1st January

Happy New Year everyone. Can't say I am very keen on all these fireworks going off. All around us are explosions and loud banging. Boss Woman says not to worry and that when I wake up in the morning it will be quiet again. Hope so, they are scaring me and Amber to death. Apparently Boss Woman has signed us up for a 1000 mile challenge walk. We have to walk 1000 miles during 2017. Not sure if she is trying to wear our legs out or what but I think she forgets that me and Amber are no spring chickens anymore. Boss Woman is touting around for sponsorship for us, with the money going to our friends at www.sbtrescue.co.uk, if you would care to sponsor us then please do. Not many dogs are as fortunate as me and Polly so we want to try and help other unfortunate dogs if we can. Even 1p per mile would be very very welcome.

A lovely walk today from Caversham, but a bit muddy on the paths though. Passed some nosey cows that were looking over the fence at us and of course Boss Woman had to stroke and have a conversation with them. Her gloves were filthy when she had finished stroking their heads, serves her right for being so chatty. Same when we saw some horses, she had to have a chat with them as well while me and Amber were sat waiting patiently for her on the muddy freezing cold ground. When Boss Woman stroked the nose of one of the horses, she felt a big massive rose thorn stuck in it, so she pulled it out. The horse did look suitably grateful. The horse kept sniffing Boss Woman's glove, it probably could smell the stinky cow smell on it. While Boss Woman was speaking to another horse further down the lane, it leaned right over the fence and started trying to pull my fur out on my back. I was very good though and I didn't growl or anything, I just stood up and walked away. I wasn't scared of it, even though it was about 20 times bigger than me. It really ought to learn the difference between my brown fur and green grass though and I don't think I look a bit like a bale of hay.

Jesse the very handsome French Bulldog caught us up on our walk in the woods today. He is still a bit annoying but nothing like as bad as he used to be. Anyway, after me and Amber growled at him a few times and chased him around a bit, he soon got to learn who is the boss and then he walked nicely with us.
Monday
9th January
2 dodgy looking people knocked on the door so me and Amber ran out to see who they were. They were TERRIFIED of us. Apparently they were collecting for some charity and wanted Boss Woman's Bank details so she could give a regular donation. The little guy was saying to Boss Woman "How many dogs do you have" and the dodgy woman asked if we were guard dogs. Well Boss Woman saw them off and we helped her by glaring at them. I didn't like them one bit and even Amber didn't wag her tail at them. Boss Woman said that if she had any money spare she would give to the charity of her choice, not to some strangers knocking on the door asking for Bank details. Seriously? Yes they were scared of us so I don't think they will be back in a hurry.
Saturday
14th January
We went into the local pet shop yesterday and Boss Woman asked the lady there if she would sponsor me and Amber for our 1000 mile walk challenge. Honestly, you would think Boss Woman was asking her if she would rehome me! Take that as a NO then. LOL. Met some interesting people today in the woods. Man had 5 (or was it 6?) spaniels, all vying for attention from MY Boss Woman to chuck sticks for them. Cheek of it. He also had a Jack Russell puppy that he had taken off some 'travellers', apparently the kids there were swinging it around by it's back legs so the man paid £20 for it just so he could rescue it from a life of cruelty. What a nice man. Another man had 2 dogs, 1 of which was a Wheaten Terrier. Boss Woman was making a right fuss of the Wheaten Terrier but I wasn't very impressed, he looked a bit grumpy to me. Further on we saw a woman with 2 dogs, 1 of which was a Dalmation that had a muzzle on because it bit people. Really not sure why they are called 'travellers'. All they seem to do is move from one park to another making and leaving a mess everywere, they don't seem to travel very far. Me and Polly do more travelling than they do.
Monday
16th January
Had a lovely walk on the Ridgeway at Bury Down and met 2 friendly lively young Collies who I had a good run around with. One of them was a little bit naughty because it kept trying to jump up at Boss Woman. Their Boss Woman said that she was walking near Newbury recently and in the distance she saw 2 women one of which had white trousers on and her very friendly jumping up Collies ran towards this woman with the white trousers. Well, it doesn't take Einstein to work out what happened next. I mean, WHITE trousers! What sort of person goes walking with WHITE trousers on anyway???
Saturday
21st January
Had a really busy morning. 5 powered gliders set off from the field next to our garden. I tell you, it took a bit of persuading from me to make sure they didn't come over MY airspace. Anyway, after I had run up and down and round the garden a few dozen times, barking really loudly at them, they decided not to land in my garden but went over by the river instead. Grrrrr
Friday
27th January

Saw a little bad mannered Chihuhua down the road today that was snarling and barking at me and Amber as we walked past. Pffft. I growled back to tell it to shut up but Amber just ignored it because she thought it was stupid.
W
hat I find very strange is that today on our walk, we saw about 6 or 7 people all walking around carrying their cardboard costa coffee cups like trophies. Like ... look at me, don't I look silly ....... Why can't they just be like me and have a drink and that's it until next time I feel thirsty? They all look the 'type' and all carry their stupid cardboard coffee cups around while they are walking the streets but I never see them drink. How very odd. People look at me and Polly and say we are that 'type' of dog, well me and Polly look at them and think they are that 'type' of people. LOL

Sunday
29th January
Not sure how it works exactly BUT if me or my 'type' of dog kill, maim or threaten anyone then we are put to death, usually immediately and then humans call for a total ban on our 'type' of dog. Well many hundreds, if not thousands of car drivers are killing, maiming and threatening people every single minute of every single day and what? We live in a 30 mph speed limit apparently and probably 75% of drivers of cars/buses/lorries/vans and even police cars are speeding as they pass us, many on their phones and NOTHING is done. Do you know just how difficult it is to cross the road and how dangerous for us dogs and our owners it is? Doesn't seem right somehow that humans are supposed to be superior to dogs and yet they can't even understand a simple 30 mph sign. Me, Polly and Boss Woman have had to run fast across the road many times to avoid getting run over by speeding drivers. Today we were half way across the road and the speeding idiot driving up the road round the bend, didn't even try and slow down.
Monday
30th January
There I was, minding my own business in the field by the river when suddenly about 100 geese took off from the next field. What a racket they were making. So, I did what any self respecting dog would do and I chased them, barking at them to let them know they had better keep flying and not land in the field where I was. You can see it HERE on You Tube if you want. Near the end of our walk we saw a man with 3 rescue dogs, 1 was a Lurcher sort of German Shepherd type cross and the other 2 were Greyhound types. They were sooooo fast, they were like streaks of lightening. They ran like the wind. Even I, and I am a pretty fast runner, would have no chance of catching them. Well impressed I was. Polly tried to catch the geese but they were flying too high and too fast.

