Check out this cheeky chappie.When it was sunny he had been in the habit of jumping up on the beds and onto the windowsill. We foiled him recently by putting wire around the beds when they were planted up. Not to be denied his sunshine he perched on top of the water feature to get the sunshine. Inventive and determined…that’s our Freddie. I would loved to have flicked the switch to turn on the water. That’s nasty isn’t it! Would have been funny though!

    Wonderful photo! I’ve just got a dog. I’ll have similar problems with my new outdoor veg beds, which my dog thinks are for her to play on! Good solution.

    Yeah, what’s with dogs and getting sun? Our jack-russell terrier/beagle mix also does the same; and when he doesn’t get sun, he gets under the blanket in our beds. However, the big border-collie-mix does not like sun; maybe because he has black coats. He will sit in sun for a while and then go and sit in shade.

    Lovely picture. Looking like a sculpture. You should have turned on the water and then take some videos 🙂

    How adorable (and clever!) is that gorgeous boy Freddie! What a brilliant photo of him, too. I agree with you, Jane – Freddie is definitely
    doing a ‘cat thing’. Absolutely adorable. Thanks for sharing this with us, Bridget, and for the smiles Freddie brought to us today.

    Jack Russel types are so comical. Ours loves the sun too and there’s been many a time when I’ve caught him fast asleep on the table catching the sun !! Lovely Freddie.

    Aww bless :}

    Our girl loves to sunbathe. She either lays right up close to a full-length window and gets roasted or if in the garden with me she’ll sit Sphinx-like with her eyes almost closed. I know one shouldn’t anthropomorphise but I know she’s just soaking up those rays and smiling :}
