Wet wet wet......Where has summer gone?

No stranger to getting wet, with his weekly swim, but even Blue is wondering where summer has gone, mind you August Bank Holiday, in Reading normally means rain for the music festival goers.

Blue seems to be ageing in front of our very eyes, and mellowing too.

He has wanted more cuddles, which we all enjoy, and is never far away from us around the house, not that we live in a stately residence, if you get my meaning.

Yesterdays walk was shortened, Blue was telling us he needed to rest, and his gait was a little "lollopy" probably not a real word, but as he walked his hind quarters tended to roll as moved.

Given he laid down several times, we ended the walk, and at home he seemed very restful, so light duties for a few days.

This week he is off to the vets for his annual booster; When he walks in there he will need a restrainer not a booster, at the time of booking my wife reminded the vets of his history, and they said that Blue has a file note "Difficult customer" oh dear Blue they know you so well!

In a few weeks we will be heading North to the Lake District, a location frequented often by us on an annual basis for a few years, below are a few pics of recent visits by Blue

That's it, I'm off to get our bags ready, just kidding,but honestly we have had some great times.

Apart from the challenge where some little scumbag took all our holiday money last year.

Blue would like them to return so that we can show our appreciation.

But then again we will never ever lodge with "Cumbrian Cottages".

A word to the wise, you will be surprised how many people hold keys to their properties.

There will be another few updates about Blue before we go, and any advice on places to visit with an almost friendly German Shepherd would be most welcome.