6th February

Big Guy is doing a lot of work on the house and he had to dig a massive ditch because apparently we need a new electric meter and cable. The 2 men that came in the morning to put the cable in made a right big fuss of me and Amber. One of them had a Jack Russell and he said he particularly likes Terriers. Then in the afternoon a man called Vince came to put a new electric meter and he said he had seen us on the television last year, when we went down to Golant in Cornwall. He made a right fuss of us as well. I think he said he had a dog called Charlie. When we went for our walk in the afternoon to the woods, we met a man and woman who were out for a walk and they didn't like us at all, in fact the ignorant woman almost stood on Amber's leg. She was horrible.

Wednesday
8th February
Went right to the top of the fields today and then through the woods. In the field we saw a sinkhole. Last time we saw a sinkhole was when we walked on the Ridgeway near Chinnor and that one was massive, the one today was only about 4 ft. deep and 5 ft. wide. Me and Amber kept walking around it like puzzled, wondering what the hole was for. It was a good hole, much bigger than me and Polly could ever dig.
Friday
10th February
So there we were minding our own business, going for a wak in the woods, when a pack of dogs off lead, came towards us on the path being followed by 2 paid dogwalkers. We have seen these dog walkers before and what occasionally happens is that some of the dogs approach us, sometimes for a sniff, sometimes to play (annoy us) or sometimes to tower over us, which is normal for a pack of dogs. Well one of the dogs, a German Shepherd approached Amber and towered over her. She did NOT like it and so she told it off. THEN one of the dog walkers reacted towards Amber because she did not like Amber telling her dog off. Instead of keeping an eye on her charges, for which she gets paid for, she would rather blame Amber for her perfectly normal reaction towards a dominant or annoying dog. Someone told Boss Woman it is because the woman is not keen on Staffies. Pffftt ..... stupid woman. She really ought to keep her dogs under control. I NEVER go up to her dogs and pester them and so she should stop her dogs from pestering me and if they do approach me and I react, well she shouldn't be surprised..... Simple ..... Obviously even though she is a dog walker, she has little undersanding of doggie eqiquette. We often walk with other dogs and as long as the other dogs are calm and not annoying or aggressive, then we all get on fine and can walk for miles. We don't have any problem with other paid dogwalkers and their dogs, just these 2 and their pack.

Went past the sink hole on our walk this morning and it has sunk even further. Boss Woman said not to stand too near the edge in case it sinks some more while I am stood over it. On the way back we saw the big brute that is a Boxer x Amstaff. He is a bit of a bully and towers over me and Amber when we see him and further on we saw some people with 3 Jack Russells, one of which would not stop barking and hid behind it's owner when I looked at it. Just as we got nearly home, Boss Woman saw a someone called David and his very nice Irish lady girlfriend, so they took me another 5 mile walk. Tired now .... zzzzz The owner of the thug dog made a fuss of me and then the stupid thug dog tried to nip me because it was jealous of the attention I was getting from his owner.
Monday
20th February
Had a good walk on the Thames path today. Loads of people were discussing with Boss Woman about the local landowner blocking a path that has been used for 40 years or more. Apparently if there are enough people who complain about it, then the footpath man at the Council will put a case forward. Unfortunately not many people have formally complained. A lot of people moan about it all the time but not many will get involved and write to the footpath man, the excuse being "well it is too late now" and "what can I do anyway". Pfffftt apathy is a shameful disgraceful attitude. There are many footpaths being closed or compromised and no new ones being opened up. Us dogs and our owners have fewer and fewer places to go walking, especially near towns and villages. Needles to say, Boss Woman has been vociferous in her condemnation of the footpath closure and has made her stance very clear to the footpath man. Pity more people can't have the same attitude because ANY of the local footpaths are fair game for greedy landowners to close at any time. Unless people take a stand against against footpath closures, then they have no right to complain about it when there no footpaths left. Honestly some people are so lazy. It takes no effort at all just to drop the footpath man an email or letter and they really can't be bothered. It's very easy for people to moan a lot and then expect other people to object on their behalf. Not impressed at all by some humans. Shameful it is. SAVE OUR PATHS !!!
Friday
24th February
We had to walk by the river yesterday because storm Doris was blowing a hooley and Boss Woman thought it was too dangerous to go in the woods.The river was very turbulent and looked like it was boiling and branches were flying off the willow trees all over the path. In fact, on the way through the woods today, there was a MASSIVE rotten tree that had fallen right across the path that must have got blown down by Doris. There was a notice on the fence saying that 2 little Jack Russell type terriers, Eddie and Alfie had run away and got lost in the woods yesterday while out on their walk. They both had zap collars on which apparently did not work.
Monday
27th February
Some good news today. Alfie the missing red and white Jack Russell has been found wandering near the car park. Bad news is that his brother Eddie, the ginger brown Jack Russell is still missing. A very patronising woman (who doesn't like us dogs) power walking on the Thames path, wearing nice clean clothes and LIPSTICK!! was looking at Boss Woman walking at a steady pace with us and with her very muddy boots, well worn trousers and dog walking jacket on and was telling Boss Woman what a good walker she was, implying that Boss Woman was not. LOL, ha ha, it was VERY funny. Let me tell you that my Boss Woman has walked the Lyke Wake walk (41 miles in 19 hours), 3 peaks challenge walk in under 12 hours, Dales Way (81 miles), Great Glen Way (79 miles), West Highland Way (96 miles), Ridgeway (87 miles) twice, Inca trail, Everest path trail, Annupurna path, besides walking to the top of most of the highest mountains in the UK, walked in the high Atlas, Andes, HImalayas, Pyrenees and Dolomites and literally walked thousands of miles, so she hardly needs a lipstick wearing snob who power walks for 4.5 miles once in a blue moon, on the very easy Thames path to tell her just what constitutes a good walker. Boss Woman just looked at her with sympathy :-)
Wednesday
1st March
Sad news. Eddie the little ginger Jack Russell terrier that was missing, has now been found dead. Boss Woman has just realised looking at the photo, that the horse that tried to eat me alive only had one eye! Explains everything then. LOL
Tuesday
7th March
So we have a little person staying with us for a short time. I like her a lot and give her loads of kisses. I really don't mind her looking in my ears, in my eyes, up my nose, poking my toes and asking Boss Woman how I am made. She likes cuddling me all the time and she IS funny when she thinks I need to go to the bathroom so I can go to the toilet. My fur is so shiny because she likes brushing me all the time and she never gets tired of chucking the ball for me. We also get to stay longer in the woods because when she goes for a walk with us, she has to examine every leaf, look at all the insects, pick up every stick and climb every fallen down tree. Boss Woman keeps an eye on us though and when I get tired of all the attention, then Boss Woman gets me out of the way. She said I have to scare the T Rex away if we see it in the woods.
Monday
13th March
Had a lovely sunshiney walk in the fields and woods today. Spring is well on it's way. The primroses and daffoldils are now in bloom and the blossom on the trees is nice and stinky (Boss Woman likes the smell). When we were walking through the woods, someone told Boss Woman that they had looked at my website and they thought it was cool and asked Boss Woman who had made it for me. Well Boss Woman has made it for me of course! No one else understands me as much as Boss Woman and they could not put into words all that I was thinking and doing as well as my Boss Woman can. Yes, Boss Woman takes all the pictures as well. :-)

