18-7-09 When is enough ,enough

Saturday morning I cycled along the bay of Blyth checking for any Terns ,it's not the best place to find them but occasionally there are some on the beach and sitting on the posts, but being a sunny morning the place was awash with dog walkers,normally you would think this was say, two people and one dog, but here there seems to be a trend to have a few more its quiet common to see people with 3 or 4 dogs and meet up with several others of similar numbers , but one old chap and his wife had NINE, nine rather large Collies,they must have one helish flock of sheep in the back garden, it took me awhile to count as they jumped around ,his missus spent her time "picking up'" ,what she could find that is ,bless her she could have done with a trolley or something , NINE dogs out twice a day 365 days a year, no wonder she walked with a stoop, anyway I thought what the hell am I doing here , I should have gone to St Mary's Island , oh!!! on second thoughts perhaps not.

I thought that miserable sod that walks up Rotary Way twice a day was bad enough with his 4/5/6 Golden Retrievers.

Imagine living next door to 9 collies?
