Madai here, your canine correspondent!
Anyway my people kept throwing away the political leaflets that have been coming through the door these last few weeks so when one with Mrs Maize on it came through the letter box I followed their example, but gave it a bit of a taste test first. Not as good as the green maize!
Here's a tip to all you greenery eaters: maize gives you wind. My belly must have been fighting with it the other night because the noise was so bad that it woke me up. For once my people were awake and I think they must have been having a fresh-air craze, because they'd got the living-room windows open and were waving their hands about. Perhaps they were upset by the noisy fight in my belly because I suddenly found myself put out in the garden while they stayed inside.
More free food, this time from the June drop apples. When I came to live in Church Minshull last Autumn the apple trees in our garden were dropping big apples for me to eat. My people seemed to get upset by my attempts to follow the "five-a-day" regimen (actually for Labradors its 10-a-day) and didn't understand the explanations I put forward. The June drop apples are just snack-sized so they can be off the floor and down the Labrador throat before my man-person can shout "Madaidon'tdothatyoustupiddogit'llgiveyoutummyache". And any way it doesn't. Best of all is that I can see the other apples in the trees getting bigger!!

Well a wet welcome to you all for my third December blog. All that is needed is a few more planks of wood, another week or two of this weather and then, two by two, we can start loading the ark. Himself spent a merry few days recently siphoning water away that was coming UP the rain water soak-aways, while even I decided that it was too wet to be out in the garden and the weather — but I did let...