17th March

Boss Woman's birthday today. Had a house full of people and 2 little people here and it has been very noisy and busy. I didn't think much of the happy birthday song but Boss Woman seemed happy with it and she got some nice presents and loads of chocolates and a big chocolate birthday cake. Me and Amber weren't allowed to share it, all we had was pilchards instead. I took myself off to my bed. I don't like it noisy and busy.
Sunday
19th March
Had a very nice walk through the woods from Caversham and over to Pangbourne, 6.83 miles. The primroses were all out and Boss Woman took some photos of me sat on top of them. We didn't see one squirrel or a single rabbit though. Except for an ignorant woman who glared angrily at me and Polly and deliberately walked into Boss Woman on Whitchurch bridge, we met some very nice people who made a right fuss of us and we met 2 pug puppies were a bit lively so Polly told them off.
Tuesday
21st March
The slimy stuff in the pond has now turned into black squiggly things called tadpoles. Boss Woman has told me to keep out of the pond and not to go poking my nose in them, OR ELSE. They don't look very edible.
Thursday
23rd March

Saw the very handsome Prince, the lovely white Samoyed down the field today with his Boss Woman. He is still a bit annoying but we have good fun chasing him. Amber always tries to grab is fur and I side swipe him, but he still comes back for more. I got into big trouble on the way back. There was a man on his hands and knees laying some blocks on a driveway and he had just put a layer of lovely soft sand down to bed the blocks on. Well, I walked up to him to say hello, only thing was, I walked on his newly laid sand, then I walked back to Boss Woman on his sand, leaving even more paw prints, then I went up to him again to say hello because he didn't acknowledge me the first time, leaving loads more lovely deep pawprints in his sand. He was NOT happy. The other workman went ..... OOOPS !!

Wednesday
29th March
A Heron flew very low over the garden this morning, obviously eyeing up our wildlife pond. Luckily Boss Woman put some mesh over where the tadpoles are to protect from the greedy birds. Safe for now anyway, until they start hopping off.
Sunday
2nd April

Just a little word to say that as I am getting older I am much less tolerant of annoying dogs than I used to be. I never go up to other dogs and annoy them, it is only if they approach me and jump on me or try and dominate me that I growl. Anyway, we had a lovely walk today, almost 5.5 miles. On the way back there was a fussy old woman with 2 terrier types. Apparently one was on lead because if they were both off lead they would both run away and she reckoned if one was on lead then the other one (off lead) would stay close by. That was the theory anyway. One of the terriers was jumping up at me so I growled at it, I didn't try and bite it, I just growled to tell it off. The woman shouted at me but Boss Woman told her that mine was a normal reaction to an annoying dog and that her dog needed to learn some manners. Pfffft the woman was not impressed, then she told Boss Woman that once she tried to take a rabbit off her dog that it had caught and that the dog had growled and went to bite her :-( I seriously think that the woman needs to train her dog properly otherwise it might have to get put to death if it bites a random person and it would be HER fault, not the dogs. Yes, imagine if a Staffie had growled and gone to bite someone, it would more than likely get put to death without any further questions. Some people just have no idea at all how to look after and train us dogs.

Wednesday
5th April
Had a lovely walk by the Kennet and Avon canal and saw the big fat black and white snuffly nosed bulldog which belongs to one of the people on the canal boats and we also saw a grumpy hissy faced swan and some beautiful butterflies that kept flying around my face. Luckily Boss Woman had taken plenty of water for us because it was very warm. We could have drunk the canal water but Boss Woman said it is very dirty and polluted so best to stick to bottled water she had taken in her rucsack. Sometimes me and Polly go and say hello to a lot of the boat people and one time, someone even asked Boss Woman if they could take me and Polly on their boat for 5 minutes (we didn't like it actually because Boss Woman was still on the bankside and me and Polly were worried in case they sailed off and dognapped us). Well today I went up to say hello to some people on a boat but what I hadn't realised was that it was just setting off. I had the shock of my life! I was just about to step on board when it floated away. The people on the boat nearly fell overboard laughing. Pffft it wasn't THAT funny.

Friday
7th April

 

interesting 5.95 mile walk over to Ham Bridge on the Kennet and Avon canal. Boss Woman was talking to this man who worked for the canal people and he said that him and his colleague every single week, walked the whole length of the Kennet and Avon canal between them to check on the state of the canal and the people on the boats that were using it. Boss Woman said he should get a dog to walk it with but the man said that some of the boat people had grumpy dogs so he thought it would not be a good idea to have his own dog in case it got attacked. He was telling Boss Woman that the boat people should have a licence costing £1000 per year to use the canals but not everyone buys a licence. Boss Woman was telling the man that for the next few days we are going to do a few days of walking by the Kennet and Avon canal.
Saturday
8th April

7.42 mile walk today from Benham Marsh, where Big Guy dropped us off and we walked back to Thatcham. Not really liking this walk much because of all the cyclists whizzing past at high speed and not being very careful about me and Amber at the side of the path. They don't seem to care or even think about that if they caught us with their wheels, they could easily break our legs or worse and some of them were even doing trick cycling. It is quite shocking that a public footpath is shared by idiot cyclists who are actually very dangerous for us dogs or small children and they have the cheek to be rude to Boss Woman because she deliberately stands in the middle of the path with the intention that they have to manouvre around her to force them to at least slightly slow down. What these fools (some of them lycra clad) fail to realise is that first and foremost it is a public FOOTPATH only shared by cyclists AND they are supposed to show consideration to walkers (which they didn't). Honestly they are the first to complain if motorists don't show them consideration, drive too close to them, are rude to them and almost run into them. Anyway, as we walked through Newbury, there were 2 women one of which was from South Africa and they made a right fuss of us. I think the woman from South Africa said she used to have a Staffie but now has 2 Sausage dogs. What? How could you prefer Sausage dogs to Staffies? Pfffft. The very nice woman from South Africa had white trousers on, so of course I had to leave a few paw marks on them just to remind her of me.

