|What a big puppy!|
It's hard to believe that he's only 5 and a half months old. He was very pleased to see me, but had had a lovely time with his pal, Rose and had been well behaved, which was a relief to hear. I think he was a bit disappointed that Rose couldn't come back with us.
We got home in time to go for a quick shop and then settle down in front of the telly for the last day of Wimbledon. I was so pleased Federer won, but the match itself was a bit disappointing. I was very sad for Cilic as it must be so hard to play badly in a final of such magnitude and seeing him break down in tears part way through was uncomfortable viewing to say the least. Anyway, that's Wimbledone now and roll on the US Open.
Today has been spent out in the sunshine meeting up with friends and their dogs. Diesel had a great afternoon playing with his pals Folly and Millie in a paddling pool. I might even have to fork out and get one for him as he had such fun. The other two weren't so keen on the water and would only go in to retrieve toys, whereas Diesel was like I remember my boys when they were small, in and out, in and out, jumping all about.
So that's us. Settling back into our normal routine. I have a couple of weeks before I head off again, this time to facilitate my annual retreat on Holy Isle off Arran. I think Diesel will be a bit disappointed as he's going to stay with Freda, who doesn't have another dog, but it might do him good to be on his own as I think Rose taught him a few tricks while he was with her e.g. rolling in horrible things and going upstairs for starters and I could well do without any more of that kind of nonsense!
