Yesterday we went over to Rooster and Sol's village and went for a walk downriver. They decided to teach me the rudiments of swimming although I still wouldn't go in further than belly depth. Rooster is not as fast as he used to be, but still swims a mean water-fetch. But mostly we all stood around in the water - dogs and people - and I did my best to get everyone's trousers wet.

I have to show you this picture of Sol running, even though it's blurry. He's amazing. He's so huge and so fast, and as he hurtles by his feet thunder on the ground. I've a bit of a crush on him, so whenever I'm on a walk and see lurchers in the distance I go crazy thinking it might be him. So far he kindly tolerates me but seems to find my beard-pulling antics childish and annoying. But a girl can dream....

My final act of the day was to be sick in the pub garden because I had eaten too much cow poo. Better out than in, as they say.


  1. Looks like a fun day to me! :)


  2. My dearest Mojo,

    What fun you had with Rooster and Sol! I also like to get my paws a little wet, but won't go all the way in... it's scarey, isn't it? But I made a new Airedale friend on Saturday who wants to give me swimming lessons, so I might just try it sometime soon.

    That Sol does look amazing and I can see why you have a little crush on him. But I can't understand why other dogs don't like to have their beards pulled. You can tug on my beard anytime (even though I don't have much of one yet)!

    Who am I, you ask?! I am the real man of your dreams!!!
