Ever since I sawed that Ricky went to a cemetary for a walk I was been wanting to go see one. Mum say over here we more call them churchyards. I just knew I would be able to find a church somewhere. Today it be a nice day, so I hooked mum up to my lead, Barked at her come on and off we went on a quest for a church to look at. You can click any piccures to big them.
I has not seed a church before, it is a type of building, and is holy, but not prickly like the plant. I just knew I would nose it out when I seed it. I has also beed tagged by Morgan to play Reilly’s 5 things game with the letter R. I’s gonna try and find things along my quest.
Hm, this be new, a road. I not like walking on roads too much, Mum say I is not road aware, cos I a country dog. I walks looking up at mum not at where I is going lots of the time and she be worried I will step out in the road on the thin bits. Dogs is allowed here, there be a poopy bin up there. But no church in sight.
I kept seeing these clumps of bumpy ground what had a good interesting smell to them, and also these little plants. Mum say that they mean it be spring soon. 😦 There go my chances of snow and the lumpy bits is from and animal called moles. I wonder if they like dogs? Maybe not ordinary dogs, but maybe they would like a shetland rabbit-dog kind of dog.
We wented through some gates next and into this big field. What is that building thing in the distance, could it be a church?
Only one way to find out I thoughts! I could hear some little grumblings coming from Mum about being cold but I says to her if she not gonna make it snow for me then she has to let me go see the churchyard. I’s sure she could buy some snow for me if she was not so mean.
We went through another gate, then another gate… So many gates! And I has to sit and wait at each one while mum go through and hold it open for me. Mum say there is lots of gates cos in the spring there is lots of sheeps and other things in the fields.
Weird huh? We walk across it, in the bends bits the gaps are big and my whole back leg fell through at one bit! That be scary. Know why?
Cos this was what we was walking over. I coulda turned into a green merle instead of a blue!
This was on the other side, I had a drink.
Then there was one more gate to sit and wait at. And then…
The church yard! We made it! Huruffruffruff!!! There were so many interesting things to sniff, but mum say I had to be calm and respectful for all the people what had gone for the big forever sleep. I did my very best. There be so many interesting things to sniff and see and lots of birds too.
Then we wented home. I managed not to walk into the road too!
1. Rabbits – I growed up with 7 rabbit brother and sisters, I thinks I is more like them than sheeps so that is why I say I is a shetland rabbit-dog. Now I just has 2 rabbit-dogs here and Faline stole my blog yesterday! She be so mean to me.
3. Roads. I not walk along roads often and sometime the cars can be a bit scary.
4. Ricky and Reilly. The two friends who inspired todays post. (and Morgan too, BOL!)
5. Ranger. Ranger is what Mum wanted to name me afore they got me, but she got outvoted by old Daddy. She and Daddy thinked that shelties look a bit like foxes and Ranger is one of the blue foxes in the Animals of Farthing wood books by Colin Dann, who was mum’s favourite people writer when she was a pup as he always wrote about animals and my mum was ‘an animal nut’. (she say she still be one, but her family not tease her anymore, since she not growed out of it like they all said she would) Do you think I would have made a good Ranger?
Hope yous all had a good weekend.
peeess: Faline says thank you to everyone that said a nice thing about her. She not deserve it really, she never nice to me and will not play chase and sometime she turn round and boxes me with her feets. 😦 She is a mini rex type of rabbit and very bossy! she do have soft furs on my nose though.
