Well, if you know me you’ll know just how much I love wildlife, animals, pets and especially my Cairn Terriers!
They’re adorable, mischievous, stubborn and totally out of this world! We love them!
However, now and then they do get into scrapes by rolling in something they shouldn’t when out for a walk (I’ll say no more!) or diving head first into a bush to discover a big muddy puddle to greet them when they exit!
Being small dogs their little legs don’t elevate them too well above the dirt so they collect quite a bit in their travels.
Their coats ‘self clean’ very well but occasionally they do end up needing a quick shower – especially after a rolling incident (like I said – I’ll say no more!)
This was one such occasion and I couldn’t resist sharing some of the photos with you. We even managed to catch a video clip too. Excuse the noisy hair dryer! That was Bramble being dried outside the bathroom on the landing!
If you have any pet-photos do share them if you get the chance. I’d love to see them. I’m on twitter @mecharliebrook.
My Dad has been receiving lots of well-earned TLC recently. He has undergone the first of a much-needed double hip operation. It went really well and recovery is steady. The second is a few months away.
It does mean he’s spending less time in the kitchen though. You may have heard me mention on-air, during a food show, his truly legendary crumbles. Dad is fortunate to have a lot of home grown produce from apples to rhubarb so his crumbles taste out of this world. So tasty. Dad is struggling a little to get about so I’ve just ordered the 8 piece summer crumble selection for him from the Real Pie Company. Utterly delicious and highly recommended. They’ve had fabulous reviews too. I love them all but the Apple and Blueberry is one of my favourites!
I’m now thinking perhaps I should order some for me too!
Take care and see you soon,
