The large potato fields are proving an irresistible draw for the two Jack Russell Terriers. Now that the potatoes are in full leaf on the top of their furrows down below it is like a green leafy tunnel that is just made for sprinting along.
There are pheasants and partridges in the furrows, plus the odd muntjack deer and rabbit, not forgetting the horrible smell of the fox too. However the great sport is getting into the furrow, fannying about for a while, then setting off just as fast as you can run for the far end of the green tunnel about three hundred yards away. If some fool is waiting to take a picture at the far end you just keep your head down, everything becomes a blur and you crash into him.
Jack Russell Terriers are truly strange dogs.
