The last post was all about Tramp and another of his lone walks - without me! (That reminds me of what Tramp said after a trip with a group of friends: "It was OK, I suppose, but next time I'd rather go on my own with somebody else").
So today it's my turn.
First of all, I've had a haircut. I must say it makes this hot weather a bit more bearable.
Also I am rather enthusiastic about my walks as I expect you know. There's so much more to experience than he writes about, he doesn't see the half of what I get up to (thank goodness). If there's some long grass I must push into it, snout down and explore the smells. I don't know why he doesn't do that, there he is looking up at clouds. By this time of the year with things starting to dry out it isn't uncommon for me to get a piece of hay or grass seed lodged in an ear. This happened last week and although they managed to get it out for me, it caused a slight infection which is a bit uncomfortable (but quite good for getting sympathy).
The vet, who knows me quite well, has pronounced me the biggest actor among all her patients. She says that if I was human I would long ago have got to Hollywood or the Czech National Theatre. Now, I take that as a compliment.
Lastly, Tramp told me about this Solitary Walker who is into backyard camping. Just to show that he's not the only one to brave the elephants...
Keep cool ... Lady
Such is farming.
