With the dog I blame the wind blowing through his ears and rattling his brain cells around!

Morning all 

Good to hear your Dad is improving chicky.

Sorry to hear your aunt is unwell dove, a very worrying time.

Clarington: Any idea what it is about wind that makes them so crazy? I've noticed it too but have no idea why.

See original post

 I wish I knew Kitty! I have found the weather has a huge effect on children visiting the museum and teachers have told me a windy day can be HELLISH in the classroom but have never thought to research if anyone has investigated why.

Pauper you'll be pleased to know that Reggie won't be dining on cake; just the finest steak! (I'm a little jealous).

Most of you will know Reggie from posts around the forum.

He's 2 years old (today!) German Shepherd with a dash of husky and possibly runt of the litter as he's only 29kg. He came into our life aged 8 months when we adopted him from a rescue charity. He's not been without his problems (emotional scars from abuse and neglect not to mention a dietary problem that we're almost on top of now) but he's absolutely adorable and so very spoilt!

Save travels Chicky! It was not fun driving my little truck up the M1 yesterday with the wind blowing us about and it certainly doesn't look any less windy today.

Fidget; we've been short changed with the rain too. I need a good downpour for all my pots. All we have is wind and drizzle. Mind you I do feel for all the parents with their children on holiday trying to entertain them when everyone knows the wind does things to their behaviour!

As he learns to cock his leg you'll find he'll develop the joys of having to mark *everything* so pee spots get more varied and less of a problem.

Til then keep your watering can handy!
