What’s it all about Al­fie?

Sporting Gun - - STALKING -

A com­ment was made by a passer-by the other day. Al­fie was with me and greeted them en­thu­si­as­ti­cally, as he does with every­one. I have to be hon­est, It can be a bit off­putting hav­ing a very friendly large dog look­ing you in the eye, with huge paws rest­ing on your shoul­der – but he is a softie.

The re­mark was that he was look­ing a bit scruffy. Scruffy? How dare they say that, this is Al­fie dog they are talk­ing about! It made me take a closer look and, to be fair, he did look a shade on the di­shev­elled side.

So I have a sur­prise for him. He is booked in to have his first pro­fes­sional groom­ing ses­sion. That is go­ing to be in­ter­est­ing.

Watch this space, as they say!

Threat­ened Red squir­rels are no longer a com­mon sight
