Blakeney #3

by

A characteristic of Holt, Blakeney, Wells-next-the Sea, Holkham, or indeed of anywhere in North Norfolk seems to be that every single household has at least one dog. Many seem to have two or three.

I like all these places and I was impressed to see the amount of poop that is regularly scooped. But not everyone was quite so pooticular! I tolerate pooches... but not the unscoopered poopers.

When I scowled at a particular doggy offender, it’s unrepentant owner declared, “If you don’t like dogs, you’re in the wrong place.”

“Right place, right dog, wrong owner!” I replied.

    Nice one Neville :) Irresponsible dog owners irritate me big time. Lovely series of drabbles, despite the occasional whiff of doggy-doos, which testifies to the quality of the writing methinks!

    Sounds an amazing place, and full of writers and artists sounds like my sort of haunt too.
    Myself and Mrs M have just come back from a week in Hay on Wye. Marvellous place, apart from the fact I spent too much on books! :)

    The Wye Valley was one of the options we were toying with for our holiday. It sounds terrific. Hope you both had a great time.
