Lady I

We went somewhere different again today. We walked passed residential area and came to this big field.  I could only see green land and trees as far as I could see. 

リードウォークで毎日知ったところを歩くのはつまらないので、今日は又ちょっと違う所に迷いつつ行ってみました。見渡す限りフィールド~。向こう側にはいつも行く公園があります。

We walked around the field, crossed the railway bridge, walked through our usual smaller park and headed towards home.  On our way home, there is a house where four West Highland Terriers live.  When we walk past their side gate they always bark, so Silky and I tried to hide behind mummy as usual. 

フィールドを越えていつもの小さい公園を通り抜けて家路に。途中、4匹のウエスティの家を通りかかったら聞き覚えのある声。なんとCOCOが大好きなイザベラさんがドッグシッターをしていたんです。疲れていたCOCOの疲れも嬉しさで吹っ飛んだ様でした。

However, I heard someone saying “Stop barking.  Come here.”  That voice!! That kind, gentle, warm voice with a bit of Scottish accent…That is my beloved Lady I’s voice!! 

Lady I noticed us and came out of the side gate to stroke me.  Oh my woof!!  What a lovely surprise to see Lady I!  Why are you here, Lady I?

Lady I said that she was looking after the doggies for the owner today.  After a while, mummy said we should go, but I didn’t want to.  Mummy pulled me, but I tried to stop.  Then Mummy turned the corner and it was the front gate of the Westies’ house. 

ナデナデしてもらって、さあ帰りましょう・・・と角を曲がったらその家の正面門。裏のお庭にイザベラさんがいるのを知っているCOCOは暫く粘りましたが、ランチの言葉に釣られて付いてきました。

I tried to get in but mummy said the magic ward “lunch lunch” so I gave up and followed mummy and Silky. Not that “lunch” is more important than Lady I.  Just, you know…I was hungry.

We walked a lot today, daddy!  Mummy’s pedometer showed about 8400 steps, which means that we walked about 4km!

今日は知らない歩く予定だったので万歩計を付けて行ったら約8400歩。4キロ位は歩いたって事ですよね。満足、満足。

    Oh, I should get a pedometer! I don’t think I walk that many steps daily. How many steps a day do YOU GIRLS walk?

      Donna and Shelly,
      You should get one because it is quite encouraging to see how much you achieve. We walk a lot every day but not like 4km. It was special. Love Coco and Silky and mummy

      Hello Gail,

      If mummy had a driving license she might not walk like this. In a way we might be lucky. Have a good weekend! Love Coco and Silky

  3. I especially love the last picture of you and Silky snuggling together; it shows how you are both so attached to each other. My parents’ dogs snuggle up together too. They like to lean on each other like they’re pillows.

      Hello Neurotic Workaholic,

      We slept together in the sun like that for about 20 minutes but then I moved because it was getting a bit hot. Hmmmm…using Coco as my pillow would be quite comfortable…Love Silky
