Cat Portraits, Frank

Well I seem to be having one disaster after another this week, if it could go wrong it would go wrong. The cocker portrait I was working on ended up being smudged and I was just sooooo annoyed I had to leave it for a while to get over it and will start it again in a few days, it was just typical as I'd spent most of the day working on it and had completed quite a big chunk, why couldn't I smudge it earlier into the work! I've also had computer issues and other stuff too boring to mention but which have really got up my nose and made my hot headed temper almost reappear which it hasn't for years so I did the decent thing and got on with Frank's cat portrait which I have to say I am enjoying even though it has jumped the queue!


Also, as it was the weekend I took my furry babies for their long trek around our local woods. We love exploring and as we have very few deer, no sheep or boar (fingers crossed it stays that way forever) Stan is able to run around off his lead for as long as he wants. I've also started training him with what I remember from Willow's classes and so far so good. The wonderful thing about alsations (and I do call them that no matter what snobby german shepherd owners have to say about it, they are one and the same it's not a race war) is that they are eager to please and very trainable hence why they are used as guard dogs, police dogs, search and rescue and plain old pets. I can't think of any other breed of dog that can have so many uses to be honest.


Anyway, aside from them having won my heart...


dear old Zac decides he loves to get mucky and muddy in the woods with us, unfortunately he's getting quite old now and his back legs are causing him to stumble a little. I'm not sure what I should do as I think a lack of exercise would just make him miserable but if he were to be left at home he may seize up even more. I'm now researching what I can give him to help his joints out or we'll be off to the vets for advice in the very near future.


So these are my local woods, I think I took this photo a week or so too late as the colours had been much brighter than this when I walked this particular path the time before. However, it's still a really pretty place and all of my dogs love it!
