Barney's Jungle Training and Holly's Diving Plans!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy & Holly back again!

We have been having some fun today, we have been counting up the number of 'Sniffs' we know and so far we have got up to Seventy Five!

Now I'm not talking about the sniff that is here today and gone tomorrow, they don't count. I'm talking about the sniffs that are always there and change subtly with the temperature or rain or sun shine or if someone has stepped on it.

Some sniffs hardly change at all and some dance about all over the place!

Now, for instance, the sniff on the stones just after the car park by The Sea Wall. Well that has loads of doggy sniffs 'cos after getting out of the car what is the first thing you want to do?

Yep! and there is a lot of that there!

There are other sniffs like along the Riverside Walk where there is a load of Goose Poo. Now that only changes if the sun is shining and it is a bit warm. Other than that it is a sort of weedy, muddy sort of sniff with a bit of shrimp thrown in as well!

Sniff No. 37
This is us on a Goose Poo, at location number thirty seven!

We were wandering along The Sea Wall when Barney jumped out of the undergrowth and shouted BOO! Bet you didn't see me! He said as he bounded along, 'I've been practising my 'Jungle Warfare trick of sneaking up on everyone'

Didn't See Me!

Holly said that she had seen and heard him coming a mile off and he made enough noise to waken all the dogs in Sheerness!

Oooo! Said Barney, who's got out of the basket on the wrong side?

I heard  you ages ago!
Then he gave Holly's ear a quick lick!

Com'on Cheer up Holly Dog!
That sorted her out!

We told him about the Oyster Shell we had seen on the beach and the funny sniff it was giving off and he said that we shouldn't sniff Oysters unless there was an 'R' in the month!

How many 'R's in June?
We had never heard of that before but didn't say anything in case it upset him!

We have been out with Old Two Legs visiting places that sell stones 'cos he wants to put them around the pond edge and in between the rocks but we couldn't find the right ones, so, he will have to come up with 'Plan No. 2'

Holly said we should put old logs and reeds by the side of the pond, just like in the parks!

Or maybe we should put a diving board by the side and we can all jump in together!

Put the Diving Board Here!
Trouble is, I've never seen her any deeper in water than getting her tummy wet, so what is all this 'Diving In' stuff?

See you tomorrow!

Daisy & Holly
