"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Cat meets dog

On our way back from our walk this morning, we came up from the valley and found, as we usually do in that spot, Ginger Cat, who is almost always to be found under the bushes by the path. Today, Paddy spotted her from a few feet away and began to get excited and pull on the lead. The rest is as follows:
  • Ginger Cat pretends not to have any inkling that there is a dog on the horizon and stretches luxuriously.
  • Paddy attempts to lunge forward.
  • Ginger Cat turns her back and sits on the grass.
  • Paddy attempts to lunge forward.
  • We are now drawing level with the cat and I have to drag Paddy over to the side of the path as Ginger Cat certainly ain't gonna move.
  • Ginger Cat finally recognises Paddy's existence, draws herself up and arches her back. Disapproval  is oozing from every pore.
  • By now, I am using every muscle to drag Paddy past the wretched cat and on our way.
  • A few yards from home and Paddy is finally distracted, this time by a teenage squirrel taunting him from the top of a fence.
  • More dragging...
