me sat looking for all the world like three crows in a row overlooking the river Teme. Beside the Dinham Bridge we watched normal folk at play. A boy with two Staffie’s having a whale of a time racing in and out of the shallows chasing unseen whatever’s, just for the sheer joy of being alive. Ellie sat to attention on hind quarters watching how the other brave half live.
‘There you are, you will one day be like that!’ I said.
Every day in every way we are making progress.
Occasionally to allay her fears I fed her a homemade carrot, cinnamon and peanut butter dog biscuit! Organic 100% wholemeal flour naturally. Ludlow, a well known foodie town, so when in Rome... it’s only right and proper Ellie gets the full weight of my cordon bleu expertise, after all?
I noticed even the ducks turned their beaks up at a family who presented them with white bread ‘fresh’ out of a plastic wrapper. Quacking and complaining they swam off in high dudgeon... ‘You might be able to get away with that sort of carry on in the lower reaches of the Thames, sadly not here in the undulating Shropshire countryside!’
The Green Cafe, our local wonderful coffee stop by the river, we three were perched exactly where the couple are sat in the middle of the picture.
How lucky are we?
