I was only sniffing …

Honest!

But somehow I ended up with a beard full of feathers whilst guarding this morning. I think I found someone’s dinner left-overs.

Actually I ‘sort of’ caught a pheasant myself the other day. Dad and I were walking around the Lakes when we came across this pheasant which was stuck in a small enclosure … great excitement on my part … I dashed in, came out with a mouthful of feathers, dashed in again … and the pheasant stopped running about obviously accepting it’s inevitable fate!  … Well, that’s no fun at all, so I sniffed at it … and walked away. It lived to see another day.

We’ve had a lot of rain in the last 2 weeks and the river by the Lakes was flowing very high. One morning me and Mum found a dead swan there 🙁 That was sad. I had a little sniff around it.

A few days later when we were up there again I saw these two swans on our side of the river quite a way away.

You can just make out the white dot in the distance. These pictures were taken with a phone camera – hence not so good.

Anyway I stopped and looked …

… and eventually sat down to watch them … for 10 minutes.

When I’d finished watching them I carried on past them without bothering them 🙂 I like swans. Later on by the river I was ‘beachcombing’ the bank and found this excellent ball!

Mum said it’s a reward for being such a good boy with the swans!

Bye for now.
