Our morning walk
I am in charge of dog walking duties for the next week. Shelby and I headed off this morning before breakfast to check out just what had been happening along the road during the night.
There are always many new smells that need checking out. There's always lots of long grass to run thru and lovely drains to run in.
Before long Shelby was onto something! There was something hidden in the grass. And lots of frantic scratching.
Finally she found her treasure, although I don't think the poor old hedgehog would have appreciated a large dog enthusiastically uncovering it, picking it up, and dropping it in the drain!
I made Shelby pick it up again and drop it in the grass. Here it is, tightly curled, all covered in mud!
Indeed, a very special treasure.
No Shelby, we can't bring it home!
