    What a brilliant post Beth! It really made me laugh at the thought of all those hunting dogs coming galloping through the fields. How exciting for little Sun that must have been. She certainly has a fine Beagle howl. I love Max’s brave endeavours to keep you safe, bless him.

      Ha ha, thanks so much, Rebecca. Talk about mayhem! We have no idea what Sun was shouting, but it certainly worked. We were surrounded by mournful howlers!! Oh, I know, poor Maxy, he tries his best! 😀

      Thank you, Susan. Yes, having the hunt charging around off-piste was quite a shock!! 😀

      Aww, thank you. It really got our hearts thumping too, Nancy. We had no idea the hunt were there, and SO close! :/

    You have to laugh at the hunt even though it could have been awful if the boar had come your way. I hope Max got a medal for his brave defence.

      Yes, I agree, Carolyn, those boar can switch direction and move extremely rapidly! Teehee, poor Max, he does deserve full marks for endeavour!

    Hello Beth what a fabulous description of your walk. How great that the gloom finally lifted. I am glad the sanglier escaped. I do wish the French wouldn’t attempt to shoot everything that moves! But nothing will ever change the hunters!
    Much love Jean xxxx

      Hello Jean, Thank you very much, I’m so glad you enjoyed my yarn. Oh yes, we have had far too many foggy days. The sunshine was wonderfully welcome. Teehee, yes, the French do love their hunting. Thanks, in large part to little Sun, that big boar got clean away! 😀

    Wow! That is a lot of excitement!
    Given your abiding fondness for the late Tripod, I’m sure you weren’t disappointed that Sun misled the pack, and as you said, the hunters’ dogs were too disciplined and single-minded to get into a brawl with Max, so all’s well that ends well!

      I know, Jemille, never a dull one here! Yes, indeed, it’s awfully un-countrified of me, but I’m always glad to see an animal escape the hunters.

      Thank you, Shirley. For such a rural spot, we do seem to end up having an awful lot of adventures!

    Gosh, what a kerfuffle, Beth. I’m very glad the boar got away. The photos are lovely, though, and Sun looks such a sweetie. That was quite a baptism for a little hound!

      Oh, I know, Val! Thank you, we were so glad the boar escaped. Yes, little Sun was very proud of herself, I think Nathalie was too! 😀
