It’s our July Hyde Park Meet! And we were at the park!!! – even though it was chucking down with rain. We were early so we happily chased each other around in the green where we usually gather. After awhile, we stopped and wondered where everyone was.We went off further to see if we can spot someone else coming.
We sat and waited in the rain …And clever George took some shelter No one’s coming, Mummy! George says – “Look! A dog!!!”We didn’t mind it was not one of us, but a brown LabI watched from afar while Georgie played with himBut he too left us.Does no one want to come out and play in the rain?Then from around the corner came Mac and Maisy!!!!! Hooray!Hey, you two brave souls! And you drove all the way from Essex – you are definitely the heroics!They playedAnd played – like it did not matter that it was chucking down rainThen from the other corner came Lucca!Luca never fails to turn up – come hail or high water! They are the stoics!
We all played in the rain while George found something interesting to roll on … And continued to roll Then Maisie thought whatever it was – seems good too, so she rolled Maisie’s mummy checked out what was so interesting – but the human eyes could not see what we could smellAnd while we ran and chased, the lovely humans stood under umbrellas to talk about other things. They told us how fabulous we were for being such good sports – but no, no, no! We told them – “You humans are so amazing for coming out with us.”Think there was mutual respect all around.But after an hour in the rain, I think even the die-hards found it a bit cold. Maisie was taking shelterBut we still had to do a group photo!
Left to right – Lucca, me, George, Mac and Maisy.
There were just five of us – the smallest gathering since we started this meet two and a half years ago when we had four cockatoos on our first Hyde Park Meet. Well, actually we did have just four cockapoos! LOL! Plus a Heinz 57 – poo-poo aka George!
When we got into the car, we were two pathetic looking wet bundles Mummy put us both in each of our Doggy BagsLittle George was so cold, he was literally shaking. Mummy even wrapped a blanket around his Doggy Bag and blasted the heating – and he was still shivering.
Call us what you may – we had to do what we had to do! 🙂 It was our once a month Hyde Park Meet!
May’s comment: And finally – the lunatic!
I actually like walking in the rain but need to find the 100% waterproof coat. You would think a waxed Barbour would be but alas not. Checking out Jack Wolkfskin for days like today.
Till next month – let’s hope August will be a better meet.
