This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

May 21st

A beautiful, warm morning: sunshine and a few little clouds. Good-bye gloves, good-bye winter clothes until the appropriate season!

We left the house at 6.45 a.m. and took a leisurely stroll down the big field, interspersed with a bit of training.

In the ravens field, the bold raven's companion picked us up and followed us, taking her couple of scraps, flying off and coming back. Miss Sophie totally disregards her. 
We walked back to the spinney after a few encounters with Bart and others, and Lola. 
There, one raven sat on the roof of the changing rooms, and he cawed. He came down and landed in front of us, just as we walked round the sheds. 
If a raven can be said to look annoyed, he did ... it was, of course, my bold raven, and he got his scraps because I haven't seen him for a few days.

Walking home we met Poppy, a four-month old Chow puppy. She looks like a teddy bear, and Miss Sophie was rather keen to play with her. So I let her. It is nice to see her wag her tail and enjoy herself.

It has been getting quite hot (about 75 F) during the day. That is too hot for Miss Sophie, who was already panting in the back garden. So no afternoon report - we'll go out much later when it will be cooler.
