When we don’t go to the park …

We have to do things for Mummy’s amusement.

This is a statute we have often walked past at Duke of York Square, but yesterday Mummy looked at it differently.  She thought …IMG_6659there’s a boy … George, that will be you!IMG_6663And the girl would be me!IMG_6664So let’s take MORE photos!

It was then that Mummy read the words on the pedestal and realised the significance of the statue called “Two Pupils”. This was the site of the Duke of York’s Royal Military School before it was moved to Dover in 1909.IMG_6666This was just one of several stops from yesterday’s running about town instead of running in the park.

More later …

May’s comment: Sometimes photo “opps” also makes me look at things I normally wouldn’t 🙂

    May, I was just thinking about George and your peace of mind, especially when you visit places neither he nor you know well. As well as the good advice about being careful because of predators, I was wondering what tracking systems are available, and if they are useful. I found this website:
    Dogtrackerplus.co.UK. I see they have a rental option…… Just a thought. I know how nail biting it is to have a dog that can’t resist a little “exploring”, especialy if you’re on your own when they go walk about (run about!) You may think its a bit OTT. Sound like you have another great trip in the pipeline!

      Hi Jill, thank you for thinking about us – we’re waiting for a newly improved system which should be out in the not too distant future. And it will just give us added peace of mind. But for now a cat bell, LED light and fluorescent coat will have to do! He does come back just he loves a wander.

    Great ideas! Yes, our dogs bring out the best in us. One does see objects in a whole new way!
    PS very adorable photosS!

    I always found that little jingle coming from a hedge very reassuring!

      So true – even yesterday at the park – when he ran off somewhere I couldn’t see him but I could hear him. And knew where to look.
