Thanks, Tony.

Mum is better than she's letting on. It's amazing just what she can do when she doesn't think she's being watched! :whistle:

You were missed, Batty :) Glad to hear your mum is getting better, even if she won't admit it ;)

My mother was like that. She loved the attention she got when she was poorly and would sit all day in her dressing gown playing court to all her friends. My brother had a word with her in the end. :lol:

Having spent some fruitless time looking for my tapered reamer over the past couple of weeks, I took the plunge and bought a replacement on Saturday.

Guess what I found today?

Yup :oops:

It's my own fault for not being tidy, of course.

Falls are always nasty at 'that age' :shifty: Well done you for stepping into the breach Batty while your big sis' was away - (chocolate) brownie points for doing something altruistic :clap:

Actually I'm feeling gobsmacked but pleased this afternoon - Toby was a good boy! :shock: Very 'country' situation - I took him up on the 'flat' moors (no gorse for him to disappear into) for his usual run :animals-dogrun: and, as usual chose a spot where there weren't too many sheep about - about five minutes in (just after he'd done his business - very reliable that way is Toby :lol: ) we suddenly get a small group of cattle running up the hill a little way off from us. No problem I thought and threw the ball again but in the opposite direction... next thing we know, just as Toby was turning back to me a quad bike comes shooting up as well with 2 farm dogs in tow and the couple of sheep that had been lying down having a snooze suddenly decided it was feeding time (they've been putting hay down for them still with it being so cold and horrible) and so they started chasing the cows, quad bike and farm dogs as well.
By this time Toby's spotted them all and thinks - oh boy, that looks like fun, drops the ball and hares off after the sheep - something he's never done before when there's been a ball to chase instead. Image So there I am screaming my head off at him (throat still hurts from that! :evil: ) and Toby having the time of his life when he looks back at me by the car, jumping up and down yelling, stops dead and then turns around and happily trots back to fetch his ball! :lol:

He's not the brightest dog in the world is Toby, but he loves his ball and his Mummy! Image

Well behaved Toby. :D It would have been very easy for him to get caught up in the excitement

I'm slightly more sane - which is how I know that I haven't fully recovered yet! :roll:

Well Done, Toby! :clap:

Dotsie, Kin, thanks! :D After today I feel positive it was the right decision. She wanted to take Blue for a really long walk first thing this morning and they both loved it! Had a dicey moment when he went after a squirrel, but she thankfully thought fast and let go of the leash so she didn't get pulled down. From that point on, if we saw a squirrel ahead she would hand the leash to me. Not that he couldn't take me down, but better me than her.

Batty, so glad you're back and sorry about your mom! Hope she's doing better and I hope you're recovering from helping out. It sounds like she was something of a handful.

Jan, glad you got Toby back! I can just picture you screaming at him, and him having the time of his life. :lol: I'm sure that would be hard for any dog to resist!

I think my cousins 2 year old male husky got a massive shock when I was visiting them and decided to join them for their walk, as I was holding his leash when he spotted a cat sitting on a fence. The look on his face when his leash suddenly went taut and instead of pulling my fairly frail female cousin along with him, he got stopped in his tracks was priceless, bear in mind I'm 6'1" broad shouldered and a bit overweight, it still took an effort on my part to hold him!
