I was really proud of Maggie today out on our walk this morning.
Hubby and I both took her as it was a beautiful morning. Crisp and fresh, but warm enough to just wear body warmers over our jumpers though we were glad of our woolly hats.
We walked down by the lock today for a change, and met up with a couple and their dog coming from the opposite direction.
It was one of the Toy varieties on a lead, whereas Maggie was loose, and was a little cutie, but they kept their distance, keeping the extension lead just short enough so that their pup couldn’t get too close.
Maggie wasn’t too bothered, leaning across for a distant sniff but not trying to make contact.
I thought at first the dog wanted to play, but as we got closer, that was not the case, as the little teeth were chomping at the bit and the owner was making sure that they didn’t come in contact with anything.
Pleasantries were exchanged though and we had no doggie punch up or nastiness, and so continued on our prospective ways.
As we came out by the shops in the High Street, we saw them coming round the corner by the Pub.
We acknowledged each other in passing but again their little dog was gnashing the air with its teeth and I was glad that Maggie didn’t retaliate.
No contact was made, but this little chap is a dog we shall avoid.
Getting back to the boat, it finally dawned on me what the little teeth reminded me of.
I think I’ll leave now……………..
