During the night this is what I found ....


I came down after going off for an early night , but came back down later as the tv had been left on , and I needed a slice of toast and peanut butter not to mention a cup of lemon and ginger tea .
Look at what I found , fast asleep on the sofa , Alice in the cockroaching position .
Greyhounds are just so amazing .
I had a great day today . Took her out at 8 on the Longsands and she ran some amazingly fast and huge circles on the hard sand near the old outdoor pool . She gets so much attention when she runs as she is just so fast and she runs so hard giving it everything she's got . She s a sight to behold ....
And the faces she pulls , when shes been asked to vacate a chair for human usage , she just manages to look both sheepish and put out all at once , leaving the chair very very slowly and glancing at the competition as she goes . At other times when shes all folded up on the sofa she will look sideways as you pass and her face is just so sweet .
Later I went into town and bought some cheap dog walking boots , a version of the sheepskin style Uggs , a bargain at £15 , and a couple of trendy hats for me and Nat . Over the weekend I shall go on a coat hunt for Alice as she really is starting to feel it and wants to hurry back in as soon as she can on her walks .... she 's not the only one .
CatCalls start again tomorrow , three cats for this weekend in two homes both quite close and one in particular with a delightfully playful cat who likes to chase silver paper balls and enjoys attention .
What will I find tonight when I come down I wonder .....

I think Alice is perhaps doing a spot of yoga there?

Oh my gosh that picture is adorable! It's funny how such a big dog loves to lay on it's back - a position you would think of more for a lap dog. And oh yes, looks like you may as well give up on the furniture thing - Alice knows comfort when she sees it.

Nat and I went to Borders last night and I got a little book Ive wanted for ages about Qigong ... maybe Alice has been perusing it

When I started reading your blog for the first time, I came across this picture...I thought it was a goat!

Too cute!
