So, what have I been doing on this 'phew-wot-a-scorcher', 28 degrees C, Spring day? Well I've being building a secure run for the dogs, complete with a Caribbean style kennel for 2.
They seem quite happy with it, and as yet no eascape committee has been formed.
It will make my life just a little easier knowing they are safe outside, whilst I potter about elsewhere. I've never liked chaining them up, and this is a good alternative. When the big Aspen (off to the left) is in full leaf, it should offer additional shade.
