Breed Notes - 30 Jun 2015
Gosh it’s been hot here today. The dogs are all flat out on the cold stone kitchen floor. I thought it would be nice for them to have the grandchildren’s plastic paddling pool out and full of water to splash about in so dragged it out of the garage and thought it would be the easiest thing in the world to pump it up with my bicycle pump. Wrong! The valve thing didn’t fit. Not to be beaten I found a rawlplug that looked the right size, so cut the end off and pushed one end into the paddling pool opening and the other in the bicycle pump valve. After ten minutes of foot pumping I was getting nowhere, so abandoned that idea. Next experiment was with the green fly rose sprayer, I took that to pieces and thought I had got it made as one end of the spray gun fitted firmly into the pool, and all I had to do was fix the other end to my foot pump. Another dead end, so now I’m hot and fed up with the whole idea, abandon it all and go inside to start preparing supper.

Hovawarts will just not take “No” for an answer and to our horror on chancing to look out of the sitting room window – who do we see in the fish pond, immersed in lilies and plants, tearing up the black plastic lining but .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. yes, you’re guessed it - Poppy! I will try in town tomorrow to buy a paddling pool pump, and she, plus the others WILL play in it!

Thank goodness we haven’t got a show this weekend, it really is too hot for the dogs to go out. I have been looking at “staycool” coats on the internet, but they seem rather expensive, and I can guarantee that if I send for a couple the weather will break, never to be warm again, at least this year!!
