Archie, The Pet Shop Ripon and a rainbow

Rainbows and Muddy Paws!

Last weekend, Archie and I took the humans for a lovely long walk round the fields in Thornborough. The weather was most peculiar. It was like walking in all four seasons. We were warm then cool, dry then wet and most definitely windswept!

Archie and I found one puddle during our walk and of course had to have a little paddle. A paddle in a puddle! I even found some mud. There’s something joyful about being in mud, even the smallest amount.

Mum was very pleased I managed to stay so clean (I don’t think she noticed my paws!).

We saw some beautiful rainbows in the distance. Archie wouldn’t stay still long enough for mum to take a photograph of him under the rainbow. Obviously I willingly obliged, in exchange for a biscuit!

Archie and I love going for walks. In fact, if we had our way we would be out walking all day, every day. Unfortunately our humans can’t help us with this just yet, apparently they have ‘other stuff’ to do – like work, gardening and housework! One day……

Until then, we will await more walkies another time!
