My turn yesterday to take the dogs for a walk, so I thought I would pop over to Clothie to check out the grass situation. Snow is forecast and I want to know my options.
There was a loud wailing and I turned around to see Monster following. I couldn’t really miss him in the hill. He is the only animal I have that stands out. Everyone else blends in nicely to almost total invisibility.
Clothie is a lovely field – exactly five acres and very useful. It is situated a short walk across the scattald (open hill).
There is an old croft house which was once used as a Free Church School, possibly around the 19th century. It is mentioned in our Parish Records.
Anyway, the cat, two dogs and I all walked the perimeter fence with made a nice walk.
As Daisy would say (and I bet she does when she reads this) “aww, look at him go!”
Ted and Pepper had a fine time too.
There was hunting.
And even some sitting and thinking.
Probably best not to ask what Monster was thinking about. He never stopped shouting, though.
