Spring is finally here.

Post by tracyp on Sun Oct 12, 2014 12:12 pm

A nicer day have I not seen in sooooooo many months!
It was 29c today, the sun was shinning, finally warming up, not a cloud in the sky, so...... we all went walkies as we do ..... Jess, Tyson & I.
All 3 of us ran like like idiots trying to find fairies in the park. (Yes! I run with my puppies like a ferral cat on a hot tin roof!)

BUT.....
Thank god no one was there or watching or they would have ordered me a lovely white jacket with straps & buckles! We three were all completely mad! Running like we had never been out before. Tyson doing neck slides down the hill, chin & neck down, ass in the air, sliding... as i ran to help him, Jess was then looking for mice in my shoes that weren't there... shocked  maybe she  just wanted my ankle or to chew on my toes? covering eyes  Jessup!!!!!!

We frolicked, we ran, we chased each other around the park. Tyson trying to bowl Jess & I over, launching himself at us as Jess barked at him, (you will be in trouble you little turd) bugger off!! She then chased me down as I ran for cover & Tyson was in hot pursuit.....
I ended up on the on my back with both of them slagging on me. rolling on floor rolling on floor rolling on floor

Get the &$#@ off me!!!! Ok...Home puppies!

What a beautiful spring day! Happy dogs, running, playing, sunshine, & dog slobber to boot! Who could ask for more! hug

I just need a jar & a scrapper now to sell doggie drool for clag!

Don't know how you all deal with it? More than 2 days in a row of rain & I would loose my mind! I don't think we've had 3 days of constant rain in my memory. It always clears, then showers, pours or storms, then it clears again....

Even in the midst of winter we have 1/2 days of no rain. Drizzle often but not for days.

dunno We're in a rainy climate, is all. happy Same as you're in a dry climate. We're used to it! A lot of people grumble about it, but it's not the end of the world - there are countries in severe droughts, where the people probably pray for rain every night.

There are many places here that pray for rain. The problem is... the ground is so dry, when the rain comes, the ground cannot absorb it. It just runs off or floods.

Exactly. happy I'm grateful for whatever rain we get, tbh. Yes, in certain areas of the UK, it can get very dangerous due to storms and flooding, but every country has its risks. Could be worse!

I saw a film once, many many years ago, where someone in the Australian outback poured a glass of water onto the ground - and it just went straight in like a sponge! Not even the tiniest temporary puddle, it just disappeared - incredible.

Yikes!

I really do feel sorry for people who live in countries where crops continuously fail, year after year, because of drought. sad And having to walk miles every day for water.
