Each morning I let my dog out into the garden, she charges off and chases away the blackbirds, well in fact any birds. I always hope that the yellow post van does not crunch the gravel on the drive way opposite. My dog will grow in size and bark ferociously.
If I am not dressed for the outdoors there is little that I can do to get her back inside until he has delivered the post to this side of the road too. Like a demented wild thing she will tear up and down the garden hedge as he arrives at our garden gate and pops the letters into our neighbours box.
What is it about postmen and dogs?
The picture below was taken last April, the yellow gorse is in flower, and if you look carefully you can see the postmans van.
For some pictures of a well behaved German Shepherd go and visit Vagabond she has some delightful pictures of her dog in the snow.
The French word for van is caminonnette.
The French word for blackbird is merle.
The French word for wild is sauvage.
