Walk Three Hundred and Forty – Rufus, weight training

The whole day was spent shopping, cooking and cleaning in preparation for Flo’s birthday dinner - a girly evening with about fifteen friends, so I’m writing this to a backdrop of shrieks and giggles and hoots of laughter coming from the other room. At three I took a break with Rufus and Xavier and went up to our favourite spot. Rufus does so love to find the biggest, heaviest stick or small tree trunk to carry on his walk. This one was so heavy that as he strained to lift it with his jaws, and pushed with his front shoulders, his back legs came right up off the ground.

This is super! What a strange thing is a dog's mind! I hadn't realised the end of your year was up so soon - just checked - I'm really looking forward to hearing your summary!

Our old dog used to choose a stone and carry it so carefully as if it was so important - funny creatures. How's his ? eye syndrome?

Felicity, the year does seem to have zipped by. Alison thank you for asking about his eye – the vet was right, it got better on its own after about a week.

Your Rufus has been a complete star during your very nearly a year of walks.

Now are you sure you remembered to change the number each day!? ;)
