Walking dogs for a living is wonderful, outdoors everyday, no matter the weather. Even today when it was wet and we were all soggy and muddy, I had a smile on my face. It was Billy Connolly who coined the phrase "there's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes".
You are right Billy, it's time for some new boots! I have a favourite pair of boots, had them at least 2 years and recently I had them repaired, but they are letting in the water again and by the end of 3 hours walking through wet grass and puddles, I was squelching.
Skye, Byron and Kaiser never mithered about the weather, they romped through the long, wet grass (also smiling, of course dogs can smile!) they didn't mind the squelch. Kaiser wasn't wet enough and and opted for a paddle with a stick.
Skye loved it so much she kept throwing herself down in the longest, wettest patch she could find and rolling around. I could see pure joy on her adorable face. It made my heart sing along with hers......... Best job in the world!
A BIT ABOUT ME......
We're three years on from the inception of Hanson's Hounds and its been a wonderful ride.