Monday
10th April
Big Guy dropped us off again at Benham Marsh and we walked 5.66 miles into Hungerford and we were going to catch the train back to Thatcham but it was cancelled (apparently due to signalling problems) so Big Guy had to pick us up. Lovely walk and not quite so many cyclists but still we met a few stupid ones. We stopped for a few minutes in Kintbury where Boss Woman chatted to a young lad who told her about the horse drawn barges that were due to start working again this week. I think we might be doing this walk again in the near future because Boss Woman was saying that she wanted to get some photos of the horse drawn barges.
Tuesday
11th April

Bit of a longer walk today, 8.59 miles and me and Amber were very tired when we got back. I think Boss Woman is forgetting that me and Amber aren't young dogs anymore and we get tired after long walks these days. It was a very lovely peaceful walk from Crofton up to Hungerford and then we caught the train back to Thatcham and luckily the trains were running today so Big Guy didn't have to pick us up. Soon after we set off, we passed some boat people who lived on their boats permanently and of course Boss Woman had to stop and chat. A Staffie type black dog ran out to greet us from one of the boats, which me and Amber weren't keen on, so Boss Woman shouted to the owner to get her dog away because it was pestering us. Another boat person had a very grumpy bad tempered Staffie type dog tied up to his boat and it had a muzzle on because the owner said it had a tendency to bite other dogs so he was ordered by the Police to muzzle it or it would have to be put to death. Boss Woman seemed to like it even though me and Amber didn't. It was growling and barking and making a right racket as we walked past. We saw (and chased) a few Herons and we saw a sparkly green/blue coloured Kingfisher.

Wednesday
12th April

Tonight I heard shooting so I shouted at Big Guy to go and have a look and when Big Guy went into the garden he heard someone someone shooting as well from the field at the bottom of the garden AND they were shining their very powerful lamp into our garden. Boss Woman called the cops and they went to speak to them to check their gun licences. Apparently the men were shooting rabbits and foxes, in the night, in the dark, near our fence and the cops didn't even arrest them because the men had permission off the local landowner Venner and they claimed they were only shooting rabbits and foxes, because apparently there is a rabbit problem. Well that is all very well, but the deer come into our garden for safety because people are often shooting in the fields behind AND we haven't seen the deer for about 3 weeks now, so we can only assume that they shot the deer as well even though they said they didn't when Big Guy asked them. The field where they were shooting also backs onto a railway line so it isn't exactly the safest place to be shooting anything, especially in the pitch black. After the cops had gone, one of the men who had been shooting came to our door to explain himself to Big Guy and Boss Woman which they thought was a very weird and very intimidating thing to do. There the man was, about the height of a garden gnome, dressed in combat clothes, with his gun still in his car, trying to justify his actions. Me and Amber went to check him out and we didn't like him at all and we didn't even wag our tails or greet him. He was horrible. Boss Woman reckons if he wants to go shooting, he should join the army, but being a nasty horrible coward he would rather shoot something that wouldn't shoot back at him. The man said that he had shot a dog fox just outside our garden fence, so if me and Polly had been stood in OUR garden behind the fence, we might have been shot as well. What the dangerous fools don't appreciate is that by shooting the foxes they make the rabbit situation worse. Last year when the fox was feeding her young, the foxes were busy all day hunting and catching rabbits to take back for their babies. Makes no sense at all what they were doing except that they just like killing for the sake of it. They were shining their powerful lamps into the trees as well, which was worrying for Boss Woman because we have barn owls nesting around here and they could be shot along with pigeons or anything else the murdering idiots decided on.

Thursday
13th April

Beautiful peaceful walk (with only one stupid cyclist) from near Pewsey up to Bedwyn, 8.78 miles, where we caught the train back. Again at the side of the canal as we have done all week. The paths were a bit narrower on this section and some of it was a bit near the side so Boss Woman had to be a bit careful so she didn't fall in. On the way past some boat people there was a ginger cat that didn't like me chasing it and tried to scratch me and further on by some more boats we saw a Persian cat that looked evil so I left alone and didn't chase it. Boss Woman saw a green snake swimming across the canal but she wouldn't let me and Amber inspect it, just in case it swallowed us up like a Python would. We passed the Bruce Tunnel 459 metres long but we couldn't go through it because there was no towpath so we had to walk over the top which was just as well because it looked dark and scary. Further on we saw the first swallow of the year, skimming the canal for flies, or maybe it was having a drink from the filthy canal water, I am not sure. As we got near Bedwyn, there was a posh talking man with 3 not very posh dogs. There were 2 long haired pointer type dogs and a dopey brown spaniel. Anyway the long haired pointer type dogs went mental as we walked past and tried to attack me and Amber and because they were so strong they almost pulled the man into the canal. Actually it would have served him right if they had, he should have trained them better, they were VERY badly behaved.

