He is back!

He has returned from his travels but has been too busy to help with the blog and keep the world informed about my life. However I had a great time with Jazz but was pleased to see him back and he did bring me some presents -even if I do detect the hand of Kerri involved in the purchase.

On our walk the other day I was trotting the path along investigating things that needed it and minding my own business when there and behold there blocking my way was a penguin(Spheniscus magellanicus to those of who know)!

It was a bit embarrassing really as I was not sure what to do

He seemed to be doing his morning exercises or just trying to impress me!

I am sure a Basset could do that with some practice

Finally I did manage to squeeze past trying not to disturb him. (It is a pity that he did not afford me the same courtesy).

I think I shall stick to the hills from now on. Plenty of space and no irritating birds who think they are fish!

By the way contrary to popular beliefs penguins can fly!
