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.
In the mornng I had to entice Harry to keep going over quite a short walk. He just wanted to be back home fast asleep.
In the afternoon everything had changed. He might dawdle for a short while, sniffing a patch of particular interest, but then the next he put in a sprint of joyful speed - running is such a joy to a dog.
A lot of new cats have moved into the neighbourhood recently. We now have two cats - not just the one Harry has known for years.
The new cat dashes around madly and often goes up the chimney.
A lady over the way had three kittens left on her front door step which have now grown up. So Harry spends more time on cat duty in our garden than ever before. He will get excited and bark at cats that don't belong, and sometimes by mistake even barks at cats that do.
From little noises uttered in sleep - half barks - it appears that there are cats there too - in dreamland.
