Manly Monday: Meet My Pal Jimmy!


Tom
: Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend. I had a fun time yesterday because I got to go with #1 to the Percheron races in Mondoubleau! In fact, the whole of last week was lots of fun and, on Friday, I got to make an amazing new friend! His name is Jimmy.



Are you wondering why Jimmy is sitting in a bucket of water? He was cooling off after some very hard work, because Jimmy has a job!



Isn't that amazing? All on his own, Jimmy can move all those sheep! His #1 trains working sheepdogs.

And then today, I got to go to the races and I had a BALL! You see, I met this beautiful little girl and she played and played and played with me!



This morning, #1 and I are off to see Dr. C as my hind left leg is sensitive but we can't figure out why. Could you please cross your paws that it isn't anything serious?


Bibi-Chan: The other day, #1 came in with some rather unusual round things in a bowl so I had to inspect:


She said they are called gooseberries. She found a big wild bush at the far end of Tom's Big Field.

I've been good since my last HouBibi escapade. Here I am, hanging with Tommy:




Vidock: It's been raining quite a bit lately and that means that the grass is sweet again. Yum!



A boy has to keep his strength up, you know!


Wishing you all a good week!

Tommy, yoor noo friend Jimmy is really talented. Mom's step-grandfather was a farmer and many years ago he had a wonderful sheep-herding-dog like Jimmy. Mom said it was amazing the bond between dog and human ~ and how well they understood each other. Sadly the step-grandfather died many years ago now.
We hope yoor leg is OK and are sending yoo healing purrs.

Jimmy looks like a cool dude! I bet it's really hard work herding all those stubborn sheep. I hope there is nothing serious going on with your leg. Perhaps it's just a muscle cramp from all that fun you had with that little girl!

What a fun adventure, with a love interest, too! Teri wondered if gooseberries were like grapes and bad for doggies and kitties to eat? Sniffin's ok though...
