'Dotty Snippets & Offcuts

An unusual event.

Well, I added a blog to my website last night because sometimes things happen that have no relevance to anything but you just want to share. So I went to bed pondering when one of those odd little happenings might occur & prompt me to ramble on for a few minutes.   
And then last night it snowed again.
And this morning myself & our new dog Ty
stepped out of our back gate into what lies beyond.....
Those of you who already know of Ty are aware that he is a 3 year old, 7 stone rescue dog who has never had a walk in his life & has been living with our family for the last 2 months. Training him on his lead has been interesting!
This morning we stepped through out gate into the field where 2 hares were already kicking up the snow & frolicking to there hearts content.
There's nothing unusual about seeing hares at home. Most days as we're tramping across the fields we see a couple & often a deer, lots of pheasants and partridge, so Ty is getting used to sharing his domain with the wildlife.  So very impressed was I with his reserve in the face of temptation. Then we stepped through the hole in the hedge.
Well, what do you suppose met out suprised eyes!!
It was a scene from a Disney film.
At least 15 hares & a deer (they refused to line up Disney style for a head count & I discovered that I am not actually Snow White who could bid them to my home to clean & polish for me) playing & making merry in the snow!!!
What a sight!
Where had they all come from?
Myself & Ty stood in stupification for a couple of minutes slightly bewildered before Ty remembered that he's a DOGGGGG but forgot that he was attached to me by his lead. A scene not dissimilar to Turner & Hooch then played out which resulted in me on the ground in the snow hanging on to a Bull Mastiff who just couldn't contain his zest for life any longer!!!!
Unfortunately I don't have any photos of said hares, deer or shambles as freeing a hand to get the camera out wasn't an option.
Happily we are now back at the homestead, changed, dry & drinking tea.
 & the hares?
Who knows were they went
or if they'll come again.

He's finally getting his enjoyment for life back and unfortunately this involves you sliding across the snow on your backside :-) Glad he's enjoying himself!!