Monday
17th April

Nice 5.83 mile walk up to Ham Bridge and back on the Kennet and Avon Canal and we saw loads of stuff going on. First of all there was a Canal Trust boat which had slipped it's moorings and was blocking the canal, so some people had to push it back and tie it up again. Then we saw a teenage guy on a black skatepark type bike, lurking about near the lock, he was laying on the floor and retrieved something from under the lock workings. After that we saw an Albanian man who was pulling his boat with a rope down the canal, he said it was because the boat had no engine and he needed it moving further down the canal. Then we saw a stinky woman who smelled of cigarettes and booze - she was a bit loud and a bit drunk AND she was in charge of 2 adult huge huskies and a puppy husky. She was telling Boss Woman that one of them had bitten someone and they had to have 17 stitches. Seriously? Not put to death apparently, because she rehabilated it. There was a man with a lovely miniature dachshund, no taller than about 6" and as he passed the stinky drunk woman on the narrow path he picked his dog up because he said his dog might rip the throats out of the huge huskies and he couldn't risk his dog hurting them. LOL He also said the woman was pissed, whatever that means. Further on then we met a gang of people walking together, all strung across the path, none of them moving out of the way, so Boss Woman had to walk right at the very edge of the path to make way for them. I REALLY do think that a lot of humans need to go on a training course, just like I did as a puppy so they can learn some manners and discipline. it's just appalling the way some humans carry on. Then, just as we got to the lock and about to come off the canal walk, we sat watching some farmers and their cows. Apparently the farmers were tagging the cow's ears with a number of some sort on it and putting some elastic bands around their testicles to make them drop off so they turned from bulls into bullocks. The animals didn't half squirm and it looked like it was hurting them. What was really funny though was that they had a little French Bulldog following behind the cows to help herd them. I could have done a better job actually.

Tuesday
18th April
All the lovely Bluebells and Cowslips are out now and Boss Woman keeps making me sit on them to take loads of photos. Good job it is a bit cold so there aren't so many bees after the pollen, otherwise I could get stung :-( Just walking down from the woods this morning, on the narrow path near the gate and I was faced with a stupid little twerp of a kid, probably about 10 years old, pointing a toy gun directly at my face. Boss Woman was NOT impressed and shouted at the kid DO NOT DO IT, the kid just ignored her so Boss Woman shouted again and went marching up to him, just as the kid's mother appeared and is like .... Billy ..... duuuuuhh .... doooooon't dooooo it. I mean, it could have been a pellet gun or anything, I didn't know what sort of gun it was. It's a good job I am a well trained, well behaved dog, otherwise I might have reacted and growled at him.
Thursday
11th May
Very warm day today walking right to the top of the fields and through the woods. I was glad that Boss Woman had taken some drinking water for us. Met a very nice young couple who were being followed by a man with a camera. Apparently they are getting married in 3 weeks time and they were having hundreds of photos taken so when they get old, it will remind them of before they were married. Yes, they won't forget me in a hurry either. They were making such a fuss of me that I jumped up at the woman and left some lovely paw prints all over her clean trousers.

16th May
Had a lovely 6.46 mile walk today. First of all we saw Nim and his Boss Woman, Monica. Monica and my Boss Woman were comparing their tattoos. Sigh ... Then we walked down the road towards the meadow and we saw the dog trainer guy who told Boss Woman that his new puppy had broken his leg because his big adult German Shepherd had jumped on it. He also complained that he had read my dog blog and that he hadn't seen any evidence of himself on it! Then we walked over to the meadow and saw Daisy the little pug puppy. She was panting and very thirsty so Boss Woman gave her some of our water and she drank loads of it. Then Daisy's Boss Woman got chatting and we all ended up at the local cafe (where us dogs are welcome). We got to share most of Boss Woman's panini because she said it was horrible, tasteless and dry.
Friday
19th May
Loads of bags packed ready for going away. I am keeping very very close to Boss Woman and am absolutely NOT letting her out of my sight. Everywhere she goes, I am there, like velcro, stuck to her side. I want to make sure that the purple bag with the paws on that is packed with my stuff in, is going as well. I don't want her sneaking off anywhere without me. it looks like we might be missing the wedding of the year, just down the road, but I am sure there will be plenty of flag wavers without me and Polly joining them.
Sunday
21st May

Well here we are in Glastonbury. I have been before and I love it here. The climb up to the Tor is good even though it is always windy on the top. There was a guy playing his guitar and singing and loads of people stood around. Apparently they were celebrating the life of someone called Gemma who had been killed by a van in Tasmania and with her being a hippy, they thought it was a good way to celebrate. They also released loads of balloons as well, which Boss Woman thought was a rather stupid thing to do, considering all the unnecessary litter and pollution that would have caused. A little boy was running around and he kept making a fuss of me. He was a bit clumsy and he tripped over and fell on me and told me I was a naughty dog. Boss Woman told him that I was a very good dog and that I had broken his fall and saved him from getting face planted on the floor.

