It's very strange how when you are feeling below par physically your brain doesn't function too well either. I am very sluggish today which puts me on a par with my elderly dog. Crispin is now 14. He is a big dog, a golden retriever who maintains his dignity and beauty with admirable grace.
This morning I took my solitary stroll around our garden, a field now a garden which is at least 100 yards long. Some mornings he opts out of walking. He just watches my progress as I amble along.
This morning I found the cat from next door asleep under the larch. She looked at me and chose to ignore me.
Then Crispin arrived like a slightly wonky tank. Stopping to cock his leg up he was a long way from the cat when she spotted him.
She took off, a young animal, running was no problem.
Crispin followed. I expected a sudden collapse of stout party but no, he chased her the entire length of the garden.
Adrenaline is a wonderful thing. Is it available for humans without having to chase a cat? Because I really could use some right now.
