Dog. Brains. Possibly......not.

The brown dog, Chester is nearly 5 years old. He has lived here for nearly half his life and in those 2½ years has spent quite a lot of time on one side of the door or the other. If he's in, he wants to be out - if he's out he wants to be in. You get the picture; he is no stranger to our glass doors.

I have just watched him spend a good 5 minutes investigating the wire-haired Pointer standing just inches from his nose on the other side of the glass. His reflection of course. Ears were cocked as he viewed it from all angles. A low throaty growl began to rumble. The other dog wasn't going away. In fact it began to look quite aggresive. He gave one tremendous bark. I let him out and of course there was no dog there.

As far as he was concerned he'd seen it off and there was much strutting round the garden. A sort of canine 'Victory Roll' methinks. What a hero.

Dumb dog. Bless 'im.

Don't talk to me about dumb dogs,as far as I can see the words dogs and brains do not go together at all!

Tee hee! A hero indeed, can just see him struttin' his stuff! Josh goes a bit silly when he sees himself in our full length mirror too - full of admiration for such a wonderful specimen, but knows he needs to see it off!

Ah, that's nice. My dog REALLY has no brains though- he's a tiny silly thing, but I love him.

Lovely looking dog - who need brains with those noble looks???
I loved your 1812 blog, and your mornings with the birds coming into the house - life sounds lovely on the Long Mountain!

He's a handsome chap - no brains required.
