So I’ll leave that wee nugget to the end…. dogs eh?!?
Well the last few days have been nap centric. Another hour and a half yesterday after putting the blog out. Really out for the count. How can anyone need that much sleep?!?
Still sleeping all night too…. anyway we were up bright and breezy this morning and totally snuck up on the housework again…. in a pincer like movement. Craig was like a man possessed and between us we blitzed the place. Floors washed…. the full bhoona.
Craig then says right we should stop for lunch. Yip starving and it must be at least 2pm….. nope 11am!!! I ate my lunch at 11am without even realising. Life in Scottish covid lockdown 2.0. 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
We kept going after lunch and Craig disappeared for a while and he was out cleaning the windows…. I couldn’t find him anywhere and would never have guessed. It feels great to be sitting tonight once everything is clean!! But a day of housework doth not an exciting blog make….
Neither does having another nap. The third in 3 days.
So I’m out for the count when the doorbell goes. I’m expecting my Amazon parcels from yesterday….
It is not Amazon. It’s one of our lovely neighbours who’s been followed home by a Red Merle Border Collie…. and where does she come?!? Yeah the house of Border Collies.
We got shoes on, picked up a lead and found some treats to try and entice it….. walked outside, round the corner of the side of the pub only to watch a Border Collie jump from the balcony of the pub down onto the ground. The house is above the pub and it ran up the steps then was spooked so jumped from there. The equivalent of jumping from a first floor window 😱
She seemed to stumble a bit but carried on moving and looked like nothing was broken. It’s got to have hurt though….
Craig managed to get her to come for some treats and then looped the lead around her neck to stop her running out onto the road. She had no collar.
It was freezing outside, Craig took her round into the back garden and by this time she was was much calmer and looking for food. She was also wolfing the natural treats we took out.
We got her into the office while the other dogs were in the sunroom. It was far too cold to be outside.
Managed to trace the owner from really close by and he came down to pick her up. She’s a farm dog and lives outside and he reckons it’s her first time off the farm. She’s 11 years old. Told him about her jump. There was blood on her lip which Craig was covered in but she seemed ok other than that. Her name is Keil.
He asked me on the phone if I wanted to keep her and said again when he came to pick her up. He breeds red Merles and has too many dogs just now. She sat down beside him and seemed more than happy to be heading home but it was lovely to be able to help her get home.
So that’s our excitement for the day. Another quiet one in front to the tv for us. So relieved that dog survived that jump. Hope to never see anything like that again. Ever.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
