Picture this

Not sure how often I have referred to being busy this year – well, the trend continues and we are both digging deep into a depleted energy bank. Titus looks at us as if to say “what’s your problem?” and will kindly demonstrate how to discharge surplus energy. 

Whilst the concept of “surplus” is an anathema to most of us, his well intended demo does warrant visualisation. Picture one beautifully groomed dog (fresh from the hairdressers and smelling of roses) performing a series of Schnauzer Circles (manic, high energy “zoomies” in a large figure of eight). 

As an audible whirl of “surplus” energy echos through the forest, a dog-like blur slows down and stops at our feet having undergone a miraculous transformation into a balanced and contented beast - covered in mud up to his ears, decorated in bracken and smelling like a peat bog.  So there you go (thank you Titus) .

Sounds very familiar! We've given up keeping Skye dry but at least on the beach is only sea puddles/the actual sea she goes into. As for Reuben and Brodie and they preferto stay dry but love rolling in unspeakable things! Hope you get some energy back soon-the house must be nearly finished, no?
