12. In the dog house

Just a few blogs with photos to illustrate what we’ve been doing and where we’ve been doing it for the past week. We’ve been pretty busy since Kelly returned from their sourjon to Spruce Meadows, not that we mind, at least we feel more useful, knackered but useful!

IMAG1974IMAG1971Chatzi, the hound, has the most unexpected house, a washing machine. Actually, it might be a drier but I only see it in the dark usually. Alex, meanwhile, seems to live in  duck house! He spends quite a lot of time in or beside it as he is only allowed off his chain in the afternoons. Yellow dog, now christened Smellow, doesn’t get much time off his chain at all but Zorro is free at night so he is responsible for bringing back various remnants of horse carcass from the fields! It was only a hoof today but was a full hindquarter a few nights ago! He goes off to play with the coyotes at night but even they have rejected the horse in favour of a dead cow! Heyho, country life. Luvic isn’t stupid, he now sleeps in the porch but has to get off the sofa when I get up for the loo in the night!

    Can I assume the furst sentence should read, “Just a few blogs..”?


    Judging from the pictures, it seems that there’s a hint of favouritism towards Alex?

      Thanks for pointing out the typo, duly corrected.
      I wasn’t aware of favouring Alex but he is lovely, as are Luvic, Shatzi and even Zorro when he’s not nipping the horses legs.
