The Shorkie Diaries – 22nd February 2018

IMG_8852I may have thought that having a lazy day in bed was a good idea, but it didn’t last. Hibernating isn’t really my thing. It might have been cold outside but I have to get up because there’s always so much to do.

I had to warn Boris, again, about coming into the garden. I said it was very nice to see him but, Misha is a skillful and scary hunter, even if she is smaller than he is.  All the rodents within a 20-mile radius are terrified of her.  Ollie doesn’t present much of a threat to anybody though.

Ollie says, hunting is for schmucks.  Food comes out of a tin, a sachet or a packet and is served to you in a bowl.


But Boris never listens, so I suppose it is must be true … what they say about a bird’s brain, Boris’s anyway, he has a very short memory.

It was cold today, but it is sunny.   So I put on my racing jacket and headed for the beach.  There’s no better way to warm up than having a good gallop on the beach.

Watching the seagulls relax … after I’d warmed them up as well.

0-60 in 5 seconds, that’s me.  Nobody can keep up with me and I certainly gave those seagulls a run for their money!
