So it has been an odd year so far, after January’s nice walk with a pack of hounds we have all been cooped up for the last few months saying at home. Something called COVID-19 is causing all the humans to stay home.

There is a good side to this, always having someone around to get me a treat, the downside is they try and steal the settee. Don’t they know all furniture belongs to me!

Recently we have been able to go out a little so I was told it was time for my first visit to the beach.

The best bit is the chips, not so sure about the sand under by paws and the sea was shall we say interesting. I decided to keep out, I am after all a hound of distinction, swimming with the other dogs is not really something I should do. I have to keep up the standards.
