Dog tired at the Smithy


This sleepy labrador made me laugh! It was (rather uncomfortably) lying out in the sunshine on the cobbles outside Malham Smithy, in the centre of the village. These days the Malham blacksmith is Annabelle Bradley, who uses traditional techniques and contemporary designs to produce decorative items for the home and garden.

  1. As we get tired dogs also get tired sometimes. Let it take it's own time to get back!

  2. The village blacksmith certainly does not conform to the usual stereotype, but then neither does Malham.

  3. Must be a fun job. I know one blacksmith who lives the job 24-7 in my area. The dog made me smile.

  8. He looks dog tired. (Groan.) I wonder why the blacksmith decided to follow this untraditional occupation.
