Five Dogs, One Ball

Five Dogs, One Ball, originally uploaded by NellyMoser.

These pictures were taken five years ago soon after Bonnie came to live with us. It was probably the first time she ever engaged in play because, as I remember, she didn't really have a clue what was going on.

All those dogs, apart from Rosie the collie, are still alive but they are all quite elderly now.

Last week Bonnie had an operation to remove a growth from her leg. She seems to be doing well. Our biggest problem is getting her to rest. Given half a chance she's out in the yard or on the lawn playing and mucking about with the other dogs.

The dogs' playground is where our poly tunnel stands now. No boisterous ball fun allowed in there these days!

Love the is Charlie doing? Marymine's pack includes a queensland "Jack the farting dog" who will bring a basketball for me to throw. No idea how he can get a hold on it...funny ol fart...

Charlie has just returned from his first walk in the woods. He was keen on the walk but not so happy about the car ride. He is settling in very well but I'd still not want him to be running off the lead without close supervision.
