waged between an army led by the Lancastrian King, Henry IV, and a rebel army led by Henry "Hotspur" Percy from Northumberland. (The king won 2-1 after extra time and the good people of Shrewsbury provided the pitch.)
There is a pathway which leads to the church so we have a nice walk.
Day two, and I think me Dads goin' a bit loopy. He's wandering round the house whistling the tune from Captain Pugwash and muttering about me being a “salty sea dog” - just plain nuts if you ask me LOL.. Anyways, it turns out we're goin' to see me Uncle Mel and he lives on a canal boat.
We have a chat about matters nautical
Then me and Dad are off for a walk.
Now, you know when you've been for a walk and you say “we've been miles” - well in this case we did go miles (2 in fact) and can prove it. Take a look at these signposts and you'll see a 1 mile difference!!
So, there and back makes 2 miles (not a bad bit of maths that – I can count to 5 by including me tail. Dad forgot to include me in the photo!!! )
While on the subject of walks, Mum's just given Dad a book called “Short walks from Shropshire pubs” because he's non keen on this dog walking lark, but likes the pub, its a win win situation.
There are 20 walks in the book, I'm sure I heard him say we would do all of them, so watch this space!!
Well I still can't see, I'm off to the groomers this next Tuesday.
I will be catching up with you all soon.
See Yea George xxx
