Merlin is a very, very old dog. We have to adapt our walks as he no longer does steps or stiles, but once he gets going he has a decent turn of speed. I slept till 5.45 am this morning (result!) so managed to get out of the door with both dogs, leads, pooh bags, coat and camera, not all of which I managed yesterday first shot.
Dog seems utterly determined to prevent me photographing buttercups.
