Today I thought I'd show you a few more pictures of what Pickle gets up to.
He absolutely loves the snow, so he was in his element in the recent chilly weather, what with catching snowballs, rolling about in the snow and ploughing his way through some pretty deep drifts out on the downs.
Football is another favourite pastime. Recently Pickle had the opportunity to combine it with a little skating on our thickly-frozen pond. Nifty footwork, eh?
Although a country hound at heart, our handsome boy also enjoys visiting the seaside for his holidays. We've been lucky enough to find some wonderful dog-friendly pubs on the Suffolk coast where we've spent some enjoyable weekends.
Chasing pebbles into the sea is so much fun! (Almost as much fun as running into fishermen's beach tents and stealing their sandwiches and catches, but that's a whole other story...!)
There's no ocean to play in at home, so a tin bath under the apple tree is a welcome spot to cool off on a summer's day.
And best of all, is bed....Pickle likes to wind down at the end of the day, stretched out on his back, a big, silly grin on his face even while he's fast asleep.
