Beach Run with Ed

I've met my friend Ed again on my walk....

and we got to have a run around -

plus this time it got even better

we went down on the beach for a run around

then I showed Ed how to dig holes -

he queued up to take his go...

Ed loved this game

we had a wonderful time

Hopefully we will get to do this again

Enjoying the beach

I really enjoy being down on the beach for a proper run around.   On this occasion with my little friend Hamish, who was staying again for a few days - although we waited til the end of the day when it had cooled down a bit.

 Only a few isolated walkers about

most of the people had gone home

and with the tide well out there was plenty of beach to play on, but I always like to get into the sea if I can

that was a really good way
to round off
the day

On the stairs

some people gather in kitchens, in my house it seems to be on the stairs....

strange habits these humans!

Cuddles with dad

mum just wondered is it

that dogs are like their owners

or are owners like their dogs!

I have resolved the issue I had the other day when there was a definite lack of friends on my walk....

invite my little pal Hamish to stay...

No mates

but not a sole in sight

I'm sure someone was here....

one last look back

oh well, I'll head off home then...

The Gallery

Life gets exceedingly hectic sometimes, and my busy schedule sometimes involves a rota of sitting in at the local Gallery with mum and dad....of course it is MUCH better when I can take dad's seat from him

and as you see, first there was One visitor who noticed how Seriously I take my duties...

and then there were Two....

Ahhhhh, busy busy!

Another friend

Let me introduce you to my friend Ed.....

he's a lurcher too and very like me, but has more white in his coat - we are always pleased to see each other

At the moment, where I  am still being restricted on my walks  ("thanks for that mum and dad!") Ed and I have to say hello at the end of our leads.  Ed is still young, and like me when I was younger, gets excited...so I have to tell him off sometimes...("it's training Ed")!

and after the initial excitement at seeing each other Ed decides to take a break....

It's really good meeting you Ed
and I hope we will get to
have a game on the beach
very soon

oh no...!

I'm in a bit of a frenzy today

you see somebody mentioned the Doggie Doctor again!....the routine check up about my leg...

but when we get there I'm keen to get inside

come on mum, keep up...

 and they have some goodies for sale by the looks of things...

I soon get to go in and see my doggie doctor..

who examined my poorly leg and said it did seem a little tight to move up and down  (personally I find I can jump about with no trouble)....although mum and dad restrict what I do at the moment.  Apparently we have to continue as we usually do, with walks and 'gentle' run abouts, and if it plays me up again we will go back again.

Thanks everyone for your concern about me

Message from my Secretary....

I am always doing sketches and drawings of William, as no doubt you have realised by now, but for some time have felt there was a need for a seperate space for them..... so I finally decided to take the plunge and create a seperate Add-On blog just for William sketches and drawings.

I shall post them good or bad,  they will all get a look in.   Art is fun and I intend for this to be a bit of fun too.

This blog will not alter because of it - William is very pleased about that.

Here's the name and link of the sketching and drawing one:


I hope you will stop by it sometimes

Hotel chess

Whilst staying at the Hatherley Manor Hotel...

What is this?

I didn't knock them over dad, honest

but the Connect game made
me fall over!

and I had a very good use for the
over sized Jenga, but for some
reason dad said "NO William"....
I was only going to Sniff it!

Shadow walk

Here's a short video of Dad and me (oh by the way, dad thinks he is in charge)!   - personally I just keep him in check, that way I know where he is at all times....

mum was secretly filming Shadows!
