First, he had a couple of nights in the kennels ... thoroughly enjoyed his time there and then welcomed me with enthusiasm!
Then, he had fun in three different parks ...
He has adopted a few of the turtles ... no harm comes to them ... they just turn up in unexpected places!
Every day (the next two pictures are from 13th June) Dougal spends a bit of time in "his" chair!
Monday morning we had an early walk ... dawn was breaking with a very pink sky ... it is possible to see the dog in the bottom right corner of the photograph ... the white tip on Dougal's tail is the giveaway.
Tonight I noticed something new ... Dougal had managed to get the paw print fleece in the manner of a "comforter" which he seemed to hug as he slept - snored!
So far he has met the window cleaner and the gardener and a good number of parishioners! It was Parish Lunch on Sunday and he was a popular visitor, posing for photographs and making a good impression! Long may that continue.
He going to a Strawberry Tea on Thursday where he meet two other dogs ... they will have a wonderful time ... though I suspect a bath may be required when we return ... the meadow can be a tad muddy! Life is never dull for the Rectory Dog ... and there might just be a walk before bedtime this evening.
