A walk in the sun

2nd August 2004, late at night | Comments (16)

We’ve had such beautiful weather here recently that I thought I’d take the dog for a walk across the fields. My much-neglected camera accompanied us, so you could see Poppy, and the English countryside, in action.

    Very nice indeed, as always!

    Poppy must be the most famous dog on the t'internet.

    Well Poppy and Jordan I suppose.

    Great shots as always, Dunstan. I truly believe that dog shots are some of the best there are (although kid ones are great too). I bet Poppy was glad to see you upon your return, and you her.

    She's a Jack Russell, Nicolas.
    Long legged, short haired, completely loopy.

    Ahh... it's good to see some Poppy shots again. I was beginning to miss her.

    I'm interested in what a 'drove' is, but I realize the 'o' and 'i' keys are terribly close to one another on the keyboard.
    (Very, very, very impressed with the spell-checker)

    Steve, a 'drove' is a kind of country lane that farmers use to access their fields; the idea being that they 'drove' their cheep and cows down these lanes.

    The term also applies to the cross-country routes that farmers used to use to walk their animals to market. In those cases the droves could be hundreds of miles long. Our drove is about 300m :o)

    From for 'drove':

    "A road for driving cattle; a driftway."

    "A collection of cattle driven, or cattle collected for driving; a number of animals, as oxen, sheep, or swine, driven in a body."

    "To drive, as cattle or sheep, esp. on long journeys; to follow the occupation of a drover."

    "A flock or herd being driven in a body."

    I like the tunnel effect of the top right image. Do you get people asking if you painted poppy's eye? The amount of people who ask us that when walking our dog...

    What gets me is they think noone's thought of it before!

  13. Tristan:

    My dog's name is poppy! She's a yellow lab, though. I'm not sure if it's a common name or not where you live, but here in California I've never met another dog with the same name. We named ours after the Matilija Poppy which only grows in our area.

    Nice pictures, and a nice little dog with a very nice name. :)