Monday
222nd May
Avebury today. Been here a few times and I like it here as well. Boss Woman didn't go hugging the stones or anything, we went for a lovely 6 mile walk instead. We met a man from London who was walking the Ridgeway and Boss Woman told him that we had also walked the whole of the Ridgeway, twice and he seemed suitably impressed, then we met woman called Lisa who said she was a busker and that she lived in a campervan with her friends some of the time. She was very nice and she said that I smiled at her with my eyes. It was very hot and I was glad that Boss Woman took plenty of water for us. We had to go through a field of cows and Boss Woman was scared.
Tuesday
23rd May
Been on a steam train up to Minehead today on the West Somerset Railway. We went from Bishops Lydeard up to Watchet then walked over to Washford and then caught the train up to Minehead. We had a walk around Minehead and then caught the train all the way back to Bishops Lydeard THEN on the way back to Glastonbury, Boss Woman had to stop by a railway bridge to take a photo of the Flying Scotsman steam train. She has loads of pictures of the Flying Scotsman so not sure why she needed some more. The man in Washford station was very nice and he let me and Amber go in his control room and he even let Boss Woman operate some of the levers. Very odd as well because we saw Monica, Nim's Boss Woman up in Minehad. We heard someone shout out for my Boss Woman and there Monica was, on the station platform. The ticket collector on the train was not very nice and he stood on Polly's paw. Boss Woman reckoned he was a nasty self important little man who looked and behaved just like Captain Mainwairing, whoever he is.
Friday
26th May
Went down to Durdle Door today. Never been here before and it was very nice. The beaches were dog friendly and me and Amber had a great time in the sea. We walked over the cliff tops to Lulworth Cove and then back on the beach to Durdle Door. It was very very hot though so we didn't go for a very long walk like Boss Woman had planned because me and Amber were struggling with the heat. We were helping Boss Woman look for fossils. She didn't find any and neither did we because me and Amber didn't know what fossils looked like anyway. So far this week, we have climbed up to the top of Glastonbury Tor, 4 times. Hey, guess what? When Boss Woman got herself an ice cream in Durdle Door, she bought me and Polly an ice cream as well. Not just any old ice cream, this one was Apple, Banana and Carrot and made especially for us dogs. Mmmm it was very nice and cooled us down nicely.
Sunday
28th May
It's meet the Moron day today. A stupid little man in the woods lost his black and tan dog because apparently his dog had got the scent of a bitch on heat. Mr. Moron told Boss Woman that he was annoyed because people were insisting on walking their bitches on heat which then made his dog run after them and get lost all the time. Boss Woman asked him why he hadn't had the dog's nuts taken off and he replied that he took it personally and didn't think it was a manly thing to do to his dog. Pffft what a clown!!
Wednesday
31st May
A lot more than usual squirrels in the woods today but not managed to catch one yet. A grumpy black and white Collie was being held on a short lead and fed treats as we walked past it on the top path in the woods. Boss Woman thought it was because it was going to kick off and attack me and Amber, but no .... There was a family with some little children walking behind us and the dog lunged at them and growled. Further on we saw a little black and white Staffie X that was running about looking worried. 2 women were speaking to Boss Woman and one of them suggested that Boss Woman caught it and put it on a lead, so she did. We walked further on until we found the owners. Things is, the man owner didn't even seem bothered that Boss Woman had found it and never even thanked us for taking it back. Boss Woman took it off lead and handed it over and the man just let it run away again, he said it was running to find it's Boss Woman. When it did find it's Boss Woman, she just stood there looking at it and didn't make a fuss of it or anything. THEN she looked at Boss Woman accusingly and asked her where she had found it. Honestly, some people just ought to learn a few manners. I thought we did a good job in returning it. The Collie was a nasty untrained dog and the owner was stupid. I love little children and I would have never ever growled and lunged at them. Other dogs I sometimes react to, but not children. It's a good job it was on a short lead, otherwise it would have bitten the children.
Sunday
4th June
Had a lovely 5.4 mile walk through the woods and over the meadow today. The paddle in the river Pang was well needed with it being so hot today as well. On the way back near the river Thames, there was a man that had fallen in the river while him and his wife were mooring their boat. Boss Woman went to help and held the mooring rope while his wife and another man helped pull him out. He hurt his back and his legs and he couldn't stand up. Further on we passed a macho group of 6 guys, all strutting their stuff, chests puffed out, swaggering manly down the lane and when me and Amber went past them, they got out of our way because they were scared of us and one of them nearly had a heart attack when Amber went up to him. What a bunch of girls!!!! Pfft. I went up to the man who had fallen in the river, while he was laid on the floor and gave him some licky kisses to make him better. I don't think he much appreciated my efforts though because he pushed me away.
Thursday
8th June
Usual walk over to the river Pang and had a quick dip in the water before continuing over to the meadow. On the meadow we saw a boat moored up called the SeaCelia and the old woman from the boat went over to the bushes to do her toilet. I never saw her take a poo bag with her, so I assume she just left it for someone to stand in! Coming back by the rich Arab's house and there were 2 women in a pony and trap being followed by the black labrador and dogue de bordeaux, which are guard dogs for the house. Well as we walked over the field on the perfectly legal public footpath, the dogue de bordeaux came charging down the field towards us and then at the last minute, ran back to the women. Boss Woman was a bit worried and got her phone ready to ring the Police in case it came any closer and attacked us.
Saturday
10th June
Lovely 9 mile walk around Didcot. It was a good job Boss Woman took plenty of water for us because it was thirsty work walking in the heat. Went past Fulscot Manor but it was a bit difficult walking on the public footpath across their fields because the first wooden stile had barbed wire attached to it and the 2nd, 3rd and 4th stiles were steel and they had an electric fence fastened to them THEN an electric fence was strung right across the footpath so Boss Woman had to crawl underneath it. Me and Amber managed fine because it was above our height THEN the footpath in his field at the side of the road was completely obliterated. Apparently the farmer had received nearly 600,000 euros since 1999 in subsidies, in which case then you would think he would be grateful for all this free money paid for by the taxpayers and keep the public footpaths clear for people to use. Further on we saw 3 drunken men on the old railway track path and they tried to sell Boss Woman a miniature staffie and a pitbull. Boss Woman told them that she already had 2 very nice well behaved dogs and a third dog would spoil the pack. Also she told them that even though she liked pitbulls, they were actually illegal to own so she thought it was stupid and highly irresponsible to get a dog knowing it was an illegal breed and could be taken away and put to death at any time. Then further on still on the same path, there was another drunken man offering to sell Boss Woman a pitbull as well. Pffft Boss Woman was not at all impressed and doesn't like all these people that make a lot of money by breeding their dogs without any thought for their welfare.
Monday
12th June
Today has been a very bad day for me. Boss Woman took me to the vets and left me there most of the day. The nasty vet not only gave me an injection but he made me sleep for a long time and then when I woke up, my foot and my neck hurt AND I couldn't stand up straight, I kept bumping into things when I tried to walk. Boss Woman took me home eventually but I was so tired that I just wanted to sleep all the time and didn't even want my dinner. Boss Woman told me that I had a lump taken off my foot and my neck and they had been sent away for analysis. I am not sure what that meant but it sounded serious. I didn't enoy my walk at all today. I was sad that Polly wasn't with me and I kept looking around for her but she wasn't there. When Boss Woman took me in the woods, I kept expecting Polly to jump out on me from the bushes, like she sometimes does, but no and when we got back home after the walk Polly was still not there. I was glad when Boss Woman went out later in the afternoon and came back with Polly because I missed her. Even though I was sad and missed Polly, I was still hungry and ate all my tea.
Tuesday
13th June
I feel a lot better today, although my foot hurts and so does my neck. I can't believe how much I slept yesterday, like MOST of the day. I was well hungry and ate all my dinner this afternoon. Polly chased a Red Kite down the garden, barking at it like mad, so she is back to 'normal' now.
Saturday
17th June
Boss Woman rang the vet on Thursday and got the results of the lumps that were on my foot and my face. The vet said that he had to cut a big hole to take out plenty of tissue. Apparently the lumps were cancereous but because he cut out a bigger chunk out than necessary, the surrounding tissue didn't show cancerous cells. He told Boss Woman that the cancer might not have spread and to keep a close eye on me. Well personally I didn't understand all that stuff but what I do understand is that my Boss Woman has been very upset AND not only that, I have to wear a stupid black thing over my head to stop me licking the wounds (which is making me itch by the way and driving me mad) and I can't go in the woods off lead chasing squirrels just yet.
Sunday
25th June
Boss Woman has decided that she is going to start looking after other people's cats. They won't be coming to stay with us, we have enough with our own evil cat, nooooo, she will be going to their house to feed them. She used to do that before when we lived in Scotland AND she said that she would consider letting another dog stay here while it's owner is on holiday. That's okay. We like having friends to stay, unless they are a big bouncy dog which would just annoy us, especially black labradors.
Monday
26th June
Feeling a bit better now. In fact I felt so much better that I chased 2 squirrels. I didn't catch them though, I must be getting slower in my old age. Boss Woman has been feeding me beetroot. Apparently beetroot has special compounds that can reduce cancer tumours. She is giving me beetroot every day now, which I like actually and she is going to put a couple of fresh blueberries in my dinner every day as well. She said she is prepared to try anything to help me. Phew, well at least she cares enough to give me a chance, I have many places to go, many people to meet, and many things to do yet, before I go. I still have quite a few lumps all over me but the vet checked them and said they were just fatty lumps. I AM NOT FAT. I get beetroot in my dinner as well. I am glad Polly felt a bit better today, it's better if both of us chase the squirrels, it's more fun.
Wednesday
28th June
So today we found Lola the Beagle. Nice little dog but it's owner was a bit of a halfwit. Apparently Lola had run away in the woods and where we found her was across the road from the woods and in a small housing estate. Boss Woman clipped her on lead and then we went to find the owner. Not surprised Lola ran away the owner didn't even ask where we found her or anything. Pfffftt NOT impressed one little bit. Actually it was MY lead that Boss Woman clipped onto Lola, I just hope she didn't have any germs or fleas or anything to pass onto me.
Friday
30th June
We got joined by Hector the Defector again today, as we did yesterday. He seems to like our pack more than the one he was with. The pack he was with was led by a really loud mouthed 'professional' dog walker. It would appear that Lola, the Beagle that ran away on Wednesday was also part of the same pack. Apparently the 'professional' dog walker is fully insured, according to the instructions on the side of her van. Well she would need to be at the rate at which the dogs in her charge defect or run away, she would need pretty good insurance. While she was busy shouting (really loudly, like for 10 minutes) for Hector because he was following us and ignoring her, the spaniel in her pack legged it into the woods so she started shouting at him as well. Seriously? Glad I am not in her pack that is for sure.

