Thomas the patriot

8 Oct

Poppy and Thomas

At last, young Thomas is allowed to go for walks with Poppy. He licks all our hands and jumps up to greet Poppy. His tail is working itself into a blur of excitement.

As we start off, he finds he has to make about 20 strides to Poppy’s one lope, his little legs working like pistons as he strains at his leash and tugs his owner forward to explore the magical forest.


On our way back we encounter an England flag pressed into the verge to indicate a neighbour’s allegiance in the rugby.

What’s this? he seems to say. I’m a Welsh Terrier – shall I pee on it?
