Riverside walk

 I had too many 'just one' things to sort out this morning, so it was 11.30am by the time I was able to get my act together and take the dogs out.  They aren't really morning people, so they seemed quite happy to not get up early, but I felt guilty so I decided to take them out for lunch.  By  the time we got down to the river it was very sunny, much to the delight of Rosie Roo. She considers Cornwall to be sadly lacking in sun.

But it was a bit hot for Brythen, who is more greyhound and less saluki-sunlover, and was already starting to pant, so we dived into the woods.  It's amazing how much better-behaved they are when it's hot.  They came when I called every time!

I think I alarmed a visitor from London with my scruffy old t-shirt, lurchers and very ancient crocs.  She identified me at first glance as a local, looked me up and down, and sternly told her husband to hide their Harrods bag under the table.  :-D

That top one is beautiful -- the flowers around Rosie's head and the blue sky above...

I love the texture of cow parsley.

Oh, those are beautiful!

LOL at the Londoners. Sighthound owners are obviously all highly disreputable...

Gorgeous pictures :)

I am most amused by the horrified Londoner!

One day you will lead an army of Cornish dog-lovers up Knightsbridge, and horrify the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the City of Westminster by ignoring Harrods.

You are an absolutely phenomenal photographer. That first photo is just gorgeous.

Oh, yes, that particular urban type. We have them here as well. Except maybe the ridiculous association of lurchers with thieves. If you were walking Rosie and Brythen in Boston in scruffy clothes you'd probably get a lot of delighted squees, compliments, and requests to pet them.

Rosie looks so pretty in the first one :-)

& LOL at the London lady being precious about a bag from that nasty tourist trap Harrods! /londonsnob
