I think all the Orkney sunshine has gone to my head, I've had a theory that the dogs, well Haggis inparticular, might actually be selkies. Haggis is a big fan of the sea, something that Peedie normally won't really go into, but these days, not to be upsurped by a puppy, he's enjoying the paddling more. Which got me to thinking, can dogs be selkies as well as, well, selkies. So with this mission in hand, we headed for the beach to see if we had a selkie in our midst. Turned out I was wrong. As we paddled deeper and deeper, nothing happened except we got wet and Haggis revealed his rather long legs. Well long for a cairn terrier, who's not a selkie, of short stature that is.
Turns out I'm not a selkie either. Which I have to say is a bit of a pity as I really like fish. Don't be too blinded by the sunshine (or my bare legs), we've in the midst of a spell of rather nice weather at the moment so we had to check out the temperature of the sea. Icy but not too bad.