Doggers! Whenever we go past the car park at Sulham, there are a few cars that are regularly there, with lone men sat in them always on their mobiile phones and always eyeing up other men sat nearby also in their cars. According to Boss Woman they are called Doggers. Seemingly Doggers meet other likeminded weirdos, go off into the bushes for sex, usually near where people are walking because they like doing stuff like that when there is a danger of being caught by 'normal' people. Well you know what? They need a bucket of water chucking over them AND castrating. If any dog is a nuisance with his sexual urge, then they get their nuts taken off and the same should happen with these weirdos as well. Easy. My vet does stuff like that, so they could soon be taken down there and seen to. Quite a few times we have seen a dodgy man sat in his blue car, just looking across the car park at other men sat in their cars as well. Boss Woman is going to take their photos next time.
Tuesday
4th July
Well surprisingly the car park was quiet today, with hardly any cars at all. So .... if you see any men on their own in the cars, usually on their mobile phones, occasionally looking at the other sad men also sat alone in their cars, then wave to them, say hello to them and acknowledge them. Obviously they are very sad lonely men who are needing help with their sad .... I mean ... lonely lives. Let them know we care. Weird peverts I would call them.
Sunday
9th July
Well it was very hot in the woods and luckily Boss Woman had taken plenty of drinking water, which I didn't mind at all sharing with Nelson the big black labrador BUT did he really have to slobber quite so much into the water?
Friday
13th July
Been raining a bit this week so it was a bit cooler on our 3.92 mile walk today, which made it more bearable. When we got back, Boss Woman picked some tomatoes from her greenhouse and me and Amber had one each. I wasn't very keen on mine and spat it out so Amber ate that as well as her own. We also had a freshly laid egg from our hens as well. Mmm
Monday
17th July

So Keira the evil cat went out on Saturday night as usual and when she got back in Sunday morning, she was injured. Her tail was all covered in blood and half of it was hanging down. Anyway she had to go to the vets and they chopped off her tail ~ she will look even more evil than usual now!
We had a lovely 4.98 mile walk back from Basildon on the Thames path and met loads of interesting people. There was one dodgy man coming towards us blocking the path, that we didn't like, and me and Amber didn't even wag our tails at him, he was dead dodgy. He asked Boss Woman if we were okay and she said "sort of ...." LOL which seemed to scare him off enough to leave us alone. Further on we saw 2 men on a boat called Clara so while Boss Woman had a chat with them, me and Amber sat under their chairs in the shade to cool off and then further on still we saw a man who had been in the Thames for a swim, so me and Amber went in the water as well. He was fascinated watching me splashing, because what I do, I make a splash and then try and catch the water splash in my mouth, which he thought was very clever. He said me and Amber were water dogs. Then even further on, nearer home, we saw a group of Nepalese people and Boss Woman exchanged 'Namaste's' with them. We have seen these people before, when they shared their blackberries with us. Well this time, they gave Boss Woman an orange and they shared their digestive biscuits with me and Polly. We do like these people, they are very generous and also they like me and Polly and unusually are happy to share their food with us, even though we are dogs.

