Dog-Sitting

Just a mini outing for Herman today. We’re looking after one of the in-law’s dogs for a few days, while they do the Christmas visiting rounds. So, as said beastie is only slighlty less manic than [Lee Evans](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Evans_(comedian)) on speed, we nipped to Chorlton Meadows for a bit, to try and tire her out.

Cue an hour or so of tennis ball chucking and fetching, with the word ‘fetching’ used in the sense of ‘bringing the ball back to within a few feet of you and then running away with it again, when you go to take it –then wondering why you aren’t throwing it for her any more’.

Look at the athleticism of that throwing action!

OK. I know that post wasn’t especially Herman-related, but we’ve not heard much from the boy recently so let me grasp the odd straw and make the odd tenuous link now and then, just to keep this site ticking over. OK?
