While I was uploading yesterday’s image of the wonderful sunset, I found a photo I took in the middle of the terrible flooding in Cumbria.
It was of the Furlong dog’s paws.
You need to know that for all his little quirks, the Furlong dog likes to look nice. He’s at his best when he feels clean, brushed and handsome.
So we took him for his usual walk. Normally he avoids puddles and mud, and dirty places. But on this day, the puddles were everywhere. We sloshed through but Furlong dog scrambled along banks to avoid them. Right at the end of the walk, he jumped onto a section of path that looked dry, but wasn’t.
He got muddied – on the very tips of his toes.
