Caught Out – Tuesday 5th February 2019

Caught out

Wilma has been caught out. Our Mistress was aware that Wilma was getting up to the vegetable troughs but had not completely worked out how she was doing it. You have to remember that Wilma is not stupid. We had caught her already standing on her hind legs to have a look to see if there was anything edible she could get to, but our Mistress hadn’t actually found how she had manage to be sitting there one day, given it’s quite high. Now we know. I think on balance it is good news that she can’t just jump up. For one thing, at the moment there is no soil in them and might have got a nasty surprise and hurt herself. As it turns out, she has found her own steps.


Our Mistress says there are now several options. Option one she moves the roof box. Option two, she moves the vegetable troughs. Or option three she moves Wilma. I’ve seen Wilma when she is feeling determined. Frankly, I don’t think there is a hope of any of the three methods being successful now she’s realised she can help herself to extra food. She tries to get my breakfast every morning, if our Mistress isn’t quick enough at spotting she’s finished hers.

Happy Dogs

Aristotle and Wilma were both happy dogs yesterday. For the last few weeks our Mistress has been taking them on a different walk so she didn’t get in the way of the farmers. Yesterday she went back to the airfield which they all love. Aristotle walked further than he’s walked for a few weeks and came back saying he doesn’t want to give up going for walks after all. Wilma was positively bouncing and saying she can’t wait for her walk today. They even made me wonder if I’d like to go for a little leg stretch, but I’ll wait until it warms up a bit first. I shall go swimming today in some nice warm water and that will suit me fine.

Shadow was equally happy yesterday as she walked round the village and she really does love to leave her scent everywhere so the other local dogs still know she about. Some things never change.

Have a lovely day
