Mistys first day out

This was a big day for Misty. She has been wanting to go out for the last few days, but we wanted to be around to 'supervise' her.

Misty and I got up around 8am, she had a light breakfast and then .... she was allowed out into the big, wide world for the first time in about 5 weeks. First of all she looked warily out of the door, as to make sure she was really allowed to go out. Then she took a step outside and had a good sniff of fresh air.

She climbed all over the pots outside the kitchen door. I took this great picture of her sticking her head out of an acer.

She has explored everywhere. The garden, the flowerbeds, the potager, the decking by the pool and the wood pile. I worked in the garden all day to keep an eye on her, she was very good and when I couldn't see her, she came running when I called her.

I spent the day removing grass and weeds from a long stone path that goes down the garden. It had completely disappeared in some places, and has taken most of the day to dig out all the weeds and pressure wash it all.

Of course I took a break for an hour to watch the last hour of the Tour de France. This was the final day in the mountains, finishing at the top of Mount Ventoux in Provence. It was estimated there was between half and one million spectators lining the route up the mountain. It was the first time there had been a mountain stage before the final day of the Tour. Brad Wiggins retained 4th place overall. He gave the most awesome performance. He deserves the Maillot Jaune for being such an incredible rider and making the phenomenal trasition from track to road cycling. Our other British star Mark Cavendish won his 9th stage victory yesterday, the first British rider to do so. I will be glued to the sofa tomorrow as the Tour reaches Paris and the victor is crowned

Glad little Misty was so good & didn't go mad when she encountered the big bad world for the first time since her accident.
Give her a little cuddle from me!

Hi Maggie, I gave her a few cuddles from you! We kept her in our room last night, but she is out again this morning. At last we can get rid of her litter tray!

So glad Misty is out and about again, and I bet she is too.

I've been watching the Tour too. I'm not a cycling fan - but I do admire their strength to climb those mountains - but I love the French coverage. The air tour and the views of all the castles, churches and châteaux along the route is wonderful.

We have a little Misty here in France as well - only ours is a six year old bichon frise (and another called Poppy)

Isn't it lovely the first time a young animal truly explores its outside surroundings on its own. They are always so excited
