Before too long I shall do a post about the farmer's sheepdog, Tip. Hopefully it will be accompanied by a few photographs. He is a tough dog and lives outside in the shed on a bed of straw. He is well protected from the weather but because he has never been indoors his coat is very thick and keeps him warm. Of course, he can't come in because he has never been house-trained.
Unlike the young lady in the photograph above who is not allowed on the furniture. Well that's the idea but as you can see, when the central heating is on the bench under the kitchen window is just too tempting and she manages to get up on it, lay her head on the pillow and go to sleep. And I just have not got the heart to move her. I should have done it the first time I caught her, because it is too late now.
She is great friends with Blackie, the farm cat and it is only a matter of time before he joins her on the bench!