Monday
17th July
Lovely walk on the Kennet and Avon canal towpath today and we saw the massive barge pulling horse again. He was a bit naughty though, he kept stopping to pull branches off the tree to eat. It's raining now and I am not liking the noise coming from the sky at all, I keep barking at it to try and make it stop. Boss Woman was taking some pictures of a GIANT steam train called Union of South Africa, it was massive and puffing loads of smoke out and making a right racket. Polly didn't like it and growled and barked at it as it went past.
Wednesday
19th July
Met Dolly in the woods today, a lovely friendly 6 year old black and white Staffie X. Her owner got her from the rescue and she looked VERY pleased to be rehomed. She was dashing about all over and she wouldn't stand still. Boss Woman made a right fuss of her. Polly got into major trouble today. Boss Woman called her a disgusting animal. A bit harsh I think, but she did eat something in the woods that she wasn't supposed to, so it served her right.
Thursday
20th July
Boss Woman found a car key on our walk today, so if any local followers of my dog blog know whose it is, then can you let Boss Woman know?
Sunday
30th July
Just come back from a lovely holiday in Solva, Pembrokeshire. It was so nice to be back at the seaside because I love the sea and going swimming. We went on a few lovely dog friendly beaches near St. Davids, where most of the dogs got on just fine, except for maybe a couple of incidents when a bouncy dog came too close to us and then there was another couple of dogs on the far side of the beach that had a bit of an argument but other than that, it was fine. Little person came with us on holiday and she wanted me to sleep in her bedroom at night, which I was very glad to do so i could watch over her. She is my favourite little person in the whole world. We had some very nice walks on the coast path as well.
Monday
31st July
On our walk in the woods today we met 2 little girls and a little boy with their mum and grandma. The little girls were frightened of me and Amber, and started crying but the little boy liked us and he spent ages chucking my ball for me to fetch back to him. He was a little bit nervous in case I nipped him, but that didn't happen of course and neither would it unless he got his finger in the way of me holding onto the ball and then I accidentally might have caught his finger with my teeth but I was very careful with him because I love all children. I even did a high 5 for the little girls but they still continued to cry.
Tuesday
1st August
Happy Yorkshire day everyone! Apparently it is Yorkshire day today. Not me, I was born in Edinburgh but my Boss Woman is a Yorkshire lass.
Thursday
3rd August
Bit muddy in the woods today on our walk. A little boy of 15 month came staggering towards me with his arms out, ready to give me a cuddle, so I duly obliged and gave him some licky kisses which he liked. When it was time for him to go, he made a right fuss and was screaming and carrying on. Actually worried me and I put my head down and I was very sad because I thought I had done something wrong. The child needs more training. Boss Woman did our training with a piece of cheese, maybe it might work for him?
Friday
4th August
Had a really lovely walk by the river today. I love the water and jumping in and swimming. Bit sad walking back because down Mapledurham Drive where there used to be tumble down chalet where we often saw an old woman sat in her porch in her chair reading a book, but ever since we had some floods in 2014 we haven't seen her and now they have pulled her house down. As we were walking back we saw a man stood by his navy blue little car with a learner sign on the roof, with his hands fiddling about in a very rude place. If I was a human, I certainly would not have wanted to get into his car, I tell you!
Saturday
5th August
My birthday today, I am 10 years old. Steak for tea. I really appreciated Boss Woman singing Happy Birthday to me, although she was a bit out of tune!
Sunday
13th August
Very nice 4.24 miles walk today over by the Flint Church. On the top of the hill we met the ubiquitous slack jawed half wit who had a big fat labrador that came charging towards Amber at high speed. So Amber being only 15" high and the labrador being about 3 ft. high, me and Amber stopped it in it's tracks (as we do) before it could flatten her. The half wit shouted out "He only wants to play ......" . THEN he went off at Boss Woman for having that 'kind' of dog being out of control. Seriously?? So Boss Woman told him, very politely, to keep his dog on a lead.
Some people just are not fit to have dogs, any dogs, as they obviously are totally incapable of understanding basic doggie behaviour.
If the big fat labrador had run at little Ted, the loony little whippet puppy we were walking with yesterday, it could have broken his legs. Then who would the owner have blamed?
Monday
21st August
Evil cat was making a right racket outside the door this morning, so much that Big Guy thought she had hurt herself again. He opened the door and she walked in, cool as anything and dropped a dead mouse on the floor. Big Guy soon chucked her and the dead mouse out again. Pity, I could have had the mouse. Ever since I was a tiny puppy I have eaten mice, dead or alive. Even now, I am very good at catching mice and swallowing them live before Boss Woman can stop me. A little girl called me the cutest little dog EVER this morning. I would agree with that .....
Sunday
21st August

A few people have been enquiring about me, so just to give you an update on myself. I have been getting a bit more tired than usual recently. Boss Woman has been really worried about me because I have started lying down a lot more on our walks when she stops and putting my head on the ground like it is hurting me. If I see a squirrel or rabbit then I can find the energy to chase it but I have lost the ability to catch them anymore, but then again, I am almost 11 years old! When Boss Woman has a sit down, then I have taken to lying right at her feet, just so I can keep an eye out in case she runs off without me. Auntie Tracie at the rescue said to Boss Woman that she shouldn't fret so much, and that life is about quality not quantity and I must say I have had a very good life here with Boss Woman looking after me, even if she does get cross with me sometimes (usually when I eat stuff I shouldn't!). I have no more lumps appearing on my foot BUT I have quite a few fatty lumps all over me that the vet said to keep an eye on. When people ask Boss Woman how I am, then she looks very sad but she has no need to worry, I still have some life left in me yet and I can still do 7 mile walks when necessary. Which, I might add, we have now walked a total of 963.5 miles, with 36.5 miles left to go, of our Viewranger 1000 mile challenge, but I think we will exceed this easily and go for about 1200 miles. We have a few people sponsoring us and the money is going to my friend at the Staffie Rescue, where Boss Woman helps. It has been a bit hot these last few days and so me and Polly were glad that Boss Woman took us for walks near the river Thames and the river Pang, so we could jump in and cool down.

Crikey, that steam train that just went past blowing it's whistle really loud, didn't half make me jump

Saturday
9th September
Had a lovely interesting 9.4 mile walk today. We had a sit down by a Trout Fishery pond and it was lovely and peaceful. We didn't go fishing though. The sky was busy. First of all, there was a lot of leaves falling down from the sky, then there was so much rain coming down that it was like walking under a waterfall, then later on there was so much crashing and banging from up in the sky that Amber was really worried. We called at the Greyhound pub and shared Boss Woman't steak sandwich. The woman who worked there made a right fuss of us and said she would bring me and Amber a treat out, but she never did. Pffft I went up to this woman to say hello but she totally ignored me and almost kicked me out of her way. Ah well. Her loss. Being a therapy dog, I could have given her therapy. She certainly needed it. I got attacked by a giant German Shepherd dog today. We were walking on the public footpath and this gormless dog just ran out from behind some buildings and attacked me. I wasn't hurt but it shook me up. Boss Woman gave me a ck over to make sure I was alright. The Boss Man was very apologetic and kept asking Boss Woman if she was sure I was okay. I might only be little but I am brave and tough.
Monday
11th September
WE DID IT !! We have now completed the Viewranger 1000 mile challenge. Today the total was 1000.8 miles. We will be walking plenty more miles before the end of the year though so perhaps we will end up walking about 1200 miles altogether. My legs are a lot shorter now as well, with all that walking.
Wednesday

Not been feeling very well this week.
