This is Fizz. I thought that I should introduce you, she goes everywhere with me.
She is not my dog. She belongs to the farmer that I rent from. She is a breed of dog called a Shih Tzu, I looked that up. It is not a proper dog at all, it’s a toy dog. Still she is my companion.
She is training to be a nature detective dog to help me with my photography.
You know what I mean when I say “Uphill struggle” don’t you?
I can’t wait to see what will happen when we meet a snake.
She is keen to show me.
Yes, well good luck with that.
She is slowly getting better. She found me a Mole the other day. She is not in this shot because I tied her to a tree while I photographed it.
Maybe I should take the same approach with snakes.
What she can’t find is her balls.
Can anyone explain to me how she can lose a bright yellow ball?
She lost two tonight. We have just been up to the Badger sett to bait the camera.
It is a funny thing having a dog that can get herself lost on the lawn but she is not very big.
She gives me a lot of trouble but I am kind to animals and I am sure that she appreciates the walks we share. One day when her training is complete I am sure she will be an asset to the team.
The phrase “soldier on” comes to mind.

You know how I love Fizz! She’s a sweetheart! Thanks for sharing.
