Hairy Maclary from Donaldson Dairy

Out of the gate and off for a walk went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy.... and the rest I think we can pretty much recite off by heart in our house! For anyone who is not familiar, Hairy Maclary is a fictional dog, the hero of many books written for children. The character was created by the New Zealand author Lynley Dodd. They generally involve Hairy and his friends in adventurous scenarios pitched against local cats, with an implication that the cats are more clever. Be sure to check some of these fun reads out next time you are on a visit to the library or book shop! Master 2 is obsessed with the series and has taken a shine to old Bottomly Pots (all covered in Spots). Today I pulled out some plastic lids I had collected. I blu-tacked a small stick to one of the lids, gave Master 2 some black paint and an outline of a dog and left him to creating his spotty dog!
