I have spent the last couple of days at my parents place looking after their dog (the little munchkin) while they went on a quick mid week break.
It was a nice change for Wiley to have a garden to hang out in. The boys seemed to enjoy each others company which made things nice and easy. I still fed and walked them separately but they would often curl up on the same bed together – so sweet.
I really enjoyed walking in a new area. Thanks to cycle paths and underpasses I can walk for over two hours without needing to cross a busy road. The aromas where I was walking were beautiful – lots of different perfumed flowers and blossoms, some delicious BBQ’s and freshly mown grass tantalised my nostrils. I can only imagine what they were doing to the boys noses. I love how each season has it’s own unique smell.
I also love the sound of spring, lots of birds noises, mating calls, frogs croaking – it is fabulous that even in the middle of suburbia nature is all around.
I got a pleasant surprise this morning when I opened my email to find a lovely email from the person who arranged the Spiral talk Wiley and I did back in September. He also attached a couple of photos. I asked a friend which photo they liked best and they said this one.
It was a hot and windy day here yesterday, I have to admit I am not looking forward to summer. To make sure i am prepared I got all of Wiley’s cooling gear out of storage the other day and checked to make sure it is still servicable.
I am beginning to purposely go out with Wiley in the middle of the day. At the moment most days are warm (well warmer than our early morning recreational walks) but not hot. Hopefully we can gradually acclimatise to the upcoming warmer months.
