As the weather warmed up, we felt sorry for the dogs in their fur coats.
When we moved in, the previous occupants had left a sand pit, which we had often put to good use, mixing sand / cement etc. This time, we put it to use as a paddling pool for Max and Paddy.
As usual, Max thought it was a great idea, but Paddy wasn't so sure. Max was very happy splashing about in it, then running around, but Paddy thought that just walking through it was good enough for him!
