So, we came the long way back from the vet so doggies could have a nice run in the park. We met a nice golden retriever pup called Ella and they played for a bit. We set off to saunter vaguely homewards. Guess what Byron did?

That's right, he hurled himself into the beck. After twenty seconds or so of jumping around looking confused he managed to break through the crust of ice, and splashed about happily (and smugly), with Roxy staring at him like he was a nutter. Because he IS a nutter.

By the time we got home his tail and all of his underside were just ICICLES.

Dumb Dog.

Still, he's laid in front of the fire now, still looking smug that he beat whoever covered his beck over.

I just don't think he gets "frozen". His favourite thing is hurling himself into water. Poor Mister Mat had to fish him out of the canal the other day because he couldn't get purchase on the side wall.

But would he be as lovable if he wasn't as dumb as a box of hammers? I think not!

Not dumb...he knew the water was in there...just has a different concept of fun. Really different.

What is a beck, anyway?

You're lucky your dogs are dog friendly. Ours will go after anything that moves these days, but especially dogs.

A sprinkler or a garden hose and a dog. Hours of fun, especially when you can switch it on/off at a moment's notice. ;)
