Sit & Watch


I didnt sleep much last night and so fell asleep for an hour in the armchair this afternoon-
Watched over by a slightly concerned william 
Who knew he was late for his walk
Welsh terriers are known for their natural habit of sitting and watching

  1. He's very well behaved for a dog late for his walk. When our two are late for their walk they let me know all about it!! How's your cold? Weather absolutely blooming awful up here - pouring rain and gales and more to come apparently! Take care x

  2. He's thinking.."I slept fine so let's go."

    1. Perfect comment.
      My Scotties are like that the silence and the stare !
      No one can sleep through that.
      William is beautiful.

      cheers, parsnip

    3. A put-upon silence. You can hear it - and you can feel it.

    4. Yup my Harriet has perfected it too. It penetrates the deepest sleep and you open your eyes
      and look straight into it !

  4. John,

    Maybe a nice brisk walk with the dogs will help you to sleep better when you return home.

    Grab yourself a nice hot chamomile tea before going to bed my friend.

  5. Looking at William, I can see why my late mother was a life-long Welsh Terrier fan.

  6. We use to have a border collie bitch and we had to spell lead "l-e-ad" and out "o-u-t" or hell would be let loose if we said those dreaded words. We always said she was half human. She's been dead ten years and we still talk about her every day. They are characters aren't they?

  7. Then Sophie must be part Welsh Terrier, John, as she does the same thing if we are but a bit off schedule.

  10. Bless him, he's a cutie. Dogs can read your mind - I only had to 'think' about taking my Airedale for a walk and she would go berserk.

  11. he looks so much like a teddy. He would look cool with a Biggles hat and goggles. He is already wind swept. Hows George and Bingley?

  12. Would this breed do well as a bark-when-stranger-at-the-door? He has such an inquisitive look.

  13. It must be a terrier thing. Angus and Fiona watched to front door for Tom to come home from work. They did it from the sofa, their heads over the arm. Eventually their rough whiskers wore through the upholstery. Speaking of..Tom whistled incessantly. A mockingbird picked up on that one year and delighted in whistling like Tom and bringing Angus and Fiona barking to the front door. We had no way of stopping it; a boisterous year or so.

  14. The man in my life sleeps so very well in his chair.
    My cat woke me this morning at six to tell me that she requested my presence to watch her eat.
    So I got up and did that. Satisfied, we both went back to bed.

      Out of all the animals at Bwthyn y llan, William has probably got the most sweetest of natures.
      He's a gentle soul

  19. I will swear that Tess, my Border Terrier, knows what day of the week it is and also can tell the time. We are creatures of habit - we eat at the same time each day, she has her walks at the same time each day, my cleaner comes on a Monday, the farmer and I always go to the Auction Mart of Friday mornings - she is ready and waiting for all these happenings. And if something changes she just sits and stares me out. Just like William (who is lovely by the way)

  20. So very sweet, he knows the schedule and you're not keeping to it.

  21. Sometimes they sits and thinks, and sometimes they just sits...

  22. How adorable! Your own Welsh guardian angel.... or was there a little biscuit crumb on your chin?

  23. He looks gravely concerned about your immortal soul.

  24. Such a sweet and patient expression William has. Lily, our goldendoodle, can tell time... when the Great Scot works late she scoots closer and closer, and 'breathes' at me. She puffs air through her nose until she gets my attention, then begins running between me and the front door; she won't stop until my sweetheart gets home or until her "No search parties!"

  25. William is adorable.
    Our little Mickey is our barn clock. He's just so excited to go to the barn every.single.time.
