Harry Flying

This picture of Harry was taken just before he put his paw on the ejector button by mistake.

Harry on snow, sulking, ironing boards, and slimming

There was unexpected snow last Sunday and again today.

My wife has started trying to do joint dog walks with a friend, but noticed that Harry has started sulking when they spend a long time talking together. My wife wonders if this could be an old age thing. I think sulking is more a babyish thing.

Our daughter returned home this week bringing her kitten cat. The ironing board causes Harry to worry at the best of times, but this morning the kitten cat tried leaping onto the ironing board, and knocked it over. The kitten cat ran upstairs and Harry crept very very slowly out of the kitchen, at half his normal height, with tail between legs.

On her return, our daughter said that Harry must have been slimming. But he has not been on a deliberate diet. I think we are all looking slimmer since she was last here - at Christmas.

Harry on Mothering Sunday

It is Mothering Sunday (LAERTARE SUNDAY) here in the UK. The day when humans traditionally give daffodils and cards to mums

Harry hardly knew his real mother. All we can tell from looking at his Certificate of Pedigree is that she was called  Listener Girl. That was her pedigree name and may have differed from what they called her on the farm. If Harry could send her something nice it would probably not be a daffodil or card. It would be far better to send a nice stick. Harry could have got his love of chasing sticks from his mother, or maybe his father - quite possibly both.

Harry and the friendly dog

It is not every day that a female dog rolls on its back in front of Harry wagging her tail. Harry did sniff her to make sure she was OK, as any dog would. When she got up still wagging her tail Harry sniffed her once more before the owner led her away in the other direction.
