Wiggle - Day 1,471

We've been catching up with LRSE&C news and heard about these 4 little babies who are looking for new homes:

It's not often that Labrador Rescue South East & Central have cute little puppies looking for homes, but every once in a while, there's a puppy who needs the charity's help in finding a new home.  Of course being puppies, they will need extra special homes,

And if you can't adopt, just as important is sponsorship!

Wiggle - Day 1,469

We've had some nice dry mornings, where its been cool and bright, so perfect for a walk in the field.  With all the rain we've had the grass has been growing taller while the path growing smaller!

Wiggle making his way along the path:

Sofy was staying closer to me:

While Wiggle was following interesting smells and nearly getting himself lost!

Wiggle - Day 1,466

Lots of heavy rain overnight so it was very boggy and wet in the field today, so we were all splashing through the long grass:

Ball chasing took part on the path, although Sofy was flappy-eared with excitement even though she didn't have the ball!

Wiggle - Day 1,464

In between rain showers, Wiggle and Sofy have been playing outside with their toys. 

The pink & blue fluffy ducks are the favourite toys and mean lots of boinging and shredding:

Sofy likes the fluffy ducks so much, she managed to get both of them!

So Wiggle went back to chewing, whilst looking slightly sad to have lost his fluffy duck...

Happy 4th Gotcha Day, Wiggle!

Today we've been celebrating Wiggle's 4th Gotcha Day - the anniversary of when he came to live here.  I can never forget the first photo I ever saw of Wiggle:

Wiggle was coming into the care of Labrador Rescue South East & Central as his owners didn't want him anymore, so I offered to foster him and arranged to collect him as soon as I could.  Even once I'd got him home two days later, seeing Wiggle look so sad and so neglected broke my heart:

But those sad photo's are all behind Wiggle now!  Wiggle celebrated his 1st Gotcha Day in 2009 with some toys:

By Wiggle's 2nd Gotcha Day in 2010, Sofy was here:

Wiggle's 3rd Gotcha Day in 2011 - playing in the sunshine with Sofy:

And today, Wiggle's 4th Gotcha Day - flingy games:

Shredding games:

And a special nommy snack of a pork pie!

Wiggle - Day 1,461

This evening Wiggle and Sofy have enjoyed the nice evening and spent some time in the garden.   For some reason, they decided to synchronise their head movements, sniffing the air this way:

Turning a little:

And still in synch, turning towards me:

Wiggle then decided to sniff the flowers, showing his appreciation for nature....

Wiggle - Day 1,459

This afternoon we went for a walk along the old railway track, which meant crossing the main road:

Once we were over the bridge, Wiggle didn't hang around:

Sofy and I follwed as Wiggle got further ahead:

Sofy had a little rest, sitting on a bench:

We saw sheeps:

And a sheep who'd had a haircut!

And rabbits - two rabbits ran across in front of us while this little bunny was busy eating:

Sofy had also seen the rabbits so it was just as well she was on lead as I think she'd have chased after them!

Wiggle checked to see we were still following him:

Stopping to enjoy the scenery:

We decided that the old bridge would be our halfway point, so a quick picture before turning around and heading back the way we'd come:

The obligatory "Black Dog Halt" photo!

Wiggle - Day 1,458

Not such a nice weather day with strong winds and not much in the way of sunshine.  As it's not very warm, Wiggle and Sofy came with me when I popped into town to run some errands and they were happy to stop off at Maude Heath on the way home:

Although this is disappointing summer weather for humans, for Wiggle and Sofy, its perfect playtime weather:

Sofy was boinging, ear's flapping:

Running together for the ball:

And running, just because it's fun!

Wiggle lets Sofy have the ball, but isn't far away:

Sofy, looking very pleased with herself to have the ball!

Wiggle - Day 1,457

After a rainy start to the day, this evening we've had sunshine, so we had a lovely walk in the field. 

Wiggle and Sofy were having fun, running around with the ball:

Wiggle was running through the long grass:

And he kept on running!

Sofy took the ball and dropped it in the puddle:

While I was getting the ball out, Wiggle went and found himself a tennis ball in the grass, so ended up with two.  Clever Wiggle!
