I was walking in the wood today with my six dogs. One of my dogs is a black labrador.
I met a couple with two black labradors and all the dogs mingled and chatted happily among themselves.
I bent down and made a big fuss of one of their black labradors, very nice friendly happy dog, and couldn't work out why these people were giving me such a strange look as they walked away.
I was petting my own dog!
I was asking it's name and everything - they must have thought I was a complete lunatic! Or blind as a bat.
(I'm overstudying.. my brain is fried.)
