Give us a break, and our dog walk
When is there going to be an end to this miserable weather, To-day was supposed to be sunny according to the weather forecast man last week, So bearing that in mind Sue, Nicky and I planned a nice walk with the dogs along the beach, what happens it was as grey as a novice's habit. and not too warm.
Widget and Stroodle
However we went on our walk and dozens of others did the same, the beach was crowded, dog walkers galore. Nicky cried off at the last minute, as where she lives near Winchester way she said it was trying to sleet and none too pleasant, it's a 40 min drive from me, so we were one dog and one person down, But Sue and I soldiered on, first she went to pick up little Jasper from her Dad's flat, I've posted about him on here before, but I've put up his photo again. There was Widget who is a Huntaway X collie, Stroodle, who is a Staffie x Poodle, Tango working sheepdog and Ruby Border collie, Jasper is a Cairn Terrier.
The dogs had a smashing time, and it did Ruby the power of good being with all these dogs who were a bit nearer her size and breed, She'd been with Mittel Spitz for six years before she came to me.
Sue's mobile phone rang and she thought it might have been from work where she is supervisor, answered it, Then I heard her say NO, Oh MY Goodness. where is he? Jasper was missing! Panic. Fortunately some people had spotted him running around frantically, caught him and read her mobile number on his collar, We were so busy gossiping we hadn't noticed he wasn't with us, however we backtracked and he was about 1/4 mile behind us. he was so happy when he heard Sue call . It was fortunate that she changed his ID disc, as her Dad would have had a heart attack if he'd got the phone call. But all's well that ends well, and we got home safe and sound with all six dogs. Us to a welcome plate of soup and rolls, and the dogs a nice biscuit, drink and a welcome sleep.,
