Harry is a Border Terrier. He was born in July 2000, and was named after Harry Potter. His pedigree name is Bramble Keeper. He enjoys walking, and playing games with golf balls and sticks and doing this blog.
Walking along the river I sometimes drape Harry's lead round my neck. Well today I did that, but after a bit I realised the lead was gone, and I couldn't find it. The only thing I could find to use instead was this hazard tape, left over from the flood.
Whenever we cross Drayton Road and go into Ladygrove Meadow, Harry goes mad, and starts dashing round like a March hare. (It is his old patch you see, and he starts picking up the scents of friends from puppyhood).
Today he even met one of his oldest and dearest friends 'Shadow.' In the picture Harry is running up the bank after being in the Ock, and Shadow is saying to him 'Still crazy after all these years!'.
Shadow's owner, told me all the news about the local dogs, and about who has been flooded out by the 'little' River Ock. Many people have temporary caravans in their front gardens - using the caravans as a downstairs until things get sorted.
