Dog Training

This is Pepper who is always on the wrong side of a door. Either outside wanting in or inside wanting out. Pepper is the beloved pet of my grandson and is reputed to be a small poodle but we suspect that his mother may have had a clandestine relationship with a Bedlington terrier. He is a dear little fellow, affectionate, sweet natured and the light of my grandson's life. We are taking care of Pepper for a day or two and he sees to it that we keep up our ball-throwing practice though he hasn't quite mastered the bringing it back thing yet. Pepper also ensures that we get our daily walk which we all enjoy though I must say I can't work up the same interest in the things he likes to investigate. After all, when you've seen one lamp post, you've seen them all - haven't you?
The real estate in our garden seems to be undergoing a change, with the magpies moving house. They usually come back to the same nest each year but this year they appear to have taken a fancy to a des. res. in another paddock. I do hope they will bring their babies to visit.
Must go now as it's time for that walk. Hope your day is turning out well. Bye for now until next time.

  1. Hi Elsie, lovely to see you've started blogging*!*

    I'm sure Pepper will tell you it's not just another lamp post - it's the things we humans can't see, like who last visited and cocked their leg. Canine social network ;)

    Your Maggies will be back with their chicks in tow I'm sure*!*

  2. Thanks for stopping by Bimbimbie. Getting the hang of blogging but still making mistakes. Pepper is going home today. I'll miss him :-(
