Summer lazing - sheepdog style

It's been a relatively cool 32 degrees today which has meant that we have been able to work in the fields and the garden without burning up. The boyz have watched our activity with interest and every half an hour or so they will leave the shadow of the trees and come over to check that what we're doing doesn't involve food. Some of the new oak trees are having to be watered twice a day as they're definitely suffering from heat stress. Thankfully, the olives seem to be holding up pretty well after the scorching heat of the last three or four days. At this time of the year Wilfs allergies kick in - there must be something around, a pollen or particular type of dust, that causes him to bite his paws manically. The vet wants to give him a steroid injection but I'd prefer to treat it in a less aggressive way. We'll sit out under the stars until midnight tonight by which time the two troubadors will be so tired they'll sleep all the way through - allergies or not!
