Local elections today so popped to local polling booth. Took a photo of Bruno outside as #dogsatpollingstations is a thing
I’m on leave this week. Was still recovering from the game last night so felt a bit knackered, but got out for a 12.5 mile run. Had a meeting about a new OER project this afternoon and then sat in the garden for a bit reading in the sunshine.
The hottest day of the year apparently (note – that does not make it hot). When I have a working at home day without meetings I like to adjust my pattern, by starting around 8, finishing around 7 but having a couple of hours break in the middle. Today I took Bruno to the Merthyr Mawr sand dunes. It’s big. And sandy.
After the week in kennels last week Bruno is now making up for it with quality sofa time
Bruno has been in kennels for 3 days – he’s got a run of kennel stays coming up till April. He doesn’t mind them but sticks to me when I pick him up
Bruno likes to snuggle right in on my lap like a small dog & not the big clumsy, step on your private parts one that he is.
Had pip over for a rare visit. I like having the two dogs, they complement each other. Bruno is all affectionate, but dopey whereas pip is independent and bubbly. Here pip uses Bruno as a bum rest.
Was walking Bruno today when it started raining so we ducked into the pub
It was a year ago today that I adopted Bruno. It’s not always been easy being a single dog parent – he’s had to go into kennels when I travel & I have to get away early sometimes to get back to him. But overall it’s been great – he’d been in the home for 6 months because he was old and a staffie. He’s super affectionate and just wants a home. He is also very good at listening to my thoughts on open education
Just going with dog pics for a while
