I get to come here almost every day, but as I hadn't shown it to you for a while, I thought we'd take the camera to show you how green and lush everywhere looks (yeah, largely because of all the nasty rain!).
6 out of the 7 fields are left unmown during the spring and summer, then they are cut for hay in the early autumn. This makes sure that the soil isn't enriched and means that lots of wild flowers grow alongside the grass. Humans have to keep to the grassy pathways which are cut into the fields, but us lucky doggies can run all over!
We can also do this!
As is nearly always the case, even on a lovely sunny day after days of rain, I still had the place to myself. What is wrong with all the other doggy owners? Bring your dogs here to play, they'll love you for it! And I'll love you too, cos then I'll have some friends to enjoy the fields with.
Here's a panoramic view of video of one of the fields. Pretty isn't it? You can see I am standing on one of the paths.
There are already quite a lot of flowers in the fields, but other people have told us that there will be many more before the summer is over, especially a multitude of poppies. We will let you see more photos as the summer progresses.
Of course, mum being mum, we had to have a photo call before we got down to the fun stuff. She said she wanted to get some nice "1 year old" photos. I have learned now that it's easier just to get in out of the way quickly so I can get to go off and play!I am wearing one of my birthday bandannas from Putter.
This grass is a bit tickly on your nose, I think I'm going to sneeze, a-a-achooooo!
See Boo, I will hold sticks in my paws because unlike treats, they're not all sticky and icky (well not until I've chewed them up anyway!).
With teeth the size of mine, it's only a matter of minutes before the average stick is just a pile of woodchips. I don't really eat any of it, I just like shredding it up. I could probably get a job at a wood yard. I could then buy all the treats I wanted with my earnings, whooo!
Mum says she likes this photo most out of all the ones she took today. What do you guys think? Is this my good side? Can you see I'm wearing the beautiful tag I received for my barkday from Sunshade?Hmm, well even I have to agree that this isn't the best photo! Chewing up sticks is hard work, OK?
I had a look in the woods, but there were no squirrels today, boring. Sometimes I will sit at the base of a tree for an age hoping the tree rat will come back down again.
I also had a quick dip in the stream to cool of and have a refreshing drink. It is extremely clean water, until a big bruiser like me jumps in and stirs it all up!
Last but not least I had a game of hide and seek with mum. I thought I'd be able to hide pretty easily in the long grass.
I put my head down and began a commando style raid into the undergrowth.
